TULSA — The Mayor's Office of Economic Development presented the Mayor's Economic Recovery Advisory Committee's final recommendations to the Tulsa City Council.
Officials proposed both short-term and long-term economic recovery recommendations due to the impacts in Tulsa of the coronavirus pandemic.
The committee, which formed in April, worked with the expertise and experience of Tulsa's biggest industry, employers, and community leaders to guide the recommendations for economic recovery in the city.
When the Tulsa Regional Chamber and I established this committee, our primary hope was for this kind of roadmap to revitalize Tulsa’s economy. I am eager to work with my fellow Tulsans in following through on these recommendations, so our city can emerge stronger and more resilient from one of the greatest economic challenges in its history.
Three subcommittees were utilized by the committee, highlighting current actions along with short-term and long-term priorities to drive economic growth in the city.
"As area companies recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, these recommendations will help guide our efforts to support Tulsa's business community and ensure northeast Oklahoma's long-term economic competitiveness," said Mike Neal, president and CEO of the Tulsa Regional Chamber. "Our community has demonstrated incredible resilience during the past three months, and it has been an honor for us at the Chamber to co-lead this committee with Mayor Bynum. I applaud the leadership of the two-dozen committee members and their commitment to regional economic prosperity."
Officials are requesting citizen feedback to help prioritize the recommendations, if anyone is interested in providing feedback, they can complete this survey.
