TULSA COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Vision Tulsa is a tax proposition that totals nearly $885 million, but it's broken down into three parts so you can vote on them separately.

The first part is public safety. About $270 million would be directed to public safety - $202 million to police, $70 million to fire.

The money would pay for hiring 160 new police officers and 65 new firefighters.

The second proposition is transportation, totaling $102 million. That money would fund two new bus transit routes, a downtown Tulsa loop, a midtown loop and more.

The third proposition of economic development is the most cumbersome, coming in at $510 million.

A large part of the proposition would develop the Arkansas River, adding public access to the river, preserving trails and recreation areas, modifying the Zink Dam and building a new low-water dam in Jenks.

Tulsa County voters can cast ballots for Vision Tulsa.

The propositions would not raise taxes, but would extend the already existing Vision 2025 sales tax.
