Second Comprehensive Plan Meeting Tuesday March 28th

The second of three public meetings being held to discuss the City's Comprehensive Plan will be held on Tuesday, March 28, 2006 from 7-9pm at All Souls Episcopal Church in Nichols Hills.

The City of Nichols Hills has partnered with the University of Oklahoma, College of Architecture to prepare a Comprehensive Plan. Approximately 150 people attended the first public meeting pursuant to the Nichols Hills 2020 Comprehensive Plan Project. The meeting was held on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 from 7-9pm at the Wildcat Café on the Chesapeake Energy Corporation campus.

An introduction of what a comprehensive planning is and an overview of the project was introduced. The majority of the evening was spent on a citizen participation exercise designed to elicit priorities for the project. Citizens were asked to generate a list of their top three concerns to be addressed with in the community planning process. These include:

The creation of city policy and guidelines to manage the process of residential and commercial redevelopment

  • Traffic calming and mitigation, with road conditions being the top concern
  • Infrastructure concerns, notably water quality and the cost of municipal services
  • The visual character of new development, both in residential and retail/commercial areas largely led the discussion.

Residents have a variety of ways to become involved in this project and your participation is essential to a plan that represents your vision for the community. A community survey has been distributed and citizen participation worksheets, providing residents a direct chance to voice their concerns, will be available at the public meetings.

We hope to see you March 28th.
