Congrats Tulsa! Your Downtown is Filled With Parking Blight
"The final match was a total blowout," reports Angie Schmitt, "with Tulsa stomping Milwaukee in our poll, 483 to 124. In the end, no other downtown could compare to the parking devastation on the south side of Tulsa. And so we award Tulsa Streetsblog’s first 'Golden Crater' award."
"But the point of this contest isn’t just to single out Tulsa — it’s to help provoke change," writes Schmitt. "In that spirit we wanted to share a redevelopment plan for this area submitted by Tulsa native Kevin Adams, who completed the project while working toward a master’s degree in urban planning at Clemson University in 2010. His plan [PDF] involves redeveloping the south side of Tulsa’s downtown as a reimagined 'Cathedral Square,' a name sometimes given to the area in recognition of its beautiful historic churches."
