Dave Strader, 5/10/2012 - 4:20pm "Bravo Bill Leighty! For I.N.C.O.G. to deny that they were actively involved in the planning and writing the extended regulating plan for the Pearl District Formed Based Code is horse hockey. The Pearl District planning team was there with I.N.C.O.G. doing the work. We met every week sometimes twice a week for over a year with I.N.C.O.G. staff. I.N.C.O.G. was very much aware and involved in this extended plan. As long as I.N.C.O.G. continues to deny involvement in the expanded Pearl District Form Based Code, they are actively delaying and denying the will of thousands of Tulsans who overwhelmingly supported PlaniTulsa. We need to wake up! Our cities future depends on what happens next. The COT is the last place in the U.S. that outsources it's zoning to a vendor. Many Tulsan's think it's high time to stop. The COT is quite willing, ready and able do it's own zoning. Not to mention the very large amount of money that could be saved by doing so. I.N.C.O.G. charges the city around one million dollars a year to do the job. Or should I say, NOT do the job. Until we as citizens speak out and stop this kind of blatant disregard for ethics, PlaniTulsa and city planning as a whole, then there is no need for us to waist our time on small area plans. It's a joke and a shame for all of Tulsa."
