2017 Council Meeting Schedule

Thursday, February 9 - North Tulsa Grocery Store Bus Tour

Councilor Hall-Harper will host a North Tulsa Grocery Store Bus Tour for district 1 residents on Thursday, Feb. 9, to visit the Save-A-Lot grocery store in west Tulsa in an effort to address the lack of food security in north Tulsa. Participants will meet at the North Pointe Business Center at the corner of E. Pine St. and M.L.K. Jr. Blvd. at 6 p.m. The tour will then depart at approximately 6:30 p.m. for the Save-A-Lot grocery store in west Tulsa, 4229 Southwest Blvd.

"Because of the subpar Save-A-Lot store on Pine and Lewis, there are many citizens in my district that have a poor perception of the Save-A-Lot brand," Councilor Hall-Harper said. "I am hosting this bus tour in an effort to educate the community about the quality of the store in west Tulsa and to inform residents that if the brand opens a new store in north Tulsa, it will have the same owners."

The west Tulsa Save-A-Lot store is owned and operated by Honor Capital, a veteran-owned business that opens grocery stores in underserved communities or "food deserts."
Residents will have the opportunity to see how the west Tulsa store is managed and have questions answered by the owners.

Wednesday, February 22 - Next City Council Meeting

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the Council Chamber on the second floor of City Hall, 175 E. 2nd St.
