Small Area Planning efforts facilitate input and collaboration from key stakeholders to develop plans in focused areas of the City of Tulsa. Small area plans include specific strategies that are tailored to the unique characteristics of targeted areas within the community. When adopted they amend the Comprehensive Plan for that area.
Like citywide plans, small area plans are reviewed and adopted first by the Tulsa Metropolitan Area Planning Commission (TMAPC), then reviewed and approved by the City Council. A Guide has been developed that explains Small Area Planning for the City of Tulsa – what it is, why we do it, how the plans are developed, how they are used – and what to expect when they are adopted and approved as local policy.

Project information and upcoming public events are available on the project webpage.
