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.   

“MAPS 4 is a broad package that meets many needs in our city – most notably in our neighborhoods and in our daily lives. It also enhances our quality of life and promises to diversify our economy,” said Mayor Holt. “I thank the people of Oklahoma City for their unique role in this process. This is really the MAPS that the people made. And I want to thank the Council for their hard work developing this vision for our future. I now look forward to the conversation with the people of Oklahoma City in the months ahead as we approach the December vote.”

The proposed MAPS 4 program includes all 16 of the projects that received a scheduled presentation during this summer’s special meetings. It would raise a projected $978 million over eight years, debt-free, funded by a temporary penny sales tax. It requires approval from Oklahoma City voters in the Dec. 10 election.
