Our city includes many individuals, perspectives, and landscapes, all of which contribute to the mosaic of Oklahoma City. planokc is based on an extensive community input process, which asked our diverse residents to envision an economically, socially, civically, and environmentally healthy city of the future. Throughout this process, city planners complemented community perspectives with quantifiable data about demographics, land use patterns, and development patterns. This section summarizes the public engagement process and the results of those efforts.
The planokc process was designed to provide the time needed for thoughtful public engagement and an understanding of community values and priorities. It is a plan of the people, whose sense of ownership and active participation are essential to successful implementation and community stewardship.
