From the City Administrator - July 2021:
“Normality” is often defined as the condition of “being
normal; the state of being usual, typical, expected” or
perhaps stated; "let's try to get some normality back in our
lives". With the pandemic restrictions and constraints being
rescinded we find our-way-of-life being extended. Individual
freedom of movement, family time, fellowship and community
activities are returning with a stronger foundation of
solidarity and cooperativeness. As Americans and as a
community, we are stronger and prepared to put “normality”
back into our daily lives. This past year has been “unusual”
and on behalf of the City Council and City’s employee team,
we thank each of you for your support, cooperation and
2022 Budget Time
As with all Kansas municipalities, your Maize City Council
must develop, approve and submit the 2022 city budget in
August. By utilizing City Council policies & guidelines,
city staff is preparing a proposed 2022 budget for Council
Again, this year, as in the past and by City Council
mandate, NO increase in the city tax mill levy will be
considered. Revenues and expenditures are processing as
predicted. Advanced proper planning and budget management
assures this pattern will continue throughout the year. The
demands for city services have never been greater. A secure
and stable budget provides both the financial and
operational strength required to meet these ever-increasing
Good things are
still happening in Maize!
Growth and development continue at a
record and historic tempo. As a city we are
fortunate to have a “visionary” City Council
that has supported the need for proper
infrastructure, equipment and quality
employees in order to keep pace. Over 1400
new housing units are planned and
construction is ongoing. Commercial
development is ever increasing and an
expansion at the Industrial Park is
anticipated. Maize has established the
foundation required to remain progressive
and a leader in Economic Development
throughout the State..
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.
Visit the following links to learn more about Maize in Motion
and to provide your opinions on what you would like in a
city-wide pedestrian and bicycle network.
The City of Maize is developing 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!
