WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – City of Wichita leaders voted to spend more than $200,000 to continue plans to redevelop L W Clapp Golf Course located at Harry and Oliver.
By a vote of 7-0, the board approved a contract with a Kansas City-based design firm.
The assigned company worked on a similar project in Kansas City, turning a closed golf course into a multi-use green space.
City councilmember James Clendenin, who represents southeast Wichita, says there has been excitement building in that area for something new and vibrant.
“Now investing in another asset for the community, something new and exciting that everybody can be involved with things to do outside, things for people to have an amazing quality of life, that we are really truly seeking down in southeast Wichita.”
The company also designed the Wichita Art Museum garden and Wichita State University’s Braeburn Square.
