Community meeting

City of Tulsa hosts community meeting for Evans-Fintube redevelopment proposals

The City of Tulsa and the Tulsa Authority for Economic Opportunity are giving the community a chance to share their feedback on the redevelopment of a historic property near downtown.

The city is looking to create what it calls a “mixed-use destination project” at the Evans-Fintube site.

The 11-acre property sits just northeast of downtown, on the eastern edge of historic Greenwood, and is adjacent to the future US BMX National Headquarters. It includes the Oklahoma Ironworks building, which is a 120,000 square foot former industrial facility listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The city said it hopes the project will enhance the region’s history and cultural diversity, strengthen community engagement, create economic initiatives, and develop destination retail and entertainment spaces to generate wealth for community members in North Tulsa.

The city said it has four teams on its shortlist of potential developers who will be part of a three-month community engagement and proposal design process.

Thursday night, Tulsans will have the opportunity to meet with these teams to learn more about their ideas and provide feedback. The meeting will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the 36th Street North Event Center located at 1125 East 36th Street North.

The city also offers an option for those who wish to attend virtually. You can register for the virtual meeting by clicking here. https://zoom.us/…/tJEucOCqqzooG91TkgOjWhBguA7bppOugSIM
