Tulsa's Future

Tulsa’s Future is northeast Oklahoma's regional economic development partnership supported by public and private investors and led by the Tulsa Regional Chamber.

Now in its third phase (2016-2020), the plan leverages innovative strategies to enhance the Tulsa region’s standing as a place for business, residents, visitors and students of all ages. High-value growth in existing and new businesses, thriving public and private educational institutions, and flourishing communities and downtowns will make Tulsa and northeast Oklahoma a national model for quality and sustainable regional development.

The Tulsa's Future five-year action plan was created with the participation of numerous business leaders, community stakeholders and government officials. Ultimately, successful job and wealth-creation efforts will be the result of a collaborative, unified implementation effort.

The plan calls for a new, more holistic approach to economic development. Business retention, expansion and attraction remain at the core, but small business, workforce attraction and quality of life issues—such as downtown revitalization and education—become a part of a bigger plan for regional economic prosperity.

Tulsa’s Future has identified regional metrics for the four pillars of growth:
