The Tulsa Regional Chamber recently concluded the second generation of its long-term economic development program, Tulsa’s Future, and results include goal-surpassing job creation and capital investment in northeast Oklahoma.

Since 2011, 28,814 jobs have been announced through the Tulsa’s Future II program, according to the Tulsa Regional Chamber.

Of those new jobs, 15,355 met the program’s target of paying an annual salary of $50,000 or greater. Due to the success of Tulsa’s Future II, during 2013 the initial goal of creating 10,000 high-wage jobs for the program’s five-year term was increased to 15,000 jobs that pay $50,000 or more.
