City of Maize Updates

City Manager Nicd Gregory

From the City Manager - April 2024

Having now been in Maize for four months as City Manager, I continue to be excited to see new opportunities come to the city.  Growing up in west Wichita as a child, I was able to see firsthand the 80’s and 90’s expansions of west Wichita.  Maize at that time was a quiet country town.   My family would journey through Maize to get to K-96 on the way to the Kansas State Fair or to see family and friends in Hutchinson.  Having moved away from Wichita to pursue my career in communities in more rural parts of Kansas (Great Bend and McPherson), I lost touch with this area.  Still having family in west Wichita, I would constantly make the trek back, driving around Maize and not knowing the hidden treasure that existed and was growing in there.

It wasn’t until I learned that Richard LaMunyon was retiring as City Administrator that I thought too much about what was going on here.   When I started talking to some friends and colleagues living in the Wichita area, they said I should really check it out, there are big things happening in Maize!   Convinced to take a better look at a leadership role in Maize, I drove around and saw some amazing things happening.   A clear sign of the growth included some of the highest quality schools, frenetic activity of new and ongoing housing construction, breadcrumbs of businesses leading up to “Maize’s Doorstep”.    I saw Maize and I thought to myself what an amazing opportunity to come in and make a difference in a community that has clearly become a location of choice for families raising kids.    Seeing the improvements along Academy Avenue and the creation of the Academy Arts District, including the Clair Donnelly Amphitheater, the expansive growth of Maize USD 266 and seeing the constant construction of new houses at locations around the community, I said “Maize feels like home”.

After four months, I continue to be amazed by the things that are happening here.   With growth comes great challenges and even though we have challenges, there are opportunities to add many of the amenities to make Maize a complete community. I look forward to facing those challenges over the upcoming years.    We look to grow businesses and retail amenities, add recreational opportunities and continue to improve on necessary infrastructure to improve quality of life opportunities for our residents.

In my early discussions with our Mayor and City Council, we plan to embark on a new journey to develop a revised strategic plan for Maize.    We will weigh challenges, opportunities and best paths forward.  We seek to enhance an already great community to be a place that our residents continue to be proud of.   The City of Maize hopes to aggressively pursue unique business prospects, continue to build on a strong industrial base, work on pedestrian and vehicle connectivity with a focus on new walking/biking/jogging opportunities and improved traffic-carrying roadways.  In addition, we seek to enhance our capacity to provide sufficient water and sanitary sewer infrastructure to the expanding community.  In the upcoming year, we plan to get deep into that planning.

We value your opinion and want to hear from our business partners and our citizens.  Stay tuned for an upcoming Community Survey! I am personally excited to play a role in making Maize the continued place of choice for you and your families.

Exciting things are coming!
