The Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission has approved a prime location just across from the east entrance to the Capitol Building as the future site of The Bill of Rights Monument Plaza at the Oklahoma State Capitol.
The site was first suggested by State Capitol Restoration Project Manager Trait Thompson, and subsequently won the support of Dan Ross, Capitol Assets Management Administrator at OMES (the Office of Management and Enterprise Services), and Duane Mass, Architect of the Capitol, who then brought it to the CPC for approval.
We are extremely grateful for the input and guidance we received from these individuals and their agencies, as well as for their active engagement in determining the best possible site for our Bill of Rights Monument within the context of the Capitol’s overall master plan. We are also grateful for the support of CPC Chairperson Vickie Hicks and all commission members present, as well as the efforts of our Oklahoma Capitol Project Advisory members Natalie Shirley, Gary W. Banz and Rita Aragon.
