Criteria for City Design in Regard to Land Use Planning
The League believes that the City of Tulsa must have a comprehensive plan for growth and development. The plan should provide a mechanism for continuous updating to assure creativity and adaptability. Vision 2000 should be a part of this continuing process.
Citizens should be involved in the development, updating and application of the comprehensive plan. Continuing widespread public education is essential to both the development and support for any comprehensive plan.
It is a function of city planning to reduce barriers based on economics, race, and age.
The League supports the principles of balanced growth and believes the city can and should direct and/or redirect the growth of the city to prevent inner decay, and to use more efficiently existing facilities and accommodate future growth.
The placement and design of transportation networks and zoning districts must take into consideration the social and environmental consequences.
The location and timing of public facilities such as the transportation network, water and sewer lines, schools and parks should be used to carry out the objectives of the comprehensive plan. Cooperation between all agencies involved in planning, including the school districts, is essential.
