Please share your thoughts on the PLANiTULSA process, including ways to expand community engagement and participation.
Keep active, producing videos is good but creating engagement through social media is better. People care about the city they live in but they are not certain what they can do beyond raising awareness of issues

Connection to walking trails via Tulsa Transit would be a good start, I believe. Hoping when the Gathering Place is complete, that public transportation will be available to reach this great park!

For my district, Reed park is a local treasure. The community center there provides great options to exercise. Maintaining or expanding this center could be an option. Maybe pave the current gravel walking trails in the park? :) And definitely keep Reed pool open. It is a staple every summer for my kids.

Tulsa has a vibrant community of mental health professionals. Family and Children's services comes to mind. We should partner with this and other MH orgs to coordinate care for those with less resources. i.e. habitual inmates with mental health issues, the poor, etc. Investment in mental health now could save money in the future and produce productive and happy citizens, instead of inmates or homelessness.

I'm not a financial whiz, so I'll leave this one to the experts. But, of course, jobs are key. I know Goodwill does good work helping those with employment issues. One thing that comes to mind is a person that has a felony record has a nearly impossible time finding a job.

I believe we're doing a great job already! However, for citizens like me many options are out of reach due to high prices, i.e. BOK center events, Tulsa PAC, etc. BUT the Guthrie Green is a favorite of mine, as it is free. Please consider more free/low cost options like Guthrie green.

Walkability is key. Clear street markings like pedestrian crosswalks, bike lanes, median paint, etc. Many of our streets have faded pedestrian zone paint, or none at all. This, of course, coincides with safe, clean sidewalks!

First off, no bail and no jail time for minor, non-violent drug offenses. Jailing citizens for minor infractions like this only builds resentment toward law enforcement. The mayor's idea for a "dry" house for those arrested for public drunk or other minor, non-violent offenses is a good direction.

I would enjoy having town-hall style meetings with my local LEO's. Regular meetings at Zarrow library for my part of town would be great. I would attend.

I'm speaking for the Redfork area. Tulsa Transit recently removed route 118 and replaced it with a very inefficient circular route. I rode route 118 daily for many, many years for work, getting to downtown, shopping, etc. To this day I cannot understand the logic of changing this route. My fellow riders and neighbors were very upset about this. I recommend that this route be reinstated, and in the future move carefully forward while expanding service without having proper funding. i.e. this route was removed because of the money needed for the Peoria project and expanded Sunday service. This move disrupted many lives in the Redfork area!

I live in midtown and would like to see wider sidewalks that have more separation from traffic on the arterial streets. I realize this may be difficult with existing infrastructure. But I imagine what the neighborhoods around me could be like if we could walk within a square mile or so without feeling endangered by vehicular traffic. Downtown already has made progress in walkability, and that could happen for neighborhoods. I want to feel okay about walking to the grocery or a drugstore just a half mile (up 15th street) from my neighborhood. As it is, I drive because the route is not very pedestrian friendly.

Being able to incorporate walking into daily routines is vital to physical health. If more attention is given to sidewalks as routes to services, more will use them. We live in a rather compact area here with all kinds of medical and shopping options within walking distance.

Better discipline. too many students disrespect teachers and disrupt classes. A teacher cannot teach when she is always correcting unruly students.

Make sure Tech schools offer training in areas that companies need employees.

DO NOT SELL ANY MORE OF OUR RIVERSIDE FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT. they have the whole city to build for retail... The riverside should be for the whole city to enjoy with parks, etc. The people inside the casino could care less that there is a river behind them - but their enormous building and parking lots prevent others from seeing
the river.

If they are art deco definitely save them!!!!! if they have historical status save them... if they are just common useless buildings then demolish or rebuild...

There is a lot to do and see in Tulsa, but it seems difficult to find all the activities, as they are not listed in one place. A single website for everything would be helpful. Not just a site for the PAC, or another site for the BOK, or another site for Guthrie Green etc.
