I believe in the last couple of years they have had a member named IFC president.

    That's great. Shows what a few bad apples can do to an organization.

    It is proposed as pictured to expand the Stillwater Regional Airport's terminal to accommodate commercial air service and increased capacity demands. The primary benefit will be to provide much-needed space for the commercial air service. Additionally, the current terminal is not designed for commercial air service and is a 1950s structure. This project will add specially designed commercial airline service space as well as remodel the existing terminal.

    This project will be funded with 90% FAA AIP Grant funds and 10% with local and state funds not yet secured. Budget expected: $12 million. Anticipated completion date: 2026.

    The proposed Warren Theatre in downtown Stillwater is held up in court and still depends on land transactions and millions in TIF dollars.

    El Vaquero is up for sale in Stillwater for $4 million, 14,451 sq. ft. as a result of the recent raid. I love the impressive artwork inside, surely in part reflective of the high price. Some of the panoramas are three dimensional. Many Stillwater people love Ted's and are hoping Ted's will be the buyer.

    Palomino's recently reopened and not for sale.

    These are the two places that were raided by the Fed's recently right?

    Do we know when the dirt would move? I know the American flights are doing really well.

    I don't think so. I think Sen. Inhofe once again needs to get on the ball and come up with grant money. It's probably needed to secure flights elsewhere, such as Chicago. North central Oklahoma needs it without further delay.

    The Stillwater City Council signed off on a plan to re-purpose the Boomer Lake Station into a complex with a restaurant, bar, residential units and office space. The design includes a rooftop deck that takes advantage of the view of Boomer Lake. https://www.stwnewspress.com/news/lo...cbf283d18.html



    An idea of what the rooftop view will be like:

    True, a lot of talk, but hopefully the reality of OSU's $70,000,000 McKnight Center for the Performing Arts will be seen as making Stillwater a more desirable place to live and draw employers offering higher paying jobs. Adding another destination, such as Chicago, for passenger airline traffic in the future won't hurt.

    The lack of good paying jobs has long been a sad, economic problem for Stillwater.
    Estimated median household income in 2016:
    Stillwater - $27,445
    Norman - $52,041
