County Leaders reverse a zoning decision along the Gilcrease Expressway
Tulsa, OK –
Tulsa County leaders overrule planners in a zoning dispute along a corridor where the Gilcrease Expressway extension is proposed. Members of the planning board turned down a request to change zoning on the corner of West 41st Street and South 57Th West Avenue. Attorney Steve Schuler appealed to County Commissioners on behalf of the property owner. He says the Gilcrease is changing the character of the area.
Commissioners overturned the planning board's decision, but not before placing several restrictions on the proposed retail and office development.
