Citizens can participate in one of nine stakeholder groups contributing to the city's new comprehensive plan, planOKC. The completed plan will be used by city leaders, citizens and developers when making decisions about growth and development.
"Stakeholder groups are being formed to identify issues and make recommendations about various topics, from transportation and community appearance to parkland and the use of our natural resources," said Susan Miller, comprehensive planning division manager.
The stakeholder groups are:
" sustainOKC (future land use)
" connectOKC (transportation)
" greenOKC (environmental and natural resources)
" liveOKC (neighborhoods)
" enrichOKC (preservation, appearance & culture)
" playOKC (parks and recreation)
" strengthenOKC (economic development)
" serveOKC (public services)
" Healthy Communities Oversight Committee
Meetings will start this fall and meet monthly for six to seven months at OSU-OKC, N.W. 10th Street and Portland Avenue.
Until Oct. 1, groups also can host a "Meeting in a Box," which will provide input to city planners about specific neighborhood issues.
