Is PlaniTulsa dead?  What happened to it?  I feel like we put in an enormous amount of work on it and then it was just dropped stone dead.  I almost never hear it mentioned anymore, especially not by city leadership.

From what I was told it's been shelved in a dark and dusty place.

During the last Mayoral Race his honor stated straight out that he does not support increased density and that Tulsa should naturally expand to its borders.

I'm not sure what he thinks happens once there is no more room to grow outward.

As long as he is in office, PlaniTulsa is indeed dead...and unfortunately a great many developers like it that way.

Right now PlaniTulsa is in the middle of the zoning code update phase. Some new designations are being added such as mixed-use.

It is not dead nor shelved, but it is not being pursued with much fervor since Dewey took office and it was a Kathy project.

According to the timeline it was indeed supposed to be done and implemented by now. Other cities have started and implemented theirs during the time we have gotten "in the middle of..." ours.  Meanwhile more non-pedestrian/transit friendly crap is going into areas that are supposed to eventually be pedestrian/transit friendly, thus further hurting PlaniTulsa's aims for those areas.

 Sounds shelved.

There sure seems to be ever more city employees, time, and money aggressively pursuing "water in the river"

How does PlaniTulsa benefit South Tulsa?

Hopefully, it will strategically pave the way to offer residents more options than the same collections of cookie-cutter housing developments and Ugly-As-Sin-On-Sunday strip malls.
We have plenty of those already.

That is Dewey's "vision".  PlaniTulsa died when Dewey was first elected, and then reelected.  Hopefully there is a future mayor who can carry that torch in the future.  We could've been ahead of many other cities with this but now we're behind and will be playing catch up, just like the city has been doing for 20 years...

I fear that if Dewey ever gets his wish for "water in the river," we won't actually get water.... just thousands of orange cones. Grin

I kind of remember KRMG releasing hundreds (thousands?) of small floating objects during the Great Raft Races.
