Vision Tulsa Projects Moving Forward

Two Vision Tulsa projects will be one step closer to breaking ground with the signing of capital project agreements. Capital project agreements provide the framework, scope and funding available for project owners to make the citizens’ vision a reality.

In 2016, Tulsa voters approved $510.6 million alone for 37 transformative economic development projects that will help Tulsa make advancements in education, health, transportation, economic development and fund improvements for Arkansas River infrastructure. The City of Tulsa will be working with other organizations to finalize capital agreements for the remainder of the economic development projects that received Vision Tulsa funding.
