Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett addressed a record crowd of business leaders for this year’s State of the City Address.

Much of what Cornett had to talk about was good news for the city.

In his ninth State of the City Address, Mayor Mick Cornett says Oklahoma City is getting national attention with a growing population, strong business climate and low unemployment.

Cornett says Oklahoma City is also getting attention as a cultural center ranking in the top ten percent for cities which are growing in the areas of arts and entertainment.

“We have 8,000 people employed in the areas of arts and entertainment and this is proof once again that our commitment to arts in this community is paying large dividends in our efforts to create economic development.”

Cornett says while so much has been accomplished there is still much to be done especially in the areas of domestic violence, poverty and homelessness.

On the area of MAPS3, he says many of the projects are still in the planning stage, and he says work on the Boulevard has been delayed for a while by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.
