MAPC to consider Wall of Honor plan

ENID, Okla. — The Enid-Garfield County Metropolitan Area Planning Commission will meet in regular session at 6 p.m. Monday to consider, among other items, a site plan for the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Memorial Wall to be placed at Enid Woodring Regional Airport.

Woodring Wall of Honor Board raised $500,000 to purchase the wall from AVTT last year.

The formerly traveling wall made its final stop in Enid last November, accompanied by an escort of about 300 motorcyclists, many of them Vietnam veterans.

MAPC commissioners will consider a permanent site for the memorial wall, adjacent to the existing Woodring Wall of Honor.

The site plan specifies a location at 1026 S. 66th, located on the southeast side of Boeing Road just inside the airport entrance. The land under consideration currently is zoned for agricultural use.

The site plan also includes a parking lot on the northwest side of Boeing Road, across from the memorial wall, with bus parking and space for 24 passenger vehicles.

Tonight’s agenda includes a staff recommendation for approval of the site plan, contingent on relocating existing gas and water lines at the site.

Another agenda item before MAPC commissioners involves a land use amendment for lots 1, 2 and 5-9 in block 31, Midway Addition. The property, in the 2500 block of North Jackson, about two blocks north of Willow and one block east of Van Buren, would change the land use designation from low intensity residential to medium intensity commercial for construction of a steel storage building.

The agenda states the proposed amendment is consistent with the 2025 Comprehensive Plan, which calls for expanding the commercial zone along North Jackson.

MAPC commissioners also will consider a site development plan for a new dental office, to be located at the former location of the Playa Azul restaurant at 3521 W. Garriott. Playa Azul now is located at 2731 W. Garriott.
