From the City Administrator - April 2019:
As a longtime advocate for Special
Olympics and the founder of the Law Enforcement Torch Run
for Special Olympics, I recently had the honor and privilege
of participating in the opening ceremony of the 2019 World
Games in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Over 7,500
athletes from 180 countries participated, with 100 police
officers from 24 countries carrying the “Final Leg Torch”
and handing it off as the athletes opened the games.
During the games, the athletes were referred to as “People
of Determination!” A fitting tribute for individuals with
“Intellectual Disabilities” who inspire the world by
demonstrating their skills, perseverance, and contagious
joy. The athletes and their families are living models of
unity, inclusion and fellowship; all brought together on the
Determination has been defined as a
positive emotional feeling that involves persevering towards
a difficult goal in spite of obstacles. That determination
occurs prior to goal attainment and serves to motivate
behavior that will help achieve one’s goal. While its always
been my intent to support and inspire the Special Olympic
Athlete and their family, what I learned early on is I’m the
one who is continually inspired!
Again, this year the City of Maize
will be hosting the Kansas Special Olympics Summer games at
Maize South High School the first weekend in June. Come see
the inspiration in action!

Good things are happening in Maize!
Based on the
current economy, it is anticipated that
growth and development will continue to
trend upward in 2019. Together with city
development policies along with respected
builders and developers, Maize should remain
a leading example for positive, quality
growth throughout the state.
Review of the proposed master sidewalk/walkability/bike plan proposal will be conducted this spring. The plan will make recommendations to prioritize a strategic implementation schedule based on safety and funding. Some cash has been set aside to assist with the beginning construction.
Sidewalks for safety and convenience is an ongoing
concern. A grant-funded study to determine a master
city-wide pedestrian and bike plan is due to be released
early this year. The plan will prioritize projects for
strategic implementation. Some funding has been set aside to
assist with construction.
Maize Industrial Park (53rd & 119th)
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!
You are invited to attend participate in a
and share your ideas about current conditions, future possibilities, and what
