That was the question asked of me this morning when someone called me talking about how a MAPS 3 ballot consisting of transit, a convention center and a Core to Shore central park was presented as a done deal at yesterday’s Olympic training site announcement along the Oklahoma River. The person asked me if there had been a council vote or any community meetings leading up to this apparent decision.
My response: I don’t know of any community meetings on what should be on the ballot. I don’t know of a council vote that has taken place to date and that the mayor is only one of nine votes.
As for further discussion of all this, I still await some guest blog posts from about two dozen people I emailed a week and a half ago. Several agreed to participate, but I’ve only received three to date. I’ve got to wonder if the others don’t respond, does that mean they think downtown’s future has been adequately discussed and there should be no further debate or discussion?
