WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita City Council discussed changes to the project plan around Riverfront Stadium at Tuesday’s meeting.
It deals with the consideration of a Project Plan Tax Increment Finance (TIF) district for the Delano & Stadium project. The TIF would fund site work, infrastructure and riverfront improvements, as well as public parking for a new hotel and apartments. Without the TIF, the developer will be unable to underwrite the development.
The council voted 6-0 to set a public hearing on Nov. 21, 2023, for the stadium hotel project plan. A public hearing is required before anything official happens.
The council also voted 6-0 to instruct the city manager to hold a public forum to discuss the details and receive public input before the project plan item comes up on Nov. 21.
