Project Downtown

The Master Plan for Wichita

A milestone we've worked together as a community to achieve. Project Downtown: The Master Plan for Wichita. The plan focuses on key areas of our downtown, illustrating the potential we have as a community to grow.  The plan has overwhelming support from the private and public sectors.  A blueprint for our future, it benefits the public and private sector when making decisions, being strategic with public sector investment so we, as a community, maximize private sector investment.

What's in a plan? 

Let’s take a quick look back. The success of 1989’s initial downtown development effort, sometimes called the RTKL plan, exceeded expectations. From there, a second series of downtown improvements, the River Corridor plan, took hold. After voters approved funding for a regional sports and entertainment arena, the Arena Neighborhood plan was designed to improve areas surrounding the arena site. Collectively, these three plans have built a strong foundation. Projects evolving from them continue to grow. With each new success, residents and visitors discover new ways to use and enjoy downtown Wichita.
