61st and Peoria Task Force Continue Efforts Make Area Safer

Posted: Updated:

It's an area in Tulsa that needs some attention. A task force is working to make this dangerous area safer. Dozens of people met at City Hall to put a plan into action for the 6st and Peoria area. Some people that live in that area say they understand more people need to get involved to make this plan work but there are some things that can be done.

"Definitely need a community center where they can help people start improving their lives and the idea that they already have for a park. More recreations and more things for people to do. Maybe more people get involved with their kids," Steve Miller says.

Six different committees that came out of this meeting. They are: safety, health, education, social services, service center/finances, and housing. The safety committee was the biggest, and Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan says the police department will be in on all the safety meetings.

"We have to bring in information first and analyze it and see what we think some of the problems are and what we can solve and this could go a lot of different directions. But it's all going to be focused on making it a safer neighborhood," Chief Jordan says.

These committees will meet monthly and report back to city leaders about what they are doing.
