The City of Tulsa will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 16, to present updates on the Brownfields program. The meeting will be from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Central Center at Centennial Park, 1028 E. Sixth St.

Brownfields updates at the meeting will include announcing the availability of due diligence environmental assessments by City of Tulsa contractors at no cost to applicants. This service is provided in support of private sector redevelopment efforts through a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The target area for these environmental assessment applications is property along Route 66 throughout the city of Tulsa. Information will be available at the public meeting on the types of environmental assessment that the City of Tulsa can provide, as well as the applications needed.

Also at the public meeting, the City of Tulsa will announce its intent to submit a proposal to the EPA for abatement of asbestos from portions of Air Force Plant No. 3 located at Tulsa International Airport. A Draft Cleanup Proposal and Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) have been prepared and will be available for review at the public meeting.

 

After the public meeting, the Draft Cleanup Proposal and Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives also will be available for review during normal business hours at City Hall, One Technology Center, 175 E. 2nd St., Room 15-040. The public may review and submit comments regarding these materials and other questions about brownfields to Michelle Barnett, Brownfields Program Manager, at brownfields@cityoftulsa.org
