Sedgwick County commissioners this morning unanimously passed a plan for the area between Derby and Mulvane that is essentially a road map for growth and development through 2030.
Commissioners commended the city managers and city councils of Derby and Mulvane for working together and with planning staff.
“I think the fact that these cities came together and came together as well as they did is commendable,” commissioner Gwen Welshimer said.
Commissioner Dave Unruh said residents expect their leaders to work together.
“I think it’s a good plan. It’s a logical plan,” he said.
The plan covers the unincorporated areas located between the Derby and Mulvane city limits, the Arkansas River and 127th Street East.
Area officials said the plan was needed to:
–Document an agreed-upon future land use plan for the area.
–Coordinate delivery of future municipal and county services.
–Define anticipated future city boundaries for Derby and Mulvane.
