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!
You are invited to attend participate in a
and share your ideas about current conditions, future possibilities, and what
"Academy Arts" means to you.

From the City Administrator - September 2018:
The annual “State of the City” address was
presented during the September City Council
meeting. This address provides a general
status of city operations, growth and
development and projections for the next
year and beyond.
Clearly, it has been another positive and
exceptionally successful year for us. The
city continues to progress in a constructive
and controlled manner. Each day, hundreds of
workers arrive in our city to work, build
and contribute. During the past twelve
months, millions of outside dollars have
been invested to expend our city for growth
and development, to add new families, new
residents and new workers to Maize. We
remain “a shining star example for Sedgwick
County & the State” in terms of growth,
development and operational excellence.
This affirming progression did not just
happen “by chance”. The results illustrate
the continuing constructive and quality
productivity from employees, staff & the
Governing Body. Ongoing prior planning,
utilizing well-established and consistent
City Council policies, with the application
of comprehensive management and
organizational practices have been the keys
As grows the city so grows the demands for
service! This demand is being addressed by
positive, valuable employees working in a
stable environment to provide the quality
service you deserve.
Good things are happening in Maize!
Through the integration of its population into every aspect of quality education, civic improvements, community appearance, commerce and recreation, Maize shall preserve its small town atmosphere and become the best small city in Kansas.
