ARDMORE, Okla. -- The Ardmore city council voted Monday night to go ahead and use the thirty acres on the southwest corner of Regional Park for the proposed university.
Officials say that's despite the fact the Park Authority asked for more time to look into the issue.
"What better investment can you make in your community than supporting education? Especially a campus that would mean so much to Ardmore….We must be ready to take advantage of the once in a lifetime opportunity," said Ardmore mayor Bob Geurin.
We asked you Monday what you thought, and here are the results.
Should the City of Ardmore re-zone the 30 acres of Regional Park in Ardmore for a future university, even without the Park Authority approval?
