Downtown Walkability and Bikeability
The Downtown Strategic Initiative (DSI) is a public process facilitated by the City of OKC Planning Department to prioritize the next steps for the continued revitalization of Downtown. Currently, the topic of “Movin’ Around” Downtown is being looked at.
What are your concerns about walking and cycling Downtown? What is the biggest issue that needs to be addressed? Please send your ideas and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org so that Urban Neighbors can effectively contribute to this process.
