From the City Administrator - July 2020:
As Americans, we continue to find our way through the
COVID-19 pandemic. Revisiting the past three months, we
realize our normal activities are curtailed, our lifestyles
altered and our freedom of movement limited. The ability to
work or attend school has been abridged and a new “normal”
seems to be unfolding.
While unknown factors remain, the
“knowledge” we have gained continues to increase and is
providing the necessary individual confidence and
self-assurance to move on toward a bright and enthusiastic
future for each of us.

report that City Operations are functioning effectively and
proficiently. In order to comply with our health
official’s advice, certain safeguards are in place for the
health and well-being of all. All City facilities are
operational and we are here to serve and assist you.

Good things are

remained constant and it is anticipated this
will continue during the New Year. With the
strong national economy, combined with the
city development policies, Maize will remain
a leading example for constructive and
quality growth throughout the state.
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

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.

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

first step is to identify a cohesive
community vision for the future of the
district - whether
