WAMPO Call for Projects
Planning Walkable Places
May 15, 2017 – June 15, 2017

The Planning Walkable Places program is a non-construction grant program using funds that are "left over" from planned construction projects. Formally approved in May 2017, the program focuses on community goals that can be achieved through increasing walkability.

These goals include, but are not limited to, improving health, safety, and connectivity; improving community vitality and 'sense of place'; enhancing tourism, attracting young talent, improving the mobility of seniors and children; increasing the enjoyment and safety of community events; and providing a distinctive place that promotes community identity and serves as a landmark.

The application period is currently open and will close on Thursday, June 15, 2017, with awards being done later this summer 2017.  To apply for a project, each authorized representative of a WAMPO member communities should familiarize themselves with the below Program, Visual Guide and submit a completed application, to the attention of Jason O'Brien at jaobrien@wichita.gov.

Regional Pathway System Plan (RPSP)

The Regional Pathway System Plan (RPSP) identifies primary east/west and north/south corridors that connect most of the communities in the WAMPO region. These regional corridors create a framework for biking facilities and help lay the foundation for identifying missing links. The regional corridors can be looked at as a backbone system that connects existing and future bicycle/pedestrian facilities.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Count

Click Here to Register!

Every year WAMPO coordinates an annual count of bicycle and pedestrian activity across 35 different sites in Park City, Goddard, Andover, Mulvane and Wichita to name a few.

The data collected during the count helps to estimate the number of people and locations people bicycle, walk and run. Once collected, the data is used to plan the location of future bicycle and pedestrian investments. In order to effectively gather this information we rely on a team of volunteers to spend a short period of time at each site counting bicyclists and pedestrians.


Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers are needed at several locations on the following dates:

Thursday, September 21, 2017
(5:00 - 7:00pm)

Saturday, September 23, 2017
(Noon - 2:00pm)

Know other people or groups who would like to participate? Please share our flyer!
