— City officials say a developer's request to change the land use and rezone an area on Campus Corner for a high-rise apartment building is listed on Tuesday's city council agenda but won't be heard.

Developer Mark Risser has asked that the requests be postponed until April 9, City Clerk Brenda Hall said.

Risser is seeking permission to build a high-rise apartment building at Asp Avenue and Buchanan Street.

Norman's current zoning ordinances do not address high-rise developments such as Risser's project. A committee is studying high-density, high-rise projects in an effort to come up with a city ordinance to govern them.

City council members have said they won't hear requests for such projects until an ordinance is in place.

The council meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Municipal Building's council chambers, 201 W Gray St.
