Citywide Outcomes Dashboard

In December 2016, the City Council and Mayor Bynum conducted a strategic planning retreat focused on identifying outcomes the city would like to 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.

Benchmark data reflects a national average or an average of cities of similar size. A PDF version of the full Strategic Planning Framework and Outcomes can be downloaded online.
