MAPS is acknowledged as the primary driver of Oklahoma City's recent cultural and economic renaissance, and Oklahoma City residents have the opportunity to continue that momentum when they vote YES on the MAPS 4 proposal. MAPS 4 is a debt-free program funded by a temporary penny sales tax which would raise a projected $978 million over eight years.

Those funds would be invested in 16 projects that address neighborhood and human needs, as well as quality-of-life and job-creating initiatives. When passed on December 10, all this will be accomplished without raising the sales tax rate. Collections will begin on April 1, 2020 when the current temporary Better Streets, Safer City portion of the sales tax ends.

Also similar to previous MAPS programs, a Citizen Advisory Board will provide oversight for the implementation of MAPS 4, with the Board having a similar structure as the MAPS 3 Citizens Advisory Board.
