Environmental group to meet Thursday

A local group called the Wichita Initiative to Renew the Environment is asking Wichitans to help decide what the top environmental concerns in the area are.

They will have a meeting from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday at the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita, 1010 N. Kansas.

The WIRE group has been working on a plan for about a year and will ask those attending the meeting to help prioritize concerns to develop a plan of action. For more information, visit
