Ardmore city commissioners approved the final plat of the Ardmore Technology Park Addition during their regularly scheduled meeting Monday.

 

A plat is a diagram or map of a piece of land that shows the layout of the lots.  
The Ardmore Technology Park is a 47.23-acre parcel of land on the east side of Kings Road in far western Ardmore that is being developed by the Ardmore Development Authority in partnership with a private development company. The technology park, which is also known as the Colvert Technology Park Addition, is divided into 13 lots.

 

ADA Vice President Brien Thorstenberg said officials plan to recruit data-based management companies and technology-based industries as well as business support services, such as marketing and accounting firms, to the technology park. The park will include a 5,000-square-foot business incubator, with plans for expansion to 15,000 square feet. Business incubators are facilities designed to accelerate the development and success of start-up and existing companies.

 

In other business, the commissioners:

* Approved two supplemental agreements with Bucher, Willis & Ratliff Corporation for engineering and design services at the Ardmore Municipal Airport

 

* Approved accepting a $98,618 Community Development Block Grant for water distribution line improvements in the northeast part of town

 

* Approved buying two new police cars

 

* Approved advertising for bids for a project to improve the raw water line crossing the Washita River near the Ardmore Air Park
