Hello Riverview Neighbors!
It’s time again for our next Riverview Neighborhood Association Meeting! This meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 26th at 6pm @ the Creek Nation Council Oak Park which is located on the Northwest corner of 18th and Cheyenne. Yes, we are planning an outdoor meeting in October, but we’re praying the weather cooperates 🙂 The neighborhood association will provide some beverages and light snacks and feel free to bring the kiddos, all are welcome but please bring your own lawn chair! This meeting will feature our friends at Up With Trees who will give us an intro and update on their 2022/2023 programs. We will also discuss a few other neighborhood items, vote on new board members, and provide an open forum to hear out any suggestions, comments or concerns within our neighborhood.Please join us for this general neighborhood gathering. We look forward to seeing you there!!!
Below are a few general updates on our neighborhood:
- A new zoning request will be coming soon for the property(s) located at and around 1905 S Boston Ave, Tulsa, OK. The zoning request anticipated is to modify the zoning from RM-2 to MX-2 One of the potential new tenants requesting this change will become a coffee shop with adult beverages and a dog park. The reasoning for the MX-2 is to allow them to have a small assembly area on the North side of their property. They’re also working with the Parks department to have direct access to the Midland Valley Trail. If you’re curious about the current zoning in our neighborhood check out this link. We’ve invited the new tenants to attend the 10/26 meeting to answer any questions you may have.
- The 2nd annual Goff Fest will happen on December 1-4th. As you may, or may not know, there are two Bruce Goff designs in our neighborhood, and many more in the surrounding neighborhoods. Their website provides a schedule of events and a map of the Bruce Goff designs around Tulsa.
- Speaking of Bruce Goff architecture, a special performance event will be held on Friday November 11th at the Spotlight Theater. More specifically, the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture (TFA) is partnering with Spotlight Theater in support of building restoration efforts and they need your help! Learn more about the event and get your tickets here! The Spotlight Theater is so much more than a historic landmark in the neighborhood, they are also a local nonprofit and provide opportunities for children to get involved with theater.
- This year, the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture held a walking tour of homes in one of Tulsa’s historic neighborhoods. With Riverview being such a historic neighborhood we thought a tour would be a great way to showcase all the good things in our neighborhood. Please reach out to us if you would be interested in showing off your home! A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Riverview Neighborhood Association and the remainder goes to our neighbors at the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture.
- If you happened to notice a little more activity in the neighborhood on October 10th, we can tell you why! Tulsa recently hosted the Tulsa Native American Day celebration at our very own Dream Keepers Park located at 1875 S. Boulder Park Dr. There was music, food, games, and a variety of other activities. We hope you were able to make it out to enjoy the celebration.
- Attached are the meeting minutes from our 8/26/22 meeting.
We’ll see you on the 26th!
