    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.

    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.

    Since last summer new establishments have opened on the strip in Stillwater.

    The Salty Dog Saloon, just off 5th and Washington was remodeled from a laundry. It does something different by giving tribute to Red Dirt Music by having portraits hanging on the walls of those who originated it. Background story: https://www.stwnewspress.com/news/lo...b632ad82b.html Some people who can go far back enough before the laundry can remember this place was the Mason Jar, a dive bar.


    Shooters, a just opened bar, formerly a Mexican eating place.


    Willie's north bar was closed and remodeled into Pickleman's. The windows can be fully raised.


    Coney Island, open since 1969, was sold. New owners extensively remodeled it and added a roof top bar.



    To end with a sidelight, it was a more fun than usual weekend in Stillwater with a thrilling old time one ring circus at the packed McKnight Center and for cat lovers, the Thundercats Cat Club cat show at the Expo Center. This cat took first place in ring 2.

    A vibrant vision for Stillwater: Citizen groups kick off grass-roots quality of life efforts .

    Every city wants to be vibrant, the kind of place where people want to live, work and play, but some are further along than others.

    Last week, a group of Stillwater residents invited Quint Studer, a businessman and community revitalization advocate, to come and teach them what other cities are doing to activate development and quality of life projects. It’s a “secret sauce” Studer developed while observing what other towns have done and putting those lessons into practice in Pensacola, Florida, his home city.

    Studer and his staff from the Studer Community Institute gathered with about 60 participants representing business; government; Stillwater’s major educational institutions like Oklahoma State University, Meridian Technology Center and Stillwater Public Schools; real estate developers; bankers; non-profit agencies; realtors; land owners; arts organizations; visitor recruitment and faith organizations for a workshop Thursday morning followed by a community meeting later that evening.

    Studer said Stillwater has a lot going for it, and is way ahead of many small to medium-sized cities because it has a university and a quality public education system. Most communities rate themselves low in education and feel they have to address that first, something that is no small task.

    Studer said one of the keys to a vibrant city is a strong downtown. Stillwater’s downtown has made strides in the past decade, but he still doesn’t think it’s where it needs to be. Different people seem to have different perspectives on how far downtown Stillwater has come.

    “People who have been here a long time and remember downtown in the '90s might say, ‘Yeah, it’s really vibrant,’” he said. “But younger people or people who travel more don’t necessarily see it the same way,”

    Studer said Stillwater has the elements but it’s a matter of sequencing. He emphasizes the importance of doing the right things in the right order when revitalizing a downtown.

    It starts with programming to draw people to the area, followed by retail and entertainment, then office space and finally, a variety of residential development.

    He recommends starting on one corner and making it great, then building out from there.

    Studer identified the intersection of 7th Avenue and Main Street as the area of downtown that is closest to being ready. He said it's going to be important to get a tenant who will offer entertainment in Russ Teubner’s building on the northwest corner because he doesn’t think the area generates enough foot traffic right now to support a boutique or some other type of retail.

    Programming and events are the first steps.

    “Every weekend, something needs to be happening downtown,” Studer said. “You need a full-time person who wakes up every day and thinks about it.”
