TULSA, Okla. - The Route 66 Commission is looking to limit the used car lots along the historic Mother Road that runs through midtown Tulsa.
The commission says they are planning to write a letter of support to Tulsa City Council and its planning commission to limit any new car-related businesses from opening along 11th Street. They say the collection of businesses do not encourage tourism and economic growth.
The commission says there are 59 car-related businesses in the area within a four-mile stretch.
They say they are not trying to force those businesses out, but want to limit additional ones from starting in the area.
Any action taken will be up to City Council.
