City of Wichita officials are asking residents to help identify ways to make it safer and easier to walk in Wichita. To encourage public input, City officials are hosting an open house from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 12 at City Hall, 455 N. Main, in the first floor board room.
Attendees will have multiple opportunities to learn more about the planning process and to provide input including: voting on priorities, submitting comments and drawing on maps to identify recommended future improvements. At 6 p.m., there will be an overview of the planning process and examples of pedestrian related improvements.
A flyer for the Wichita Pedestrian Master Plan Open House and more information on this civic initiative are available at www.wichita.gov
and on the project website:
In response to citizen surveys and input, the City of Wichita is working to make bicycling and walking around the city safer, easier, and more convenient. The Wichita Bicycle Master Plan was endorsed by the Wichita City Council in February 2013 and the City is working to implement the plan. The Pedestrian Master Plan is a separate document and the upcoming open house will be an exciting opportunity for individuals to provide input related to walking in Wichita.
