A Little History-

In late 2015 and early 2016, the City and County respectively adopted a new joint comprehensive Plan called the Community Investments Plan 2015-2035. This Plan contains a new Wichita Urban Infill Strategy intended to encourage population and employment growth, residential and commercial development and reinvestment in the older mature neighborhoods of Wichita. To this end an Urban Infill Advisory Committee was created to provide neighborhood and community perspective/feedback on the City's urban infill development efforts. The Advisory Committee was assisted by a technical advisory group.
