I don't know much about these kinds of documents, so I'm tossing this into the forum for those with more experience.  Owasso is developing a corridor overlay along both sides of US169 from 86th Street to 116th, and it includes language like this:

5. The following By-Right and Specific Use Permit uses shall be prohibited in the US-169 North Overlay District.
Industrial Uses in the IH and IM District
Any new agricultural uses or businesses
Chick hatchery
Halfway house
Landfill
Bindery
Juvenile Delinquency Center
Pre-Release Center
Animal and Poultry Raising
Power Plant
Sexually-oriented businesses
Bottled Gas Sales
Outdoor Kennels (not a part of veterinary or grooming business)
Taxidermist
Cemetery
Oil Well Drilling and Cleaning Establishment
Fuel oil sales
Race tracks (auto dog, horse)
Mini-storage warehouses
Truck stop
Shooting range (outdoor)
Drag strip
Outdoor storage of any kind as the principal use
Portable building sales

6. The following uses shall be permitted with the issuance of a Specific Use Permit, subject to compliance with the provisions of this section.

The full document is at: http://www.cityofowasso.com/community_development/US169_Corridor_Overlay_District.pdf

Now, as I said, I don't know much about these documents, but I think this would rule out my idea for a Japanese sushi/massage/porn shop.  There are some truly amazing uses for octupi.  Just sayin'.

Seriously, though, this overlay covers parking, architecture and much, much more.  Is that typical?  Could someone give this a cursory read?

I don't know anything about it, but I DID grow up in Owasso from the mid 1980's to mid 1990's, and I think they've finally realized something that I noticed the entire time I lived there, and especially now when I go back - the face of Owasso is the Highway 169 corridor, and it is UGLY.   Maybe they're trying to do something about that.

Michael, I truly wish I'd thought of that!  And you have to know that I'll steal it and use it.
