In December 2016, the City Council and Mayor Bynum conducted a strategic planning retreat focused on identifying outcomes the city would like track over the coming years. Many outcomes are focused on the experience a resident, business owner or visitor of the City of Tulsa would experience. For example, one of the key outcomes is increasing Tulsa's population. This approach is unique in that it focuses on outcomes over outputs. By taking this approach, it gives city leaders the ability to work with external partners to realize goals. Below are the eight key goals for 2017.
More goals will be posted as data is finalized. Benchmark figures reflect a national average or an average of cities of similar size. Many of the measures listed have detailed data in a dashboard that can be accessed by clicking the links below.
