Douglas Avenue Design
Be Apart of the Momentum
The City of Wichita, the Wichita Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Wichita Downtown Development Corporation along with consultant Design Workshop presented the initial streetscape concepts for Douglas Avenue. This project - a detailed design plan, addresses a range of transit and transportation options for the corridor. A Project Downtown initiative, this plan provides a road map for the streetscape design of Douglas Avenue that reflects the community's vision for Downtown Wichita.
On July 27, 2011 a public open house and presentation was held in the Mary Jane Teall Theater at Century II. Design Workshop presented (9) initial design concepts for consideration and the public was given the opportunity to provide interactive feedback through electronic keypad polling.
On August 31, 2011 a second open house and presentation was held at the newly renovated Drury Plaza Hotel Broadview offering the public the opportunity to provide feedback on the direction of the draft design and also give input through additional keypad polling questions. You can review the results of first keypad polling session here.
On October 27, 2011 the final open house and public presentation was held at the Bank of America Building. The public was given an opportunity to see the near-final plan and recommendations by Design Workshop and was again able to provide feedback via keypad polling. The plan and recommendations were presented to City staff and advisory boards and was finally presented to the City Council on Dec. 10th for endorsement.
