The Draft Downtown Residential Overlay District (DROD) Design Standards project has provided an opportunity for community and stakeholder discussion about how to best encourage high quality, context-sensitive design in and surrounding the Rose District.
The project will ultimately result in prescriptive design standards for development that are integrated with the existing zoning ordinance. Based on community and stakeholder input received since December 2016 and analysis and review by City staff and the consultant team, the City of Broken Arrow is pleased to present the first draft of the Design Standards for public review.
The draft document provides a preliminary organization and structure for the DROD Design Standards. It establishes intent and design objectives for future development on properties within the project area, which is bounded by Kenosha, 9th Street, Elm Place and Houston Street. The concepts, objectives and standards in this document represent a "first cut” of the standards for community review. Reviewers of the document are encouraged to consider the overall intent and approach to the Design Standards, but are also welcome to provide detailed comments on specific content.

The project will include a variety of opportunities for community members and stakeholders to provide input on the Design Standards prior to adoption by the City Council.
Community Workshop #2
The City of Broken Arrow will hold a community meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31 at Central on Main, 210 N. Main Street, to present preliminary downtown residential design guidelines.
Community Workshop #2, to be conducted in an Open House format, presents an opportunity to learn about the Draft Design Standards, including design objectives for different parts of the study area, the types of buildings that will be encouraged and what design topics are addressed. Staff and members of the consultant team will be on hand to answer questions and talk with community members and participants will be asked for their feedback on the preliminary direction of the Design Standards. Please join us at this important workshop and make your voice heard!
At the first community workshop in this process, held in December 2016, participants were invited to share their vision on how the various parts of downtown should develop moving forward. Input from that workshop and additional stakeholder interviews has resulted in the creation of a draft of the Downtown Residential Overlay District (DROD) design standards.
After these Draft Design Standards are revised based on community input, the next draft will be presented to the Planning Commission and City Council for their review. These hearings will be open to the public, and public comment opportunities will be provided. Once scheduled, these meetings will be announced through the City’s website and social media.
