The City of Wagoner is currently working on the comprehensive plan for Wagoner. Re:Imagine Wagoner is a 20 year development plan for the City of Wagoner. The planning process began in October of 2016 in the form of a community wide survey distributed online, the newspaper, and utility bills. Later, a steering committee was formed to direct the form and contents of the plan.

There are 8 key elements identified in the plan:

  • Land Use
  • Parks & Recreation
  • Transportation
  • Historic Preservation
  • Housing
  • City Facilities
  • Economic Development
  • City Governance

After the elements were defined, City Staff compiled information and produced the Existing Conditions Report, which can be found below. The report includes analysis of demographics, land uses, community outreach (community survey/community input event), dilapidated structures survey, and a sidewalk inventory. The report was constructed to inform the steering committee and help facilitate the development of goals and objectives for each elements listed above.

Currently the steering committee is working hard to develop goals and objectives for the comprehensive plan. Once those are compiled, an implementation plan will be created to ensure the goals and objectives will be met. Before the comprehensive plan is brought before council for adoption there will also be public hearings to allow for public comment on the entire plan.
