The city will use the final list of projects as a sales pitch to get Oklahoma City voters to approve the Maps 4 Sales tax.
The one-cent tax would take effect in March 2020. But it would not raise taxes. The new tax would replace the temporary Better Streets, Safe City sales tax that's in effect right now.
