The participation of residents, property owners, businesses, and other stakeholders is essential to creating a great Comprehensive Plan and UDO for Jenks. Your input and ideas are important, and the City would like to hear what you have to say. To support public engagement, the City will be hosting a series of workshops designed to gather feedback regarding the City of Jenks.
UDO Diagnostic Report Public Meeting
On December 15 and 16, 2020, the City hosted two public meetings to provide residents, business owners, and all Jenks stakeholders the opportunity to learn about the results of the UDO Diagnostic Report and to provide feedback on the preliminary recommendations for how regulations should be updated.
Subareas Visioning Workshop
Do you have ideas about how key areas in Jenks should grow and develop in the next 15-20 years? The Subareas Visioning Workshop is your opportunity to work with your neighbors to help craft the vision for the future of Jenks. The workshop will feature an interactive exercise where participants use markers and maps to develop their ideas for the City.
Prior to the workshop, visit the Get Involved page of this website to fill out a questionnaire, personalize a map of the City, and learn about the comprehensive planning process.
