The municipal leader organization, Accelerator for America, visited Oklahoma City to learn about MAPS 4 and Opportunity Zones. Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt said the group was excited to hear about the new Homeland grocery store planned for a northeast Opportunity Zone.
What we’re talking about – and what you’re going to hear more about in the next few months – are the Metropolitan Area Projects.
Mayor David Holt and the Oklahoma City Council approved an ambitious and unique MAPS 4 package for voters to consider in a special election on Dec. 10.
The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber is pleased to see the inclusive MAPS 4 projects list that will be considered by the city council for a public vote. Greater Oklahoma City Chamber President and CEO Roy Williams said the package of projects is the right combination of what the city needs to keep moving forward.
It hasn't even been active for a year, yet the OKC Streetcar is already right at home.
With an estimated 100,000 visitors, Grand Opening Weekend (Friday, Sept. 27 through Sunday, Sept. 29) will be a momentous event for Oklahoma City. The Park is looking for volunteers to help fill close to 700 shifts.
The request includes four projects and an operating fund, which were outlined as economically-vital district improvements in Perkins + Will’s land use and strategic development plan which was released last week.
The process for identifying which projects will make the cut for the next MAPS initiative, expected to be decided by Oklahoma City voters this December, is well underway.
