"Although the motion to dismiss was granted, the City of Tulsa continues to meet with interested parties about the future of the Tulsa Parks system. The current estimate for repairs to B.C. Franklin Recreation Center alone, is approximately $1.6 million in today's dollars, which does not include costs for ongoing operations. The City of Tulsa continues to look to the 2010 Tulsa Park Master Plan as a guideline to meet the needs of current and future residents by positioning Tulsa to sustain and improve the community's vast and unique parks and recreation assets. The citizen-driven Tulsa Parks Master Plan establishes a clear direction to guide city staff, advisory committees and elected officials in their efforts to enhance the community's parks and recreation services and facilities. Mayor Bartlett has stated that he would like to see Tulsa Parks included in the resolution for Vision2 quality of life projects that Tulsa County voters would have the opportunity to vote for on Nov.6."
The recreation center has been rundown and sat unused for years, but the group hoped the lawsuit would force the city to reopen it.
The group of citizens is deciding whether or not to appeal.
