Braum’s opens new store

Braum’s Ice Cream and Dairy Store is scheduled to open at 7300 Shields Blvd. on Sept. 28. The 5,756-square-foot store, Braum’s "W” model, will replace the one at 3217 Shields Blvd., which opened in 1986. It will be the third "W” store design in Oklahoma City area. The first opened at NW 39 Expressway and Tulsa Avenue in December 2007 and the second at Interstate 40 and Mustang Road last month. The stacked-stone exterior, composition gabled roof, double drive-through, open beamed ceilings and stained-concrete floors distinguish the "W” from older models.

City group studies impact fees
State Rep. Guy Liebmann, R-Oklahoma City, said he wants to find middle ground between homebuilders and Oklahoma municipalities on the use of impact fees. Liebmann held an interim study this week to discuss ways to improve the last legislative session’s Senate Bill 805, which would have imposed stricter guidelines on how cities and towns assessed and used impact fees. Such fees are charged to new developments to help pay for their impact on population growth and municipal infrastructure. The interim study also involved Mike Means, executive vice president of the Oklahoma State Home Builders Association, Oklahoma City Manager Jim Couch and Carolyn Stager, executive director of the Oklahoma Municipal League.
