Realizing Tulsa’s Dream
The mission of the Tulsa Development Authority is to improve Tulsa through programs and projects designed to utilize private and public resources that advance the physical, social, and economic wellbeing of citizens and neighborhoods throughout the City. To that end, our people are the key to realizing that dream.
Tax Increment Fund Activity 2015 – 2021
TDA administers five of Tulsa’s TIFs – Tax Increment Funds. It has provided landscaping, lighting, sidewalks, curbs and parking. Two of its largest TIF projects have been a $1 million William North Garage in the Tech TIF, and an ongoing $1.3 million street-lighting project in the Blue Dome area.
Tulsa Development Authority: Change Agent
A plan is no more than words on paper until someone takes action. In the past six years, Tulsa, particularly its downtown, has experienced a tremendous building revival that many hoped for, but few imagined would ever happen.
Although many players have contributed to the seemingly overnight rebirth of Tulsa’s urban core, the Tulsa Development Authority has been a genuine change agent. Yet few outside city planning offices and property developers may be aware of TDA’s role.
