Boosters of downtown Tulsa say more large parking garages would help revitalization of the area. They made their case today before city councilors. Members of the Downtown Coordinating Council, the Tulsa Parking Authority, and the Chamber of Commerce went to city hall to outline plans for a new parking structure. The Chamber’s Director of Downtown Development, Delise Tomlinson, says the current parking situation has cost business, some have declined to move to downtown or expand downtown because of lack of adequate parking for their needs.  

Councilors have questions about location and cost. There are three possible sites, but no particular one has been selected, and the cost could be more than 20-million dollars.
