Five Oklahoma Towns and Cities Selected for Assistance Projects

Christy Christoffersen

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Municipal League (OML) and the University of Oklahoma Institute for Quality Communities (IQC) are pleased to announce 2019 Quality Communities Grant recipients. Through the Quality Communities Grant, OML provides supporting funds to towns and cities for IQC assistance projects.  Projects focus on land use, urban design, public spaces, historic preservation, streetscapes, and other characteristics of the built environment in an effort to improve outcomes for quality of life, public health, and economic development.

Assistance projects will be carried out by interdisciplinary teams of students from the University of Oklahoma Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture (GCA). Teams are tasked with hosting workshops and interviews to learn from local community members, analyzing the conditions of a community, and providing recommended solutions to local challenges. Teams work through classroom projects and research assistantships supervised by OU faculty and staff.

Past recipients have leveraged findings from assistance projects to formally adopt plans, to seek grant funding for implementation, and to move forward for implementation of changes. 

2019 grant recipients in alphabetical order are:

  • Britton District of Oklahoma City, with the City of Oklahoma City and Britton District Association

  • Hooker, Oklahoma, with the Town of Hooker and Texas County Health Department TSET Healthy Living Program

  • Luther, Oklahoma, with the Town of Luther and Luther Parks Commission

  • Pryor, Oklahoma, with City of Pryor Creek, Pryor Main Street, Mayes County HOPE Coalition, and Mayes County Trails Alliance

  • Sand Springs, Oklahoma, with the City of Sand Springs 

Assistance projects will take place between September of 2019 and May of 2020. Further information can be found online for the Oklahoma Municipal League (http://oml.org) and OU Institute for Quality Communities (http://iqc.ou.edu).
