Working collaboratively with community partners, the organization has an active role in shaping policy at the local, state and national levels to positively impact the momentum underway in Wichitas urban core. The organization works with public partners on projects within the district, providing market data or testimony in support of projects that meets the objectives set forth in Project Downtown.In addition, the organization promotes and educates on the importance that State and Federal Historic Tax Credit Programs have in downtown revitalization. These programs are critical tools in preserving our historic architecture and many adaptive reuse projects would not be financially viable without them. Recent examples of these tools at work include the conversion of the former Spaghetti Works warehouse into 41 unique residential units and the renovation of the historic Union Station terminal into a mixed-use destination. Five historic buildings are being restored to serve as the campus for the proposed Kansas Health Science CenterKansas College of Osteopathic Medicine.
