TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- Officials from Tulsa County, the city of Tulsa and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will meet Wednesday morning for the formal signing of a cost sharing agreement concerning the Arkansas River Corridor Master Plan.

The document signing ceremony will be held at 10:00 a.m. at the Tulsa County Administration Building in downtown Tulsa.

"No one wants to see progress on the river more than I do," said Tulsa County Commissioner Karen Keith. "While the Corps has helped us along the way, signing this agreement really sets us in motion by engaging the Army Corps to get more involved in the project and move toward implementing the master plan."

The Arkansas River Corridor Master Plan calls for appropriate development of the 42 mile Arkansas River corridor in Tulsa County.

Phase I and II concern the study of using additional low water dams along the river and river oriented development.
