The board will meet monthly. Visit okc.gov/agenda for meeting agendas.
The subcommittees will focus on planning and implementation of certain projects, bringing recommendations to the full advisory board. The advisory board makes recommendations to the Oklahoma City Council, which has final authority over MAPS 4.
Mayor David Holt and the Council have not yet named members of the six subcommittees.
The MAPS 4 Citizens Advisory Board’s 11 members are:
- Teresa Rose Crook, Chairperson (at-large)
- Brenda Hernández (at-large)
- Russell Pace, Jr. (Ward 1)
- Allie Shinn (Ward 2)
- Harry Black (Ward 3)
- Shay Morris (Ward 4)
- Kevin Guarnera (Ward 5)
- Daisy Muñoz (Ward 6)
- Monique Bruner (Ward 7)
- Bob Nelon (Ward 8)
- Ward 8 Councilman Mark Stonecipher (rotating Council member)
The advisory board members representing each ward were recommended to the Mayor for appointment by the Council member representing that ward.
The board will elect a vice chair.
The terms will be staggered at first, with some members serving shorter initial terms to ensure some positions are eligible for re-appointment every year of the MAPS 4 program. All subsequent terms will be for three years.
The terms for Nelon, Guarnera and Shinn expire in 2021, followed by Bruner, Morris and Pace in 2022 and Muñoz, Black, Hernández and Rose Crook in 2023. Members are eligible for re-appointment. Councilman Stonecipher’s term as the rotating Council member expires in 2022.

About the subcommittees
Each of the six MAPS 4 Citizens Advisory Board subcommittees is dedicated to a specific project or group of projects.
The subcommittees will each have two members from the advisory board, who the Mayor will designate as the subcommittees’ chair and vice chair. Each subcommittee will also have five to seven at-large members. The full advisory board’s chair and City Council member may also serve as non-voting members.
The six subcommittees and their dedicated projects are:
- Innovation District
- Civil Rights Center
Like the board members, the subcommittee members will be appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Council. The terms do not have limits, but the Mayor can remove members at any time, with or without cause.
