Oklahoma City residents can review the product of years of their work and input on the City’s draft comprehensive plan, planokc, during a 60-day public review and comment period that begins this week.
To kick off the public review process, a presentation and open house will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 20, in City Council Chamber on the third floor of City Hall, 200 N Walker Ave. The presentation will also be broadcast live on Cox Channel 20, on okc.gov and the City’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/cityofokc.
“We hope residents will join us at this open house to celebrate their hard work and contributions to this document over the past several years,” City Planning Director Aubrey Hammontree said. “We are proud of the quality of the plan and thoughtfulness of its contents, and think it will serve our community well as we head into our city’s promising future.”
Citizens can review and comment on the draft planokc document online at http://okc.opencomment.us or view a hard copy at a local library and fill out a comment form.
During the presentation, planners will share an overview of the plan, demonstrate tools available for commenting on the plan document and review next steps toward adopting the plan. City staff will then be available for one-on-one discussion in a come-and-go format.
The comprehensive plan is a policy document that guides future development and decisions about how the City grows over the next several decades. More than 20,000 residents, business leaders and community advocates have contributed to the development of the comprehensive plan over the past four years.
After the public review and comment period concludes in March, the final plan document will be scheduled for public hearings and adoption by the Planning Commission and City Council in April and May 2015.
On January 20, Residents invited to open house of City’s comprehensive “planokc”
