Great that I do not have to drive more than a mile to see a collection of the City trees...the orange barrels! A sign that, in Tulsa, progress is always on the way...just never gets here 'cause the streets are either closed or too rough.

While there are many things about Tulsa that we all like there must be things that we think need to be changed in order to make Tulsa better. If we don't address those as well we will never be the best we can be! Lets open up this web site for those suggestions as well.

Thank you Tulsa! What a beautiful place to grow up. I have a few favorite places in town that I love to go to...
First. I have to mention La Villa Restaurant At Philbrook Museum! What a cool place to go for lunch!
2727 S Rockford Rd Tulsa, OK 74114 (918) 748-5367
I love the Sunday Brunch on the Patio overlooking the beautiful Philbrook Museam Gardens.
Second. My favorite Home is 8000 S. Jamestown Ave. in Tulsa. What a beautiful home and one that I would love to live in! I often drive by the house to admire the most beautiful view of Tulsa, overlooking Oral Roberts University with views to Downtown!
Third. I'm proud that our city worked with the Corp of Engineers to prevent flooding in Tulsa. When I grew up our house flooded quite often from Mingo Creek across the street. Making the Drainage Retention Ponds was a brilliant solution to a nasty problem.

Brady Heights Historic District, just north of downtown (and the jail, ugh) is a fabulous old neighborhood with sidewalks, porches, and nice people. Mostly residential with a bit of commercial and churches makes it interesting. There are some components that are run down such as the streets and vacant lots. Being considered north Tulsa the area has been neglected and needs additional attention from the City as well as reinvestment to compliment the existing assests.

I work downtown and currently live in south Tulsa but, as an ex-resident of Owen Park, and a past president of the homeowners association, I am interested in all businesses and venues in the downtown area. I lived adjacent to downtown for 15 years and have worked downtown for over 20 years. I watched the growth and improvement of the Brady Arts District, the Blue Dome District and the construction of the BOK Center.I am particularly interested in the various music venues and the recent increase in small owner-proprietor businesses downtown.
I am interested in anything and everything that will continue to foster growth and prosperity in the downtown area.

The Trail System that connects our city is one of the best things about living in Tulsa. With the recent upgrades in place, the River Trails and the Midland Valley Trails are really beautiful and it's great seeing people enjoying them on nice days. I also like watching authentic neighborhoods flourish - particularly the Brady district, the Blue Dome area, the Pearl and the 18th & Boston areas. I'm definitely looking forward to more mixed-use neighborhoods emerge over the next several years - complete with locally sanctioned housing, shops and restaurants.

Yes these are ALL my favorites! Tulsa is exceptional!
