Mejorar nuestra Tulsa

Luego de dos años de planificación y ocho reuniones públicas en toda la ciudad, los residentes de Tulsa votaron para financiar el programa de infraestructura y calles básicas de la Ciudad, Mejorar Nuestra Tulsa, el 12 de noviembre de 2019.

Sobre

El programa incluye fondos para calles y sistemas de transporte de la Ciudad identificados; proyectos de capital que incluyen reparaciones de instalaciones públicas, mejoras de parques, seguridad pública y reemplazo de vehículos, entre otras necesidades de capital; y crea una asignación permanente de fondos Rainy Day, que podría usarse en caso de una recesión económica. 

“El Concejo Municipal y yo trabajamos juntos a través de un proceso muy deliberativo para desarrollar este programa. Estoy agradecido por todos nuestros compañeros de Tulsan que hicieron oír sus voces en cada paso del camino. Nos dijeron que quieren mejores calles, por lo que este programa se centra abrumadoramente en las mejoras de las calles. El resto es para cosas como camiones de bomberos y coches de policía y juegos infantiles seguros. Este es un programa de infraestructura muy básico, pero muy importante, que nos ayudará a construir la Tulsa que queremos sin aumentar nuestros impuestos”, dijo el alcalde GT Bynum.

La renovación de Improve Our Tulsa duraría seis años y medio y totalizaría $639 millones; El 70 por ciento de los fondos se dedica al mantenimiento de las calles y los costos de transporte, incluido el mantenimiento de las aceras y los puentes. El monto restante se divide en necesidades de capital y la asignación del Rainy Day Fund.

“Los habitantes de Tulsa confían en el Concejo y el Alcalde para brindar servicios y proyectos gubernamentales básicos de manera eficiente, incluidas calles y aceras seguras y tranquilas, equipo funcional de policía y bomberos, y parques e instalaciones bien mantenidos. Después de docenas de reuniones públicas, creemos que los proyectos seleccionados en la renovación de Mejorar Nuestra Tulsa satisfacen mejor las necesidades de todos los habitantes de Tulsa, sin ningún aumento de impuestos. Esto garantiza que nuestro gobierno continúe brindando estos importantes servicios básicos a todos aquellos que viven y trabajan en este lugar que llamamos “hogar”, dijo el presidente del Concejo Municipal de Tulsa, Phil Lakin.

District 2 | StoneBrooke Estates Bridge Removal & Replacement

This project entails the removal and replacement of an existing pedestrian bridge located near the northwest corner of West 81st Street and South Houston Avenue due to its failing substructure and unsafe pedestrian conditions. The bridge is deteriorating with wood rot and undermined concrete abutments creating a hazard. The existing crossing is also undersized for drainage flows underneath, which results in drainage blockages and debris accumulation. This project will resolve a public safety hazard by replacing an aging and eroding wooden pedestrian bridge with a new steel / concrete bridge that is deemed to have a 50 to 75 year life cycle.

  • $150,000
