Community Meetings Scheduled for Kirkpatrick Heights Greenwood Master Plan


The public is invited to community meetings on October 28 and October 30 to help shape the future of 56 acres of publicly owned land in the Kirkpatrick Heights/Greenwood areas of North Tulsa.

In August, the City of Tulsa, Tulsa Authority for Economic Opportunity (TAEO), and Tulsa Development Authority (TDA) announced the selection of Wallace Roberts & Todd (WRT) to develop the Kirkpatrick Heights/Greenwood Master Plan - a plan to create a vision and action-oriented redevelopment strategy to guide the area's growth.

In addition to an 11-member leadership committee consisting of Greenwood and North Tulsa leaders, further community input is needed to help shape the area's future.

Anyone may attend either of the following open house-style meetings:

  • Thursday, October 28
    Session 1: Greenwood Cultural Center, 6- 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, October 30
    Session 2: 36th Street North Event Center, Noon - 2 p.m.

Meeting goals include:

  • Introduce community members to the project and invite them to participate
  • Orient community members to the study area and goals for the study
  • Develop a community-led vision and set of goals for the process
  • Understand the community's priorities for development, investment, capacity building, and long-term development governance
