PLANiTULSA Comprehensive Plan
PLANiTULSA, the city-wide process to update Tulsa's
Comprehensive Plan, created a new vision for the City of Tulsa that
reflects the needs and dreams of all our citizens for the next
The Tulsa Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the Tulsa
Metropolitan Area Planning Commission and approved by City Council
in July 2010.
What is the Comprehensive Plan?
The Comprehensive Plan is not a regulatory document. It serves
to guide the physical development of the city over a period of time
through a set of goals and policies. The policies provide a
framework within which individuals, businesses and public officials
make decisions that are consistent with the Our Vision for
Tulsa in the future. This vision is the guiding document
for Tulsa's Comprehensive Plan, and describes the kinds of places,
economy, housing and transportation choices, parks, and open spaces
that the city's policies should be designed to create.
The development of the City of Tulsa Vision and Comprehensive
Plan is based on a set of guiding principles
developed by the Citizen's Team during the comprehensive planning process.

City of Tulsa and Indian Nation Council of Governments. When new
developments are proposed in the City of Tulsa, they are reviewed
for consistency with the Comprehensive Plan.
