The Kansas Team for the Center has been actively working on various initiatives aimed at promoting sustainable infrastructure and fostering economic growth across the state. Over the past month, the team has achieved significant milestones – and worked hard to introduce ourselves across the state.
One notable accomplishment is the publication of a case study that focuses on the positive impact of wind projects in Kingman County. The study highlights how these projects have brought substantial economic benefits, job creation, and enhanced infrastructure to the county. It outlines the collaborative efforts between local communities, businesses, and government entities to harness wind energy as a renewable resource. The study serves as a valuable resource for other counties and regions interested in exploring similar projects, providing a blueprint for successful implementation.
Additionally, the Kansas Team has been working diligently to review ordinances in multiple counties. These reviews aim to identify opportunities for streamlining processes, removing barriers, and bringing balance to their ordinances that considers community concerns and a desire for renewable energy development. By engaging with local stakeholders and conducting thorough assessments, the team has been able to provide recommendations to improve renewable energy planning and zoning ordinances in these areas.
As the Kansas Team for the Center of Infrastructure and Economic Development continues its efforts, it remains dedicated to fostering sustainable infrastructure, economic prosperity, and collaboration within Kansas communities. Through ongoing research, engagement, and strategic partnerships, the team aims to make a positive and lasting impact on the state’s infrastructure and economic landscape.
