Welcome to the Official Site of the Wichita And Affiliated Tribes
Wichita Historical Center-TRO Vacated
The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes was issued a Temporary Restraining Order last week in regards to the Wichita History Center that is being constructed on highway 281. Below is a except from the order today vacating the temporary restraining order. -Terri Parton, President
"Based on the record before it, the court concludes that the Wichita Tribe fulfilled its consultation responsibilities under NHPA. Plaintiff did not meet its burden of showing a violation of the Act.
Having concluded that plaintiff failed to demonstrate it is likely to succeed on the merits of its claim that defendants violated the APA by their noncompliance with NEPA or NHPA, the court vacates the TRO previously entered and DENIES plaintiff's motion for TRO [Doc. #3].17
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 31st day of May, 2016."
Construction began again on the grasshouses on June 1, 2016. Photos of ongoing construction can be seen by following the link below.
