Tulsa's Vision leadership committee has finalized its list for the first phase of improvements. The $885-million plan has attractions, improvements, and business incentives.

Officials say the ballot will have four issues - the first, $350 million for Boeing.

The second is $22-million for American Airlines.

The third is $350-million for higher education, healthcare, the convention center and arena, and Expo Square.

The fourth will be $157-million for community centers, the river, the aquarium and other attractions.

Included in the package is a sales tax rebate for senior citizens, that will cost about $5-million.

All of the projects will require a penny sales tax for 13 years, but if any of them fail - the tax would be less.

Tulsa County Commissioners will set the election day, which is planned for September 9th.
