Innovation District Land Use and Strategic Development Plan Community Input Survey

Survey Deadline: July 7th at Midnight

 

Background

East of Oklahoma City’s Central Business District, a number of major research, medical, educational and governmental institutions geographically converge, interspersed with residential neighborhoods. Home to the Oklahoma State Capitol, Oklahoma Health Center and University of Oklahoma campuses, as well as other entities, this area is developing into a regional center of gravity for innovation and a significant driver of economic growth for Oklahoma. This emerging innovation district, its institutions and its neighborhoods each have unique needs and a stake in supporting healthy, sustained growth and development in the future.

Understanding this, and following recommendations provided by the Brookings Institute report on Oklahoma’s emerging innovation district, the Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City released an RFP (Request For Proposals) in 2017 to develop a land use and strategic development plan for the area surrounding the Innovation District and the Oklahoma State Capitol Area. The project was awarded to design firm Perkins + Will and their team in 2018.

The partner entities in this planning effort include:

  • The Alliance for Economic Development

    • The Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority

    • The Oklahoma City Redevelopment Authority

  • City of Oklahoma City / Planning Department

  • Office of Management and Enterprise Services / Capitol-Medical Center Improvement and Zoning Commission

  • Oklahoma City Innovation District

  • Presbyterian Health Foundation

  • University of Oklahoma
