The most comprehensive study of housing for the Oklahoma City metro will be presented at the Oklahoma City Council Meeting on Tuesday, August 31st at 8:30 AM. OKCMAR Board Member Jessica Thompson and Government Affairs Director Gary Jones have been involved in this study, serving on the Advisory Stakeholder Group.
OKCMAR Government Affairs Chair Glen Cosper stated, “We have been waiting for months for this presentation. The study has been in the works for almost 2 years.”
We invite you to attend the council meeting at City Hall, located at 200 N. Walker Ave. Please wear a mask. The meeting will also be live streamed.
This presentation is listed as item AN on page 7 of the 8:30 AM meeting agenda.
The findings show the city had sufficient, affordable, and adequate housing for those who make at or above the median income in Oklahoma City. However, for the 44% who do not make this level of income, the picture is different.
Oklahoma City commissioned the study to obtain a clearer picture of the current condition and availability of housing in the metro.
The report is a continuum of insight and strategies the community can pursue to help solve the issues in housing.
“OKCMAR’s leadership, working with the membership, plans to be part of this effort,” said Cosper.
