Envisioning North Tulsa’s Future Together
After more than 40 community meetings and events, connecting with 1,000 residents and 12 months of community-led planning, the 188-page Kirkpatrick Heights & Greenwood Master plan was recently approved by the Tulsa City Council. The plan provides strategies for the equitable and inclusive mixed-use of 56 acres of publicly owned land just north of downtown Tulsa.
The project is now moving into the implementation phase, and next steps include establishing a technical working committee and community-led governance model, as well as identifying additional funding sources. The renewed vision for North Tulsa places ownership and governance with Greenwood stakeholders and leaders, and incorporates housing, retail, community gathering spaces, greenspace and infrastructure to improve mobility and connectivity throughout the plan area. The full plan can be viewed here.
Here are a few of our favorite headlines on the project:
