City of Maize Updates

City Administrator Richard LaMunyon

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.


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!

State partners with Maize for Pedestrian Safety on Maize Road

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!).

Maize in Motion 

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 lighting). Maize 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.

Academy Arts District Concept

Academy Arts District Master Plan

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!
