Traffic patterns in Wynnewood Village: Which way do you even go?

The City Design Studio released a 28-page report detailing ways that Wynnewood should be redeveloped.

Much of the report details housing. The plan calls for affordable apartments as well as some single-family homes and condos.

For the Wynnewood Village Shopping Center, there are two plans.

Wynewood Village “light” calls for improving the shopping center’s storefronts, creating safe traffic patterns and improving open spaces for use as temporary farmers markets, festivals and community events. A few sites fronting Zang and Illinois would be made available for new retail development.

One proposal calls for total reconstruction of Wynnewood Village shopping center.

The second plan calls for total reconstruction of the nearly 70-year-old shopping center. This would create more room for housing. The area north of Louisiana Avenue would be available for townhomes and apartments (in yellow on the map above) that would transition into single-family neighborhoods.

The redesign plans include a “symbolic reinterpretation of a former creek that ran through the site,” as well as community spaces and improved walkways.

The City Plan Commission will be briefed on the plan Dec. 18, and a public hearing is set for Jan. 14.
