Muskogee Forward

Muskogee Forward was created through a community economic development planning process bringing together public and private sector leaders to build on the success of previous planning initiatives producing a strategic plan with specific catalyst projects. With these takeaways in mind, Muskogee Forward sets out a strategic action plan that defines the role that traditional and nontraditional economic development partners can play in addressing the community’s challenges while maximizing its many opportunities.
