Rebuttal To Kill The MAPS Tax's Top 10 List: No. 6

KMT states:

6. The Most Popular Projects are Being Used to Sell the Least Popular.

You know, this point may be somewhat legitimate. I’m sure sidewalks and outdoor facilities are much more popular than convention centers. However, guess what? You’ve got to pay to maintain those sidewalks and outdoor facilities. How might that happen? I’d suggest you might start looking at revenues from a convention center or from downtown commercial development or from increased activity and job creation with Oklahoma City’s city limits, but that’s just me.
