NS)--As we move into 2021 some exciting local changes and additions are expected. Enid residents can expect the new Hideaway Pizza, which will be located in The District the retail corridor at Cleveland and Garriott, to open its doors in June or July. The Enid location will be Hideaway Pizza’s 21st store, not including the original store in Stillwater. Hideaway Pizza will join Colton’s Steak House and Jiffy Trip convenience store in The District. Great Plains Bank also has announced plans to build in the area. This past summer, Enid city commissioners voted unanimously to adopt Enid Regional Development Authority’s recommendation to offer Apex Cinemas an incentive package for a movie theater tract in The District. The 42,000-square-foot theater would have eight to 10 digital movie screens, reclining seats and expanded food options. The package also includes an additional 20,000-square-foot trampoline park by Big Air.

 

Progress on the construction of Enid’s downtown hotel is in the final stages. The Best Western GL? has a “good chance” of opening in February, Enid City Manager Jerald Gilbert recently said based on what he’s seen on recent visits to the site on Maine between Grand and Independence. Officials said several other dining and retail additions are also expected in 2021.

VD)--Oklahoma health officials say they don't plan to follow all of the new federal guidelines for coronavirus vaccine distribution. In a recent statement Oklahoma Health Commissioner Dr. Lance Frye said Oklahoma plans to keep adults 65 and older in Phase Two of the state's vaccine distribution plan. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidelines over the weekend to prioritize those aged 75 and older and front-line essential workers in Phase Two of the rollout. But Frye says the state's advisory committee decided against prioritizing young and healthy workers over Oklahomans in the 65-74 age group.
