Planning Commission works on comp By Moira K. Wiley municipality to prepare these was excited about working with be involved in tl Journal Staff Writer The Perkins Planning Commis- sion recently met with Charles Warnken, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor in the Division of Regional and City Planning at University of Oklahoma, to discuss partnering to prepare and complete the City's com- prehensive plan. Warnken undertook the job as part of a studio class that will take place during the fall semes- ter at OU. Students will be seen around the City taking notes and photos starting around Sept. 1. City officials went in search of someone to help complete the comprehensive plan when it became known that it was going to be mandated by the state that the City has one in place by 2004. The partnership would involve "preparation and completion of a number of municipal docu- ments that seek to manage and guide future urban development in Perkins." Each fall, the Divi- sion of Regional and City Plan- ning prepares a Comprehensive Plan for a city in Oklahoma. The work is done through a formal studio setting, where faculty and students partner with a documents. The work has been carried out for several years with the most recent comprehensive plans being completed for Pied- mont and Poteau. A comprehensive plan is "a blueprint for growth for a city that formally states a municipality's development goals and is meant to provide a working guide for elected and appointed officials, as well as citizens to follow." The plan is meant to provide "a broad policy framework and is implemented through a number of distinct but inter-related documents, typically including zoning ordinances, subdivision regula- tions and capital improvement programs." The plan generally includes future land use map and written policy guidelines broken into sections for various aspects of urban governance including land use, housing, transportation/ circulation, economic develop- ment, municipal infrastructure and environmental issues. Warnken began meeting informally with Planning Com- mission Chairperson Mel Miller in September to discuss the proj- ect and he told the Board that he Perkins. "What you've already com- pleted on your own, like zoning ordinances and goal and vision- ing statements, puts you ahead of a lot of other communities," Warnken said. "And, it shows that you really want to go for- ward." Based on initial conversa- tion with the Board and City Manager Jack Rosson during the meeting, Warnken priori- tized the separate aspects that will be addressed in the com- prehensive plan, however, he said these could change. These included land use including criti- cal structures and flood zones; public works and infrastructure, especially the water and sewer system; and taking care of exist- ing structures, especially Main Street as it could be a real draw for tourism. Specific priorities were placed in the following order: Land Use/Infrastructure, Economic Development and Housing. "It's also irhportant that we look at the mandate issues to see what we need to do to meet those," Warnken said. "It's even more important that the public gets involved.
