Think Tomorrow Today

Local jurisdictions in South-Central Kansas no longer compete just against each other for jobs and economic development. We are competing against others nationally and globally. To be economically competitive in a world marketplace, we must work together to identify a collective vision for our future and design a toolbox of strategies to achieve it.

To that end, we are embarking on a two-year process to develop a plan for prosperity for South Central Kansas that encompasses Butler, Harvey, Reno, Sedgwick and Sumner counties.

The effort will focus on six key areas. They are:

  • Workforce and Business Development;
  • Built Environment;
  • Transportation;
  • Water;
  • Natural Resources; and
  • Healthy Community Design.

The Plan

This plan will simply build on all that has been accomplished in our region, respecting it, not replacing it. Further, the process will consider each community's unique needs, priorities and aspirations, ultimately developing a menu of voluntary, cooperative strategies designed to advance the public's vision for their communities. In other words, the plan will not mandate any actions. Instead, it will provide a blueprint for how we achieve the vision we define for ourselves, functioning as a guide as we work together to accomplish our mutual goals. In so doing, we will:

  • Use limited public funds more efficiently;
  • Connect people with quality jobs through coordinated workforce development;
  • Align regional housing, transportation, and infrastructure investments;
  • Protect important resources such as water, air and farmlandworking land;
  • Build safe, healthy and attractive neighborhoods; and,
  • Create lasting value for our local communities and economies.
