In addition to her focus on urban revitalization she led Tulsa’s restaurant industry with her commitment to local foods and sustainability. Elote was the first restaurant to recycle, compost and use biodegradable to-go boxes in Tulsa. Today Billings serves on the Downtown Coordinating Council and is the chairwoman elect for 2017.
