City of Tulsa grants a Building Permit to the Church of Saint Mary

Great news for the building project!

“The City of Tulsa Board of Adjustment unanimously approved the special exception to the current zoning code that is required in order to proceed with the new Community Center project,” says Matt Bendel, parish owner’s representative. “This brings us one step closer to breaking ground. We are hopeful that the last remaining permit approval (Infrastructure Development Permit or IDP) will be received in the next few weeks.”
