November 24, 2011


— The Flint Hills Regional Council has received a federal grant to develop a plan for regional growth.

The council said in a news release Wednesday that it has received the $1.98 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.

The council says the grant will be used to create a sustainable development plan for the region, which encompasses 19 counties

The Flint Hills region was one of 29 regions and 27 communities across the country to receive funding through the $96 million HUD program, which was created to help communities and regions establish plans for manageable growth.

The Flint Hills Regional Council is a voluntary service association of regional governments.

They need to give the money back. We all know that Brownback wants the Flint Hills to be pristine. development would require electrical transmission lines. We cannot have anything dealing with electricity expanding there. It would be bad for tourism.

the State of Kansas did not apply for nor did it receive the grant. The Flint Hills Regional Council did.
