County Leaders Schedule Public Hearings for Planned Macy's Plant

Posted: Updated:

Two public hearings were scheduled Monday evening for a proposed Tax Incentive Finance District that would accommodate a new Macy's distribution center.

Tulsa County leaders met during a regularly scheduled meeting and voted approve the public hearings set for Jan. 21 and Feb. 3. that were decided on by members of INCOG.

According to a report from the Owasso Reporter, the hearings provide the public a chance to express their views on the proposed district involving the new Macy's facility to be constructed in Owasso.

Minutes from Monday's meeting state that the first meeting will be held for general information and question purposes. The second one will "give interested persons" opportunity to express their views on the proposed district.
