To showcase the latest developments on a plan for the city, the Oklahoma City Department of Planning will be hosting an open house for the public on Tuesday, July 31. A comprehensive plan for the city called planOKC will be presented during the meeting.
PlanOKC is the latest development plan for the city that has a long-term goal of providing a healthy and sustainable city for all residents. PlanOKC began in 2008 and has seen continued progress through the creation and improvement of polices and facilities spanning the 621-square-mile city. The plan focuses on providing better transportation options, retail and entertainment opportunities, culture, education, and safety. City planners are hoping to have the plan finalized and adopted by 2013.
The open house for planOKC will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the third floor of the Council Chamber of City Hall, 200 N. Walker. There will be a 30-minute meet-and-greet followed by a short presentation of the plan and its goals. After the presentation, attendees can meet with the city’s planners to talk more about the plan and ask questions.
