Making (and Re-Making) Plans for North Tulsa: The Unity Heritage Neighborhoods Design Workshop
On this edition of ST, we learn about the Unity Heritage Neighborhoods Design Workshop, a program to create designs, plans, and visions for future development in neighborhoods immediately north of downtown Tulsa. These include the Brady Heights Historic District, Emerson Elementary, Greenwood, and the Evans-Fintube site. Throughout the fall, the Notre Dame University Graduate Design Studio has been viewing the landscape and speaking with community stakeholders on how they want the neighborhood to look and feel as they develop their design ideas. Our guests include Jennifer Griffin, an architect and urban designer (and the principal of J Griffin Design) who's working with the Notre Dame urban design students, and Clarence Boyd, whose nonprofit Coalescent Community Development Corporation works to improve both quality of life and economic opportunity in North Tulsa. Please note that the Unity Heritage Neighborhoods Design Workshop will offer its free-to-the-public Final Design Presentation on Friday, December 8th. The event will begin at 6pm at the Greenwood Cultural Center (322 N. Greenwood Avenue).
