2000 - Community Effort Awards - Oklahoma City Beautiful Coalition
The Oklahoma City Beautification Coalition is a
unique partnership, bringing together civic and non-profit
organizations, city government, and chambers of commerce to impact
community appearance in the Oklahoma City metro area. The Coalition
tackled the Airport as one of their first projects. They enlisted the
help of Landscape Architects to create a beautification plan for the
corridor between the airport terminal and Airport Road, often the place
where visitors get their first impression of the state’s capitol city.
Airport officials are now in the process of the finalizing and
implementing those plans.
The Coalition has enacted neighborhood campaigns to clean up
signs along city streets and to enforce code violations which affect
community appearance. Plus, they have expanded their vision to include
beautification of more than 100 miles of interstate highways in the
metropolitan area; the most ambitious highway beautification plan
anywhere in the country. THE OKLAHOMA CITY BEAUTIFICATION COALITION
IS SETTING A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR OKLAHOMA COMMUNITIES AND THAT’S
DEFINITELY GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
