U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) applauded the American Planning Association’s announcement of the Guthrie Historic District in Guthrie, Okla., as a 2018 Great Place in America. The APA awarded this honor to the community today in Guthrie.
“I am incredibly pleased and not at all surprised that the Guthrie Historic District in Guthrie, Okla., has been named a 2018 APA Great Place in America,” said Inhofe. “Guthrie is a wonderful place to live and work, so this designation is a true testament to the work of Guthrie community members to continually improve their city.
“I am proud of my fellow Oklahomans in Guthrie for being awarded this honor and I want to personally congratulate each and every one of you who have worked to embrace your history while fostering partnerships to bring downtown economic development to life. Communities like Guthrie make Oklahoma the greatest state in the country.”
The APA celebrates Great Places during National Community Planning Month in October, APA’s annual observance celebrating the achievements of planning in the United States, and highlights the planning behind the neighborhoods, streets, and public spaces communities love most. Great Places are a result of thoughtful and deliberate planning by citizen advocates, planning professionals, and local elected officials.
