O K C 2 0 2 0 Oklahoma City will start the next decade with a new landscape as both MAPS 3-funded and private projects are completed.

O K L A H O M A C I T Y S T R E E T C A R Key to Oklahoma City’s connectivity will be the Oklahoma City Streetcar, which is currently under construction and will open later this year. The streetcar’s two route options—which span much of Bricktown, Midtown, Automobile Alley and the central business district—will serve 22 stops and provide easy access to many of Oklahoma City’s attractions. S C I S S O R T A I L P A R K This 70-acre, fully programmed park will connect the core of Oklahoma City to the shore of the Oklahoma River. Construction has begun on a 40-acre section across from the new convention center and will be completed in 2019, with the lower 30-acre portion set to open in 2021. The park will provide a variety of recreation activities, including walking/biking/running trails, picnic sites, youth sports fields, play areas and interactive water features.

O K L A H O M A C I T Y C O N V E N T I O N C E N T E R The new convention center and its adjacent headquarters hotel will allow Oklahoma City to compete for 80 percent or more events held in the United States, further developing the region’s hospitality industry. The $277 million center, which is projected to open in 2020, will feature nearly 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 30,000-square-foot ballroom and 45,000 square feet of additional meeting space. N E W C O N V E N T I O N C E N T E R H E A D Q U A R T E R H O T E L Connected to the new convention center and adjacent to Scissortail Park and Chesapeake Energy Arena, this new 605-room headquarter hotel for the convention center will be operated by Omni Hotel & Resorts. The full-service, four-star hotel will have six restaurants and bars with about 16,500 square feet of space, plus more than 50,000 square feet of ballroom and meeting space.



Leadership Notes

An incalculable impact A little more than 14 years ago, Mayor Mick Cornett was sworn in as Oklahoma City’s 35th mayor. When Mayor Cornett stepped into that leadership role, past leaders had set a foundation for Oklahoma City’s success: Our residents had endured the oil bust of the 1980s and rebuilt the economy, the first Metropolitan Area Projects were well on their way to transforming the community, and the MAPS for Kids program was starting its investment in the infrastructure of our schools. It’s what Mayor Cornett did with this foundation that is truly remarkable, and depending on your preference, there are many ways in which you can remember the success of his tenure as Oklahoma City mayor. For some, Mayor Cornett’s legacy will be how he inspired Oklahoma City to pursue a healthier lifestyle, encouraging our community to lose a collective 1 million pounds in the process. Others will remember Mayor Cornett’s time in leadership by the way he racked up awards and accolades, including being named the No. 2 mayor in the world by a panel of his peers in 2010. Many people will consider his role in landing an NBA team as the crowning achievement of his career, with the way he championed for public investment through the MAPS 3 program as a close second. For me, I will remember his time as mayor for the true partnership we developed under the shared goals of economic growth and community improvement. Whether we were meeting with an economic development prospect or working on retail development, his leadership and engagement were crucial to our success. He is leaving office with Oklahoma City a better place to be than when he arrived, and for that, I am incredibly grateful.

Companies Make Major Investments in Oklahoma City

S ince the beginning of 2018, Oklahoma City’s economy is seeing incredible momentum with the announcement of relocation and expansion projects. In addition to the announcement made by military target drone manufacturer Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc., WeGoLook and CACI International Inc. have also announced significant investments in Oklahoma City in the first quarter of this year. “This recent group of announcements underscores the strength of what Oklahoma City can offer companies with its business-friendly environment and continued investments in quality-of-life projects,” said Roy H. Williams, CCE, president and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. “The companies who are expanding in Oklahoma City play an important role in diversifying our economy and investing in our communities.”

WeGoLook, an Oklahoma City startup that grew to be the world’s first gig economy platform for business customers, announced last month that it will expand its operations and grow its local workforce in Oklahoma City over the next five years. WeGoLook plans to add more than 300 new jobs by 2023 and, while remaining based in Oklahoma City, continue its international expansion and rapid customer growth trajectory. “We are proud of being an Oklahoma-born company and committed to continuing to keep our roots here,” said WeGoLook CEO Robin Smith. “With incentive programs like Oklahoma City’s Strategic Investment Program, we are able to do that by growing our workforce and enhancing our workplace here in Oklahoma City.” WeGoLook combines technology with an on- demand workforce to gather and validate information. A

majority of the company was acquired in January 2017 by Atlanta-based Crawford & Company, the world’s largest publicly listed independent provider of claims management solutions to insurance companies and self- insured entities. WeGoLook operates as an independent subsidiary of Crawford & Company with more than 140 employees and 40,000 independent contractors dedicated to operations. Adding to the positive development in Oklahoma City is CACI International Inc., a company that provides cyber-security and information services to intelligence, defense and federal civilian customers. CACI will centralize some of its business operations in Oklahoma City by opening a shared services center. The center is expected to employ 550 people when fully staffed.

According to the company, Oklahoma City provides cost advantages and high-quality talent to support CACI’s business operations. By centralizing some of its transactional business operations in one location, CACI expects to optimize the delivery of cost-effective, quality services with greater reliability and consistency across the company. “We welcome the opportunity to expand our operations in Oklahoma City,” CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury said. In the first quarter of 2018, Chamber-assisted companies announced 1,410 new jobs and $165.2 million in capital investment in the region. The number of jobs announced is more than double over the same timeframe in 2017.

Preparing for Life



W ith voter-approved funding from sales tax collections, the City of Oklahoma City continues to invest in infrastructure and public projects throughout the community. From improving streets, growing Oklahoma City’s transit options and adding connectivity with trails, funds generated by a penny sales tax are transforming Oklahoma City into a better place to live and work. City council approves first Better Streets, Safer City street improvement projects In September 2017, Oklahoma City residents approved a temporary penny sales tax to address the No. 1 concern of Oklahoma City residents: improving Oklahoma City’s streets. The temporary penny sales tax took effect Jan. 1, 2018, after the MAPS 3 tax expired, and 16 street resurfacing projects have already been approved by the Oklahoma City Council. The projects are spread throughout Oklahoma City on highly Oklahoma City Sees Progress on Public Projects

traveled streets with the greatest need for improvements. These early start projects include two in each of Oklahoma City’s eight wards. The temporary sales tax is expected to generate about $240 million over 27 months: $168 million for street resurfacing, $24 million for streetscapes, $24 million for sidewalks, $12 million for trails and $12 million for bicycle infrastructure. Learn more about the projects it will fund and stay updated on progress at www.okc.gov/ bettersafer. OKC trails system continues to grow Oklahoma City’s first neighborhood trail opened in March as civic leaders cut the ribbon on MAPS 3’s Will Rogers Trail. As the second of three trails funded by MAPS 3, Will Rogers Trail connects Lake Hefner with the Oklahoma River. The Will Rogers Trail’s north trailhead is just south

of Lake Hefner. Heading southeast, the protected trail generally follows Northwest Expressway to the Lake Hefner Parkway. A crosswalk gets pedestrian and cyclists across Northwest Expressway safely. The trail then follows Interstate 44 south as it wraps around the north side of State Fair Park, then turns south following May Avenue to the south trailhead on the Oklahoma River Trails system. All but two blocks of the 8.1-mile trail are protected, and the entire path is ADA-compliant, multi-use and designed for two-way traffic. Also in March, city officials broke ground on the MAPS 3 Lake Draper Trail, which circles Lake Stanley Draper with a 13-mile path. The $12.6 million trail is expected to be completed this fall. The Lake Draper and Will Rogers trails join the 7.5-mile West River Trail, which was completed in 2015, in connecting thousands of residents, workers, shoppers and visitors to the

growing Oklahoma City trails system. Modern streetcar delivered to OKC The first modern streetcar for the Oklahoma City Streetcar system was delivered in February, marking the initial milestone in a year full of progress for the MAPS 3 project. The streetcar will have two route options: a 2-mile Bricktown loop, and a 4.8-mile mainline serving the rest of the central urban core. Three streetcars have already arrived, and the remainder of Oklahoma City’s streetcars are being delivered throughout the year. Altogether, the streetcar will serve 22 stops with five streetcars, which ride on rails flush with the street. Each streetcar can carry 104 passengers, and stops will be served every 12-15 minutes. Streetcars have already begun testing on the completed section of rails, and service for the entire project is expected to begin in late 2018.
