Woodfin said Guthrie has the pieces in place to make the community an event and entertainment destination.
“If you are going to continue and make yourself a regional musical destination you have all the pieces and players in place,” Woodfin said. “You just have to work together to make it happen.”
Guthrie Mayor Mark Spradlin praised the students for their presentation.
“That is a great job,” Spradlin said. “You have given us some great ideas and I think we will go with some of them.”
The Guthrie City Council gave approval Tuesday night for the city manager to form a steering committee to craft ideas on how the city should spend sales tax revenue from the recent Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of Road Stopover concert to promote Guthrie as an arts and events destination.
Guthrie City Manager Sereniah Breland said the city won’t know what the sales tax revenue will be until Nov. 10.
“In the meantime I am asking the council that we develop a steering committee made up of members of our community to help guide us into our downtown improvements,” she said.
Breland said the steering committee would make recommendations and send them to the City Council for consideration.
