New hotel, event center proposed for Tahlequah

Apr. 19—A new hotel and event center development is under consideration and a public meeting is scheduled to inform the public.

Inventure, an architect firm in Tulsa in charge of design, invites individuals interested in the project to meet at Vidalia's Café and Catering on Tuesday, April 23 at 6 p.m. The site walk will begin at approximately 7 p.m.

The location of the planned hotel and event center is on the corner of College Avenue and Shawnee Street. This is the site of the Shawnee Street Theater, the former First Baptist Church that was demolished in 2019.

Individuals interested in learning more about the development are invited to join the architect for a conversation and to answer questions.
