OKC VeloCity | Steve Lackmeyer to host annual Downtown Year in Review

Steve Lackmeyer to host annual Downtown Year in Review

By Staff Reports / Member News / November 4, 2019

Plans for developing the Oklahoma City urban core are progressing and on Dec. 10 voters will be asked to vote on a fourth go with MAPS.

But how will the less publicized aspects of MAPS 4 fit in with the future American Indian Cultural Center and adjoining commercial development being planned by the Chickasaw Nation? How will corridor improvements link the south shore cultural and commercial development -- led by the Chickasaws, with the boathouse district -- and plans for commercial development on the north shore?

Connections and fitting pieces together with the Innovation District also are part of MAPS 4 improvements, while development in and around the Chesapeake Energy Arena and a multi-use soccer stadium might go beyond what is being proposed to voters.

Our panel is carefully selected to delve into the details of both the MAPS 4 proposals for the urban core and how they fit into other public and private development.

This year’s panelists are:

David Holt, OKC Mayor

Gov. Bill Anoatubby, Chickasaw Nation

Berry Tramel, The Oklahoman

Katy Evans Boren, OKC Innovation District

Mike Knopp, Boathouse Foundation

Darren Ransley, OKC Energy FC

December 3rd at The Sheraton Downtown OKC, 6 to 8:30 p.m.
