Thanks to everyone who attended the Alert Neighbors meeting last Thursday! It’s great to see so many new faces coming together to better our community! Many thanks to Major Williams and Tom Hutchinson for volunteering their evening to speak to us. Thanks also to new neighbor Tony Gervasio who is the new chair of our Alert Neighbors Committee.
This Saturday we will be having our general meeting at 10am in our regular spot at Centenary United Methodist. We won’t be meeting too long this month since it’s Mayfest/ Blue Dome weekend, and many of us just met last Thursday. We’ll be discussing some of the major points from the Alert Neighbors meeting for those who weren’t able to attend. I also have extra Alert Neighbor booklets and decals for those interested. We’ll also be going over our active committee groups. Sign up sheets will be available for those who would like to volunteer their time by serving on a committee.
If you have a little bit of time on your hands, please consider voting for your favorite Tulsa places in Urban Tulsa’s Absolute Best of Tulsa. I don’t want to sway anyone’s votes, but do remember our neighborhood business owners, as well as businesses and people who help to support Brady Heights! There’s a category for Best Public Art AND Best Neighborhood. . . so vote your conscience
Also, please take a moment to give feedback about the different PlaniTulsa proposed scenarios.

Thank you for your interest in the growth and improvement of Tulsa. Your participation is vitally important as we engage in a process of community planning that we call PLANiTULSA. Please participate in the upcoming planning workshops, Sept. 23 and 24. To register go to www.planitulsa.org, or call the PLANiTULSA info line at 918.576.5684.
The PLANiTULSA process, led by expert city planner John Fregonese, can bring all regions of the city together. It can also move our economic development forward. A well-done, inclusive plan can improve the quality of life for all Tulsans as it guides us through the next thirty years.
Mr. Fregonese will conduct community workshops the evening of September 23 and the afternoon of September 24. These two workshops are critical opportunities to participate in the planning process. Come help us determine a vision for our city and create an inclusive plan for how all of Tulsa will grow. We need everyone’s input.
The PLANiTULSA brochure is attached for more information. Please share it with your neighbors and encourage them to participate.
Here’s a great way to get involved with Tulsa’s future development! We’re lucky, too, that both of these workshops are so close. The BOK Workshop is during the workday BUT the evening workshop being held at Greenwood Cultural Center should be doable for almost all of us!
Register Today! PLANiTULSA Workshops September 22 and 23
You’re invited to participate in one of two hands-on, city-wide workshops as a part of the City of Tulsa’s comprehensive planning process, PLANiTULSA. Working together in small groups of friends and neighbors, you’ll help create a vision of what you want for our city.
