Past RFMS Design Projects

Since 2007, RedFork Main Street has been actively organizing people and resources to do grassroots economic development.  The Main Street model encourages smaller, incremental projects that eventually begin to transform a district.  City streetscape projects, neighborhood clean-ups, and private owner rehab all add up to a much improved business corridor for Southwest Tulsa.

In four years, the project area has recorded more than $36 million in public and private investment and nearly 7,500 volunteers hours logged.  Check out some of the results below!
