The Downtown Coordinating Council Announces Its Walkable Tulsa Study

Aired on Tuesday, April 4th.

How "walkable" is downtown Tulsa? And how could it be made more so? Our guest is Tom Baker, the executive director of Tulsa's Downtown Coordinating Council (or DCC). The DCC is an advisory board made up of downtown property owners, government officials, and business owners, and last month -- in cooperation with various local businesses, organizations, and individuals -- it welcomed the noted urbanist and walkability expert Jeff Speck for a presentation of his recently-completed Walkable Tulsa Study. Some of the topics of this commissioned study -- which you can find at the DCC's website, and which Baker tells us about today -- include street-lane conversion, cycling, practices for developers, trees and sidewalks (and other streetscape aspects), artworks and murals, and parking concerns.
