With a growing population of over 117,000, Norman is part of the dynamic Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area, which has over one million residents. We are the third largest city in Oklahoma and the largest city within Cleveland County. We have a healthy employment rate, strong neighborhoods, quality schools and a nationally recognized institute of higher education, the University of Oklahoma. In order to maintain our high livability and continue attracting quality employers and skilled residents we need to update our Norman 2025 Plan to prepare us for the next twenty years. Our new comprehensive plan will help us better plan for our future.
As our community continues to grow we will face increased challenges related to land use, housing, infrastructure and environmental protection. PlanNorman will help us address all these challenges by identifying features that will improve and enhance our community’s assets – including our great parks, arts and cultural venues, our historic and existing neighborhoods, and our connection to the University and surrounding communities.
