Wichita Land Bank

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.
