The park is expected to be the focal point of the University North Park Addition, which features a retail district on the south end and a manufacturing center and business park on the north end.

One 30-acre tract on the north end already has been purchased from the city by the Norman Economic Development Coalition for the business park. The council is expected to consider selling an adjacent 30-acre tract to the coalition by next month for use as a manufacturing center.

Council action

In a business meeting Tuesday after the conference, council members approved a preliminary plat for Harvest Church on the west side of 36th Avenue NW, just north of Indian Hills Road. The church plans to build a parking lot and playing fields next to the church.
