Oklahoma City Opportunity Zones
WHY INVEST IN OKLAHOMA CITY?
Oklahoma City is unlike any other city in the world. Born in a single day at the sound of a gunshot, Oklahoma City was settled by a historic land run. A journalist who staked his claim in the run, wrote at the time about the spirit of the city, saying it has "an attitude that all things are possible if people are willing to take a chance and embrace the future without hesitation or reservation."
That same spirit lives today as the city undergoes a renaissance. Transformational public investments have dramatically transformed the face of the city, staking a claim for the future as a pre-eminent American city.
A combination of $2 billion in public investments in quality of life projects, combined with infrastructure investments of $2.4 billion and private investments of another $6 billion make this one of America’s most dynamic and fascinating communities.
Oklahoma City boasts clean air. Low crime. Easy commutes. Friendly people. New and renovated schools. An exciting, dynamic arts and music scene. A cradle of entrepreneurship. More than 300 days of sunshine per year. A great sense of community. Even an NBA team calls OKC home.
