Pearl zoning plan gets a public airing

A plan to adopt zoning changes in an older area near downtown Tulsa creates controversy. A lot of people turn out to debate a proposed form-based code for the Pearl District. The code focuses on developing dense urban areas into pedestrian and mass transit friendly neighborhoods, discouraging the use of cars. Jamie Jamieson, chairman of the Pearl’s urban design committee, says change is needed to revitalize the district.

Planning Commissioners will hold a May 16th work session to discuss the issue further.
