The Wichita City Council heard a report Tuesday on the ongoing Places for People plan.

It contains an urban infill strategy aimed at encouraging population and employment growth, along with residential and commercial development and reinvestment in the older, mature neighborhoods of the city.

The plan would use changes to zoning code, along with establishing a land bank, incentives and other funding strategies.

Council member Brandon Johnson, while supportive of the plan, voiced his concern about making sure all voices would be heard.

"Places for People I think can have a great benefit to especially the core. I just want to make sure we're inclusive of the people, and that neighborhoods have real representation, and that as we're going forward, folks still know what's coming," he said.

The next step is to engage the public, through information on the web, speaker series and social media.
