Chamber hears Unified Government update

March 18, 2010

A lot of buzz had been going on in Wyandotte County, largely focused on the Legends at Village West.

At Thursday's Basehor Chamber of Commerce meeting, Assistant Wyandotte County Administrator Gary Otiz gave members an update on all the action.

While Wyandotte has taken a hit with the troubled economy, several major projects are starting at Village West, most notably the Cerner Corporation and Wizards stadium establishing a home in the area, as well as a Hollywood casino.

Otiz said the Village West part of Wyandotte County currently attracted 10 million people each year, and he estimated the latest projects would bring in an additional 5 million visitors.
