I’m a bit late in posting this. Last weekend Jacksonville, Florida column Ron Littlepage, who proudly notes his Texas heritage, had this to say about downtown Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City, being in Oklahoma, isn’t exactly located in the middle of a garden spot. And the Oklahoma River that runs through it is OK, but it’s no St. Johns River.
As we look for ways to revitalize Jacksonville’s downtown and take better advantage of the St. Johns, we may want to look to Oklahoma City as an example of what can be done with a plan the citizens buy into and have the commitment to get it done.
Geez, being a Texan, that was painful to write.
