Shocker Neighborhood development panel

Join the Wichita State Office of Strategic Engagement and Planning, W- Young Professionals and ICT UP for a community conversation 5:30-7 p.m. July 20 at McAdams Recreation Center. The event will include a panel lead by community leaders who will discuss and highlight a current development project in the city that sheds light on the importance of exercising civic duty, and how we as residents, students, faculty, staff and business owners can be more engaged with development processes in Wichita.
The panel:
1. Former Community Service Rep for District One: Kameelah Alexander
2. Commercial Real Estate: Justin Enlow
3. Community Rep: District One Advisory Board Chair: Tex Dozier
4. Neighborhood business owner: Kirby’s: Alex Thomas
5. Neighborhood resident: Tereza Zardoz
6. Wichita State Student Government Student Body President: Rija Khan
The panelists will share their thoughts and experiences on being civically engaged and discuss their visions for future development. The development project we will highlight is in the Shocker Neighborhood around 17th and Hillside Street, University Village.
If you are unable to attend the development panel, Wichita State is also asking for community input to use during the current development process of University Village via survey. This is a one-question survey that will then be shared with the private developers who will submit proposals to develop the west and south boundaries of the university.
