Better Streets, Safer City 

On Sept. 12, 2017, Oklahoma City voters approved 13 bond propositions and two sales tax initiatives known as the Better Streets, Safer City projects.

General obligation bond package

The 10-year, $967 million bond package invests in streets, police and fire facilities, parks and other basic needs. It succeeds the 2007 bond program, which is almost complete. Read more.

Permanent 1/4 cent sales tax

This measure will help hire 129 more police officers and 57 more firefighters with an annual $26 million boost for public safety and other day-to-day operations. It's the first increase in the permanent general operations sales tax rate since 1976. Read more.

Temporary penny sales tax extension

A temporary, 27-month continuation of the expired MAPS 3 penny sales tax will generate $240 million for street resurfacing, streetscapes, trails, sidewalks and bicycle infrastructure. Read more.

Upon completion of the second year, the Community and Neighborhood Advisory Board published an Annual Report to document the progress.


Project 180

The initiative, named Project 180, is a $176 million redesign of downtown streets, sidewalks, parks and plazas to improve appearance and make the central core more pedestrian friendly. Plans call for the addition of landscaping, public art, marked bike lanes, decorative street lighting and additional on-street parking spaces.

Project 180 streetscape renovations installed a series of destination markers throughout downtown Oklahoma City. The destination markers depict an aerial map with a small silver pin that denotes “you are here.” The outer ring of each destination marker highlights a local historic or pop culture event specific to the city. Twenty-five markers can be found and are mapped for a unique historically significant scavenger hunt.


Street Resurfacing

Projects funded by the general fund, Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG), Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT)  or county agreements.
