MAPS 20th Anniversary Celebration
MAPS is Oklahoma City’s visionary capital improvement program for quality of life improvement projects. MAPS was funded by a five-year, one-cent sales tax passed by Oklahoma City voters in December 1993. The initiative called for the renovation and/or construction of nine major projects in Oklahoma City’s central business district. Since MAPS passage in 1993, Oklahoma City has seen more than $5 billion in new public and private investment throughout the city.
The nine MAPS projects took 10 years to complete, much of that time coexisting with Oklahoma City’s efforts to rebuild after the tragic 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. In the past 20 years, after rising together in the face of tragedy, the city has experienced a major renaissance that continues today and is a model for communities across the nation.
Guests will enjoy exciting elements from the Oklahoma City Thunder game day experience followed by the introduction of the key players from MAPS, including Mayors Norick, Humphreys and Cornett.
