NOTO was created three years ago with the expressed purpose of revitalizing a part of town that never fully recovered from disastrous floods in the s. More than 5, area residents lent their voices to a strategic planning process called Heartland Visioning, now in its third year. Heartland Visioning is marketing NOTO business district studio and retail spaces at affordable prices as part of the redevelopment project. The NOTO district is contained within a three-block area that has been recently updated with new streetlights and planters.
Nearby are the beautifully restored Great Overland Station Museum, a planned riverfront park, and older homes that showcase various architectural styles, including Queen Anne, Folk Victorian and Gothic Revival. He was impressed with the energy of the volunteer group driving the NOTO resurgence.
Landesman said the project is unique in that it truly is a grassroots movement. He said most arts projects begin at the top with a foundation or government agency. In North Topeka, the project has grown quickly from the bottom and without government funding. That, Landesman told the Topeka Capital-Journal, is what will make it sustainable and an excellent model for other communities.
