PEOPLE WHO SHOULD COME
If you enjoy the content of this blog and want to join me, some of Oklahoma City’s top real estate and planning professional, and two of my favorite fellow bloggers for a night of candid discussion on all things OKC, then this is the even for you. I have had the pleasure of being involved with the ULI organization over the years. Initially in Oklahoma City as part of an effort to found the Oklahoma District Council and since as a student involved in the annual urban design competitions. I think highly of the organization, especially the group we have working locally, and have high hopes for the impact ULI can have on the land use and development practices in our city. So it was truly an honor to be asked to sit on the next ULI panel this Tuesday night at the Midtown Deli…
ABOUT THE EVENT
Okay, enough with the fluffy intro. This event is billed as a “candid ‘back room'” event and I am going to try to make sure we deliver (though I would request that if I do get run out of town, someone will at least drop me off at the airport). Here is the event description from ULI:
Some of the best insights about OKC Real Estate and Urban Planning are found on the web! Now three very popular BLOGGERS join us up-close and in-person! This will be a candid “back room” event — not the usual Yada Yada. 20 bucks buys you drinks, eats, and some stuff money generally cannot buy. If you come, bring a business card.
What will we talk about? A lot of that is up to you. Bring a business card so that we can put you on the “Roulette Wheel”. If the wheel lands on your name, you get to ask any question you want. Obviously, we will probably have to talk about MAPS 3. Hopefully we can offer a multifaceted view of the program. Even as an admitted fan of MAPS 3 and someone who plans to vote yes, it definitely isn’t perfect. We can also talk Devon Tower, Downtown Streetscapes, and the future of Bricktown, Automobile Alley, and the burgeoning Midtown district that is hosting the event Finally, while we have a suburban developer downtown, we should venture into some of the more technical aspects of development and the differences between urban and suburban development models – this might actually be a very beneficial discussion that we don’t have often enough.
ABOUT THE PANELIST
I can’t explain how I am qualified to be on the panel with Jeff and Steve, so I won’t try. I like and admire both of them, but we definitely view the city from varied perspective.
