There are signs for proposed commercial centers on the northwest and southwest corners of 71st and Elwood, right on the trail system at the base of Turkey Mountain right in sight of the river. High traffic counts, easy expressway access and near very high income areas. Perfect location and less than a mile from the park and connected to Riverparks via trails. .

I have seen on Facebook that the City has put up signs at Helmerich Park saying "Authorized Use Only, for information contact 918-596-7508."  Supposedly, anyone who isn't in a volleyball league is being removed if they attempt to use the courts at anytime. The post is by the Facebook group Save Helmerich Park.

Can anyone confirm this?

Considering the City Council effectively shut down the volleyball courts, could be legit. That area is no longer a public park.

Back to District Court...

http://www.1170kfaq.com/news/local-news/ok-supreme-court-sends-helmerich-park-lawsuit-back-to-district-court

Has GT had an about-face and is reconsidering his previous support of this development?

Quote
“Since taking office last December I have sought to resolve this long and drawn out issue in the best interest of all Tulsans," Mayor Bynum said in a statement.  "There are important legal issues that need to be settled, and today's ruling means we will have to wait a while longer for the judicial process to work through them. The most important thing is that we get it right."

Depends on what his version of "right" is.

People are going to be very happy.

How is that an about-face? Sounds like a pretty neutral comment that the courts need to decide on this and that he is not the hold up at the  moment.

This is a direct quote from GT in a TW article on 6/1/16:
Quote
As far as proposed development along 71st Street and Riverside Drive at Helmerich Park that would conceivably have Recreational Equipment Inc. as its anchor tenant, Bynum said the citizens of Tulsa, who have made a large investment over the years in maintaining that land, should play a larger role in what happens.

“I’m not going to say today what I think about it one way or the other because I want to hear what the citizens of Tulsa have to say about it,” Bynum said. “People have spent a whole lot more time than I have studying this and looking at it.”

The people then spoke out overwhelmingly in opposition to it.

And then on 2/21/17 GT says in a KTUL article:
Quote
"The vast majority of our river frontage is and will continue to be preserved in its natural state, but there are a few targeted places along the corridor that are considered reasonable pockets of development and this has long been considered one of those," said Bynum.

So which is it?

That quote was in February. So he went from neutral/see what the citizens want to for-development/didn't care what the citizens want back in February. What about the quote from this week, 9/12/2017, makes you think he changed his mind again?

The comment just said it's up to the courts to address the legal issues. As far as I can tell, he still isn't listening to the opposition on this. Maybe he will if they win and he can say "I was with the citizens the whole time!"
