WHAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN?

The comprehensive plan is both a physical plan and policy guide for Norman moving forward. It serves as a framework for future planning documents as well as the policy guide for city staff and decision makers. (Learn more about a Comprehensive Plan)   

The plan vision was developed based on input from the PlanNorman steering committee, stakeholder interviews, and the first community workshop.

HISTORY OF THE PROJECT:

The current Norman 2025 Land Use and Transportation Plan was adopted December 16, 2004. It was an update to the 2020 Land Use and Transportation Plan that was adopted in 1997. Best planning practices call for update or complete revision of the Comprehensive Plan every 10 years or if critical growth issues arise. The City of Norman has not updated the Comprehensive Plan in 12 years and the City has seen sizable growth since 2004. The population has grown from 105,336 to an estimated population of over 120,000 and the City has seen an additional 2000 acres of land developed.

Norman City Council approved the contract with MIG at its March 22, 2016 council meeting. MIG was founded in 1982 and focuses on planning, designing and sustaining environments that support human development.
