Facility Tour

Councilors and the Mayor toured several City facilities to discuss facility amenities, capital needs and opportunities for improvement.


Tour stops included the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, City Medical Building, Jack Purdie Police and Municipal Courts Building, Tulsa Fire Department Headquarters, garage and supply buildings, and a discussion of the proposed site for the new Tulsa Animal Welfare shelter.


Through the Improve Our Tulsa and Vision Tulsa funding packages, the citizens of Tulsa have funded the largest streets improvement program in the City's history while simultaneously making visionary investments in our community. 

With an enhanced focus on street improvements based on citizen feedback for over a decade, a few City facilities have deferred some large maintenance repairs as the City worked to address street repairs and enhancements. Following the $918.7 million first Improve Our Tulsa package, in 2019, Tulsa voters approved a second capital improvements package, the $639 million Improve Our Tulsa 2. In 2023, Tulsans will have the opportunity to vote on another Improve Our Tulsa proposal, a four-year package  that will fund critical improvements to Tulsa’s streets, City facilities and equipment, and provide funding for critical housing needs in Tulsa.


In January 2023, Mayor Bynum and the Tulsa City Council toured some facilities that are in need of repairs and a formal proposal regarding funding needs and cost engineering will be presented in the coming weeks by City departments.
