Have you ever wondered about the property taxes you pay in Maize and how the Mill Levy effects them? We have created a page to show you where the property taxes
you pay go and how changes to the Mill Levy effects them. While no
one likes paying taxes, property taxes are the primary
source of funding of government entities such as
the city, county, fire district, school district
and others. These funds are ultimately
reinvested back into
the community to provide infrastructure
improvements and the service you expect.

From the City Administrator - January 2023
Maize began 2022 by being recognized as the “fastest growing
city in Kansas” and throughout the year this title has been
maintained. The unprecedented development was predictable
and preparation for this historical and unprecedented growth
was in place. The city experienced another record year in
issuing 249 new housing unit permits. New businesses opened
their doors, school campuses expanded, the Amphitheater is
operational and the Academy street project is nearing
completion. The vision and planning for quality of life
amenities and safety is always the priority. A big thank you
to our Mayor and Council for their support and leadership. I
thank our city staff and employees for the exceptional
response to the tasks placed before them.
2023 CITY DEVELOPMENT
As we enter 2023, it’s projected the growth and development
will remain very strong. You may anticipate several new
housing developments, commercial activities and industrial
park expansions during the year. In addition, roadway and
sidewalk improvements will continue and the expansion for
utility enhancements will remain a priority.
Good things are
still happening in Maize!
In the fall of 2020, the City of Maize applied for a
highly competitive grant through KDOT’s Cost Share Program
for the purposes of installing a crosswalk with pedestrian
activated caution lights on Maize Road just north of Academy
Avenue. With letters of support from Commissioner Lacey
Cruise, Councilwoman Karen Fitzmier and USD 266; the project
was one of a few selected for funding from the entire State.
The KDOT Cost Share Program provides financial assistance
to local entities for transportation projects that improve
safety, support job retention and growth, improve access or
mobility, relieve congestion and help areas across the state
improve the transportation system. The City of Maize was
able to leverage taxpayer funds by matching local funds to
the $45,000 gift from the State.
This summer, Wildcat Construction constructed the
project. This project will compliment the 2022 Academy
Avenue project which will feature wide bicycle and
pedestrian paths on both sides of the street (stay tuned for
an interactive website!).
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!
