    They are currently working on the site. Seems like I read that they were getting oil, gas, or water lines moved so that construction could begin. There is some foundation work as well. Go to American Indian Cultural Center Website to view pictures and for more information.

    It seems like I read about two months ago that there was a funding issue. Apparently, some Federal monies earmarked for the project were now on hold and they were uncertain whether they could be recouped.

    Here's an update on where that stands in congress from NewsOK.com: article 3219493

    Here's another article about the upgrade. They are now asking for $45 million from the state.

    I certainly applaud their efforts, and know the Center will be a great addition to our local museum culture, but wonder with all of those successful casinos popping up on just about every other available parcel of land, if they couldn't ask for some casino profits to help fund this. Seems like it would be a great project to take on.

    There are several other threads on this topic. Work is progressing rapidly if you haven't been by lately, I encourage you to do so. There are some funding shortages as projected and previously mentioned.

    I am the most positive guy around but I've said from Day 1 that this project was way too ambiguous in every way: time lines, purpose, direction, and funding.

    Seems like they should have only started the phases where the money was certain, rather than digging a massive hole then going to the state and asking to be given $50 million.

    Unless something radical changes in the way this whole project has been handled, I don't see it ever approaching what has been promised.

    This same thing happened with the Cowboy Hall of Fame, although it's been mostly forgotten now. The building stood empty and unfinished for about six years before enough money was raised to complete it. But eventually it was completed.

    Personally, I am confident that this Center will come into place and will be one of Okc's crowning jewels. Yes, federal funding is presently an issue, but I'm confident that will be solved. If one drives by the area, it is evident that much "physical" progress has been and is being made.

    Same here Doug, I think this will come through in the end. If not, we can always count on you pitching in from your retirement fund!

    I thought and still think it is a great idea to put a indian cultural center on the oklahoma river, I just wish we would have funding for things that will educate us.

    I'll pitch in some as well. Perhaps they need a "pennies for the cultural center" drive of some such thing. That might shame someone in the state or federal government to help out.

    You asked for an update, here goes:

    Looks like Mayor Cornett is going to Washington D.C. to hear a Congressional hearing on the matter.

    I am very excited about this project. Still, there are so many projects going on in this city right now, that it is hard to decide which one to devote your enthusiasm toward.

    How is that for a change? How long ago was it that one project would be something to get excited about, let alone a city-wide transformation of such magnitude that newspapers from Canada have written articles about it?

    What a great time to be an OKC resident.

    I will be there (AICC) on the first day it is open.

    You mean the lottery and remington park didn't save us? (note: sarcasm switch is 'on')

    I know Flintco is the construction manager and site work is progressing. Anyone know a timeframe for the project?
