  • 24. Plan Chapter: Land Use The Building Blocks Tulsa’s future land uses will be broadly organized under five main building blocks • Downtown • Corridors • New Centers • New Neighborhoods • Existing Neighborhoods
  • 25. Plan Chapter: Land Use Downtown • Downtown Tulsa will be the place to see a concert, go shopping, or have a night out on the town • Plentiful office space and a great transit system will make it easy for employers to serve their clients and attract great talent • Higher density housing in condominiums, apartments, live-work lofts, and town homes
  • 26. Plan Chapter: Land Use Boulder Avenue
  • 27. Plan Chapter: Land Use Corridors Corridors serve as both travel routes and destinations High-capacity Arterial Streets • Commercial corridors • Auto-dominated • Multimodal arterials Main Streets • Lower volume • Serve neighbors and visitors alike
  • 28. Plan Chapter: Land Use Corridors High-capacity Arterial Streets • Will be upgraded to accommodate cars, transit, bikes and pedestrians • Key centers will have more pedestrian and transit amenities • New mixed-use development will also serve existing surrounding neighborhoods
  • 29. Plan Chapter: Land Use Corridors Main Streets • Narrower streets, generally lower traffic volume • Park once and walk to multiple destinations • Linear neighborhood centers • Attractive, interesting places with wide sidewalks and on- street parking
  • 30. Plan Chapter: Land Use New Centers Eastgate Metroplex Example • Enhanced by transit services • Add retail, grocery stores, mixed-use residential to enrich the area • Build mix of housing types on surrounding vacant land
  • 31. Plan Chapter: Land Use Existing Neighborhoods • Are one of Tulsa’s strongest assets, and will be preserved • Are considered areas of stability • Most enhancements will be through improvements to surrounding main streets and arterials • These will add more amenities and improve connectivity to the rest of the city
  • 32. Plan Chapter: Transportation Transportation • Tulsans will have a wide variety of transportation choices for getting around town. • Drive, bike, or catch a quick and reliable bus or streetcar to just about anywhere. • The network of transit options, large arterials, pedestrian- friendly neighborhoods and employment centers will result in one of the safest, most efficient transportation systems in the country.
  • 33. Plan Chapter: Transportation Transit • Emphasis will be on building a strong system with continuous improvement to build support and ridership • Focus on 2-3 key corridors that serve Downtown, North and East Tulsa • As ridership grows, expand frequent service across the grid to support new centers and neighborhoods
  • 34. Plan Chapter: Transportation Highways and Freight • Freight access should be improved through investments to disentangle it from local traffic • Utilize the Gilcrease Expressway Extension to an intermodal hub northeast of Tulsa International Airport • Investing in city streets and arterials and expanding accessibility will also help relieve highway congestion
  • 35. Plan Chapter: Transportation Walking and Biking • Will make many improvements to existing neighborhoods and along main streets and corridors • Continue to expand Tulsa’s existing network of paths and trails • Bicycle travel, especially during good weather, make up a significant share of transportation trips
  • 36. Matching Street Design to Land Use One size does not fit all Streets should respond to the land uses around them
  • 37. Plan Chapter: Transportation Smart Parking • Tulsans will still, by and large, drive their cars • City’s approach will be to optimize the efficiency of parking, instead of requiring too much • New development will be allowed to utilize on-street parking, and the city will plan for parking districts with shared lots • Mixed use parking garages with retail on the ground floor blend in well with surrounding buildings
  • 38. Plan Chapter: Economic Development Economic Development • Tulsa will need a vigorous and strategic approach to economic development • Coordinated with land use, housing, transportation and the factors that affect residents’ quality of life like parks, open space and education. • Tulsa must nurture its entrepreneurial enterprises, ensure room for growth, and be an attractive place to move or establish a business
  • 39. Plan Chapter: Housing Housing • The PLANiTULSA forecast and housing analysis highlighted the need for some additional housing choice • 40,000 household goad with diverse mix • Most of Tulsa’s housing stock is and will continue to be single-family homes • But there will be many households who will prefer townhomes, condos and apartments (especially downtown)
  • 40. Plan Chapter: Parks Parks • Most Tulsans will live near a park and will be able to walk or bike there • Schools and parks will make use of the same facilities • Downtown will feature urban parks with fountains, playgrounds, and other amenities to bring nature into the city • PLANiTULSA will coordinate with the 2009 City of Tulsa Master Parks Plan now in production
  • 41. Plan Chapter: Open Space Open Space • Tulsa’s natural environments – waterways, floodplains and open space – provide a break from the hustle and bustle of living in an urban environment. • Tulsa will work to bring nature to the city, and connect Tulsans with the Arkansas River, Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area, and other open spaces • Tulsa will continue to be a leader in integrating stormwater management with development
  • 42. Plan Chapter: Sustainability Sustainability and the Built Environment In the energy-constrained world of the future, Tulsa will be a major leader in creating high quality places for people to live, work, and play … but with a small footprint on the environment. • Building design will emphasize energy and water efficiency and make use of renewable building materials • Continue and enhance the storm water and hazard mitigation plans of the City
  • 43. Next Steps October • Public meeting – Vision Presentation and Feedback - October 29th • Draft Land Use, Transportation, Economics and Housing Policies/Chapters to staff – end of October November • Remaining plan components (Implementation and Strategies) drafted - end of November • Brief TMAPC and Council on Vision and draft policies • Public forum for Vision input – interactive meeting with automated feedback – November 17 December • Citizens’ Team – December 16 • TMAPC Work Session and City Council briefing on final Vision, policies and strategies January • Draft Comprehensive Plan presented to TMAPC and Strategic Plan to City Council week of January 11th • TMAPC work sessions on Comprehensive Plan • City Council briefing on Comprehensive Plan and Strategic Plan February • TMAPC public hearings on Comprehensive Plan • TMAPC action on Comprehensive Plan • City Council briefings and work sessions on Comprehensive Plan and Strategic Plan March/April • City Council public hearings and action on Comprehensive Plan and Strategic Plan
  • 44. Strategic Plan Preview How We Will Achieve Our Vision While creating the vision is a critically important step, effective implementation will be the measure of its success. • Remove barriers to desired actions • Coordinate public investments • Create new strategic partnerships
  • 45. Strategic Plan Preview Proposed Strategies Specific implementation strategies to reshape fundamental aspects of Tulsa’s approach to land use, transportation, and economic development will build on and sustain the vision. • Step 1: Revise the Zoning Code • Step 2: Create a Redevelopment Strategy • Step 3: Develop a New Transportation Strategy • Step 4: Conduct Neighborhood and Small Area Planning in Key Areas • Step 5: Develop PLANiTULSA Innovative Buildings as Demonstration Projects • Step 6: Organize Planning and Development Functions for Implementation
  • 46. Achieving the Vision: Strategies Step 1: Revise the Zoning Code Update the Code to align with the goals of the Plan Tulsa’s zoning code should: • Be Easy to Use • Allow More Diverse Building Types • Enable Innovative Parking Solutions • Align Development Incentives with Goals of Plan
  • 47. Zoning Code Issues An example from Brookside 31st Street 31st and Peoria Peoria
  • 48. Plans and Implementation District Plan 6: Brookside Special Districts Northern Brookside Business Area Pg 6-11 The Brookside area is an urban village with its own special identity, sense of community, pattern of development and unique characteristics. The protection, preservation and enhancement of this urban village are of paramount importance. There are certain design policies and standards appropriate for improvements in the study area…
  • 49. Plans and Implementation An additional plan for the area: Brookside Infill Neighborhood Detailed Implementation Plan (2002) In general, this plan addresses: • Public realm and streetscape design • Infill development design
  • 50. Plans and Implementation Public realm and streetscape design Plan seeks to preserve pedestrian- oriented and high-quality urban design character. Outlines Policies for • sidewalks and pedestrian crossings • street furniture • lighting and street trees It establishes a “look and feel” that will serve the neighborhood well, if implemented
  • 51. Plans and Implementation The plan does recommend creating a shared parking facility in the district. But the District 6 Plan, which is also in effect, states that new development or reuse of buildings must provide off-street parking as required by the code
  • 52. Zoning Code Issues Brooks Restaurant and Bar 11,000 square foot dining establishment Photo: www.brooksrestaurant.com
  • 53. Zoning Code Issues Currently, the restaurant shares a lot with a bank next door
  • 54. Zoning Code Issues …But according to the existing code, a developer would have to assemble over an acre of land for the restaurant alone 48,530 Square Feet
  • 55. Zoning Code Issues If built as a mixed-use project with 20, 2- bedroom apartments above* …A developer would have to assemble over 1½ acres 68,416 Square Feet of land *(2 parking spaces / unit)
  • 56. Zoning Code Issues Vision Map: Cherry Street (15th Street)
  • 57. Zoning Code Issues An example from Cherry Street and Quincy There are three establishments in this building, allowed by right Offices, studios, support services Aquarian Age Massage Shopping goods and services Peace of Mind Bookstore Bar or Tavern Kilkenny’s Irish Pub
  • 58. Zoning Code Issues …Currently, the building is served by a lot to the rear
  • 59. Zoning Code Issues …But a developer would have to assemble an 30,256 square feet of land 30,256 for parking if building it Square today Feet
  • 60. Zoning Code Issues If the top story were to be converted to ten, 2- bedroom apartments* 36,756 Square …A developer would have Feet to assemble an 36,756 square feet of land for parking *(2 parking spaces / unit)
  • 61. Zoning Code Issues Car Wash • no parking spaces are required
  • 62. Zoning Code Issues Mini Storage • 1 parking space per 5,000 square feet of storage
  • 63. Zoning Code Issues An Example from East Pine and North Peoria Peoria East Pine
  • 64. Zoning Code Issues Our Vision for Tulsa: East Pine and North Peoria Revitalized neighborhood and mixed use center
  • 65. Zoning Code Issues What is most likely is that this project would have obtain a zone change to PUD For a key revitalization area, this raises barriers and reduces certainty for the developer and neighborhood
  • 66. Modified Zoning Code Chapters
  • 67. Use a Combination of Graphics and Standards
  • 68. Design Zoning Code around Building Prototypes
  • 69. Shared Parking Districts Requirements often exceed demand Required Minimum Parking Shared Parking Utilization Parking Spaces Used Parking Spaces 5000 5,000 4000 Required 4,000 3000 Hotel 3,000 Hotel 2000 2,000 Office Office 1000 1,000 0 Residential - Residential Retail Retail 3: PM 5: PM 7: PM 9: PM :0 M 1: PM 1: AM 3: PM 5: PM 7: PM 9: PM :0 M 7: AM 9: AM :0 M AM 1: PM 1: AM AM 7: AM 9: AM :0 M 11 0 P 11 0 P 11 0 A 11 A 00 00 00 00 0 00 00 00 00 0 0 00 00 00 0 00 00 00 00 Restaurant Restaurant 0 0 0 5: 5: Time of Day Time of Day

  • 71. Achieving the Vision: Strategies Step 2: Create a Redevelopment Strategy • Forge a redevelopment future for Tulsa – Broaden the range of housing options – Create new kinds of workspaces – Make efficient use of existing infrastructure • Reclaim and reinvest in – Downtown Tulsa – Urban corridors – Former industrial sites – Struggling urban neighborhoods – New town centers
  • 72. Achieving the Vision: Strategies Step 3: Develop a New Transportation Strategy Making the transportation-land use connection • Create Livable Networks • Improve Transportation Modeling Techniques • Manage Transportation Assets • Use Context Sensitive Solutions • Modernize Transportation Funding
  • 73. Achieving the Vision: Strategies • Create livable networks – Use Tulsa’s legacy of a great grid network – Rethink emphasis on moving cars – Focus on helping people get where they want to go and serving surrounding communities – Transform corridors into places as well as transportation facilities
  • 74. Context Sensitive Solutions
  • 75. Context Sensitive Solutions
  • 76. Achieving the Vision: Strategies Step 4: Conduct Neighborhood and Small Area Planning in Key Areas Neighborhood planning is key to redevelopment • Redevelopment will need to be carefully designed to work with existing communities • Each plan should have measurable performance indicators and include funding and implementation plans • Compatible zoning and parking solutions should be adopted in conjunction with the plan
  • 77. Achieving the Vision: Strategies Step 5: Develop Key PLANiTULSA Prototypes as Demonstration Projects • Begin with projects that have a high likelihood of success #2 • Engage the development community #1 #3 and set up for success before tackling more difficult projects • Don’t try for home runs – start with base hits • Work to establish a development process that will enable similar projects to be built by the private sector
  • 78. Mixed Use Residential & Retail (4 Story) $16 per foot
  • 79. Achieving the Vision: Strategies Step 6: Organize Planning and Development Functions for Implementation Our ambitious agenda for change requires a high degree of coordination and skill • Organization matters! • Tulsa’s planning and development functions are spread between many agencies and departments • Consider consolidation or closer coordination between planning, zoning, permits, economic development, capital planning, redevelopment
  • 80. Vision Land Use Plan Stability and Change Map Small Area Plans Zoning and Implementation – Investment – Public Private Partnerships – Demonstration Projects – Building Prototypes – Return on Investment – Shared Parking
  • 81. Small Area Plans Zoning and Implementation – Investment – Public Private Partnerships – Demonstration Projects – Building Prototypes – Return on Investment – Shared Parking
  • 82. The Future The Future Is in Our Hands The PLANiTULSA process illustrates our vision in the future. A consensus vision, based on input from thousands of participating Tulsans show how the Tulsa of tomorrow will offer more choices and opportunities if we take action today. Capturing our vision was the easy part. Making that dream a reality will require Leadership, Dedication, Hard Work, and Cooperation among people with different perspectives, opinions and expertise. Together Tulsa can set things in motion – we can accomplish amazing results that will move our city toward a bright future.
