City seeks input for Comprehensive Plan update

February 6, 2024

Public meetings to obtain input planned for February 21-22

The City of Bartlesville is seeking public input as it continues the process of updating its comprehensive plan for growth and development.

A website and survey have been launched to inform and engage the public. Additionally, two public meetings are planned for Feb. 21 and Feb. 22  to give citizens and stakeholders an opportunity to share their views on the community’s current conditions and its future.

The meetings will be held at the following locations and times:

Wednesday, Feb. 21 (6 p.m.)
Bartlesville Community Center (Community Hall)
300 S.E. Adams Blvd.

Thursday, Feb. 22 (6 p.m.)
Arvest Bank, Eastside Branch
4225 S.E. Adams Road.

The comprehensive plan, called “Endeavor 2045,” is an initiative that was identified as a priority in the Bartlesville NEXT Strategic Plan, an organizational blueprint that outlines the City’s priorities, goals and action steps into the foreseeable future.

“Endeavor 2045 will serve as the city’s guide for how we grow, progress and prosper together for the next 20-plus years,” said Larry Curtis, Community Development director. “The policies created through this planning process will guide both short-term and long-term decision making by elected officials and staff and shape guidelines for residents, businesses and other stakeholders.”

Endeavor 2045 will replace Bartlesville’s current comprehensive plan, which was adopted in 1999. The new comprehensive plan will address topics such as land use, transportation, housing, economic development, infrastructure, parks and recreation, natural resources, environmental sustainability and more, with a focus on managing growth and enhancing quality of life.

The Endeavor 2045 website includes details on the comprehensive planning process, interactive maps and other resources. The website can be found at

The community survey will gauge the public’s input on issues facing Bartlesville, including land use, housing, employment, transportation and quality of life. To take the community survey, visit
