CALERA – Oklahoma Small Business Development Center, Durant Area Chamber of Commerce, REI Women’s Business Center, and Choctaw Nation Small Business Development Services have partnered to develop a plan of action to assist Calera area businesses that will be impacted by the U.S. Highway 69/75 Bryan County, Okla. Fastlane Road Construction project beginning in 2019. The group will present to the Calera City Council on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 3:30 p.m. in Calera City Hall, 110 W. Main St., to outline a proposed plan of action for the town.
The goal of the group is to provide awareness, guidance, and assistance and is based upon strategies utilized in other areas of the country to minimize the effects of construction on well prepared businesses and business communities.
The proactive approach will be outlined in the presentation and with support from the Town of Calera, would then serve as the framework for execution of the entire program through a collaborative effort with area resources. The project would last through the entire construction schedule.
For more information, call Durant Area Chamber of Commerce at (580) 924-0848.
