Notice about

Accessory Dwelling Units

Notice from the

City of Oklahoma Planning Department

Dated: May 20, 2024

“Residents who live in any of Oklahoma City’s historic districts are invited to provide input on the proposed ordinance to allow accessory dwellings at a virtual meeting on June 4, 2024, at 6pm.

Register in advance for this meeting:

The City of Oklahoma City is considering allowing accessory dwellings in the City’s historic districts. The proposed change would allow attached or detached units to be built, with certain conditions, in residential zoning districts within the urban core, generally from NW 63rd Street to SW 59th Street, between I-35 and I-44. You can view the draft ordinance online at

In the proposed ordinance, conditions addressing compatibility must be met before an accessory dwelling can be built. These conditions include setting the maximum size and height of the dwelling, allowing only one accessory dwelling per lot, and prohibiting rooftop decks. Currently, accessory dwellings are only allowed on a case-by-case basis through a rezoning process which can result in inconsistent and uncertain outcomes. Importantly, the City’s existing historic preservation guidelines are not proposed to be changed and would continue to apply to exterior changes of any structure, including accessory dwellings.

Residents who cannot attend the meeting are encouraged to submit their feedback at”
