OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Provide water, sewer and drainage infrastructure to a Housing Authority-owned site that is slated for redevelopment to add additional low-income housing.
One of the barriers to housing affordability is the cost of the land and infrastructure. The City has a proven track record of using the low cost of publicly-owned land and infrastructure subsidies to make the end product affordable to those in need.
This has been a subsidized low-income neighborhood for decades. The Housing Authority intends to redevelop it to replace old housing units and add additional units to benefit more low-income individuals. This is a predominantly African-American and low-income community, which 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 be done to Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust (OCWUT) and Public Works' standards and will meet the expenditure deadline of Dec 31, 2026. The goal is to make the area development-ready.
