Recommendations of a River Development Task Force are formally presented to Tulsa City Councilors. Task Force Chairman Herb Fritz says the report includes 30 points, but the most important by far is ‘keeping water in the river’ and moving forward with plans to upgrade Zink Dam and finding funding for dams near Jenks and Sand Springs. The report also recommends the city do all it can to support the Gathering Place development at 31st and Riverside, spearheaded by the George Kaiser Family Foundation.
A final recommendation is to create a committee or agency to oversee and coordinate all development along the river. City Councilors are expected to follow that suggestion and form such an entity.
