Message From Mayor Dewey Bartlett

My fellow Tulsans,

We have begun another capital improvements program for at least the next seven years to continue fixing streets and to provide for other citywide needs. When the Fix Our Streets projects were approved in 2008, the City of Tulsa promised accountability through results, to earn citizens’ trust for renewal of funding five years later.

In November 2013, Tulsa voters approved an investment of $918.7 million from the Third Penny Sales Tax and General Obligation Bonds for more than 300 projects to improve streets and many other City of Tulsa services. Compared to the $451.6 million for Fix Our Streets projects, 2013’s Improve Our Tulsa provides nearly $625 million for street projects, plus more than $293 million for other citywide needs.

We are updating equipment for the police and fire departments, replacing outdated information technology systems, planning for economic development, and making improvements at public facilities including more than 30 neighborhood parks, Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa Performing Arts Center, Tulsa Zoo, River Parks, Animal Welfare Shelter, and the Central Library.

Through the pages of this website, we will offer updates on our capital improvements, and we will advertise our public meetings. Check back frequently.

Best regards,
Mayor Dewey F. Bartlett Jr.
