The Steering Committee for the AIM Norman (Area & Infrastructure Master Plan) was appointed at the 8/22/23 City Council meeting. The Kick-Off Meeting for the Steering Committee will be on September 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Development Center, 225 N. Webster. There will be a joint meeting of the Planning Commission and the City Council on September 14 at 5:30 p.m., also in the Great Hall of the Development Center, 225 N. Webster. Additional information and updates regarding this citizen-led process will be forthcoming.
The creation of documents intended to guide cooperative strategies that will responsibly advance the Norman community will soon be underway, as Norman City Council has approved associated agreements and schedules for the 2045 Norman Comprehensive Plan. Facets of the long-range plan include:
- Comprehensive Land Use Plan
- Housing Market Analysis & Affordability Strategy
- Comprehensive Transportation Plan Update
- Stormwater Master Plan Update
- Water Master Plan Update
- Wastewater Master Plan
The scope of work will be carried out by RDG Planning & Design, Inc. in close partnership with City staff and is expected to span 16 months, led through insights and engagement of Norman community members. The proposal process to update given plans began in Fall 2022.
“We encourage all Normanites to take part in this process, as the creation of this document will provide a holistic approach to the planning and development of our future as a community,” said Jane Hudson, Planning & Community Development Director. “An essential element to the development of a successful plan is always citizen participation and input, and we are looking forward to engaging with our neighbors throughout this project.”
At the direction of City Council, a Steering Committee will be selected in weeks to come. Updates, to include opportunities for the public to provide valuable feedback and ideas, will be made available at normanok.gov as the initiative moves forward.
“This plan is a plan that belongs to the community so we are eager to collaborate with residents and stakeholders as we create a collective vision during this process,” said City Manager Darrel Pyle.
