BIXBY, Okla.— A proposal to rezone a parcel of land near 161st and Memorial in Bixby is drew several complaints from some nearby residents. The city council voted to reject the proposal.

The developer was asking the city council to rezone 144 acres of farmland into residential and commercial areas.
According to the developer, the plan is to build up to 525 new single family homes.

One parcel on the lot would have been used for commercial development, if the council approves the rezoning request.  The developer plans to build the subdivisions up over time— by adding between 50 and 60 homes over the next 10 to 12 years.
