Tulsa Community College Metro Campus shouldn't have nearly 5 city blocks of surface parking. This area of downtown in so bare because of both TCC's surface parking lots and a few of the church's surface parking lots. TCC should consolidate parking to a multi-level parking structure just south of the main building, the handicap surface parking north of the main campus, and the handicap surface parking by the Nate Waters Physical Therapy Clinic. The other lots should be sold.

I work downtown, and there is not enough parking. Parking garages charge more for monthly parking than surface parking lots. City Council members, the Mayor, and zoning, need to keep in mind that people who work downtown need affordable parking, if it be parking garages or surface parking. Also, those who live downtown need affordable parking. I work at 6th and Boston, but I park at 6th and Elgin. I enjoy the walk, but then there are no transport shuttles to use during inclement weather. I began working downtown in 1992, and the building to the East of the IBM building has been vacant since I began working downtown, I don't know how long it has been vacant. The building was once open to the public for a few days in the early 2000's, and the lobby of course is beautiful art deco, and I don't want it torn down. Tulsa loses vital history and soul when buildings located in downtown are torn down.

Should making downtown Tulsa more walkable be a City priority?
Yes, high priority


Should making downtown Tulsa more bikeable be a City priority?
Yes, high priority


Would it be valuable for the City to repair, resurface, and reconfigure streets, to better support walking and biking?
Other - Yes, as funds needed for this and other City project funds are available and able to be balanced


Describe locations within the IDL (downtown Tulsa) where you see specific impediments to walking. Please identify intersections or landmarks for reference.
Unable to think of specific intersections, but narrower or non-existent sidewalks in some areas can prevent people from wanting to try walking in that area. Also, many parking garage exits can make it a little tough for the slower pedestrian to get across the gap quickly.


Please share your thoughts about how to make downtown more walkable, bikeable, and/or accessible.
Consistent signage, lane widths, paint striping/marking at the majority of downtown intersections, possibly with smart kiosk/stations that can read QR codes from a smart phone for easier location of restaurants, architectural attractions, City Hall, etc. Make it easier, not more difficult to find one's way around. Crosswalks consistently marked with bright, wide white stripes everywhere. Paint is cheap; paint them all in the same phase of a project. The faded-out ones give the impression of being less important or not needing to be adhered to. Parking meter signage needs to be improved, maybe with simple graphics of some sort - very frustrating for someone from out of town to use, and can prevent them from stopping to park longer. Add hardy trees as possible to allow for shade, add bike lanes that are clearly marked as bike lanes. Approach it as if you have not been to Tulsa before (provide lots of wayfinding signs in appropriate places).


Have you read Jeff Speck's Walkability Study draft or seen his March 23rd Tulsa presentation, either in person or via video?

Please share your thoughts about how to make downtown more walkable, bikeable, and/or accessible.
Provide more sidewalks and defined bike routes. There is no separation for bike traffic at all. you are either on the sidewalks with the pedestrians or on the roadway with vehicles that don't observe the traffic signs. Slowing down traffic downtown would help. Going back to two way streets and stop signs would help. If every intersection had a stop sign people would just know they have to stop. Stopping at each intersection will only had a seconds to your travel across downtown if any. With the traffic lights at the corners of 5 lanes of traffic, often motorist don't see the lights and run through the intersection on red. More enforcement would help as well. I see a wreck downtown almost every week. What we have now is not working for vehicles never the less bikes and walkers. Let's try something else to make downtown safer for all of us.


Have you read Jeff Speck's Walkability Study draft or seen his March 23rd Tulsa presentation, either in person or via video?
Yes


On a scale of 1-5, rate the following techniques to make streets safer for all users in terms of importance to you. (1=not important, 5=very important)



Should the City invest in making The Loop (formerly Downtown Trolley) a downtown circulator with greater hours and increased frequency?
Unsure


Should the City pursue a Walk Your City campaign?
Yes


Should the City adopt a one-page downtown zoning overlay like the one proposed in this study?
Yes


Should the City make investments to support more downtown sidewalk dining options?
Yes


Should the City make investments to attract more people to live downtown?
Yes


Further comments? If you agree or disagree on any aspects of the Study, please share!
The younger generations are less about driving and more about walking. Downtown living is a good fit for people that don't like to drive and want to walk or bike to work. Giving people of all ages the option to live, work and play downtown will only make Tulsa a more appealing place to live. Downtown has changed so much in the past 10 years, for the better. Some weekends you can't find a place to park north of the railroad tracks. With downtown changing we need to provide the infrastructural to keep Tulsa growing.
