TULSA - The final public meeting seeking input on a multimillion dollar proposed tax extension is Friday evening.
Vision2 is a $748 million extension of Vision2025 that would, among other things, give companies incentives to relocate to Tulsa.
Under Vision2025, taxpayers pay an additional 0.6 percent on sales taxes. If Vision2 is passed the tax would continue until 2029.
If voters approve Vision2, half of the $748 million will go toward improving city-owned buildings near the airport.
The rest would be determined by the public.
Community interest in Vision2 is growing. So far, Tulsans have expressed support for river improvements. Others want to see upgrades to parks and pedestrian and bike trails.
The Tulsa Zoo staff is aiming at a portion of the money for rennovations and upgrades, which they say could improve attendance.
The city is expected to have a plan for the money in place by mid-September.
Friday's public forum is at the ORU Mabee Center at 5:30 p.m.
Voters will cast their ballots on Vision2 in November.
