OKLAHOMA CITY — With the city set to build a streetcar system in its downtown area, a team has been formed to put together a comprehensive communications plan intended to inform the public, as well as downtown retailers, property owners, and other stakeholders, of specific plans related to the streetcar system's installation, The Oklahoman reports.

The communications team consists of the City of Oklahoma City's public information office, its MAPS 3 team, Anglin Public Relations, Embark, and ADG, which is the program manager for the city's MAPS 3 program.

Once operating, the streetcars will operate on two routes using five cars, one circling the city's entertainment core, and the others servicing a route that passes the county and federal courthouses, the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, and circles Midtown.

Numerous businesses operate along the routes, so the group's plan is to work with those business and property owners to be sure their operations are disrupted as little as possible. For the full story, click here.
