City Council- Vote tomorrow!
Wear your “I Voted” sticker to the Plaza District tomorrow, and receive special discounts or treats!
Here in the Plaza District, we rely heavily on our relationship with City Council. The Commercial District Revitalization Program through the City of OKC provides funding and staff support to continue the progress we’ve made with our volunteers and community involvement. We work with the city to address issues as well as receive assistance in many areas–traffic, zoning, crime, permits, special events, funding, business assistance, renovations and more. Pretty much anything that happens in the district has gone through a process with the city first.
This is why our relationship with City Council is so important. We work tirelessly with departments within the city, but we need to be backed by City Council for ultimate decisions. Two of the four council members that sit on the Commercial District Revitalization Committee are up for re-election. Voter turnout is expected to be less than 5%…this is terrible considering local government is the easiest way to see change in your community!
The City of Oklahoma City is a huge part of why the Plaza District is here. The Plaza District is a great example of neighborhoods empowering themselves and working with local government to move forward. However, this goes even further than us. You have the chance to work in your own neighborhoods to make them a better place. Please vote tomorrow, and make sure your voice is heard–but not just tomorrow–stay involved!
