Propositions 2 and 3 had little opposition last night as the election numbers for both started out ahead when the first votes were tallied and gained momentum until the end of the night.
The final unofficial tally had the two propositions winning by a margin of 2-to-1.
Councilman GT Bynum, Tulsa Regional Chamber President Mike Neal and Project leader Barrett Waller all believe the proposals passed because of a concerted effort to get input from city residents this past summer about how the funds would be spent.
The two propositions were branded together under the banner, "Improve Our Tulsa".
Proposition 2 was a general obligation bond election that will raise $355 million for streets and bridges.
Proposition 3 was an extension of the third penny sales tax and is expected to raise $565 million over the next seven years.
Those funds are earmarked for law enforcement, fire fighting, and numerous quality of life projects such as pools, parks, and the zoo.
Additional matching funds will now be available from private sources as well.
