Wichita Land Bank Mission Statement
The Wichita Land Bank (WLB) will promote the revitalization of neighborhoods consistent with the Wichita: Places for People plan, through management and transfer of properties that are deemed underutilized.
Land Bank Information
The State of Kansas allows for a land bank to be formed by local governments by
adoption of an ordinance (K.S.A. 12‐5902). The State of Kansas also requires that a board of
trustees govern the land bank. In May 2021, the City Council authorized the creation of the creation of the WLB.
WLB Board of Trustees
In November 2021, the WLB Board of Trustees met for the first time. The WLB Board of Trustees meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 1:30 pm.
