Riverfront Legacy Maser Plan welcomes public at first open house
The first opportunity for the public to begin sharing their vision about the east bank of the Arkansas River will be an open house from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at The Wichita Boathouse, 515 S. Wichita. A brief presentation is scheduled for 5:15 p.m.
Members from the local coalition funding the plan, as well as a team from Populous, the global design firm selected to lead the planning process, as well as RCLCO Real Estate Advisors and Olin Design, will provide an overview of what to expect over the next few months as the comprehensive plan comes together and answer questions.
During the open house, people will be encouraged to share their vision for the area through interactive opportunities. A map of the area is available.
WHAT: First Riverfront Legacy Master Plan Open House
WHEN: 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, 2019
WHERE: The Wichita Boathouse, 515 S. Wichita
There will be additional open houses and engagement meetings and an opportunity for input through the website riverfrontlegacywichita.org. The goal of the Riverfront Legacy Master Plan process is to create an aspirational vision and master plan for the east bank of the Arkansas River, with a focus on an area south of Douglas Avenue to US-54/Kellogg and east to Main Street. The plan will consider all elements, including a performing arts center, convention center, Century II, the former library, connections to the west bank developments and a distinctive riverfront gathering space.
