From the City Administrator - May 2021:
At this time, a year ago, we were attempting to find our way as individuals, families, and community through the unknown fog of the COVID pandemic. Anxieties abounded within each of us as we searched for safety, security, and confidence in the future. As individuals, families and community we were seeking stability and self-assurance, in an effort to confront our “fears and concerns”. While in search of a solution we all came together, found our way, made the required adjustments, adapted and became much stronger in the process. And now, as we begin emerging from this challenging ordeal, I believe, this new-found strength will become the positive force for the future. The sturdy bonds that have been established and developed will allow us to continue to support one another and assist others who may need a helping hand along the way.
Our future is bright and its thanks to each of you.
Good things are
still happening in Maize!
Our City is currently experiencing the largest housing expansion in history. With eleven active housing developments under construction and others pending it promises to be a record year. We also continue to work with Commercial and Industrial developers on plans for future expansion. Several miles of streets are presently undergoing upgrades and maintenance to keep pace with the influx of traffic. In addition, two new north school campuses and one new south school campus are under construction and will open this fall. The new Amphitheatre is scheduled to break ground this summer and the new Academy Art District improvements are scheduled for 2022.
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!
