The question that the City Council and the Community Leaders should continue to ask, what would people in the community do if the small discount stores had chosen not to make an investment in the community. We are not against a full service store, we need several in the north Tulsa community. However, if the same items sold are unhealthy if sold in a small discount store, than perhaps you can explain to us why they are healthier if sold in a full service store.
A moratorium in north Tulsa would result in a suspension of business development activity (stores, etc.) in certain areas of north Tulsa.
A moratorium in Tulsa would not demonstrate that the City is concerned about economic development, building the workforce and healthier communities in the near future.
A moratorium in north Tulsa does not support revitalization plans for the north Tulsa community that residents have been involved in for the past 10 years are more.
Amongst the highest priorities that municipalities should be concerned with is creating jobs, improving the tax base.
A moratorium in north Tulsa does not support the creation of jobs or building wealth in the north Tulsa community.
A moratorium in north Tulsa disrupts the communities ability advocate for the creating and attracting desirable business into the north Tulsa community; a moratorium does not inspire economic growth.
