Event Details


Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt will be the featured guest at a public forum Sept. 17 on the city’s ambitious MAPS 4 proposal that would generate close to $1 billion in public funding – much of it aimed at addressing human-services and neighborhood issues.

The forum, which is free, will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the Oklahoma History Center. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register online.

Oklahoma Watch Executive Editor David Fritze will moderate the discussion. Audience questions will be allowed during the second half of the program.  

On Tuesday, after hours of discussion and a year of public comment, the Oklahoma City Council unanimously approved letting voters decide on the MAPS 4 proposal in a special election on Dec. 10. The measure would extend the 1-cent MAPS sales tax for eight years starting April 1, 2020, and is estimated to raise $978 million.

MAPS 4 would fund 16 projects, including improvements in parks, transit, sidewalks, senior wellness and youth centers, mental health and domestic violence programs, an innovation district, the animal shelter and beautification. It would also pay for a new multipurpose stadium and improvements to the Chesapeake Energy Arena and the Fairgrounds Coliseum. 

ABOUT MAYOR DAVID HOLT

Holt was elected Oklahoma City mayor in February 2018 with nearly 80 percent of the vote, becoming the city’s youngest mayor since 1923 and the first Native American one. He served eight years in the Oklahoma Senate and previously was chief of staff to former Mayor Mick Cornett. A native of Oklahoma City, Holt received a bachelor’s degree from George Washington University and a law degree from Oklahoma City University. He works for a family-owned investment company.
