WICHITA, Kan. - The next step in determining the future of conventions and the performing arts in Wichita comes Monday evening. A public hearing is planned about what to do with one of the city's best-known buildings.
An architectural team from Kansas City will hold a public meeting about Wichita's options. This follows a study for the Convention and Visitors Bureau last year which suggested it might be time to replace Century II with something bigger and better.
The study last year offered three options. Century II could be kept as it is. A new convention center could be built, with century II being renovated. Or a new convention center could replace century II completely.
Planning and design options should be offered at the public meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in Century II Meeting Room 101.
