High Density Housing Community Dialog Series

The Community Planning and Transportation Committee, chaired by Carol Dillingham, will be hosting a series of Community Dialogues starting in this month. I will post more details and you can check with the City Clerks Office.

Here it is! 

The City of Norman announces upcoming dates, times and locations for a public discussion series regarding city-wide high density regulations. At the May 23rd Community Planning and Transportation Committee meeting, members of the committee discussed the best process to engage citizens in high density development discussion.  From information and discussion from that meeting, six public meetings will be held between June 11 and Aug. 30 to gather public input regarding a number of factors involved in high density development. Additional public meetings may be scheduled, if needed.


The public discussion series will begin with a general orientation and introduction to high density, and then include further meetings regarding high density location and compatibility; mixed use and height regulations; parking, traffic and infrastructure; design criteria; and will conclude with a wrap-up meeting. The initial meeting will be held in the Norman City Council Chambers at 201 West Gray St. and, later, at the Conference Center at the NormanPublic High School at 911 W. Main St.


The information and feedback from these meetings will later be used by the City to help guide future policies.


Citizens wishing to stay informed about the meetings are encouraged to visit the City of Norman website and sign-up for the email list for updates specifically regarding the high density public discussion series. Information for each meeting will be posted on the City’s website, along with materials and presentations from each meeting.


Anyone interested in high density development is invited to attend these meetings. Updates will be available at www.ci.norman.ok.us, the City’s Facebook site and the City’s Twitter account.
