Popeye’s restaurant project on hold, BDA says

What’s going on with Popeye’s? Are they still coming here?

There are still no permit applications on file with the City of Bartlesville regarding Popeye’s restaurant or the location,1300 S.E. Washington Blvd. According to the Bartlesville Development Authority, the project appears to be on hold “but is still alive.” The waiting game is frustrating but not terribly unusual, according to the BDA. “We should know more about the status in the next few weeks,” BDA officials said last week.

What’d they say?

Are the results of the Solid Waste Survey in yet? What were the results?

The survey, which asked local residents to weigh in on their preferences and willingness to pay for solid waste services including recycling, street sweeping and other temporary or seasonal collections or drop-off programs, closed July 1.

The results are in the process of being compiled by consultant NewGen Strategies and Solutions. A representative from the company is expected to report the findings in full to the Bartlesville City Council during the Aug. 6 council meeting. The meeting will be held at City Hall, 401 S. Johnstone Ave.

City Council meetings are open to the public and aired on Cable One’s local channel, as well as live-streamed on the City’s website, www.cityofbartlesville.org.

Paddleboards, kayaks & canoes

Are paddleboards allowed at Hudson Lake?

Yes, they are, as are kayaks and canoes. The same goes for Lee Lake, located on Adams Boulevard east of Silver Lake Road. Both Hudson and Lee Lake are owned by the City of Bartlesville. Note that swimming is not permitted at either lake. See www.cityofbartlesville.org for more information.
