Life in our Neck of the Woods: Showcasing the MidAmerica’s regional quality life assets

06/15/2023

MidAmerica’s “Life in Our Neck of the Woods” is a campaign to recruit new workers and citizens to the four corners region, or Mayes County. The campaign showcases the regional quality of life assets presented in a “weekends, weekdays and weeknights” theme.

As a part of this investment, the MidAmerica board of trustees felt it was important to assist the surrounding communities—Adair, Chouteau, Langley, Locust Grove, Pryor and Salina—in preparation for MidAmerica landing a big project. After a year of work with the Design Workshop consultants, the communities recently completed a plan for growth and are ready to begin implementation.

MidAmerica's "Life in Our Neck of the Woods" campaign aims to attract new workers and residents to Mayes County, located in the four corners region. To support this initiative, the MidAmerica board of trustees recognized the importance of helping the surrounding communities - Adair, Chouteau, Langley, Locust Grove, Pryor, and Salina - prepare for a major project that MidAmerica is set to undertake. After a year of collaboration with Design Workshop consultants, the communities have now developed a growth plan and are prepared to commence its implementation.

More than 60 people attended the Community Growth meeting held on March 23. Design Workshop presented growth plans and representatives from Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma Department of Transportation, Grand Gateway, as well as MidAmerica staff were present to help address resources for implementation.

MidAmerica and its communities are focusing on building capacity by attracting and incentivizing new housing developments; improving transportation and infrastructure, recruiting investments in commercial and mixed-use development, investing in parks, bike trails, natural resources, and community assets and contributing to education resources for higher education, tech training and K-12 schools.

With a $16 million investment in education, workforce training and recruitment, MidAmerica is providing a direct path from high school to a career with any of its current and future employers. These investments include: best-in-class STEM Labs in 18 school districts; MidAmerica’s Center of Excellence, an on-site career and training center; and training partners Rogers State University and NE Oklahoma Tech. 

MidAmerica’s quality-of-life investments are just one part of the overall growth initiative. As community leaders and citizens finalize their vision for their community, MidAmerica is working to stay ahead of the growing residential demands for new, quality housing options.
