The Scenic River Overlay Design District includes six sub-districts along the Oklahoma River corridor between S Meridian Avenue and S Eastern Avenue.

The regulations and guidelines of the district establish a framework for a variety of unique development opportunities along the Oklahoma River corridor, ensuring a high level of consistency and quality while still allowing for design flexibility and creativity.  

The Riverfront Design Committee and staff review new construction and expansions or alternations of building exteriors within the Scenic River Overlay Design District. The Committee also reviews proposals for demolition, murals, Planned Unit Developments, subdivisions and City projects like parks, monuments, public art, landmarks and bridges within the district.
