MASTER PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLE PLAN
The City of Maize, in coordination with the Wichita Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (WAMPO) and a Core Team of community members, is developing Maize in Motion. The effort will result in a master plan for safe pedestrian and bicycle travel in the city. The planning process for Maize in Motion began this summer and will continue through the fall of 2018.
It will identify a future city-wide pedestrian and bicycle network, along with other improvements (parking, signage, and lighting). Maize in Motion will also suggest linkages to surrounding communities for regional connectivity. During the effort, the City, WAMPO, and Core Team will reach out to community members for feedback on issues, opportunities, recommendations, and priorities.
The City will present the draft Maize in Motion plan to Planning Commission for approval and to City Council for adoption during fall 2018. City staff, elected officials, and community members may use the final plan to pursue funding for design and construction of recommended improvements. Maize in Motion is happening in coordination with the City’s current efforts to update the Maize Comprehensive Plan and develop the Academy Arts District Master Plan.
