Plaza District Planners Prepare Meeting on Street Improvements

Article excerpt

Planners developing a streetscape design for Oklahoma City's Plaza District plan to hold a public meeting Sept. 5 to discuss the project.

The street improvements are planned for an area along NW 16th Street between Classen Boulevard and Pennsylvania Avenue.

In attendance at the meeting will be representatives of the Oklahoma City's public works department, Plaza District Association leadership and the city's planning department.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 5 at Van der Grinten Hall in St. Francis of Assisi Church, 1901 NW 18th St.

Part of a broader effort by the Plaza District Main Street Program to revitalize the once-thriving commercial district of the 1940s and 1950s, Plaza District supporters are hoping the street improvements will lead to business development along NW 16th Street.

The east region will include offices in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Greenville, S.C., and Nashville.

Rooney said the reorganization fits with Manhattan's resources and geographic relationships in each area.

As a result of the reorganization, Leonard Rejcek and Ted Hudgins, both of Manhattan, have been named as president over the southwest and east regions, respectively. Rejcek served as the president of the Houston division. Hudgins joined Manhattan in 2001 as president of The Flagler Co., an Atlanta construction company acquired by Manhattan in 2001.
