FREE WEBINAR February 22: MAPS: Oklahoma City’s Renaissance through Self-Investment and Economic Development

Friday, February 22, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST

Oklahoma City has set a standard for thriving communities by never slowing down its progress. 
Its reinvention is ongoing and gaining momentum with dozens of new investment projects either 
forthcoming or already being constructed. Since the creation of MAPS (Metropolitan Area Projects) in 
1993, over $5 billion in private investment has occurred in downtown, with much more on the horizon. 
MAPS has made Oklahoma City a place where people want to live, entrepreneurs want to do business 
and companies want to grow. 

MAPS 3 is a 10-year program designed to improve the quality of life in Oklahoma City through the 
construction of eight projects funded by a limited term, one-cent sales tax initiative that began in April 
2010. Russell Claus, Director of Planning for the City of Oklahoma City, and Cathy O’Connor, President 
of The Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City, will discuss the history of the MAPS 
initiatives, private investment that has occurred as a result, and ongoing planning for leveraging private 
investment from MAPS 3 projects.
