In the summer of 2007, the City of Norman selected the firm of Post, Buckley, Schuh & Jernigan, Inc. (PBS&J), an engineering, planning and architecture firm, to lead in the study and development of a plan for stormwater management and greenbelt/trails corridor planning. Joining PBS&J in this effort was Vieux, Inc., a local engineering technology firm, as well as Halff Associates that focused on developing a greenbelt/trail master plan. Educating the public on stormwater and greenbelt/trail issues, obtaining input and information from the public on these issues, and working closely with the city staff were of utmost importance and key elements for a successful project. The primary goals of the study and subsequent overall plan were to gain a clear understanding of how stormwater and greenbelt/trail corridors impact our city as well as to develop a plan to manage those elements of our environment in a way that they become resources in building a better Norman.
The City of Norman’s Storm Water Master Plan includes recommendations related to Stormwater Phase II requirements, a Trails/Greenway Master Plan, new floodplain mapping, capital improvement projects, proposed water quality enhancements, drainage easement issues, and financing options. The City of Norman adopted Resolution No. R-1011-120 , a resolution adopting the Storm Water Master Plan Final Report, on June 28th, 2011.
