Oklahoma City Invests in Downtown

By investing in core economic development, Oklahoma City is building a better downtown. A new video from Smart Growth America highlights the groundbreaking urban work of Mayor Mick Cornett, a CEOs for Cities partner, and the city council. Mayor Cornett understands that "the quality of life in the suburbs is directly related to the intensity of the core of the city," so he is turning his once sprawling city around. By investing in transportation, schools, and amenities and pushing for smart growth strategies that prioritize health and job creation, Mayor Cornett is improving quality of life and quality of place in Oklahoma City. Mayor Cornett is energizing his constituents and his civic leaders to produce a thriving urban core through long-term investments.
