JENKS, Okla. — Jenks city leaders unveiled a plan Monday for a redevelopment project in the city's downtown area.

The proposal would turn the 4.1-acre site on Main Street between Birch Street and a railroad parallel to First Street into a mixed-use development.

“Staff has been hard at work preparing this RFP,” Jenks Mayor Cory Box said. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime redevelopment opportunity and we’re very excited to release this and explore the private sector’s ideas.”
