On December 6, 2021 the City of Claremore adopted a reinvigorated Unified Development Code that will allow creativity in developments around the City and especially in the identified Special Districts. The identified Special Districts are: Downtown, Old Town, Will Rogers, and West Bend. The previously adopted Comprehensive Plan called out for more innovative housing solutions for the Claremore and a new Unified Development Code was envisioned to implement this important goal. Place Strategies, Velocity Group, and MBL Planning were able to bring together an innovative approach that included a shift to a more form based framework and a vetted pattern book of development types that could incentivize more creative and innovative building types.
