OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Provide adequate water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure to ensure support to the growing medical, research and office developments projected within the District. The OKC Innovation District and Capitol Environs Land Use and Strategic Development Plan, adopted by the City of Oklahoma City in 2019, is the partnership framework for a dense, active, safe and well-connected mixed-use environment.
The core and environs of the Innovation District house the state's key players in its bio-med sector. The City and its partners have a decades-long proven track record of success in this area. As with other revitalization efforts across OKC, the provision of infrastructure has consistently triggered the desired follow-on development.
Much of the infrastructure in the community-commercial and neighborhood sub-areas is old and needs to be right-sized to ensure the Innovation District plans for commercial and neighborhoods investment are served. The non-campus areas of this predominantly African-American and low-income community was high on the vulnerability index pre-covid and has suffered additional losses in prosperity throughout the pandemic.
Installation of water, sewer and stormwater mains will meet Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust (OCWUT) and Public Works' standards, and will meet the expenditure deadline of Dec 31, 2026. The goal is to trigger additional private development, which will be measured via City building permit data.
