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 City.
"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."
