Honoring Dan Batchelor’s Lifetime Impact on OKC

No one has had a more instrumental, behind-the-scenes impact on how Oklahoma City has been shaped over the last 50 years than Dan Batchelor.

In his role with Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority (OCURA), Dan Batchelor has helped Oklahoma City develop an efficient economic development engine that concentrates incentives, resources and support into a one-stop-shop and positions Oklahoma City to be a model for being developer-friendly and highly effective at public-private partnerships.

As he retires, we applaud his life’s work and know that his impact and shaping of Oklahoma City’s destiny will be remembered by many and enjoyed by all who call our city home.

With some water and storm sewer infrastructure improvements in the planning now, these now vacant areas adjacent to the park will be ripe for development.
