ACOG Board Approves Move to Lincoln Boulevard
Last month, the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments Board of Directors authorized John G. Johnson, Executive Director, to negotiate a final lease agreement between the organization and Oklahoma County. ACOG will lease a county-owned building formerly occupied by Langston University. The building is located in the corridor of state government at 4205 N. Lincoln Boulevard in Oklahoma C ity. 

"We are looking forward to the move," said Johnson. "The additional square footage and parking space will give ACOG an opportunity to expand and grow in the years to come. It's a wonderful development during our 50th anniversary year."
