Tulsa, Okla. - While he likes some of the ideas for Vision2 projects that came out of Wednesday's special Tulsa City Council meeting, local realtor Bill Leighty says he still thinks the overall proposal feels rushed.
And he doesn't think Tulsa should be part of a countywide vote.
"Why should the city of Tulsa put the fate of their capital spending into the hands of voters in Glenpool, and Bixby, and Jenks, and vice-versa," Leighty said.
He said Oklahoma City had the better approach with its MAPS program, which only included projects in Oklahoma City and was only had Oklahoma City residents voting on it.
"It's not a countywide thing," he said. "It's all about the city of Oklahoma City."
Leighty said he does support some of the 18 proposals that were announced Wednesday night, notably the downtown Central Library renovation, but he said it would be better to take the blueprint that's already available with the PlaniTulsa recommendations and follow those.
