Local Plans that Support Walkability

City of Tulsa ADA Transition Plan
The Transition Plan provides a schedule for the removal of physical barriers. It is used to assist the City of Tulsa in planning and budgeting for the accessibility improvements across the community, including sidewalks, bus shelters, intersection crossings, etc.

PlaniTulsa: Transportation Policy Plan
The transportation chapter identifies how Tulsa’s transportation
building blocks will provide mobility choices to a broader group
of users, diversify the economy, and aid in building a sustainable
community through street, transit, bicycle and pedestrian enhancements.

Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee Goals and Recommendations
The BPACs recommendations were made to council on December 6th, 2012. The goals and recommendations set out long term priorities for bicycle and pedestrian improvements.

Trails Master Plan
The 1999 Trails Master Plan recommends the implementation of a 283-mile network of off-road multipurpose trails throughout the metro area, much of which has been completed.

One response to “Plans

  1. I wanted to jump and down when I saw this morning’s article in the Tulsa World (but hadn’t had enough coffee yet)! For the last 15+ years I have been grumbling about the lack of pedestrian access in Tulsa and all the problems it causes for the entire community. Seeing children walking in the streets to get home from school makes me nuts (especially when it’s a MAJOR artery like South 41st!)

    When we started a family, we seriously considered leaving Tulsa for a suburb where our children would have access to neighborhood sidewalks. We decided to stick it out, but thousands of other families make the choice to leave every year – and that impacts our schools, our traffic, our health and safety, our pollution levels – EVERYTHING!

    I was convinced that I was the only person who really saw this as a problem – it hasn’t really been addressed in any of the city planning that has gone on. So THANK YOU for doing this!

    My heart goes out to those who have lost a loved one or are struggling in other ways. I look forward to more efforts and hope I can find a way to plug in and help out!
