Lake Wichita Revitalization Committee


Welcome to the Lake Wichita Revitalization Committee web page! Here you will be able to find the latest and greatest information and developments with the newly appointed Lake Wichita Revitalization Committee

On May 7, 2013, the Wichita Falls City Council appointed the newly created Lake Wichita Study Committee (comprised of Wichita Falls and Lakeside City citizens, elected officials and city staff) and charged the committee with the task of developing goals and recommendations for recreation and non-recreation uses with consideration being given to, but not limited to:
  • Water usage,
  • Shoreline usage,
  • Public Safety,
  • Maintenance, and
  • Commercial development.
The name was changed to Lake Wichita Revitalization Committee (LWRC) by the Wichita Falls City Council Resolution 106-2014 on October 7, 2014. The reason was to coincide with the City Council extension of the LWRC term another 18 months, done by the same resolution, and to recognize a more active role by the LWRC to achieve improvements to Lake Wichita. The committee will work to develop an action plan that can ultimately be implemented to bring the vision to fruition!
