Word cloud. As entertainment and shopping. Farmers market Grocery store community center cofffee shop transportation public transit educational system activities for kids during summer additional resturants community center libary more entertaiment shade from sun Keep all pools open learning how to swim More money for community Keep bridge open Keep Dunbar threaten open Change pattern of streets Polish streets More community events Remove Power polls More parking Continue places for kids Better education Access to education Better education I would like to see this area be developed to promote community events and provide structures to accommodate crowds for presentations, performance art, plays, etc.. Ideally in support of these events would be small businesses that are lead by students to test out their entrepreneur skills (IE: food stalls, cafes, mini restaurants, lounges, etc). The primary goal of these structures should be to allow for different types of businesses to grow and change as students graduate and new students come in to implement different business ideas. That’s a good question! I’m honestly not 100% sure. Maybe a small local-style shopping center with an opportunity for food and entertainment options. Grocery Store A community center that has things geared towards college students I’d like to see an urban park so the kids can play soccer,basketball & other activities. If you add a dog park then this would also Benefit the neighborhood families greatly. Shopping is not ideal but a grocery store on the property is great. The neighborhood lacks affordable/ accessible access to food. I’d like to see a focus on creating community so a small outdoor theater would also help bring music to local families aswell. Something for the family, go carts, laser tag, bowling. Maybe grocery store, Parking Water park A community center where people can also drop off their recycling and at the center people up cycle those products A coffee shop/art gallery in one Karaoke cafe Restaurants, grocery store, activities for kids, free workout studios, 13th St needs work More benches Free parking, more sculptures Multicultural market More public events Grocery store opportunities, small business opportunities Mental therapy institution Affordable housing Free clinics shaded seating areas hands on events Whole Foods waterpark waterpark ice rink roller coaster grocery store grocery store dog park cafe/restaurant sports center better education outdoor fun stuff basketball more community events youth learning classes update recreational center indoor events more businesses large outdoor fans air condition fix streets make the area a business area improve roads and sidewalks better education unification/ no competition recreational center redo everything / houses more concrete pathway show what it represents restruants add more benches more affordable housing more public events keep save a lot open free parking more and better grocery stores better restaurants more seating kid activities hands on events free clinics more pop up shops for small businesses mental therapy water parks roller coaster dog park sport center cafe' grocery store ice novel Grocery store/pharmacy restaurants something that is accessible (physically and financially) for the exiting members of the Shocker neighborhoods. Supermarket, Movie theater, Recreational Park with swimming pool and splash pad, and trails for bikes, Clothing store, Museums, Pet store. fresh fruits and veggies at good prices - a grocery store an outdoor mall. I think giving space for students to develop products or services and letting them showcase their product for a semester would be great! It allows Wichita’s entrepreneurial spirit to be showcased by WSU entrepreneurial students and giving them applied learning opportunities. A competition could be held for the space or spaces. In the actual mall, I think having a place to eat, live, and play gives out of state and international students a hub just off campus. Staying and including locally-owned firms to Wichita and the surrounding areas would be first. Outdoor open green space with gardens and clean eating eateries and a produce/farmers mixed venue space. Family friendly places for older (teen) kids. Once they outgrow the kid activities, we need more for the 12-17 year old. We also need more social places for the 20-35 crowd. Outdoor exercicse, outdoor eating maybe even on sand around some water. Make a small water feature, surround it with sand and give Wichita a "beach hangout" with some family "game" activities and some young adult "volleyball" activities. shaded areas, walking paths, benches or seats, picnic areas w/tables and seating or w/o Automatic car wash, Arbys (drive thru) Pickleball Courts (The only ones are at chicken N pickle and they’re always super pack, would be a good community building opportunity) Football stadium Coffee shops and and non-fas food venues Restaurants, nail salon, market/grocery store A CVS, Walgreens, or Walmart type of store. Someplace close that one could go to get a last minute greeting card and gift, over-the-counter medicine or Band-Aids, toiletries, and someplace that has a good assortment of snacks and drinks entertainment and grocery stores Health food store - like Sprouts! we would like more chances to have places to walk to, and more public transit. Local stores would be nice. a beer hall with healthy food Grocery store, post office, Farmers market, dog park, smoothie shop, parking garage If developed in this area my family and I would love a theme park with a destination hotel. Let’s stop just being “in the middle.” Let’s bring tourism here instead of just being a blip in the road. I would like to see a water park in our future as well. I think we should develop our downtown waterfront area in a similar fashion to Oklahoma City. They have a great river front district. They have entertainment (not just food) for both family and adults of different ages. Access to groceries and fresh produce + prefer buildings with green certification and development using green energy, low carbon and other sustainability features.
