The Flint Hills Frontiers Regional Plan is a document that sets a vision for the future of the Flint Hills. A 3-year process reaching 19 county, 2 state, 3 nation, and countless other stakeholders, plus endless possibilities, the Frontiers project sets the course for regional cooperation and implementation. The Frontiers Regional Plan sets goals for 7 issue areas and develops a Strategic Doing Implementation strategy for moving the goals forward.
The Frontiers brought the Flint Hills region a newly designated Flint Hills Economic Development District, by drafting a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), a Workforce Alignment study that looks at the many forces at play in this dynamic region and the region's first Fair Housing Equity Assessment/Regional Analysis of Impediments (FHEA/RAI).
The planning team led by the Flint Hills Regional Council, with BNIM, of Kansas City, BioMimicry 3.8, of Montana, InNative, of California and LEAMgroup, of Illinois, worked with regional partners and area stakeholders to develop the Frontiers Regional Plan. The Plan will be under review by the Flint Hills Regional Council Board on Friday, June 19th. Please have a look and let us know what you think.
