About The City of Wichita
The City of Wichita recognizes the necessity and responsibility for beautification of its public areas. The City Council has found that such enhancement adds to the quality of life of Wichita’s citizens, attracts tourism, and provides incentives to business to locate in the City, thereby expanding Wichita’s economic base.
