Project Overview

A kickoff meeting was held on March 8th, 2023 to present the existing conditions of the neighborhood and allow residents to voice their thoughts and concerns regarding the neighborhood. The Historic Holliday Park DREAMS I Planning Committee, comprised of neighborhood volunteers, met ten times between March and November. These meeting covered issues related to land use, zoning, circulation, parks, and infrastructure. Along with these topics, the DREAMS I Planning Committee helped to develop goals and guiding principles, target areas, and develop infrastructure projects. 
A summary of the final plan was presented to the community at the final neighborhood-wide meeting on November 29th, 2023. A work session was held with the City of Topeka Planning commission on September 17th to provide an introduction and updated to the process.
March 10th Update: Both neighborhood kick-off meeting was held on March 8th. Roughly 30 members of the community showed up. A follow up meeting will be held within the next few weeks to continue the discussion regarding the replacement of brick sidewalks within the neighborhood.

CPA23/01 by the City of Topeka amending the text and map of the City of Topeka’s Comprehensive Plan updating the Historic Holliday Park Neighborhood Plan. The area affected by the amendment is bounded by SW 10th Ave to the north, SW Topeka Blvd to the east, SW 13th St to the south and SW Clay St to the west.

The Historic Holliday Park Neighborhood Improvement Association applied for and was awarded the 2023 DREAMS I by the City of Topeka. DREAMS I is a city program that provides a neighborhood plan, up to $1.5 million dollars in infrastructure money to the neighborhood, and $330,000 in housing rehabilitation dollars through Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds provided by Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Your involvement in this process will allow your voice to be heard when making decisions on how this money can be spent. Through DREAMS I, the Historic Holliday Park will receive an update to their neighborhood plan that will outline how that money will be spent.
