Officials ready to move on developing OKC's Innovation District

Key leaders of an effort to create an innovation district east of downtown say they're ready to implement changes that will include more flexible zoning, making streets more pedestrian friendly and launching symposiums for scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs.

The Brookings Institute and the Project for Public Places released its report on Tuesday at the Skirvin Hilton to a crowd including of key local players in health care, energy, aerospace and education.

As part of moving forward, the Oklahoma Health Foundation is set to oversee staffing and administration for the district.

David Harlow, chair of the foundation, said its board voted unanimously to take on the challenge of providing staffing and resources to begin implementing the report.

“That was the easy decision,” Harlow said. “Now the real work begins. It's really about job creation, industry development and that's what we need to focus on. And we have a nice framework to work with.”
