Meetings on Equality Indicators to Start in Mid-May

 

The Tulsa City Council is working on scheduling dates for public meetings on the City of Tulsa's 2018 and 2019 Equality Indicator Reports starting in mid-May.

The Council voted unanimously at its March 13 meeting to hold four public meetings, one each month, for four months. Councilors will work with staff to select the best dates to hold these special meetings, which will immediately follow abbreviated, regular Wednesday 5 p.m. Council meetings.

The final schedule will take into consideration the convenience to the public, the Councilors' prior commitments and the need to avoid interference with time-sensitive business of the City.

For each meeting, the Council will hear from and ask questions of panelists of experts and professionals from a variety of fields. Public input on questions and issues the Councilors should address to each panel will be received from the public at the regular Wednesday Council meetings held a week prior to each of the special meetings.

Each special meeting will focus on the following selected equality indicators:

. May: racial and gender disparities in police arrests of adults

. June: racial and gender disparities in police arrests of juveniles

. July: racial disparities in police use of force and current practices to improve outcomes

. August: minority and gender underrepresentation in the police department and current practices to improve recruitment and retention of minority officers

Town Hall Meetings Scheduled for Improve Our Tulsa Renewal

 

Five citywide town hall meetings have been scheduled for presentations, citizens' questions and comments about the Improve Our Tulsa renewal, scheduled for a vote on Nov. 12.

"Improve Our Tulsa is our basic streets and infrastructure program, and because of voter support for it in 2013 we've made critical progress in rehabilitating our roads after decades of neglect - but there is much more work to do," Mayor G.T. Bynum said. "In order to continue making progress, we need to renew this program that funds not just street work but also police cars, fire trucks, snow plows, our parks, and so much more. The Tulsa City Council and I will host town hall meetings citywide to visit with our fellow Tulsans about the priorities we as a community want to set. We hope all Tulsans will join us to discuss the essential needs of our city."

In 2018, the City of Tulsa conducted the Gallup-Tulsa Citivoice Index to assess quality of life and civic engagement among residents. Most citizens responding in this survey said that Tulsa's roads rank as a top priority for improvement.

Improve Our Tulsa town hall meetings all will begin at 6 p.m. The dates and locations are as follows:

  • Tuesday, April 9 - Hardesty Regional Library Frossard Auditorium, 8316 E. 93rd St.
  • Tuesday, April 16 - Lewis and Clark Elementary School Auditorium, 737 S. Garnett Road (Spanish language interpreters will be available at this meeting.)
  • Tuesday, April 30 - Booker T. Washington High School Auditorium, 1514 E. Zion St.
  • Tuesday, May 7 - Jewish Federation of Tulsa Sylvan Auditorium, 2021 E.71st St.
  • Monday, May 13 - OU-Tulsa Schusterman Learning Center Perkins Auditorium, 4502 E. 41stSt.

"Tulsa has vital, core components, which we all use and collectively fund: our neighborhood and major streets; the equipment that's used to spread salt or rush to calls for help; the facilities where kids play, employees work, and treasured works of art are displayed," City Council Chairman Phil Lakin said. "Renewing Improve Our Tulsa is essential in maintaining these basic, yet critical, elements of our City, to improve our quality of life and allow Tulsa to continue to grow and thrive. I encourage folks to come to our public meetings and help us prioritize how we invest our funds to better our Tulsa."

In the years since Tulsa voters approved the first Improve Our Tulsa capital improvements package, the City of Tulsa has been working diligently to complete those projects.

Improve Our Tulsa progress includes the following:

  • Twenty-two neighborhood street rehabilitation projects and 11 arterial street rehabilitation projects are completed, with 13 projects currently under construction. The rest of the projects are in various stages of design.
  • The largest Improve Our Tulsa street project completed so far is Riverside Drive between 24thStreet and 33rd Place. Also completed are nearby rehabilitation projects on East 31st Street between Riverside Drive and Peoria Avenue, and on Riverside between Joe Creek and 81stStreet.
  • Other completed projects include North Mingo Road, East 36th Street to East 46th Street; the North Mingo Road and East 46th Street intersection; East 51st Street, South Sheridan Road to South Memorial Drive; the East 61st Street and South Sheridan Road intersection, and South Sheridan Road, East 81st Street to East 91st Street.
  • Some non-street projects completed include the new Lost Kingdom exhibit at Tulsa Zoo, new playgrounds at Lacy Park and Hunter Park, and the new McClure Park pool.

Tulsans can also provide feedback about Improve Our Tulsa by responding to survey questions on Feedback Tulsa -  www.feedbacktulsa.org Leading up to the town hall meetings, citizens can get more information about Improve Our Tulsa and the upcoming meetings at  www.improveourtulsa.com
