Tulsa City Council considers proposal to bring more housing near downtown – Tulsa, Oklahoma

Tulsa, Oklahoma 2021-10-20 17:10:04 –

Tulsa, Oklahoma-The Tulsa City Council is considering a proposal Wednesday night that city leaders will bring more housing options to downtown.

Travis Hulse, chief planner at the Tulsa Planning Office, said the project aims to provide housing options and affordability around downtown Tulsa.

“There can be a wide range of people, which we want to attract and embrace all kinds of housing and lifestyle options,” says Hulse.

In this project, you will create an apartment building (such as an apartment) that contains up to 8 units.

Some districts are exempt from this overlay, such as the Owen Park district, Tracy Park, and Buena Vista district.

However, the Riverview district has not yet created that list.

“We are already accepting apartments here,” says Cathy Skalla, who lives in the Riverview district, which stretches from 12th to 21st.

“They are part of the structure of this neighborhood, but additional modern buildings that don’t have to look compatible with the design of these old homes seem to overwhelm the charm as well as the features of this neighborhood. I feel, “she says.

Scalar says she and her neighbors are concerned that their parking situation could be even more crowded.

The planning office wants people to travel by other means of transportation (buses, bicycles, walks) because they are so close to downtown Tulsa, Hals said.

“People can look downtown and find something that suits them and makes sense of their family,” says Hulse.

City council members are expected to consider the proposal at the Wednesday night meeting.
