The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber has launched its campaign site for MAPS 3 and it looks like the city council will vote 8-1 next week to send the ballot to voters. It’s always interesting to see the campaign renderings, though one must realize these renderings are just that – campaign renderings – and the project designs will likely change quite a bit before everything is said and done (assuming MAPS 3 passes).
These renderings show what’s being proposed for downtown. Despite assurances by the mayor and others that no site is chosen yet for the convention center, it’s interesting to note nobody is budging from the Core to Shore site. The folks in Bricktown are quite afraid city leaders won’t reconsider the site and will continue to put all their emphasis on Core to Shore at the expense of Bricktown restaurants and merchants. That said, the Bricktown Association is listed as endorsing the ballot on the www.yesformaps.com website by the chamber.
So what are your thoughts?
