Q. Where is the most potential?

A. Coordination and focus. Oklahoma City’s greatest potential lies in coordinating large public investments like transit with local infrastructure and land-use policies. Such an approach will empower citizens to actively transform the city one block at a time. Different neighborhoods and districts will require a different approach to the oversight of infrastructure and development — we can’t afford a one-size-fits-all approach.
