Louisville leaders travel to OKC for revitalization ideas

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (WAVE) – Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and dozens of local business leaders have traveled to Oklahoma City to try to figure out how the Derby City can revitalize itself and whether an NBA team might help.

Oklahoma City is a metropolitan area that is similar in size to Louisville. It has been home to the NBA franchise the Oklahoma City Thunder since 2008.

"The NBA is just one of a dozen things we're talking about down here," said Fischer. "They've done wonderful things with their school system. We've learned a lot about historic preservations."

The trip was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.
