Smoky Hill River Renewal Master Plan
In December 2009, the City Commission authorized Design Studios West and
Wright Water Engineers to complete the Phase 2 – Old River Channel Master Plan.
The purpose of the Master Plan is to identify appropriate planning, design and
preliminary engineering responses to specific opportunities associated with the
restoration and redevelopment of the Old River Channel of the Smoky Hill River.
Open community meetings were held to allow the public to offer their opinions
and ideas on how the Master Plan could best address the variety of public and
private improvements. The Master Plan identifies specific improvements, their
locations, general costs, potential funding sources, recommended phasing, and
operation and maintenance costs. A Technical Advisory Committee and Master Plan
Advisory Committee were created to provide input to the consultants. The
Technical Advisory Committee provided advisory oversight related to the
technical regulations and policies related to the Master Plan project area. The
Master Plan Advisory Committee provided advisory oversight to ensure
consistency in direction so that the community’s desires were followed.
In August 2010, the City Commission accepted the Smoky Hill River Renewal
Master Plan, dated August 2010, as drafted by Design Studios West, Inc. and
Wright Water Engineers, Inc.
