From the City Administrator - February 2021:
As we close out 2020, I remember vividly entering the year
with our confidence level at an all-time high and our
optimism overflowing. We were on a roll, ready to go and
then, literally in less than two months, the national
economy shut down, our working environment dramatically
changed and our families faced a future that lacked
direction or stability. So, to say the circumstances were
unprecedented and unmatched seems a feeble description of
the actual events. This state-of-affairs provided unique and
unanswerable questions never before imagined or
Yet, through it all I have truly been amazed at our
community, our families and individual abilities to adapt,
shift, mobilize, and act. As for your Maize operations team,
my congratulations and appreciation to our Governing Body,
City Staff and Employees for the exceptional response to the
challenges placed before them. We leave 2020 stronger,
economically, organizationally and individually than when we
began. So, let us now turn our attention to 2021 as our City
continues to grow and develop at a pace never before
As with other companies and organizations, our City Council
and staff established economic safe guards to ensure
financial stability during the economic downturn. Street
project funding, equipment purchases and some economic
development projects were delayed. This funding was put
aside to ensure operational continuity. I’m pleased to
report all of that money remains, untouched, and is now
included in the 2021 budget for its original intent. We
ended 2020 well within budget parameters and projections
Good things are
still happening in Maize!
As we close out 2020 and enter the new
year all of the city operations are working
at full capacity. City activities and
demands on staff have never been more
intense. Currently we are involved with the
largest growth and development “boom” in our
city’s history. It’s literally unmatched and
extremely positive for our community.
Thankfully we have a visionary City Council,
a quality staff and the prior plans in place
to work through it. Growth has always been
anticipated, but never at the pace it’s
being presented to us today. The year of
2021 appears to be full of opportunities for
The City is developing a plan, Maize in Motion, to make
bicycling and walking in Maize easier and safer.
It will identify a future city-wide pedestrian and bicycle
network, along with other improvements (parking, signage, and
in Motion will also suggest linkages to
surrounding communities for regional connectivity. During the
effort, the City, WAMPO, and Core Team will reach out to
community members for feedback on issues, opportunities,
recommendations, and priorities.

and to provide your opinions on what you would like in a

Master Plan to create a safe and
walkable core in the community, a place
of identity that lets people know they
are in Maize. Academy Avenue and Park
Avenue were identified as destination
points for reimagining this
experience in Maize. The
first step is to identify a cohesive
community vision for the future of the
district - whether
you live, work, visit, or just travel
through Maize, we want to hear from you!
