The proposals for the City of Tulsa's Vision sales-tax extension are all now in, and those proposals are many and varied. Some are, indeed, visionary; others seem fanciful. Some are familiar; others seem quite novel.

Now comes the difficult task of narrowing down the numerous needs, goals, and desires in these proposals to a coherent set of projects that will be put before voters in April of next year.

TulsaNow, which has been around for more than a decade, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to "help Tulsa become the most vibrant, diverse, sustainable, and prosperous city of our size.

With a potential extension, the City of Tulsa must identify projects for inclusion in the new Vision2 program.
