It’s been more than two years since Oklahoma City residents approved the Better Streets, Safer City projects, which were backed by bonds and two sales tax initiatives.

The city continues to make progress on resurfacing roads, building sidewalks and bike lanes, and adding to the trail system. Within the 10-year bond package, the city also plans to fund larger projects such as an expansion at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium and building new club houses at three of the city’s golf courses.
