PLANiTULSA Final Comments

PLANiTULSA will present a final draft of its comprehensive planning document on Tuesday, January 19. The presentation begins at 6pm at the Central Center at Centennial Park, 1028 E. 6th St.

You can read chapters of the draft plan, which include land use, transportation, economic development, housing, and parks and open space, at www.planitulsa.org.

Audience members will be able to express their opinions throughout the presentation using “clickers.” It’ll be just like sitting at home on a Tuesday night, except you won’t be able to change the channel!

Yesterday evening, PLANiTulsa officially released a draft of  Tulsa’s vision and planning for the future. As many of you are aware, Tulsans have spent the last year attending planning sessions through PLANiTulsa and helping to guide and provide input towards Tulsa’s future. Micah and I have written past blogs on the subject which I encourage you to read if you click on the Planitulsa tag.

To download the report go to http://www.planitulsa.org/. There will also be a presentation of the plan at an open house. See below. Hope to see you there! You can’t afford not to care.

If you haven’t already reviewed the PLANiTULSA scenarios and submitted the short feedback survey, then you’re doing a serious disservice to the city you call home. The deadline to participate is TOMORROW, June 18.

Seriously, this is your chance to register your vision for our future before who-knows-what will happen in the hands of the City Council.

The scenarios are these:

  • Scenario A: Trends Continue. If you like the way Tulsa has grown the past 20 years, this one’s for you. 83% of population growth goes to the ‘burbs.
  • Scenario B: Main Streets. Existing communities benefit from new development and transit investments, especially along 11th Street, Harvard, Yale, and Peoria.
  • Scenario C: New Centers. New hubs of jobs and housing concentrated around downtown, North Peoria, Southwest Tulsa, and East Tulsa. Lots of new development happens in previously neglected areas of Tulsa, but a lot of it is “green field” or open land development rather than infill or re-development.
  • Scenario D:  Centered City. Transit and housing investments concentrate on downtown and inner-midtown. The objective is to create a much denser center city.

Get to it!

Did you know?


Tulsa has more parking lots – statistically – than any other city that the planning firm Fregonese Associates has ever worked with. The company is facilitating the PLANiTULSA comprehensive planning initiative.

Speaking of which, you’re running out of opportunities to participate in PLANiTULSA if you haven’t already. The small area workshops are a chance to really define what you want that neighborhood to look like in the next 30 years – from the size of the parks to the types of housing and more. Just three remain:

  • Forest Orchard / Hillcrest – February 18 (tonight), 6-9pm at First Evangelical Lutheran Church. 1244 S Utica Ave. Register online here.
  • University of Tulsa / Kendall-Whittier – February 23, 6-9pm at Kendall-Whittier Elementary School. 2601 E 5th Pl. Register here.
  • Southcrest Hospital area (91st & Mingo) – February 23, 6-9pm at Union Public Schools Educational Service Center. 8506 E. 61st St. Register here.

If you’re tired of hopping in your car every morning and hitting the BA, there’s also a city-wide transportation planning workshop February 24 from 6-9pm at the Centennial Park community center. 1028 E 6th St. Register here. If you know anyone who rides the bus in Tulsa, PLEASE encourage them to attend. There’s never enough transit users at these events.
