MAPS 4 the value of a car
(Mike Allen)

Did you know that the vote for MAPS 4 is this Tuesday? I feel like it has crept up on all of us, or maybe it’s just me.

Opposition to the package of projects this time around appears to be limited. I have not seen any paid advertisements against MAPS 4, and a Facebook group dedicated to ending the MAPS penny sales tax has 588 members. Overall, I haven’t seen much about Tuesday’s vote one way or another, but one comment I have heard seems to acknowledge that the MAPS 4 projects don’t have the same “wow” factor we’ve become accustomed to with previous MAPS.

The benefits of Scissortail Park, rebuilt schools and Bricktown’s ballpark and canal are easy to quantify, or at least there is a tangible way voters can see what their money is getting them. With many of the projects in MAPS 4, that just isn’t the case. These items are needed in a city of our size, however. So what are we to do?

Let us know in the comments how you’re planning to vote Tuesday.
