    Just moved to Topeka, Ks. from Lincoln, Nebr. area and am shocked to see how downtown Topeka has so many empty buildings. I would love to be involved in re-vitalizing your town, to bring tourists, visitors, neighboring community dollars here. You definitely need exciting new businesses, something with Night life to bring all ages. When young & retired spend dollars, new growth will evolve, with eating establishments, shops, (clothing, bridal, spa’s, wineries, sporting goods, etc.) It takes groups of investors willing to invest in “their” community so they receive a return on their investments, but makes this an exciting town where people want to visit, stay & be a part of, instead of traveling to near by communities, like Lawrence or K.City.
    You need clubs, steak houses, fish/chicken, etc. with Comedy clubs, bars/dancing (country music, rock, etc.), skating rinks, movie theaters, bowling lanes, karoke clubs, etc. Lighting is very important on all the buildings, search beams when something is going on downtown to attract other areas to the downtown, but you have to have “something” here for people to want to come downtown for!

    We agree, Susie. We finally got the absentee owners of vacant properties out of the picture and have new investors ready to roll when the downtown redevelopment project is completed. Your offer to be involved is intriguing. Please contact us so we can discuss further. Edie Smith – edie@downtowntopekainc.com or 785.234.9336. I’m currently on vacation and return on the 18th.

    One suggestion would be to go back over 26 years and warn the city leaders not to allow Wanamaker Road to become the nightmare it was allowed to become, thus likely helping maintain the Downtown/White Lakes retail balance that existed for over two prior decades. I lived in Topeka over 20 years ago and the same problems dogged the city then: a downtown with huge potential and not enough residents to spread around to two retail centers let alone three, and then within a decade, just one: Wanamaker Road. It’s sad. Wanamaker is a mess, Macy’s closed there, downtown struggles but looks great in a lot of ways…I don’t say this as a criticism, I say this as a dilemma that ultimately will need to involve the city leadership creating growth and zoning policies that force development back inward (believe me the Topeka Public School District will thank you for it, too).
