A public hearing will be held before the Tulsa Metropolitan Area Planning Commission (TMAPC) Wednesday, December 18, 2019 to consider an amendment to the following Section of the Tulsa Metropolitan Area Subdivision and Development Regulations (“Subdivision and Development Regulations”):
The proposed amendment moves the requirements for sidewalks within the City of Tulsa to a standalone ordinance in Title 35, Section 602, Tulsa Revised Ordinances that defines both requirements and relief for sidewalks. Sidewalk requirements for Tulsa County would remain in the Subdivision & Development Regulations.
Moving the sidewalk requirements for the City of Tulsa to a standalone ordinance would allow the City of Tulsa to create a new program for sidewalks that would allow property owners in areas identified as “non-critical” to pay a fee to the City instead of constructing a new sidewalk. These funds would be collected by the City and then allocated within specified service areas to priority sidewalk projects (for instance, connecting nearby schools to the sidewalk network).
Anyone interested in this matter may submit written comments or appear at the public hearing and speak in support of or in opposition to the proposed amendment.
