Wichita Parking & Multimodal Plan

The Wichita Parking and Multi-Modal Plan is a civic process to identify community goals related to parking, the desired relationship and role of parking to multi-modal transportation, and recommend actions to help achieve community goals.

Timeline

The project is expected to take a total of roughly 10 to 12 months, beginning in May 2018 and wrapping up in Spring 2019.

Committees

Two committees have been formed in order to help ensure that this plan meets the needs of our community. In addition to the committees, a planning team has been created to staff the planning process.

Below are brief descriptions of each committee and the planning team.
