Watch This: A tale of two (Oklahoma) cities

In this half-hour broadcast of OETA’s Oklahoma Forum, Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett and Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett discuss the successes and challenges facing their cities with host Dick Pryor.  The Oklahoma Forum blog succinctly sums up the challenges facing each of Oklahoma’s most populated cities:

The cities have their special challenges – Tulsa is now looking at changing its form of government and is facing population migration to the suburbs.  In the last decade, while Oklahoma City was showing a 15% increase in population, Tulsa recorded a slight decline.  Meanwhile, Oklahoma City’s “Core to Shore” development that is a significant part of the MAPS 3 project is facing opposition from some on the City Council who believe the opening of the renovated Myriad Gardens makes the Core to Shore park unnecessary.
