This article was archived on 12/21/2018

The Berryhill Land Use Plan is available for public review online at  http://www.tmapc.org/current_agenda.html

The Tulsa Metropolitan Area Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on Dec. 19, at 1:30 p.m. in the City Council Chamber of City Hall, 175 E. 2nd St., to consider adoption of the plan. Citizens who would like to comment about the plan may speak at this meeting.

The Berryhill Land Use Plan was developed during six months in 2018 through collaborative efforts of the Berryhill Citizens Advisory Team and other members of the Berryhill community, the City of Tulsa and Indian Nations Council of Governments (INCOG). The plan has specific recommendations for land use to help guide future decisions within the defined plan area.

The Berryhill plan area is 4.15 square miles, bounded on the north by the Arkansas River; and on the south along West 51st Street South, excluding some properties within Sapulpa city limits; and is bounded on the east along South 49th West Avenue to include some east abutting properties; and on the west along South 65th West Avenue including properties west of 65th West Avenue that abut Chandler Park and Sand Springs city limits. See https://www.cityoftulsa.org/media/7141/boundarymapincog.pdf for a map of this area.

Land use plans are intended to provide a 10- to 20-year vision of future aspirations for neighborhoods and are developed primarily through the input of property owners and area stakeholders.

Land use plans are to be adopted as amendments to the comprehensive plan and may be implemented through zoning changes and other regulatory controls that allow for desired development patterns identified in the comprehensive plan.
