This afternoon I read an article in the Tulsa World about a proposal to build a low water dam on the Arkansas River, and an island in the resulting lake.
Although the group would not confirm a projected price tag, sources say it is likely to be $500 million in public funding with $100 million in private funds.That’s a half a billion dollars ya’ll!!! Tulsa has some serious infrastructure problems; we have 4.5 billion dollars worth of unfunded improvements. Once all of our streets are fixed, water and sewer are fed to all parts of the city, there are enough cops in the street, and employees on the City payroll get paid fair market wages, then we can aspire to build an island in the river. Until then, we should leave land reclamation to the United Arab Emirates.
