(June 13, 2008) - People interested in contributing their ideas about future development and planning in northeast Oklahoma City are invited to a community meeting on Thursday, June 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Metro Tech Business Conference Center, 1900 Springlake Drive.
The meeting kicks off the Northeast Sector Planning process, led by Oklahoma City’s Planning Department. Topics include how rural and urban land in northeast Oklahoma City should be used, the roadway system, water, sewer, parks, recreational opportunities and police and fire protection.
“We want input from everyone from residents and business owners to neighborhood association leaders and land developers to create a vision for the Northeast Sector,” said Susan Miller, Comprehensive Planning Manager. “The decisions made will provide a roadmap for the community.”
The Northeast Sector includes 101.6 square miles bound by I-235 east to the City limits. Arcadia Lake, the North Canadian River and the I-35 and I-44 interchange are a few of the locations in the sector.
At the meeting, participants can volunteer to take part in a Plan Team. The team will meet every two weeks for five months to develop the Northeast Sector Draft Plan.
Plans for the Southwest and Southeast Sectors have already been adopted.
Information on the sector and feedback forms can be found at www.okc.gov/planning/nesector. For more information, call Kelly Driscoll at 297-1640.
