As the Third Penny Sales Tax and General Obligation Bonds for capital improvements were approaching time for renewal in 2013, many Fix Our Streets projects were complete or well under way. Tulsans had a chance to see accountability as the street improvement program was carried out. to find out more about THE HISTORY OF IMPROVE OUR TULSA Streets. You can link to this website: http://fixourstreetslive.com/About/Streets-History.aspx

Before every construction project during our examination, PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION, takes a closer look at all of the participants involved in the project.  In An Examination of the 31st & S. Yale project, PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION, turned to Google’s cache of https://www.neighborhoodscout.com/ok/tulsa/31st-st. It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on Jun 27, 2017 15:06:45 GMT.  The current page could have changed in the meantime.  The information about this area we found out is very helpful while considering a new bridge and road resurfacing project in this area.

Here is a little information about the 31st & Yale area.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the ‘Baby Boom’ generation (1945 – 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the E 31st St / S Yale Ave neighborhood, is that an incredible 90.1% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
