The Tulsa Authority for Economic Opportunity will be holding its first meeting on Thursday.
The authority is the result of an 18-month partnership between the Mayor's Office of Economic Development and a consulting firm. The goal of the partnership was to determine how to structure the city's economic development moving forward.
The authority is a merger between the Economic Development Office, Tulsa Industrial Authority, Tulsa Parking Authority and Economic Development Commission.
Thursday's meeting will begin at 9 a.m.
