OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma City City Council officially approved the MAPS 4 implementation plan Tuesday.

The new coliseum at the fairgrounds and improvements to the Paycom Center will be under construction first.

“Now all I have to do is follow this road map. I’m ready to go and start building these projects,” said MAPS Program Manager David Todd.

Todd said work on the other projects will begin very soon.

“Fourteen of 16 projects start immediately, as far as operator selection or design,” he said.

MAPS 4 has a $978 million price tag which is collected through a penny sales tax.

Wellness Centers, which the city already has after MAPS 3 and the animal shelter are the two projects that won’t begin right away, according to Todd.
