Business Methods Offered for Managing City Resources / Norick Proposes Coordinated Legislative Efforts with Tulsa, Capital Improvement Plan, Lake Master Plan, W

"When we have some common goals, we should work together," Norick said. "Obviously, there will be some areas where we won't agree."

The comprehensive capital improvement and maintenance program would ensure that Oklahoma City has the "brick and mortar" resources to support and promote economic development, he said. …
