From the City Administrator - January 2022:
As we begin the new year of 2022, it’s certainly appropriate
we take a moment to once again provide a big “THANK YOU” to
Mayor Donna! Donna has stepped down from the Council after
24 years as a member. The City, our residents and the Maize
employee family will miss her. Her leadership and fellowship
have provided us all the desire to want to draw closer as
individuals and as a community. Also, Congratulations to our
“new” Mayor, Pat Stivers. Pat, a long time Maize resident,
past Council President and former member of the Planning
Commission is primed to be our new “Maize Ambassador”.
Additionally, our City Council is reaffirmed with the
re-election of Jennifer Herrington and our newest elected
member Jeff Hohnbaum. The future of the city is in good
hands as we move into 2022.
A big thank you is in order for Police Chief Matt Jensby as
he steps into the private sector. As a 28-year law
enforcement veteran, he served 25 of those years here in
Maize. Matt provided the leadership and guidance in bringing
a small part-time police department to a state of the art
fulltime, 24/7 operation. He is a solid leader, well
respected by his peers and a true professional. I’m blessed
and honored to call him my friend and thank him for his
service. He will be devoting himself to the expansion of his
personal business that he began several years ago, and to
his beautiful family..
Good things are
still happening in Maize!
As 2022 unfolds before us, we look back at 12-months of
historical and unprecedented growth and development for our
City. We welcome new residents, new businesses and
additional employment opportunities for all. It appears the
new year will provide more of the same. A big thank you to
our Governing Body for their support and leadership. And of
course, I thank our city staff and employees for the
exceptional response to the challenges placed before them.
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!
