Topeka and Shawnee County residents have a major hand in the future of their community. "Luke Planning" has started a process to take suggestions from the people to build a visioning plan for the area.
More than 500 people were on hand at the Ramada Inn at the introductory meeting Monday evening -- a great turnout.
Topeka Police Chief Ron Miller was impressed with the turnout, but urged people to continue to show an interest and give feedback.
Topeka Mayor Bill Bunten said any plan people come up with will likely require money -- and citizens will need to decide if they are willing to spend it.
The process takes several months, and a plan should be finished November 6.
