According to the improve our Tulsa website, after following two years of planning and eight public meetings across the city, three ballot proposals will head to Tulsa residents for a November 12 vote to fund Improve Our Tulsa, the city’s basic streets and infrastructure program.

  • Two thirds of the funding is dedicated to street maintenance and transportation costs
  • Modern resources for police and fire
  • Improved ADA compliance

“The City Council and I worked together through a very deliberative process to develop this program. I am grateful for all our fellow Tulsans who made their voices heard every step of the way. They told us they want better streets, so this program is overwhelmingly focused on street improvements. The balance is for things like fire trucks and police cars and safe playground equipment for kids. This is a very basic, but very important, infrastructure program that will help us build the Tulsa we want without raising our taxes.”

Mayor G.T. Bynum
