REMINDER SCHOOL’S OUT FOR THE SUMMER!

school out

The schools are out for the summer and the children are playing outside. (I know hard to believe and that they may be still on their phones or games, but they are outside!)

Slow down and watch out for them. The speed limit in the neighborhood is 25mph, although we have seen several people who seem to be in a hurry racing through the neighborhood.

Please slow down……r2-125

Goodbye “Little Blue”

The city has officially retired its “Little Blue” recycling bin. The new green large-cart recycling program will start in early July. That means for the month of June there is no recycling pick up.

Some options for recycling in June:
-Take materials to Waste Management Materials Recovery Facility, 5519 NW 4th
– Place clean recyclables in your green cart to be picked up in July when the new program begins.

As for “Little Blue”, the city is encouraging residents to keep it & re-purpose it into something useful. Some ideas would be to use it as a raised bed planter as it already has drainage holes, check with the Central OK Humane Society & see if they could use some more, storage bin, craft container, laundry basket, or I’ve seen the city recommend using it a water balloon holder! If you’re not interested in re-purposing it you could always see if a neighbor wants it or simply put it in your large green cart for the city to pick up.

Neighbors,neighbor

Here is the meeting minutes summary of the General Meeting that took place last night May 17, 2018.

Active Shooting Training

We had an excellent session provided by Officer Bob Skalla on Active Shooter and Threat Awareness Training. We had 37 neighbors in attendance. It could not have come soon enough with another school shooting today in Texas. It is happening more and more. It is hoped that you learned some valuable tips to keep yourself and loved ones safe. We will be scanning a copy of the handouts and post an electronic copy on the Association website and our Facebook page.

Voting

Crime Patrol

Crime PatrolThe neighborhood voted to start the Crime Patrol. Twelve people have been trained by the OKCPD Hefner Division. Patrols started today. Be on the watch for vehicles with a flashing amber light and crime patrol magnetic signs on the vehicles. They are there to provide additional eyes for the police department. They will take note of things in the neighborhood, for example, if you forget to close your garage door they will call you to notify you. They will also report street light outage and any suspicious behavior.

Sign Toppers

We also talked about the Sign Toppers and the cost difference between multi-color with the wheat logo versus solid color. The board agreed to pay for the toppers to be installed by the city on all street signs within our fire grid. The city will also replace any damaged street signs while doing the installation of the toppers. We will receive new street signs where you are unable to read them (example 80th and Harvest Moon).

Membership

We have 51 paid members and will be sending out information soon for a membership drive. We need to increase our membership in order to meet the current obligations of the neighborhood. Please consider mailing in your payment of $30 or going to our website and pay via PayPal link. We need your support!Membership
