Tulsa’s Kendall-Whittier neighborhood has been named a semifinalist for the Great American Main Street Award. The award recognizes Main Street programs that use historic preservation to drive commercial revitalization. The Kendall-Whittier Main Street program is led by 2007 Urban Design Studio graduate, Ed Sharrer, pictured above. “We are talking about the very best from every state in the union going for this,” Sharrer said in an interview with the Tulsa World. “So making it as a semifinalist is really pretty remarkable.”
