Happy Anniverary Park City!

Posted on November 19, 2015 at 3:38 PM by Judy Ferguson

Park City was incorporated in 1980 after approval by the Sedgwick County Board of Commissioners on November 26, 1980. A special election was held on February 17, 1981 and a mayor and five council members were elected to form the first governing body of the new City. 

The building at 6125 North Hydraulic, which formerly served as the Water Improvement District Office was designated to be the City Building. This building was built in 1957 and 1958. The office for the Water Company, the City Clerk's Office, the Police Chief's Office and the Office of the Municipal Court Clerk were all housed there.

In 1989, a new city hall building was built and dedicated and now serves the needs of the community. This facility houses the Council/Municipal Court Chambers and all administrative offices of the City to include: Police Department, Municipal Court, City Clerk, Planning/Zoning/ Economic Development Department and Building Official. The Council Chambers is adorned with a stained glass replica of the City Seal created by Reverend Earl Marvin former Council member. 

Upon reaching a population of over 5,000 persons in 1994, the Governor of the State of Kansas proclaimed Park City a city of the second class on July 1, 1994. After unsuccessful attempts to retain its at-large system of government, Park City adopted the ward system as prescribed by State Statutes. With several interested candidates, both a primary and a general election were held to elect a new Governing Body, which took office on April 11, 1995.

In 1996, in an attempt to stimulate residential growth Park City platted the 48 lot Prairie Wind subdivision; since then an additional eight residential subdivisions have been approved with more than 900 new single family residences built as well as an apartment complex of more than 100 units.  

In the past decade, Park City has added a Senior Center which provides services to seniors in the area as well as a public library that serves as a learning and activity center to the citizens of Park City. By July, 2015 the City’s population had increased to 7,800 and City Council approved plans for a new City Hall with more room to provide services to the citizens.
