What is Development Services?
Development Services is responsible for building and infrastructure development plan review, permitting and inspections for developments within the City of Tulsa.

During Mayor G.T. Bynum’s 2019 State of the City address, he announced two major improvements to better serve the citizens of Tulsa and the development community.

Modernize Fees to Improve Service

April 2018, Implementation of Online Permitting System – Launched the online permitting portal, which allows individuals, businesses and developers to apply for, receive permits and pay online without having to come to City Hall.

July 2018, Alignment of Development Services and Economic Development – Formed the Development Services Department as a standalone group reporting to the Chief of Economic Development. This structural shift ensures the department is fully integrated within the City’s economic development goals.

October 2018, Consolidation of Planning Department and INCOG – Consolidated long-range and short-term planning efforts into a single entity at INCOG to provide the public with a single point of contact for planning and zoning services.
