2015 Spring Hill Delegation in Topeka
Good things happen when everyone works together.
On April 1st, our Chamber Board, City and Spring Hill Schools hosted a lunch for the Johnson County Legislation. The goal was to focus on our growing community and what these legislators could do to assist our efforts. Mayor Ellis, Superintendent Goering and Miami County Economic Developer Janet McRae spoke on the growing home sales, growing student population and job growth in Spring Hill in an effort to influence decision making that would assist us in our efforts. Changes in traffic patterns on HWY 169, especially the intersection at 199th Street were discussed. Safety is the first point, but the economic impact was stressed. Block grant funding for public schools and liquor sales were also discussed as influencing the economic health of Spring Hill.
April 16th Mayor Ellis addressed an audience of 80 business and Chamber members to share many of the projects that the city is working on. Spring Hill is the 5th fastest growing city in the region and the 3rd safest city in Kansas. Several things the city is working on include; problems solving the interchange at 199th Street and HWY 169 with KDOT, the Walk and Talk program and business outreach.
The local Spring Hill Pride is a part of the Kansas PRIDE Program which is a partnership of K-State Research and Extension, the Kansas Department of Commerce, and Kansas PRIDE, Inc.
Kansas PRIDE is dedicated to serving communities across the state to encourage and assist local government and volunteers in making their community a better place to live and work.
Through the PRIDE program, local communities identify what they would like to preserve, create, or improve for their future. Then, working with the resources of K-State Research & Extension and the Kansas Department of Commerce, community volunteers pull together to create their ideal community future.
One of the first projects we took on was the development of a community wide calendar. As a resident of Spring Hill we found it difficult at times to find out what was going on in the city from any one source, we typically had to do quite a bit of research to find out activities and we still missed some. We believe this is a great way to help bring the community closer and show how much PRIDE we have in Spring Hill.
