WICHITA, Kan. - A series of open houses begins in Wichita Monday, looking at policies and investments for the next 20 years.
City officials have been building a long-term plan for more than a year, using online boards and other methods. Now City Arts will host the first public meeting, to mold the "Community Investments Plan" into shape.
The open house topics can cover everything from Wichita's economic development to health and public safety.
One activist group is already organizing for these meetings. The Peace and Social Justice Center is encouraging members to support a scenario which expands Wichita Transit, including added bus routes.
The first meeting at City Arts in Old Town is from 4:00-7:00 p.m. There's another one at the same time Wednesday at the Alford Library on South Meridian.
The other open houses will be held the next two Mondays. The April 21 site is the Wichita State University Metroplex. The Sedgwick County Extension Office will have an open house April 28.
