Streetlight Prioritization Analysis

In 2019, the Tulsa Planning Office was asked to help the City of Tulsa’s Streets and Stormwater Department prioritize the installation of new streetlights using a data-driven approach. After a decade-long moratorium on new streetlights, the City wanted to go about the placement of requested lights in a methodical way.  Using mapping software and our strategic planning method, our team mapped and analyzed several indicators to create a Streetlight Urgency Score for each incoming request. Requests with the highest Urgency Scores were recommended to be completed first. » Read the Report
