Nomar finally becoming a reality

After multiple studies and years of unfulfilled promises, the redevelopment of 21st Street in north Wichita is finally becoming a reality. On Tuesday the Wichita City Council unanimously approved the construction of the Nomar International Marketplace at 21st and Market. The city also will widen 21st Street and add some decorative landscaping. City Council member Janet Miller correctly credited the persistence of community leaders in north Wichita and former council member Sharon Fearey for not giving up on the project.
