TULSA - Tulsans have their first chance to voice their opinions on the multimillion dollar Vision2 proposal.
The first of five public forums is scheduled Monday evening at Webster High School from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Vision2 , expected to cost about $748 million, is an extension of Vision2025 , which produced the BOK Center.
The Vision2 proposal would give companies incentives to relocate in Tulsa, give surrounding communities money for projects and give money to city-owned buildings for upgrades. Under Vision2 , American Airlines, Spirit Aero and IC Bus would all be up for renovation.
If voters approve Vision2 in November, half of the $748 million will go toward improving city-owned buildings near the airport.
The rest would be determined by the public, which is where Monday's meeting comes in to play.
With a potential extension, the city of Tulsa must identify projects for inclusion in the new Vision2 program.
After the public meetings, a resolution will be created comprised of projects Tulsa will pursue with Vision2 funds. If voters approve Vision2, the city of Tulsa will gain financing for projects outlined in the city resolution.
While each project will vary on completion time, all Vision2 initiatives set forth by citizens would be complete by 2029.
