So fascinating to see how so many of the new developments in OKC are not pedestrian friendly, while very glad to see so many are pedestrian friendly in Tulsa.


Just as sad as it is here....

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.

I'm seeing this all over Oklahoma where developers are going in and crafting new neighborhood with no thought of pedestrian safety; bare minimum infrastructure requirements.  OKC started with its 2017 Better Streets, Safer City $967 million bond package; should cover a major portion of OKC's streets, bridges infrastructure:  https://www.okc.gov/residents/better-streets-safer-city-projects 

This is something we should have enacted long ago.

Oklahoma City's Lower Scissortail Park.

Hudcap City, Capitol Hill-Riverside, Wheeler, Film Row & Stockyards City

                         https://oklahoman.com/article/3868087/oklahoma-city-neighborhoods-riverside-area-is-built-on-faith

                    Area will receive a real boost from MAPS 3 with a second Wellness Center, it's also a heavy favorite for the MAPS 4 Multipurpose Stadium.
                    Lower Scissortail Park, 2nd Wellness Center, stadium, and street/bridge improvements will add in excess of $250 million in MAPS development
                    and bond funds to this area.








                    Should be a big boost for Oklahoma City's south side which includes Hudcap Alley.   Cusack Meat is the only business                                                             
                    that the city chose not declare eminent domain; they felt this would have slowed the process for completion of the park.
                    Many of the businesses (top pic) have been bought out and land acquired.  The area was saturated with salvage yards,
                    hud caps, muffler replacement, tire shops, used and classic auto parts and pawn shops--occasionally referred to as
                    Bartertown.

Oklahoma City Testing and Immunization Center





The building will be located next to the Health Department's offices on Northeast 63rd Street and will cost roughly $7 million dollars, financed by municipal bonds.

Dependent on staffing and supplies, the facility is expected to serve between 2,000 to 4,000 people a day and has the ability to operate 24-7.


Scheduled to open in July 2021 as part of the Oklahoma County Health campus, this 3-bay drive-thru testing and immunization facility will be located just north of Remington Park--there will be a neighboring warehouse planned.

A 200,000-square-foot kitchen? It's for Mom's Meals, coming to Oklahoma City

      

                                                    Crews have begun work on a 200,000-square-foot Mom's Meals kitchen and food prep center at 6849 S Rockwell Ave.
                                                    The Iowa-based company said the first phase of the $17,750,600 plant will be complete by the end of the 2021.
                                                    [CHRIS LANDSBERGER/THE OKLAHOMAN]

                                              ...Mom's Meals, which produces refrigerated home-delivered meals in the health care market — and which caused some southern
                                              Oklahoma seniors to turn their nose up last year — is building a 200,000-square-foot kitchen/food prep facility in Oklahoma City.

                                              The Rockwell Avenue plant will initially employ about 125 people and eventually up to 550, he said. Anderson declined to discuss
                                              details of state incentives. The Oklahoma Commerce Department did not have any information to release Thursday afternoon.

                                              Mom’s Meals provides prepared, refrigerated meals delivered directly to people's homes through Medicaid, Medicare and programs
                                              to support long-term, chronic, and post discharge care...

Oklahoma City convention center pics via OKCTalk.com


                                             Surface parking above is filled with worker's vehicles associated with the convention center complex.
 The new 1,100 space Convention Center Parking Garage wrapping up construction will provide convenient parking priority for the Omni & convention center.

                                                   Ground crews continue work on the land & streetscape that surrounds the convention center.
