Sand Springs - Sand Springs residents are being left to decide how they will spend their share of the Vision 2 funds if the tax extension is approved in November.
The city will get roughly $10 Million dollars if Vision 2025 is extended until 2029.
City Manager Rocky Rogers said the city has been hosting a series of public hearings in hopes of getting as much input as possible.
"We’re not here to tell you how to vote or what to vote that’s not our job," he said. "We are here to give you information and you make the decision on whether you want vote for this or not."
Rogers said adding parks and trails are at the top of the list for residents who want to see their quality of life improve. In addition, he said other ideas include investing in the Gilcrease Expressway to provide access to the river and create a heavy haul corridor.
Sand Springs will host its last public hearing on September 18th at the Old Central Elementary School building from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Staff will then put together a plan for the city to be voted on by city council by the end of October.
Tulsa County residents will have the opportunity to vote on Vision2 in November.
