Body

El Reno has already made it a few miles down the Route to the Future. The creation of a comprehensive plan for the city’s next 20 years has been discussed frequently over the last several months by members of the Municipal Planning Commission and volunteer focus groups.

The latest effort to bring people and ideas together started last week. Friday evening local residents gathered at the El Reno Public Safety Center to voice their opinions and take a peek inside the city planning process.

It just got easier to get around El Reno or even to Oklahoma City.

At a city council meeting on Tuesday, a new taxi service business was approved for El Reno.

McGee TaxiCab will likely begin operation within a few days. The owner and sole cab driver, Georgia McGee, has been pushing this idea for a couple of weeks. She’s excited the road has been cleared for her.

“I just want to help my community,” McGee said. “There’s a big need for this service in El Reno.”
