Two years ago, the voters of Oklahoma City approved a historic investment into the infrastructure of the metro. The Better Streets, Safer City bond was a $967-million package that included improvements to transit, libraries, parks, bridges and more police officers and fire fighters.
With the dawning of a new year, it is time to do a little self-reflection and set some goals for 2020 in the form of resolutions. If your goal for 2020 is a new job or you know someone who should be looking, be sure to bookmark www.ABetterLifeOKC.com.
You can put 2019 behind you with a celebration in downtown or visit our friends at Tower Theatre at the Uptown Get Down. There are still holiday-related festivities happening if you didnít make it to them yet, such as Illuminations at Myriad Gardens and snow tubing at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. See what else you can do this week while staying warm.
Itís the last week of the year, but thereís still plenty to do. From snow tubing to an OKC Thunder game, we give you several options to fight the after-Christmas boredom. Just be sure to double check the hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. See whatís happening in OKC this week.
In addition to the holiday cheer, festive greetings and goodwill towards all, this time of year also creates lots of trash (bah humbug!). Do your part to divert that waste away from landfills this holiday season by recycling.
Thereís no better time to start volunteering in your community than the holidays and Oklahoma Cityís Red Andrews Christmas Dinner is the perfect opportunity.
Ring in 2020 in Oklahoma Cityís historic Uptown 23rd on Dec. 31. The third annual Uptown Getdown New Yearís Eve party includes live music presented by SPACES Real Estate at the historic Tower Theatre & Ponyboy cocktail bar.
