TULSA (Aug. 18, 2011) – Development opportunities and economic initiatives in the historic Red Fork District will be the focus of a bus tour for commercial realtors on Aug. 25.
Ryan Miller, OSU College of Medicine alumni director and a member of the RedFork Main Street board of directors, said its Economic Restructuring Committee will host a Commercial REALTOR® Bus Tour to inform the commercial brokerage industry about points of interest, improvements and growth potential in the area.
The realtors will meet at the OSU Center for Health Sciences, 1111 W. 17th St., at 4:30 p.m. Tour sites include the Arkansas River west bank, Triangle pocket park, Goodwill Industries, Holly refinery, Eugene Field Elementary School, Community Action Program, Cities Service and Crystal City Shopping Center.
Participants will return to the OSU-CHS campus for a presentation from David Simmons with the City of Tulsa planning department. Simmons will give an overview of the economic development benefits and plans for West Tulsa. In addition, Tulsa County News publisher Gary Percefull will discuss development in the Red Fork District.
RedFork Main Street began in 2007. Its mission is to restore the RedFork Main Street project area (Southwest Boulevard from the Cyrus Avery Memorial Bridge at 11th Street to 33rd West Avenue) as the cultural, educational and economic backbone of the Southwest Tulsa community.
