11/1/2018 - City of Salina to Host Public Meeting on Smoky Hill River Renewal Project

The City, with the help of HDR, has been working to refine design elements presented in the Smoky Hill River Renewal Master Plan that was adopted in 2010. The planning process of this effort is concluding, and the project team is preparing to move into the final design stage of the first phase of construction for the project.

As part of this process, the City is hosting a public meeting to provide an update on design concepts, funding, and construction phasing, as well as gather feedback on proposed improvements:

Thursday, November 15, 2018
5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Open House
5:30 p.m. Presentation

Tony's Pizza Event Center
800 The Midway
Salina, Kansas 67401

Attendees may come and go at any time to view exhibits, speak with project representatives, and provide feedback on proposed designs. A formal presentation, lasting approximately 30 minutes, will begin at 5:30 p.m. The formal presentation will be broadcast on Facebook Live on the City of Salina's Facebook page.

Public input has been continuously incorporated into the refined master plan throughout the planning process and the public is once again being asked to provide input during the upcoming public meeting. Feedback is most useful now before the project moves into the construction stage.

Specific questions regarding the project should be directed to Martha Tasker, City of Salina Utilities Director, at or (785) 309-5725. For further information about the project, visit
