Projects

Here We Grow!

Currently the Redevelopment Commission has purchased approximately 51 acres of field located behind the Auction Barn.  The goal is to set up additional housing to support Topeka’s growing industry and housing shortage.  The board is accepting RFP’s from builders and will have public meetings to discuss exactly what will be done with the property.

The Commission is also working towards a new Waste Water Treatment Plant for Topeka.  Opening bids for this project will be December 5, 2019 at 1:30pm.  The plan is to begin construction in the summer of 2020.

Proud recipient of the 2019-2 Community Crossing Matching Grant Fund Program: $631,500
