Fayetteville’s Eco Modern Flats continues to receive accolades. The 96-unit apartment complex was named one of 27 finalists in the Urban Land Institute’s 35th annual Global Awards for Excellence competition.

Here’s a recap of last night’s City Council meeting. Items passed included overnight and weekend operation of a UA parking lot off West Avenue, regulations on door-to-door solicitation and more.

Despite a lot of press about an unofficial bid for the 2024 Summer Games, officials in Tulsa said yesterday they are not actively seeking an Olympic bid.
