About MAPS 4

MAPS 4 is a debt-free public improvement program funded by a temporary penny sales tax, which would raise a projected $978 million over eight years. It requires approval from Oklahoma City voters.

MAPS 4 would keep Oklahoma City’s sales tax rate unchanged. The sales tax 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 tax to fund MAPS 4, each project will be refined in the coming years as the process unfolds, much like the previous MAPS programs. A volunteer advisory board will make recommendations to the City Council, which has final oversight.
