How should Oklahoma County grow? Take the survey.

Do you envision a lot of development springing up along the new turnpike? How about the countryside filling up with manufacturing or residential areas? Oklahoma County wants to find out what you think. The same company, Freese & Nichols, that worked on a master plan for towns in Eastern Oklahoma County like Luther, Jones, Nicoma Park and Harrah, is now working on a plan for Oklahoma County officials.

Oklahoma County is updating its zoning and subdivision regulations and they want your input!  The regulations govern future development in regards to land use types, lot sizes, water and sewer provisions, signs, parking, landscaping, and related development considerations.  Note that the County’s regulations apply only to the unincorporated portions of the County (i.e., the regulations do not apply within any city limits).  The survey will be available through September 13.

They are seeking your input if you live in the unincorporated areas of Oklahoma County. One survey questions asks to rank your top five issues out of a list that includes:

  • road maintenance
  • drainage and flooding
  • sustainable development
  • water supply and quality
  • sidewalks
  • rural feel
  • large lots
  • tree preservation
    (choose 5)

The brief survey always asks participants to rate things about whether economic development should be limited or wide open; or if more residential areas should open up or preserve agricultural areas.

Regarding the new turnpike, the survey asks whether residents who live, work or go to school in the unincorporated areas of Oklahoma County want to see the area along the new EOC turnpike remain agricultural or go all out for various businesses.

The survey does not address public safety such as county patrols or fire protection.

  1. Survey didn’t work for me. All I wanted to know if Reno and Luther Rd is rezoning? Horse farm for sale across the road says “possible commercial”.
