Two weeks from Tuesday, we'll decide on the Vision 2025 Plan for Tulsa County. Some people in Broken Arrow don't like the four-part plan and took to the streets near 91st and 161st to show it.
The proposal calls for a one-cent sales tax to fund incentives for Boeing and American Airlines. There's also a new downtown arena and a couple dozen other projects. Former State Representative Don Weese says he wants to know more about who will be in charge of the Vision dollars. â€œItâ€™s going to be governed by an authority, we don't even know yet who's gonna serve on that authority. I tell people â€“ If you like the Turnpike Authority, you'll love this new county-wide authority."
The Vision 2025 vote is scheduled for September 9th.
