Thriving Urban Core
Downtown Wichita leads community efforts to create and build fun, temporary "pop-up" spaces where workers, residents and visitors can interact, connect and experience downtown in a new way, energizing the sidewalk and increasing pedestrian activity.
Placemaking projects contribute to the identity, character and culture of downtown by serving as an activator and catalyst for continued growth. The goal of these placemaking efforts are to spark a change in perception that is critical to the redevelopment potential for downtown. Enhancing vibrancy through placemaking and programming is one of the Downtown Wichita organization's key areas of focus.
