Those attending the Enid Regional Development Alliance’s quarterly luncheon Thursday learned a new transloading facility of wind turbine equipment plans to expand in the area.
Brent Kisling, ERDA executive director, said the Wyoming-based Transportation Partners and Logistics company picked Enid, with phase one constructing a 160-acre yard next to a new BNSF rail spur and future development of a unique product transportation hub. That partnership will help the Oklahoma Department of Transportation reconstruct 66th Street near the property.
Kisling included TP&L in his monthly ERDA update listing Enid’s Top 10 economic development success stories. Other highlights were the Hanor Headquarters relocation from Wisconsin, the Love’s Travel Stop opening providing water line infrastructure, Vance Air Force Base runway construction, the Academy Sports + Outdoors opening, Chisholm View II wind farm construction, new Enid entrance signs, Koch Fertilizer plant expansion and the successful passage of Enid Public Schools’ $92 million bond issue and the Kaw Lake water vote.
As Kisling says, Enid is open for business and the rest of the country is starting to notice.
