Muskogee is trying to get developers interested in building stores at one of the busiest intersections in the city.
City and county leaders want to see the 68 acres of land near Highways 69 and 62 full of shops. It’s being called the Three Corners Development.
"We want to say that this is something that can put Muskogee on the map," said Mike Miller with the City of Muskogee.
The Three Corners Development project is just across the street from a next generation QuikTrip truck stop.
City and county leaders want to market the northeast, northwest and southeast corners of the Highway 69 and 62 intersections to potential developers.
Miller said, "A lot of traffic on there, and it's a vital highway for transport through Oklahoma. And that intersection is right with another state highway. There's a lot of traffic there."
The assistant city manager said the proposal calls for plenty of retail and commercial space.
"The land has been vacant for generations, so a lot of credit needs to go to the city council and the county commissioners that have worked together, and some private land owners that have worked together, to say this land is prime for development, and now is the time," Miller said.
The city council will vote on the proposal this week. Developers will have to bid on the project, their deadline is this fall.
