Fire station, office park on planning agenda

WICHITA — There are a couple of items of interest coming soon before the Metropolitan Area Planning Commission.

Sedgwick County is seeking a zoning change from single family residential to limited commercial for the southwest corner of University and Tyler.

There's an 8,115-square-foot decommissioned fire station there that the county hopes to sell.

Look for an auction through McCurdy Auction once the zoning change is approved.

One person connected to rezoning calls it an interesting piece of property in part because former fire stations are unique structures that are "solid as a rock."
