Former Tiller Clinic Will Not Be Rezoned
The Metropolitan Area Planning Commission voted 6-4 Thursday against moving forward with a rezoning request regarding the former Tiller clinic in east Wichita.
Friday School Closures
Since most streets in the area are still covered in snow and ice, quite a few schools are closed Friday.
Services Still Slow Due To Storm
Transit buses are running Friday, though riders should expect some delays due to the snow. Riders can call 265-7221 for information on their routes.
The Wichita Police Department’s Emergency Accident Reporting Plan remains in effect. If you're involved in a non-injury accident that doesn't involve not involving drugs and alcohol, can be reported online at www.wichita.gov/cityoffices/police or at the nearest substation within 24 hours.
Residents are urged to avoid nonessential travel. Drivers should plan for increased travel times to their destinations, while emergency response is also taking longer due to the weather.
