Central Fare in Ponca City Receives Development Grant from Phillips 66

 In response to COVID-19 social distancing practices, Ponca City Development Authority (PCDA) announced the Central Fare project this week. To further assist with equipment and community enhancement, Phillips 66 announced the award of a community investment grant application for $15,000 had been approved for Central Fare.

“Phillips 66 strives to make a positive impact in the communities where we operate” stated Erin Liberton, Community Relations Coordinator at the Ponca City Refinery. “To that end….We would like to offer our support for the Ponca City Development Authority’s ‘Central Fare’ project…” Central Fare will be a green space in the downtown area, with picnic tables, sunshades, string lights, and electrical outlets, located to the West of City Central at 400 E. Central Ave,

PCDA Executive Director David Myers stated: “This is a true partnership project. PCDA staff are confident these types of community projects will serve as a catalyst for our community. PCDA thanks Phillips 66 for being a great industry partner and supporting community development.” 

The Central Fare project is scheduled to be completed in late July. Once completed, Central Fare will be another leasable space to increase the offerings of City Central events, continue to provide adequate space for social distancing and be another attraction to bring people to our wonderful downtown area. Local eateries are encouraged to promote the outdoor tables as a lunch-time seating option.
