NOTO is exactly the kind of a project that will attract individuals to Topeka and Shawnee County by showcasing our artistic talent in a unique art district setting. We are excited about the enhanced quality of life amenities NOTO will bring to our community, and encourage your support.

Visit Topeka Inc. is extremely excited to support having an Arts District to offer to our visitors and citizens. Visiting an arts district or art museum continues to be one of the top activities when people visit a community. We at Visit Topeka are also excited to anticipate the growth of retail and restaurants that usually accompany this type of destination area. Topeka is a Capital Place for Arts!

It is with much enthusiasm that, on behalf of the North Topeka Business Alliance, I welcome the NOTO Arts District to North Topeka. Not only will the area become a destination for artists, but will be a great place for the community as a whole. As a life-long resident of North Topeka and a current business owner in the community, it is truly exciting to anticipate how the NOTO Arts District will transform Downtown North Topeka.

I am very enthused with the opportunity of establishing an Arts District in Historic North Topeka. This endeavor will not only be beneficial economically and culturally for North Topeka, but also for all of Topeka and neighboring communities. I believe the development of NOTO will prove to be a very positive advancement in an area that has the amenities to make it successful.
