We have several online community meetings planned for January and February (30, in fact), centered on topics including housing, neighborhoods, the update to planitulsa (the City’s comprehensive plan), and more. We hope you can join us and provide input and feedback on these issues. View the meeting dates and times below, or check out our calendar.
Infill Discussion & Neighborhood Survey Results
In August and September, we surveyed Tulsa residents on sentiments toward adding new housing in existing neighborhoods. About 1,500 people responded, and our team has been analyzing the results since then.
Please join us for an online meeting on Thursday, January 7th, 6-8 pm to see the results of that survey and talk with Tulsa Planning Office staff and Tulsa residents about infill development projects, potential policy changes, and the update to planitulsa.
For more information, contact Travis Hulse at 918-579-9452 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Missing Middle Housing Meetings
“Missing Middle” describes housing similar in size to detached homes but that contain more than one unit, such as duplexes, townhouses, tri-plexes, four-plexes, and smaller-scale apartments or condos. It’s called “Missing” because they have typically not been built since the mid-1940s, and “Middle” because size-wise they fit between detached homes and large multi-family complexes. Missing Middle Housing is not a new type of building; in fact, these house-scale buildings have existed in neighborhoods around downtown Tulsa for a hundred years or more.
In January, we are hosting a series of meetings specifically for residents of neighborhoods near downtown where we are considering changes to the zoning code that would allow Missing Middle housing to be built once more, as it was when the neighborhoods were first built out. The results of last year’s Housing Study identified several barriers to the development of this traditional type of housing, and we want to work with each neighborhood to find an approach that works best.

Vibrant Neighborhoods Partnership Workshops
The new Vibrant Neighborhoods Partnership will bring City departments, community partners, and neighborhood residents together to identify and address key issues in a set timeframe.
The program’s initial focus is to help neighborhoods that have disparately suffered from COVID-19’s economic, social, and public health effects. We aim to bring together a diversity of partners to assist neighborhood-designed efforts for local recovery and revitalization.
In February, we’re holding informational workshops for interested neighborhoods. Click a time below to register for a specific workshop:
