Wichita approves Cadillac Lake land donation for wetlands park

The Wichita Eagle

A land donation agreement expected to pave the way for a new urban wetlands park on the city’s west side won unanimous approval from the Wichita City Council on Tuesday.

The council voted 7-0 to initiate a public/private agreement with Slawson Cos. for land in the Cadillac Lake area in northwest Wichita. As part of a bonding resolution, the council agreed that the city would pay not more than 24 percent of needed water drainage improvement costs – estimated to be about $193,000 – while Slawson is expected to pay the remaining 76 percent of project costs.
