Large mural being painted on a grain elevator in north Wichita - would love to see something like this on either side of the elevator on the NE corner of Rainbow and SW Blvd.

Looks like they are going to fill the river up with water too.

The river in Wichita is usually pretty full downtown thanks to a dam downstream...

Renderings of the new ballpark: https://www.kansas.com/news/politics-go ... 30425.html

Lots of people seemed to react with "if we're spending this much money on a ballpark, we need something special"... not realizing that they're really trying to pull this off on a 13-month schedule from its current status as a completely level dirt lot.

Wichita has never completed any project on schedule. It won't happen.

Based on what examples? Intrust Bank Arena and the new central library didn't suffer any delays.

Every road project they've started since the 80's. This project includes quite a bit of roadwork. They also broke ground while admitting that they haven't picked a final design for the stadium and haven't put out any bids for construction.
