The Innovation District’s supporters gave their request for $100 million to the Oklahoma City Council on Tuesday during the last round of MAPS 4 presentations. 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, released last week.

“The Innovation District MAPS 4 projects are an ideal application of the MAPS model,” said Roy Williams, president and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. “(The projects) are transformative public investments that will spur private investment, create jobs and improve lives.”

The Innovation District is anchored by the Oklahoma Health Center and Automobile Alley and includes the surrounding neighborhoods.
