East Manhattan Gateway Plan

The City of Manhattan is conducting a comprehensive study of the Green Valley area as an update to the 2015 Manhattan Urban Area Comprehensive Plan.

The study area consists of the Green Valley area of Blue Township roughly from the McCall Rd area east to Hopkins Creek Rd and north to Mt Zion Rd. You can access more information at the City's website or check this page for more updates.


The City of Manhattan and Pottawatomie County are currently looking for individuals to join the Community Advisory Committee for the East Manhattan Gateway plan. Both entities are looking for individuals who live and/or work in the Green Valley area who can provide a diverse mixture of backgrounds and experiences to help inform the plan as it is developed. 

Interested individuals can find out more information and apply to join the committee using the links below.
