Our dedicated City of Tulsa planners collaborate with citizens, neighborhood and business groups, designers and engineers, as well as other City departments to assess every aspect involved in a planning project.

City planners also follow best practices of urban planning and design to develop short- and long-range plans that identify and prioritize community improvements in the public realm. All of these plans work together and identify where and how to use public funds and set the stage for private investment that fosters economic development, public safety, and quality of life.


To assist Tulsans in improving their lives, neighborhoods and community by planning for efficient and sustainable development and providing dependable, cost effective, high-quality customer services while assisting the public in achieving their construction development goals while administering the ordinances of the City of Tulsa.
