TULSA, Okla. - Neighbors living near 61st Street and Peoria Avenue in south Tulsa have a unique opportunity to influence positive changes for the area going forward by voting on a neighborhood identity.
The vote to name the area will start Monday with students at Marshall Elementary. It's part of a two-year grant from the Department of Justice that will give community members the chance to work with city officials and police to improve the area.
Residents will choose from six names on the ballot:
- Mountain View
- Hope Avenue
- Riverwood Square
- Hope Valley
- Riverwood Village
There will also be a line to add a suggestion.
The area of 61st and Peoria is the launching point for the $500,000 DOJ grant.
The U.S. Justice Dept. grant totaled $500,000 and covers the area from 71st to 56th streets and from Riverside Drive to Yorktown Avenue. The purpose of the grant is to increase public safety and quality of life while empowering residents in the area. - City of Tulsa
