The City of Tulsa is hosting a series of community meetings to develop a master plan for Kirkpatrick Heights, a piece of mostly empty land just North of downtown.
The planning area is larger, encompassing part of downtown, and Greenwood, but the focus is on 56 acres available for development. The City is asking for input on how to develop a mixed-use project incorporating housing for various income levels, mass transit, recreation, and retail. Improvements on the property will be partially funded with taxes created by the new development.
The next public meeting is Saturday from 12-2 pm at the 36th Street North Event Center
Ashley Philippsen, a member of the Leadership Committee on the project, said "People are going to know what and why behind this process and in turn, we'll hear the how people expect to be engaged and what they can expect from this land development."
The planning will cover much of the green space, and open land, around the OSU Tulsa Campus, and just north of Standpipe Hill.
Kian Kamas, with the development arm of the City of Tulsa, said “As we go through this year-long master planning process I think you'll see us coming back to the residents and saying this is what we think we heard, did we hear that right?"
Meeting goals include:
Each meeting will be divided into two parts:
PART 1: Welcome & Introductions
PART 2: Brief Presentation, Initial Findings
75 minutes (OPEN HOUSE / INTERACTIVE)
(Saturday session will be entirely Open House format / drop-in)
