A.J. Kirkpatrick seems to be everywhere, but now he will be based at Downtown Oklahoma City Inc. As an urban planner with the city since 2005, Kirkpatrick has been involved with Core to Shore planning, the Downtown Business Improvement District, Bricktown projects and the Urban Land Institute.
In his role at DOKC, he will serve as director of operations and will manage the BID, security and maintenance for the Underground – previously known as the Conncourse – oversee the Bricktown Canal and help launch new programs and initiatives focused on density, transportation and business development.
“I’m eager to work with the Downtown community in a new way,” Kirkpatrick said. “I’ll be communicating directly with the BID board of directors to implement new services that have been requested by Downtown stakeholders in past planning efforts.”
Kirkpatrick is from Wichita, Kan., and has a dual master’s degree in city and regional planning, and geography from Ohio State University
Jane Jenkins, president and CEO of DOKC, said Kirkpatrick will take the organization to the next level. It is a nonprofit formed in 2001 to organize and promote Downtown in conjunction with property owners, businesses, residents and government agencies.
“His expertise will help DOKC provide even better benefits to BID members, the various districts, and Downtown residents, employees and visitors,” she said. “He’s a great resource and wealth of knowledge.”
