Merger Ushers In New Era for Planning In Tulsa

In January, the City of Tulsa’s and INCOG’s Planning Departments merged, creating the new Tulsa Planning Office, housed at INCOG. The unification of the two departments was announced in October by Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum, who sought to provide better service to the public, streamline planning efforts, and create efficiencies while elevating the role that planning plays in Tulsa’s development.

The INCOG Board of Directors officially approved the agreement in December, and crews completed an extensive build-out in January to accommodate the 12 new employees. Susan Miller, AICP, who has led INCOG’s planning efforts since 2012, heads the combined department.

With the move also came a new, program-based structure. The Current Planning division will continue to oversee cases that come before the Planning Commission and City & County Boards of Adjustment, and now will include staffing for the Tulsa Preservation Commission. The Long-Range division includes teams focused on updating the City’s Comprehensive Plan, implementing and tracking existing plans, and developing strategic plans for smaller areas. The department also includes the City’s new Destination Districts program, which seeks to revitalize commercial districts across Tulsa.

For more information, contact Susan Miller, AICP, Director of the Tulsa Planning Office, at smiller@incog.org or 918.579.9470.
