NORMAN — City officials said they have reached some compromises with developers over proposed ordinances aimed at protecting Lake Thunderbird‘s watershed.

The ordinance would still establish 100-foot water quality protection buffer zones along the streams but would allow development within 25 feet of the streams if certain engineering standards are met, Lewis said.

The compromises will be introduced and the ordinances considered when the city council meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Municipal Building’s council chambers, 201 W Gray St.
