The City of Tulsa wants area residents, property owners and other stakeholders in three areas of Tulsa to participate in a visioning workshop on Sept. 8, 2012.
The workshop will begin at City Hall at One Technology Center, 175 E. 2nd St., in the second-floor City Council chamber. All participants will take part in a joint session in Council chambers followed by individual breakout sessions for discussion of the three separate small area plans.
The three areas are:
•36th Street North Corridor
•West Highlands/Tulsa Hills
•Utica Midtown Corridor (South Portion)
Exact boundaries of each of the three small plan areas, as well as the workshop schedule, can be viewed online at: http://www.planitulsa.org/smallareaplans
The City of Tulsa’s Planning Division staff has already met with stakeholders in all three areas to hear public concerns. They have drafted reports on each area’s physical, social, demographic, historical and other characteristics. A Citizen Advisory Team (CAT) has participated in the planning process in each area.
Residents of each area are invited to attend the visioning workshop to share their ideas for the futures of their respective areas. Citizen input will shape recommendations within each plan, which will be presented for adoption by the Tulsa Metropolitan Area Planning Commission in early 2013.
Urban design professionals from the Eastern Oklahoma Chapter of the American Institute of Architects will aid participants in developing visions for each area.
Metered street parking is free on Saturdays in downtown Tulsa. Parking in the lot at 2nd and South Cincinnati is available for $5 for the day.
Security measures will be in place for the workshop at City Hall.
Anyone planning to attend is asked to reserve a spot by e-mailing email@example.com or by calling (918) 576-5684. Participants are asked to state for which plan area they will attend.
