Oklahoma City has a canal through a part of the city to promote placemaking. Hear Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett speak during the League's annual Capital Conference March 21, 2012, in Lansing, Michigan.
Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett has been at the forefront of the Oklahoma City renaissance. This revitalization has centered around "placemaking," which is a concept thoroughly advocated by the Michigan Municipal League. Cornett will be a guest speaker March 21 at the Michigan Municipal League's 2012 Capital Conference in Lansing.With Mayor Cornett leading the way, Oklahoma City became a major league city with the arrival of the National Basketball Association. During his tenure, Oklahoma City’s economy has been one of the strongest in the nation. Standing for efficient government and responsible leadership, Mayor Cornett has worked to promote an inclusive and optimistic vision of Oklahoma City, fueled by bold ideas. Cornett's humble nature, intense work ethic and optimistic attitude have become emblematic of a city that, as Cornett says, "works hard and dreams big."For details about his talk during the League's Capital Conference go here.
