City of Tulsa Zoning Code amendments

The new City of Tulsa Zoning Code became effective on January 1, 2016. After almost a year of implementation, several items have been identified that require amendment in the new Zoning Code.   Primarily these items were identified through interactions with the public, both through the zoning and building permit processes.   There are currently two sets of proposed amendments moving through the public hearing process:

  1. Zoning Code amendments relating to driveway width, intended to allow more flexibility in seeking relief from the driveway width standards in the Zoning Code.  Amendments are proposed in Chapters 30 and 55.

These amendments have been heard and recommended for approval by the TMAPC.  They will likely be discussed by the City Council at their meetings on December 14 (10:00am and 6:00pm) and January 11, 2017 (6:00pm).

  1. Zoning Code amendments, many of which are minor in nature that reflect needed changes and clarifications identified in implementation.  These proposed amendments are located in every chapter of the Zoning Code, except for Chapters 1, 30 and 85. 

TMAPC will hold a work session to discuss these amendments on December 7, 2016 (11:30am) at 175 East 2nd Street, 10th Floor North, City Hall.  Tentatively, the proposed amendments will be heard at a TMAPC public hearing on January 4, 2017, then subsequently proceed through the City Council public hearing process.
