Our mission is to provide unbiased advice to the Tulsa City Council and the Tulsa County Board of Commissioners on development and zoning matters, to provide a public forum that fosters public participation and transparency in land development and planning, to adopt and maintain a comprehensive plan for the metropolitan area, and to provide other planning, zoning, and land division services that promote the harmonious development of the Tulsa Metropolitan Area and enhance and preserve the quality of life for the region’s current and future residents.

Public meetings begin for proposed
River Design Overlay

Public meetings will begin for a proposed River Design Overlay district along the Arkansas River within the city limits of Tulsa. 
A draft ordinance and map are a result of the work of a steering committee, comprised of 4 City Councilors, representatives from the Mayor’s office, urban planners, local architects, developers,
homebuilders and others.  The steering committee was formed as a
result of a joint Mayor and City Council retreat held in February 2015, where they identified a shared goal of “drafting regulatory tools to guide river development” and “adopting river corridor design guidelines.”

Zoning overlay districts are intended to supplement existing zoning regulations to implement the City plans and initiatives.  Also proposed
is a refinement to the City of Tulsa’s Comprehensive Plan to establish
an Arkansas River Corridor land use designation, which describes the intended land use characteristics of the corridor.

Two City Council town hall meetings were held on Monday April 18 and Tuesday April 19, 2016 to present and discuss the details of the proposed overlay.  Click here to view the presentation.
