The Engagement Process
The most important part of this project is engaging with the public and stakeholders to gain a deep and authentic understanding of Oklahoma City. As an all local team, we know people want to be involved, and want their voice to count. We are taking a “roll your sleeves up approach, whether that means walking around downtown, neighborhoods, or districts, attending public events, or talking to business owners, young families, retirees, minority groups and more. Our goal is to identify what improvements residents and visitors would like to see — what are the commonalities, and what are the differences? The more people we talk to, the better! What does Oklahoma City look like and have to offer visitors? When visitors fly into Oklahoma City or drive through neighborhoods what impression does Oklahoma City give? What areas need beautification improvements? How do residents feel about living here? These are just some of the questions we’ll seek to answer through the engagement process.
We want to hear every voice in the community. The best decisions aren’t made in a vacuum, and that’s especially true for a beautification project. It’s important to hear from you about why you love living, working in, or visiting Oklahoma City. Without true, meaningful engagement, the project will not be representative of the whole community and will not be a success.
