CC)—The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners Tuesday night approved  the transfer of a city incentive agreement from the current owners of the yet to be opened downtown hotel to a new owner. The existing incentive agreement, first approved in 2017, could not be assigned to a third party without the city’s approval first.  Enid city commissioners on Tuesday voted 5-2 in favor of extending to the new owner-operator the same obligations and incentives, with no additions. Sale of the hotel has not yet taken place, and the developer will first finish construction on the hotel ideally by the end of the month, before the ownership transfer.

 

During their study session city commissioners heard an update on the construction of Enid’s new soccer complex. Mark Allen, with Enid Sports Association, the organization leading the project, said construction on the complex is now expected to be completed by September 2022. The city of Enid has provided $3 million for construction expenses, with the project budgeted for a total $9.5 million. Construction on the facility at Rupe and Garland began in 2017 with further backing from the Allen Family Foundation and the McLaughlin Family Foundation, each having donated $1.5 million, as well as other corporate and individual donors. Through a public-private partnership, the city of Enid will own the assets and facility and be responsible for utilities, while ESA will operate and maintain the facility such as treating the grass on six of the complex’s seven fields.
