In October 2015, the citizens of Norman approved (72% in favor) a temporary 1/2% sales tax to fund quality of life improvements in the City. Known as Norman Forward, this citizen-led initiative will renovate, expand, construct and fund multiple recreational facilities, libraries, parks, athletic venues, public art, trails, and more. This support for this initiative demonstrates Norman and it's citizens are committed to the bright future of our great City!
Planning of several projects has already began including the planning for the new Central and East Branch Library, the new Senior Center and the renovation of the Westwood Family Aquatic Center. To keep up with Norman Forward projects, check out the City's website.
