Ward 7 Councilwoman Nikki Nice to host town hall on Opportunity Zones, July 29

Post Date:07/22/2019 9:18 AM

Ward 7 Councilwoman Nikki Nice is hosting a town hall-style meeting on the Opportunity Zone program in Oklahoma City.

Opportunity Zones are areas across the U.S. where long-term investors can benefit from federal tax breaks. They’re intended to generate jobs and economic growth in areas where business investment is disproportionately low.

“Most of the Opportunity Zones in Oklahoma City are in Ward 7, and this is a great chance to learn more about the program and how it can improve our quality of life,” said Councilwoman Nice.

The town hall is 6 p.m. Monday, July 29, at Fairview Missionary Baptist Church, 1700 NE 7th Street.

Councilwoman Nice has assembled a panel of guests from The Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City and local investors to engage residents about what’s happening and the opportunities to come.
