City Blueprint is now an approved plan of the City of Oak Ridge!

    • Updates and information for the plan and opportunities to engage in community and city planning are now found at OakRidgeBlueprint.info

On May 13, 2019, the Oak Ridge City Council unanimously passed a Resolution approving the City Blueprint as a “living” plan to guide City Council and the Oak Ridge Municipal Planning Commission in their efforts to encourage and maintain quality community growth and development in Oak Ridge.

City Blueprint presents a citizen-supported, visionary plan for future growth and development in Oak Ridge. Based upon community values and ideas as well as current challenges, Blueprint is intended to evolve over time to respond to changing issues and community input while providing ongoing guidance for plans and actions throughout the city. 

The Municipal Planning Commission can make advisory reports, studies, and recommendations that relate to the approved plan, including progress reports, and advise whether a public or private project or activity is in agreement with the plan (Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 13-4-103).


Call (865) 425-3531 or email plandev@oakridgetn.gov to contact the Planning and Development  or to request Planning Staff to give a brief presentation to your community group or organization.
