Tulsa Hills development, between 71st and 81st on US-75, hits a snag.  TMAPC wants signage in code, and better pedestrian and public transportation access.

Norman said staff members' recommendations on sign restrictions are inappropriate. He submitted several pictures of the 71st Street retail strip near U.S. 169, where large, code-violating signs and billboards are erected.

Commission member Wesley Harmon said he appreciated the pictures.

"We don't want another development that looks like that," he said. The city's sign code has not always been followed, and exceptions have been granted, "but there comes a time where we have to change."

Norman said some of INCOG's recommendations, such as bus stop cutouts in the road and a pedestrian circulation plan, penalize the project.

"That hits us as a mandatory requirement," he said. "Put it in the code. You shouldn't do it at the expense of one project on an experimental basis."

Wayne Alberty, INCOG's manager of land development services, said pedestrian access has been a part of city codes for years but probably hasn't always been enforced.
