A Park City resident asked Sedgwick County commissioners this morning to consider banning homeowner associations from requiring certain type of grasses, such as fescue, that demand a lot of watering.
Tim Null said watering lawns uses a lot of the city and county’s water supply. He advocates that local government press for native grasses such as buffalo grass that require less watering.
Commissioner Kelly Parks said he has pushed for the county to plant native grasses at its buildings such as the National Center for Aviation Training.
The board did not take any action today. Commissioner Karl Peterjohn suggested Null continue to work with local cities, which Peterjohn said have more home rule power.
