The City of Norman’s Historic District Commission will host two public input meetings regarding proposed revisions to the Historic Preservation Guidelines. Residents of the three designated Historic Districts, as well as interested citizens, are encouraged to attend the meetings to provide feedback to the Commission regarding the proposed revisions.

The Historic District Commission determined in July of 2019 that the 2008 Historic Preservation Guidelines were in need of updating.   Since that time, the Commission along with assistance from staff and a consultant have held a series of study sessions working on revisions to the Preservation Guidelines. The Commission recently finalized the Draft 2021 Historic Preservation Guidelines and is now hosting public input meetings regarding the final proposed revisions.  

Citizens have two opportunities to provide input on the revised Historic Preservation Guidelines. Meetings will be held on Monday, July 19, at 5:30 p.m. and Monday, July 26, at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, Municipal Building, 201 W. Gray Street.  Both meetings will have the same format with a staff presentation of proposed revisions to the Historic District Guidelines, followed by public comment. The Draft 2021 Preservation Guidelines may be downloaded from the Historic Preservation webpage by following the link at:   https://www.normanok.gov/residents-visitors.  A public feedback button is also offered on this page for those who are unable to attend the meetings in person.
