Parsons asking business & industry for input on corridor study

Updated:

POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE CITY OF PARSONS

PARSONS, KS — Are you a retail business or industry owner with property along 16th Street in Parsons? If so, we want your input!

The City of Parsons is seeking comments and suggestions as it plans the future of highway access through the US 59/16th Street. As part of a program through the Kansas Department of Transportation, Parsons city leaders have engaged with Affinis Corporation to help complete the official study.

According to KDOT’s website, this Access Management Plan will serve as a framework for potential highway enhancement, identification and preservation of rights-of-way that may be necessary to accommodate highway access for future development in the City of Parsons.

“Public input is a very important part of this long-term planning process,” said Kari West, City of Parsons Public Information Officer. “That is why we have scheduled three different public hearings focused on businesses and industries in town. The general public comment hearings will be held later in the process, once the ideas are developed. We want to create a corridor management plan that is useful for many years to come.”

The Business & Industry Hearing sessions will be held on February 24. There will be three different sessions. The meetings will be held in the City Commission Room in the Parsons Municipal Building, located at 112 South 17th Street.

The first meeting is for those businesses/industries located north of Main Street:

  • 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

There will be a general input session for business and industry related organizations (including real estate agents, members of economic development groups, etc.), and for those businesses not directly located along the corridor:

  • Noon – 1:30 p.m.

The final session of the day will be for those businesses/industries located south of Main Street:

  • 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

During the open meetings, representatives will be available to listen to your ideas, questions or concerns. It is preferred that you attend the time designated for your location, but if this does not fit your schedule, please feel free to attend one of the other sessions.

“This is one of the first steps to developing the plan,” West said. “General public hearings will be announced in March and will allow for more public input.”

If you have questions about the Parsons Access Corridor Management Study, you can always call the City of Parsons at 620-421-7030.
