FORT RILEY, KS - The Flint Hills Regional Council has been awarded a grant in the amount of $10,000 for a regional marketing program called Flint Hills Communities to Call Home. This project will create a website and printable materials about living options in the region. There are 26 communities within Clay, Geary, Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley and Wabaunsee counties who are participating in the program.
Individuals who are considering moving to the Flint Hills will be directed to the website or provided printed materials about the diverse communities throughout our region. The information provided will include median home prices, drive time to major employment centers and local amenities. Fort Riley, Kansas State University, regional Chambers of Commerce and local businesses in the region can direct new residents and employees to the website.
The Flint Hills Regional Council is a voluntary service association of local Kansas governments from Clay, Chase, Dickinson, Geary, Lyon, Morris, Riley, Pottawatomie, and Wabaunsee counties and/or their respective municipalities and unincorporated areas. These local Flint Hills governments have formed the Flint Hills Regional Council to provide services of mutual benefit to the region that are best gained from cooperation and partnership. Minnesota Housing Partnership is an organization devoted to collaborative approaches to regional community development.
