No matter what the state unveils on license plates & identification; people are going to provide their personal critique.  Just hope we can meet with the real ID compliant
regulations.  My understanding is that the state has the information they need to move forward.



That state has had the information they need since real ID started years ago.  The state actively chose NOT to go along with it.  Just one more thing putting us at the bottom of list of good things and top of lists of bad things for the state.  We are proactively chasing Mississippi to the bottom, hoping to beat them every step along the way.

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.

Where tech companies should look to expand

Cheryl Young 9:48 am CST • November 4, 2019



Affordable markets

Oklahoma City and Kansas City lead the list of markets where tech companies should consider locating. These cities rank high in affordability — where typical income earners are spending a relatively smaller share of their income on housing, livability (Kansas City tops the list in this category) and the availability of tech skills.

Interesting article in December 1, Oklahoman on city beautification efforts that would result from MAPS 4 passage.


               $30 million for MAPS 4 would include beautification projects:

MAPS 4 includes up to $5 million for potential land acquisition and remediation of the northeast corner of NE 23 Street and Martin Luther King Avenue, home to the former Smart Saver grocery store, which closed in August. [CHRIS LANDSBERGER/THE OKLAHOMAN]


The MAPS 4 proposal for beautification includes significant funding to improve the aesthetics of the currently drab corridor to Will Rogers World Airport along Meridian Avenue. [CHRIS LANDSBERGER/THE OKLAHOMAN]

I rode the OKC streetcar on a recent visit and really enjoyed the experience.  We visited the new Scissortail Park and then got on the streetcar which stops next to it.  Rode it through downtown up to Midtown and checked out the new food hall The Collective.  Walked back through downtown to Scissortail Park with a stop at the Bombing Memorial (still a really somber and powerful place even so many years later).  I would love to see a similar streetcar circulator in downtown Tulsa someday, to connect the different districts.

Tulsa has a more active & viable downtown retail than OKC.  Our underground metro concourse tunnels killed our visible downtown street life. 

A Tulsa streetcar circular route (similar to Kansas City) in DT would help with people movement who frequent your downtown especially if the routes covered the more popular restaurants & retail.
