Economic Development Framework


The City of Tulsa is moving forward with recommendations from an 8-month study, which calls for the creation of a consolidated, independent economic development Authority. 

The new entity, which will streamline and strengthen the City’s economic development efforts, will merge the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development (MOED), Tulsa Industrial Authority (TIA), Tulsa Parking Authority (TPA), and Economic Development Commission (EDC) into a single, enhanced Trust Authority; the entity will also provide staffing for the Tulsa Development Authority, and an expanded Board will allow TDA Trustees to serve coterminous on the new Authority.
