Be part of the brave, bold rebirth of a boomtown.

When it comes to a commitment to urbanism, Oklahoma City is all in. Since 1993—the same year as the first CNU —Oklahoma City residents have participated in an unprecedented transformation, driven by three broad-scale, comprehensive capital improvement programs that have leveraged more than $7 billion worth of private investment in downtown and nearby neighborhoods over the past 27 years. Equally impressive, Oklahoma City residents have agreed to a sales tax and pay-as-you-go approach which has made the process debt-free.

Today, Oklahoma City has a lot to show for playing the long game, including the ambitious reclamation of the Oklahoma River as a civic asset; restoration of historic areas like Bricktown to productive, mixed-use districts; and realization of the new 70-acre urban Scissortail Park—a vision championed by four consecutive mayors. Because of these civic improvements, residents are returning to downtown neighborhoods, like the walkable, bikeable Wheeler District.

Join us in Oklahoma City for the 29th annual Congress for the New Urbanism. Learn how a clear commitment to urbanism, careful financing, and resident engagement can spark a city’s renaissance.
