Community Description:

Why Topeka? You probably learned in elementary school that Topeka was the capital city of Kansas. But we’re so much more! In fact, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine named Topeka one of the top ten cities for the next decade in 2010. Topeka’s been recognized for affordable housing, a lively arts community, a healthy community, and a city where citizens believe their well-being ranks #30 in the nation. Take a look at the digital Topeka Relocation Guide:


There’s new energy and a new outlook in Topeka. The citizens have adopted a strategic plan for the community (see Heartland Visioning) and results are happening. Our young professionals are finding lots to do in formal and informal groups. Take a look at our new arts district, our new Kansas Children’s Discovery Center, new swimming pools and ball diamonds, new businesses and commerce parks and a plan to revitalize the downtown. Farmer’s markets are plentiful, robotics and an international baccalaureate are being introduced in the schools and citizens are taking an active role as volunteers all over the city.
