At a public meeting on Thursday, July 11th, the University of Oklahoma’s Institute for Quality Communities will present recommended changes to enhance a corridor of Oklahoma City’s Western Avenue from NW 41st Street to NW 46th Street. The meeting will be held at the Westminster Middle School auditorium at 600 NW 44th Street from 6PM until 7:30PM.
The Institute for Quality Communities was hired by the City of Oklahoma City “to conduct a study of placemaking features and urban design policy in the heart of the Western Avenue urban commercial district”.
In the course of the study, the Institute for Quality Communities conducted an online survey, held interviews with stakeholders, neighborhood and business associations, gathered street measures, collected parking and pedestrian counts, held a community charrette and conducted a walkability workshop along the corridor lead by the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute’s Dan Burden. The results of these efforts as well as a discussion of funding options, a question and answer session and polling will be included in the July 11th public meeting.
