TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - North Topeka Arts District organizers want to make the area more visitor-friendly.
NOTO co-chair Anita Wolgast spoke at Thursday's Shawnee County Commission meeting. She asked them to consider purchasing a vacant lot at 828 S. Kansas Avenue. Wolgast says the lot would provide easier access to NOTO's main strip.
Wolgast says she envisions having a walkway with murals painted on the buildings that border the lot. She said it could be another way to attract people to the growing district.
Commissioners approved purchasing the lot. It will cost almost $20,000 from the county's general fund.
