Situated within the beautifully renovated Osler Building. Midtown’s only hotel caters to guests seeking the very best in luxury and sophistication. Consistent with the Ambassador Collection’s dedication to preserving and celebratting its properties’ historic legacies, the hotel has retained its 1920’s era Art Deco architecture and charm.

Downtown Resident 2017 GO Bond Workshops Upcoming

We noted previously that there would be at least one GO Bond workshop per ward in the coming months, and the downtown ward (6 and 7) meetings have been announced. Please try to attend!

You are not restricted to attending any or all of the ward meetings, so if you’re just after information or have questions, feel free to attend any of the other meetings that might fit better into your schedule.

December Social at the Metropolitan

Please join your neighbors on Thursday, December 8, 2016, as we visit one of Downtown OKC’s newest urban living options, the Metropolitan Apartments at 800 North Oklahoma Avenue. The fusion of modern design, location and technology, all with an urban twist, make the Metropolitan the ideal destination to call home.

We will also continue our socks & undies drive for City Rescue Mission. Please bring a donation of new socks or undergarments for men, women and children for our less fortunate neighbors.

2017 GO Bond Elections and YOU

Tonight your Urban Neighbors Board attended the kick-off meeting held jointly by the City of Oklahoma City and the Neighborhood Alliance, for neighborhood leaders from throughout the city. From this meeting we have much to share, which we will do in the coming months, but for now here’s what’s critical to know:

  • GO (general obligation) Bond funding provides for capital improvement funding for city projects over the next several years (2007 GO Bond programs are still actively under construction!)
  • The election is in September 2017
  • The citizen awareness campaign goes through the end of February 2017, you will have no opportunity for input beyond that date!
  • There are TWO surveys to complete, the general resident survey (can be completed online), and the neighborhood survey (CANNOT be completed online). Make sure you and your neighbors complete BOTH surveys!
  • The city, Neighborhood Alliance, and your Urban Neighbors will be holding information sessions over the next few months. There will also be AT LEAST one community workshop per ward, so you will have several opportunities for engagement!
  • Everything you need to know is online
