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.

On January 9, 2014 the Tulsa City Council approved the Utica Midtown Corridor Small Area Plan. As an initial step in plan implementation, TMAPC initiated an amendment to create an MX-I Zoning District. Key points of the MX-I district include:
• Applied as a base zoning district
• Supports institutional uses (educational and medical) and fosters development of complementary uses in the vicinity of these campuses
• Provides a transition between large campus/institutional uses and established residential neighborhoods and historic preservation districts
• Allows flexibility within defined campus environments and surrounding areas
• Encourages compatibility between land uses and transportation options within the district
• Provides standards for signage to accommodate pedestrian scale developments as well as large structures often found in a campus setting
• Encourages a walkable environment through standards addressing transparency of store-fronts, build-to zones, landscaping, screening that create an animated, cohesive pedestrian realm
