"contemporary gray and white" makes me sad. You go to architecture school for years and come out and think "you know what the world needs, less pigment"




"Contemporary" - to 1936 prison or battleship colors.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area 2018-2017:

1,396,445 - 1,383,242 increase +13,196



At this rate of increase over the previous 3 years, Oklahoma City MSA should exceed 1,440,000 when the 2020 report comes out in 2021.

How OKC compares to our NBA small market peers:

     Memphis 1,350,620 - 1,347,596 increase +3.044
     Milwaukee 1,576,113 - 1,575,151 increase +962
     New Orleans 1,270,399 - 1,270,465 decrease -66
     Oklahoma City 1,396,445 - 1,383,242 increase +13,196
     Salt Lake City 1,222,340 - 1,205,238 increase +17,305

Hope we can eclipse the 20,000 year increase in the MSA.  The projected estimates have been  pretty accurate by the census bureau.  We are the core of our state's population increase.

The OKC economy use to be heavily dependent on the energy sector; diversification has helped over the last 25 years.

Yeah we still have any over-reliance on the energy sector in Tulsa though that is changing.  OKC has a more diversified economy and OU in the metro which helps with population growth.  I do think the seeds have been planted for Tulsa to have more similar growth as OKC this next decade.  The state depends on it as the rural areas and small towns will continue to bleed people.  Look at this map:

You'll see a boost in Tulsa's population within the next 10 years.  Tulsa's becoming more diversified in commerce; let's not write off the energy sector, it has its ups and downs.  Just wish we (OKC) has the beautiful hills and terrain Green Country possesses.  You'll see a break-thru in the Tulsa metro area;  seeing lots of development (Gathering Place & firm expansion-investment) on TulsaNow forum that plants the seeds for accelerated growth in T-town's future. 

 A city like Austin is growing so fast; they have future challenges to keep up with the infrastructure demand.
 
One good thing about growth; it works well when you plan and manage growth; once it get out-of-control--anything can happen.
