Peoria BRT Land Use Framework
In 2016, the Tulsa Planning Office led a project team including The Lakota Group to complete a land use study for transit station areas to be located along the Peoria Avenue corridor between 38th Street North and the intersection of 81st & South Lewis Avenue. The transit station area land use study evaluated the areas around seven of the 19 future BRT station location areas, recommended land use changes that can maximize public investment, and addressed which land uses would provide the most successful outcomes for the private properties that border the BRT station sites.
