Protest petitions can be filed at any time beginning the day after the Planning Commission public hearing. However, protest petitions must be received by 5 pm on the 14th day after the Planning Commission public hearing.
Anyone can submit a protest petition. However, in order to be considered "valid," the following items must be met:
If the subject property for the planning case is in unincorporated Sedgwick County, protest petitions are to be sent to the County Clerk's Office (Ruffin Building). If the subject property for the planning case is within the city limits of Wichita, protest petitions are to be sent to the City Clerk's Office (Wichita City Hall).
Addresses are available at the end of the protest petition instructions. Protest petitions turned into the Planning Department will not be sent to the correct Clerk's Office and therefore may not be deemed valid.
