So it was a year ago or so that walkability author and expert Jeff Speck was brought to town to tell us how to make our downtown livable again. One of his key recommendations was to stop creating gaps in the urban fabric. So what’s going on since?
- We have the Oklahoma City Community Foundation in the midst of tearing down a second building along NW 10.
- SandRidge Petroleum is proposing interupting the “streetwall” along Robinson – downtown’s longest stretch – and replacing a building with open space. A similar plan is set for Broadway.
