Construction of Facilities

This sales tax proposal is patterned after Vision 2025, a one-cent, 13-year increase in the Tulsa County sales tax for regional economic development and capital improvements. One of the significant capital improvements funded by Vision 2025 was the development of Northeastern State University at Broken Arrow, which since 2003 has grown to a campus that can accommodate 8,000 students.

The sales tax collections in this proposal provide for the construction of educational, cultural and health and recreational facilities on the University Center campus, which includes the following projects: an academic and administrative center, a visual and performing arts center, a cross-country course, walking trails, soccer fields and a central plant facility.
