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.
• Auctioneer
• Auto wash
• Agricultural implement sales
• Appliance store and repair
• Woodworking shop
• Aircraft sales
• Boat and Recreational Vehicle sales

• Golf Driving range
• Truck rentals
• Monument sales

• Cabinet Maker
• Plastic material sales
• Construction equipment sales
• Go-kart track
• Auto Sales (5 Acre Maximum Parcel Size)
• Auto Rental
• Motor vehicle repair
• Retail greenhouse
• Janitorial service Vending sales and service
• Exterminating services
• Bus station
• Any retail use with primarily outdoor sales
• Park and ride lots
• Motorcycle Sales


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.
