In 2014, the Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City established the Northeast Renaissance Steering Committee (NERSC) as an ad-hoc group of community stakeholders seeded to represent the NE community’s voice while vetting Northeast Renaissance development efforts. The NERSC’s mission was to advocate for ethical redevelopment considerate of housing, education, safety, wellness, economic development, and preservation of African American arts & culture.
In 2016 the NERSC leadership established Northeast OKC Renaissance Inc., (NEOKCR), to improve the quality of life for the residents of Northeast Oklahoma City as a catalyst for economic prosperity and preserver of cultural traditions.
