for ODOT Matching Grant To Expand Vision 2025 Funds
To Inform Inhofe, Sullivan, Brogdon
city official and interested citizens met Tuesday for a brief lunchtime meeting
to help boost Collinsville's interest in Main Street enhancements. State Senator
Randy Brogdon and representatives for U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe and Congressman
John Sullivan attended. The main objective for the session was to inform these
elected officials of Collinsville's grant application to the Oklahoma Department
of Transportation (ODOT) for matching funds to enhance two blocks of Main Street.
Collinsville is putting up $191,559 in hopes of receiving an additional $407,061
from ODOT. The initial funds are from Collinville's "beautification"
funds from Vision 2025. City leaders stressed the positive potential economical
impact this project would have on Collinsville's future. Collinsville's grant
application will be competing for funds with Tulsa, Bixby, Claremore, Glenpool,
Jenks, Sand Springs, Sapulpa, Tulsa County, Creek County as well as other areas
of the state. Many of the competing projects are for trails.
drawing below was discussed as an example of the many steps Collinsville is
taking to enhance the community (even though it is not a part of the grant application
above). The City Hall restoration and new Fire/EMS building are already funded
by direct Vision 2025 funds. The west end of that same block is also shown with
an example of a concept being discussed to remove the old filling station building
and create a pocket park with parking that could be available for city, church,
library and funeral use.
former doorways in the old city hall building were bricked in Tuesday as interior
and masonary work continues to match the new floorplan.
