     Philanthropist Sue Ann Arnall intends to donate a 1.6-acre tract downtown for the MAPS 4 Diversion Hub, a gift that could be worth $1.1 million or more.

     A MAPS 4 advisory committee and the MAPS 4 Citizens Advisory Board will review Diversion Hub plans, including the location. The final decision will rest
     with the city council.

    It is one of four MAPS 4 projects with a strong focus on criminal justice reform, and the Arnall Family Foundation has pledged $20 million for an operations fund.

     The Diversion Hub opened in temporary quarters last June at 220 NW 10.   As the concept evolves, Executive Director Damon Britton said Wednesday, the focus
     has been on individuals in pretrial proceedings and those at risk of having probation revoked.

     Arnall told The Oklahoman last year that inspiration for the center came from a realization that parents' incarceration often leaves children in distress.--Oklahoman, January 17, 2021

Oklahoma City MAPS 4 Coliseum

    The MAPS 4 fairgrounds coliseum receives $9 million from MAPS 3 leftover funds.

            The Oklahoma City Council voted to allocate about $33 million in additional MAPS 3 sales tax collections with $9 million to fund the new fairgrounds coliseum.

    Fairgrounds executives pitched plans last summer for including a $95 million coliseum in MAPS 4 to replace the 55-year-old Jim Norick Arena.

    The city council settled on giving the fairgrounds $63 million but included, in a “statement of intent,” the expectation that MAPS 4 funding would
    be supplemented by “at least $25 million in hotel tax revenues as well as funding from MAPS 3 excess funds.

Oklahoma City MAPS 4 Youth Centers

                             (https://stories.usatodaynetwork.com/maps4/wp-content/uploads/sites/236/2019/11/Douglass-2.jpg)
                                                                 Four Youth Centers will be built throughout the city
(https://www.bakerassembly.com/wp-content/uploads/photo-gallery/thumb/Youth%20Center%20interior%205-sm.jpg) (https://www.bakerassembly.com/wp-content/uploads/photo-gallery/thumb/Youth%20Center%20Interior%203-sm.jpg) (https://www.bakerassembly.com/wp-content/uploads/photo-gallery/thumb/Youth%20center%20interior%202-sm.jpg)



Quick facts

              Total project budget: $110 million
              Budget items: Four new youth centers ($70 million), operating fund ($30 million), capital improvement operating fund ($10 million).

Afterschool and summer programming will be the focus of a $110 million package to provide for at least four new youth centers. The state-of-the-art centers would transform the lives of Oklahoma City’s youth with programming that includes athletics, arts, family, health and education. The new Douglass Recreation Center, which is already funded, will have youth facilities equatable to the MAPS 4 centers. Capital and operational partnerships with existing local community organizations are possible as MAPS 4 develops.

The package includes $70 million for capital, $30 million for an operating fund and $10 million for a capital improvement fund to keep facilities and equipment up to date for our city’s youth..

City Center welcomes 75 to 100 students a day in a 12,000-square-foot former church building next to Putnam City schools. Though the modest center might be a far cry from the new multi-million-dollar facilities that could come from MAPS 4, the City Center offers a similar structure for serving youth.

A kitchen, cafeteria, clothes closet and homework room welcome students walking in the City Center’s front door. The first features inside the building are designed to accommodate basic needs — food, clothes, education and companionship.

These are all possible features of the MAPS 4 youth centers.  They could provide space for activities, athletics and fine arts, with age-specific programming from infants to teenagers.

But, these centers would be heavily focused on meeting needs.  The youth facilities are likely to focus more on social services than gyms or pools, unlike the MAPS senior centers or the recreation center planned for Douglass Park.

MLS in OKC . . .

                MAPS 4 Stadium considering 3 sites

 
                                  Farmers Market. Land west of Classen and just north of I-40.
                           Wheeler Park. Currently owned by the city.
                           Producers Coop. Just south of Bricktown.

This is a presentation to the MAPS4 board. The stadium advocacy group is saying the facility needs to be downtown and near other entertainment. I suspect they are going to push hard for the Producers Coop site.--OKCTalk, March 3, 2021




(https://www.okctalk.com/images/pete/stadium030221f.jpg)
               This is the current selected option budgeted in MAPS 4:  $37 - $42  million

(https://www.okctalk.com/images/pete/stadium030221l.jpg)
                    An 18,000 - 20,000 seat stadium could cost $150 million - $200 million with all the luxury MLS bells & whistles.

Many factors could play into the stadium's construction like naming-rights, sponsorships and surplus MAPS money.  The MAPS 4 Multipurpose Stadium will at least have a minimum seating capacity of 8,000 with expansion capabilities exceeding 18,000.  The city has agreed to help with infrastructure funding if and when an MLS franchise is obtained by an ownership group.
