The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Dozers at the ready

Back in April, Powers Nissan in Midwest City was being handed a condemnation order by Oklahoma County commissioners, hoping to clear away areas near flight paths at Tinker Air Force Base and thereby give the Base Realignment and Closure folks one less reason to put Tinker on their lists of bases to close.

Powers sold the property at 8029 SE 29th Street to the county, which leased it back to the dealership for six months so a new location could be sought. The lease is now up, and the county has now given Powers until the end of the month to vacate.

David Stanley Dodge, one block to the west (Midwest City numbering being what it is, they're at 7609), isn't going anywhere.
