An open house public meeting about land use planning for the Berryhill area will be held Monday, Aug. 27, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Berryhill Fire Station, 5911 W 41st St. At this meeting, the City of Tulsa and Indian Nations Council of Governments (INCOG) will present draft materials and collect input from residents and stakeholders. The Berryhill Citizen Advisory Team, representing area stakeholders, also will attend the meeting to answer general questions about the progress of the Berryhill Land Use plan.
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. Map of the 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.
Residents and stakeholders may drop in anytime between 6 and 7:30 p.m. There will be no formal presentation, and light refreshments will be served. Additional project announcements and materials will be posted throughout the process online.
