Commissioner Shafer joined the other commissioners after this photo was taken Wednesday afternoon as Stan Sallee briefed the city officials on his efforts to improve and expand economic development here.
Sallee provided status on efforts including improving the environment here for economic development by interfacing with ODOT for keeping our need for a four (or 5) lane Highway 20 out to Highway 75 to remain their plans, the need for improved entry/exit (signal lights?) at the Quick Trip (and other potential businesses) west of town near Hwy 75, and potential Highway 169 exit improvements.
Other topics Sallee mentioned:
* (un-named) partnership that might bring funding to existing merchants in town.
* partnerships with Tulsa and Owasso for multiple project (one example being trying to get in front of Verizion relocations (500-700 jobs coming nearby).
* Continue partnerships with Cherokee Nation
* Visit with Hille Foundation
* Collinsville package in fron of an unnamed corporation which their board is expected to review. Suggested executive session if commissioners wanted more specifc information.
* requested direction on city potential industrial park development
* ICSC National Convention May 22 (in Vagas) ... requested city direction on his attendance
* lost tractor supply opportunity to Skiatook
* Last apartments built in Collinsville in 1979 (Garden Apartments) ... time for more?
* Collinsville is (still) leading this region in new housing starts

Bud York suggested a city department of economic development to gather data and promote Collinsville.Pam Polk indicated INCOG woul likely soon be a source for interfacing with demographic information ($1000 fee).

ODOT Speed Study --
City Manager Pam Polk presented ODOT data indicating "average" traffic measured on Main Street is traveling above the posted 25 MPH limit and ODOT recommended the limit be raised to 35. The informal commission discussion indicated that might be feasible with the exception of the school crossing areas. Polk mention a portion of the grant for "Safe Routes To Schools" might provided a way to place signaling devices at both Main and Brodway crossings near the middle school.
