Groundbreaking Ceremonies Planned for $3.2 Million Enid Conference Center

Groundbreaking Ceremonies Planned for $3.2 Million Enid Conference Center


Tipton, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Groundbreaking ceremonies will be held Monday in the 100 block of W. Main St. in Enid for the construction of a $3.2 million, 10,000 square foot conference center.

Demolition of older buildings on the site, which is located on the south side of Enid's downtown square, is nearly complete.

The project is slated for completion in December 1986.

Plans for the center include the restoration of two existing buildings plus new construction. When completed, the center will contain a two-story, 10,000 square foot exhibit hall which can be divided into three large meeting rooms.

Eight smaller meeting rooms will range in size from approximately 432 square feet to 908 square feet.

Facilities will also include administrative offices and a catering kitchen.

The conference center will provide meeting facilities for groups up to 600. The building may be used for dances, banquets and exhibits as well as for conferences and business meetings.

"The conference center is the end result of six years of planning by a great many people from both the public and private sectors of the community," said Enid Mayor Jim Underwood. "It is another positive step in a joint public/private plan to revitalize Enid's downtown."

Other phases of the plan include construction of a sports arena and conversion of the city's convention hall to a performing arts center. A streetscaping project for the downtown area is also underconsideration.

"Feasibility studies conducted early in the center's planning stages anticipated the center to be used by 15,000 to 20,000 persons annually," Underwood said.

"This will have an important economic impact on all of northwest Oklahoma, since the study also projects these people will bring up the $3 million into the area economy."

A search is currently underway for a management staff to maintain the center.

General contractor for the project is Henson Construction Co. of Enid. Architects for the project are Downing-Leach & Associates of Boulder, Colo. . .
