Turley Ideas

Have a great idea for improving life in Turley? Post it here. This is different than the columns on Issues. Here we will dream big or come up with simple and small ideas that build community.

For example:
Having a "Turley Trail Day" when we get the bikers and walkers in the Tulsa area to come down the new trail along the old railroad track, and our stores and restaurants could offer specials for them as they stop and rest here before going on their way or returning? This is like what towns do each June as the Oklahoma Free Wheel bike tour goes through the state and stops at their town.

Bring Back an annual Heritage Parade along Peoria?

Pool our resources and rent one of the vacant buildings in a public spot for a community-run Turley Public Library?

Get a place here for a regular "Free Swap" so you have a chance to giveaway personal and building items you no longer need, and a chance to get from others what they have brought?

You get the picture...Post ideas. They will be like seeds. Some may never come up and bear fruit, at least in your lifetime, but others will take hold and grow as other people catch on and help. Consider this area of the blog as the Turley Brainstorm.


Turley Slogans? Mottos?

Calling all creative thinkers. Let's have fun trying to come up with a short phrase (8 syllables or less is a good rule of thumb but let that be a guide not a law) that captures something of the essence of life in Turley, inviting to others, intriguing, and humor is okay too...Imagine it on a tee-shirt, bumper sticker, public signs....

Welcome To Turley

Our community is located just north of the city limits of Tulsa. We begin at 56th St. North. We go from there to the Osage County Road to the west. We go to the city limits of Sperry and Owasso to the north and east. We are home to Turley Hill and Bird Creek. An historic small town community that is a little bit urban and a little bit rural. We like the mix and hope you will too.

In this blog you will find all things connected to Turley. We want to hear your stories, your news, events, your memories, requests. Find a category and post away. Spread the word.
