TULSA — Three "Improve Our Tulsa" public meetings are scheduled for later this month across the city.

At the meetings, there will be comments on the revised proposal for the renewal of Improve Our Tulsa, the City's basic streets and infrastructure program.

Mayor G.T. Bynum and Tulsa City Councilors will give an overview of the latest proposals as a part of the project.

All meetings will begin at 6 p.m. and Spanish translators will be available at each meeting. The dates and locations are as follows:

• Thursday, July 25, Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma, 4810 S. 129th East Ave.
• Monday, July 29, Memorial High School, 5840 S. Hudson Ave.
• Tuesday, July 30, Booker T. Washington High School, 1514 E. Zion St.

After the three meetings, the City Council is set to vote on an ordinance in August which will call for a vote on Nov. 12 for Improve Our Tulsa.

The draft proposal for the renewal would run for about six and a half years and total $639 million. Seventy percent of the funding would go to street maintenance and transportation costs, including sidewalks and bridge maintenance. The remaining amount would be divided into categories to fund public facility repairs, parks improvements, public safety and vehicle replacements and create a standing rainy-day fund allocation.
