TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Heartland Visioning honored its volunteers with a celebration Monday night. The group says plenty of people see ways to make the Topeka community even better.

The event also gave new Executive Director John Hunter a chance to outline steps for the groups future. He said new priorities in transportation and riverfront development came out of more than 21 input sessions involving more than 400 people.

But, he did caution that working toward those goals is a process.

"Visioning takes time and a lot of people in this community of course wanted a quick response to change. Well, change doesn't happen that way," said Hunter.

He cited the North Topeka Arts District and the South Kansas Ave. improvements just underway as successes of the first round of Visioning.
