The plan, entitled “Downtown Muskogee: A Landscape of Hope,” is the product of nearly a year’s worth of research. It was a collaborative effort by the Institute for Quality Communities, OU College of Architecture, OU-Tulsa Urban Design Studio, the city and various stakeholders.

The programs include 10 unannounced projects that involve 12 downtown buildings. Those projects, if they come to fruition, would represent private investments totaling $6 million. The city accepted $1.9 million from the community foundation, much of which is earmarked for the downtown grant program.  The plan was approved  unanimously Monday July 26, 2017 at the city’s public hearing.
