Three more public meetings have been scheduled to receive comments on a revised proposal for the renewal of Improve Our Tulsa, which includes changes from Tulsa residents’ comments that were received at five public meetings held in the spring, and further discussions with City departments.

 

The next three meetings all will begin at 6 p.m. and Spanish translators will be available at each meeting. The dates and locations are as follows:

• Thursday, July 25, Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma, 4810 S. 129th East Ave.

• Monday, July 29, Memorial High School, 5840 S. Hudson Ave.

• Tuesday, July 30, Booker T. Washington High School, 1514 E. Zion St.

 

After the three public meetings, the City Council is scheduled to vote on an ordinance in August which will call for a vote on Nov. 12 for Improve Our Tulsa., the City’s basic streets and infrastructure program. 

 

“Because of voter support for Improve Our Tulsa in 2013, we’ve made critical progress in rehabilitating our roads after decades of neglect, but there is much more work to do,” Mayor G.T. Bynum said. “In order to continue making progress, we need to renew this program that funds not just our basic street and infrastructure work, but also police cars, fire trucks, our parks, and so much more.”
