Public Forum On Tulsa Parks Master Plan Slated

altThe public will have a chance to comment on the Tulsa Parks Master Plan during a meeting Tuesday, Sept. 29.

The forum will be from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Central Center at Centennial Park, 1028 E. 6th St.

“Our parks and green spaces contribute greatly to the quality of life in Tulsa,” said Mayor Kathy Taylor. “This is your chance to talk about what you would like to see, both in your neighborhood park and in parks throughout Tulsa, as well as to comment on the developing Parks and Recreation Master Plan.”

The meeting will include feedback and input from the public. There also will be a brief update on the current Master Plan status and highlights. Information will be collected by  Pat Treadway, retired director of the City of Tulsa Planning Department and now working with Land Legacy.

GreenPlay LLC, the consulting firm hired with private dollars to create the plan for the city, presented the results of preliminary research for the Master Plan at a similar forum in July. Research included focus groups, user groups, and community surveys accessed via mail and on-line.

Members of the Core Project Team for the Parks Master Plan include: Chair Margie Warren and Co-chair Jamie Zink; Susan Neal, Director of Community Development and Education, City of Tulsa; Dale McNamara, Chairperson, City of Tulsa Recreation and Park Board; Lucy Dolman, interim Director of  the Park and Recreation Department; Phil Lakin; and Pat Treadway.
