What’s happening across from Claremore First Baptist?

Construction crews work to clear the way for Claremore First Baptist Church’s new parking lot. The new lot will be constructed with pervious pavement, which allows water to seep through the pavement and into the ground instead of running off into the street.

Claremore First Baptist Church is building a new parking lot north of their building.

The lot is adjacent to Keely Lock and Key and the Belvidere Mansion.

City Planner Jill Ferenc said the parking lot will be constructed with pervious pavement.

Pervious pavement allows water to seep through the pavement and into the ground instead of running off into the street.

“It’s a unique project for Claremore,” Ferenc said. “We’ve been trying to promote these kinds of projects so that you don’t have to create a detention pond in order to develop a parking lot.”
