continue our vision

Tulsa County

Tulsa County has a proposition on the April 5 ballot, seeking a renewal of 0.05 percent to pay for roads and levees, parks projects, and buildings/capital improvements.

The following comprehensive list of projects, totaling $75 million, was developed among direct requests from Tulsa County residents and with further evaluation from County staff and Tulsa County Commissioners. These four primary areas of focus include:

 

INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS     

Tulsa County maintains more than 700 miles of road and nearly 200 bridges. These major transportation thoroughfares are the backbone of neighborhoods, business and education areas. Within the Tulsa County limits, every municipality benefits from the capital investments made in the Tulsa County Maintenance Master Plan. Infrastructure improvements include dozens of miles of levees protecting vital homesteads and industrial areas along the Arkansas River. Improvements to these levee systems are critical to public safety.

$65 million
($55 million – County .05% Renewal Package/$10 million in Vision 2025 excess)

 

TULSA COUNTY PARKS IMPROVEMENTS

Tulsa County Parks are among the finest and largest parks in the Tulsa region. On average, the parks receive approximately 1.5 million times per year, and thus need capital improvements to meet an ever-growing demand. The County’s ability to service these visitors is hinged on having the capital dollars necessary to maintain and create public spaces that promote healthy lifestyles for children and adults.

$14 million
($10 million – County .05%/$4 million in Vision 2025 excess)

 

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

The county has long struggled with antiquated space in buildings and enough parking to accommodate the thousands of people who use the court house. Solving these long-standing issues will allow the county to operate in a more efficient fashion and serve the public’s need for ease while navigating our facilities.

$14 million
