Last October the City of Wichita selected the Boston firm Goody Clancy to develop a plan for the revitalization of downtown Wichita. Now the draft master plan is ready, and will be presented to Wichitans on Monday June 14.
The Wichita Downtown Development Corporation wrote in a message: “The Downtown Master Plan Team has been researching, analyzing the market, listening to the community and incorporating public feedback since November. Goody Clancy will present strategies for achieving the vision, identifying resources and the type of activity and development for Downtown Wichita. Following the presentation there will be a question and answer session with the planning team. People may RSVP for the meeting at [email protected] or to (316) 264-6005.”
The event will be on Monday, June 14, at the Scottish Rite Temple at 332 E. 1st Street (northwest corner First and Topeka). The event starts at 5:30 pm with a reception and light refreshments. The actual presentation is from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
The WDDC also announced three planning workshops to be held on Wednesday June 16. The schedule for these are
8:00 am to 9:30 am: Enabling Downtown Development
3:30 am to 5:00 pm: Creating Transportation Choices

These events will be held in the Bank of America Theatre at 100 North Broadway, basement level.
The WDDC says: “Following the public meetings on June 14th and 16th, the Downtown Wichita Development Corporation, Visioneering Wichita and the City of Wichita will make presentations to groups throughout the regional community for additional public input. The Downtown Master Plan Team will incorporate the feedback gathered at the June and July presentations. The final plan will be presented in September.
