The City of Enid will be holding a special Mayor and Board of Commissioners meeting on Wednesday, January 25th at 12:30 pm. On the agenda is a public hearing about a Recreational Trails Program Grant through the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department.
If submitted the grant request would ask for help in extending the City’s Bike Trail system from Government Springs South to 5 Eighty Bike Park. After the hearing, the City Commission will vote on whether or not they will submit the application.
5 Eighty Bike Park was recently given that name after being named an official city park at a recent Commission meeting. Now the park is able to apply for state and federal funding.5 Eighty Bike Park was created by Enid residents most notably Chief of Police Bryan Skaggs, at the old city dump before it was designated an official city park.
