About MAPS 4

MAPS 4 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.

The MAPS 4 temporary 1-cent sales tax would keep Oklahoma City’s sales tax rate unchanged. It would take effect April 1 when the Better Streets, Safer City temporary sales tax expires.

The proposed MAPS 4 program includes all 16 of the projects that received a scheduled presentation during this summer’s special meetings. It’s focused on neighborhood and human needs, as well as quality of life and job-creating initiatives. More than 70 percent of the funding is dedicated to neighborhood and human needs.

The 16 MAPS 4 projects are:

If voters approve the MAPS 4 program, each project will be refined in the coming years as the process unfolds, much like the previous MAPS programs.
