Tulsa’s Route 66 corridor has benefited from a mixture of old and new – historic preservation and contemporary innovation. From parks to businesses, Route 66 continues to be an important part of Tulsa community life.
The City of Tulsa Brownfields Program seeks to enhance these efforts by developing an Area-Wide Brownfields Redevelopment Plan for the Route 66 corridor. A brownfield is an abandoned, idled or under-used industrial and commercial site where redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination.
An interactive public meeting will be held Tuesday, Aug. 1, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Central Center at Centennial Park, 1028 E. Sixth St. The focus of the meeting will be to receive citizen comments about where brownfields are located, and which ones have the most potential as key drivers of economic or recreational development.
In addition to a discussion of the Route 66 Area-Wide Brownfields Redevelopment Plan, the meeting will feature updates on the cleanup and redevelopment of other properties, including the former Morton Health Center and Evans-Fintube.
