(Tulsa-AP) -- A bond issue is being proposed for renovation of
Tulsa's Expo Square.

The Tulsa County Public Facilities Authority will consider a
21-point-5 million dollar revenue-backed bond issue. It would
finance the first phase of large-scale capital improvements to
remake Expo Square.

The first phase would include six million dollars spent to
renovate the Pavilion. Construction of a new livestock arena and
livestock barns would cost approximately 8-point-5 million
dollars. And construction of a new fair midway and parking area
would tally 2-point-5 million dollars.

The second phase of the master plan could include the
construction of a new museum and interactive learning center.
Renovation of the Exposition Building and improvements to the
Oklahoma National Guard Armory are proposed.
