OKC 49th in Sustainlane's 2008 US Cities Rankings

While the city is trying to improve in a few key areas, the metro area still has a long way to go in becoming a leader in sustainability. In fact, Oklahoma City finished 49th out of 50 with Tulsa ranking an overall 48th in the nation. Sustainlane's rankings explain how people's quality of life and city economic and management preparedness are likely to fare in the face of an uncertain future. Oklahoma City fared well in water quality, affordable housing, and metro street congestion while doing poorly in the areas of solid waste diversion, planning and land use, metro ridership, local food and agriculture among others.
