Duncan hosts meeting to plan beautification projects

DUNCAN, OK (KSWO)-  Duncan residents took advantage of the chance on Thursday, to tell city officials what they think needs to be done to improve the overall look of the city.

The Duncan Enhancement Trust Authority is in the process of preparing a beautification plan for the city.

They've been holding town hall meetings to get citizen input.  Thursday, it was for Ward 1.

The city's Director of Community Development, Nate Schacht said he's heard ideas regarding landscaping the city's medians, as well as flood control and transportation. 

All of those will help develop a program that everyone can get behind.

"I can bury my nose into a book, and get the information, and kind of come up with the ideas that I think are beneficial to the community,” said Nate Schacht. “But you don't know what the true benefits are, or what the true desires are until you have meetings like this, and have the opportunity to hear what our citizens say they're concerned about, and what they would like to see happen."

Schacht said he hopes to have a rough draft ready to present to the public, as well as the city council and mayor, in about six weeks.

 Another town hall meeting for residents in Ward 4 is planned for next Thursday evening.
