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.

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.
