Convention center scheduled to open Fall, September-November



The Omni hotel under construction adjacent to the convention center will encompass 576 guestrooms and 29 suites (605 rooms), along with a spa, a fitness center, a pool deck with bar and grill, as well as multiple dining options.

The current MAPS 3 was funded by a one-cent sales tax that began in April 2010 and ended in December 2017. The new convention center is only one of eight projects funded under this $805 million capital improvement program.

City-wide Oklahoma City had 17,166 hotel guestrooms as of March, of which 2,794 were downtown, according to Visit OKC.

Fellow Tulsans:

The Northeast area of the state (Tulsa metro) should have a Level 1 Trauma Center at St. Francis Hospital.   IIRC St. Francis was a Level 1 Trauma Center back in 2003:

Quote
St. Francis and OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City are the only trauma centers in the state to be at level one. St. John, which was working toward its ACS certification, was given a temporary level two status.

State reimbursement for unpaid health care is distributed to the trauma centers based on their levels, with level one facilities getting the most.

St. Francis officials recently looked into renewing their certification with the ACS and found that the criteria to achieve their earlier status had been raised.

Thomas said the main stumbling block was the increase in trauma-based research, which St. Francis doesn't have and can't afford.--Published: Sun, May 11, 2003 12:00 AM Oklahoman.

IMO, the state should set aside funding for a second Level 1 Trauma Center in the Tulsa area.  The area represents a big portion (quarter, 991,561) of the state's population.

Oklahoma City's Bricktown Canal waits the spring.

                             

The three year interval cleaning of the canal is complete.  Spring will provide a backdrop for canal activities.

No, I'm thinking it won't. There's not going to be much in the way of "activities" anywhere this spring.

And please, for the love of god, stop with the huge fonts and massive pics or you are going to have to turn over your HTML for Dummies book.
