Good things are
still happening in Maize!
This past year our city witnessed
continuing development in several areas.
Housing, commercial and industrial expansion
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
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!
