Last issue, I wrote a MAPS 4 Q&A. For this issue, I wanted to look deeper into the initiative.
So, this is MAPS 4?
Yes, the original MAPS was approved by voters in 1993. Maps for Kids, passed in 2001, rebuilt the Oklahoma City Public Schools system and included money for suburban districts. MAPS 3 was passed in 2009.
Is MAPS 4 downtown focused?
No, the intention of the original MAPS was to invest in the urban core. Previous MAPS initiatives spent millions of dollars outside the city core. MAPS 4 will likely spend even more throughout the city.
