Thinking of Valentine’s Day Plans?

Everyone want’s their loved one to feel special and OKC has a lot to offer from a romantic evening just the two of you to a more kiddo friendly event made special with a day out at a museum.

  • Downtown fun could include a ride on a water taxi in our famous canal and a stop to play a few games at the HeyDay arcade.
  • The Myriad Botanical Gardens or the Will Rogers Botanical gardens both offer a beautiful plants for a stroll in nature.
  • Visit one of our museums to learn more about so many great topics including Art at OKCMOA, Bones at The Skeleton Museum, Western Heritage at the Cowboy Museum, or Banjo’s at the American Banjo Museum.
  • Get a professional massage at the Resonance Mind Body Wellness Spa on Route66.

If going out just isn’t in the cards for your plans this year you could always indulge in some sweet treats, like those made by these locally owned shops. They make a great gift or you could even just go to treat yourself, we won’t tell. Buying local is always a great way to support the community we live in, but if it’s tasty it gets extra points in my book!

  • Visit Mollycoddled Hash Slingers who makes amazing handmade candies using many locally sourced ingredients and even some fun Made in Oklahoma gifts!
  • Check out MentaliTea in Bethany which is a coffee and tea shop serving breakfast and lunch but their pies make a great addition to any celebration.
  • Not Cho Cheesecake is a locally owned specialty shop delighting the community with their variety of cheesecake options made in a personal or sharable size option.

Did you miss our neighborhood meeting??

The Harvest Hills South Neighborhood Association invited Chad Meisenburg of the City of Oklahoma City to be our first guest speaker of 2023. We are so thankful that Chad came to answer our questions regarding the construction happening in around our community. His insight into the timeline and planning of current OKC improvements was very helpful.

  • Construction on 82nd and Council will take roughly 3-4 months and will include a stoplight with a blinking left turn arrow to enter the neighborhood while traveling North on Council.
  • Widening of Wilshire West of the turnpike has also included a lowering of a hill for better line of sight for those turning onto Wilshire from side roads. (Turnpike bridge will continue to be narrow as it must be widened by Turnpike Authority)
  • Bridge crossing NW Expressway at Wilshire is nearly done and should be open to foot and bike traffic in roughly 3 months.
  • North bound County Line Road is getting an East bound turn lane onto NW Expressway.

Our neighborhood is located in Ward 1 and this has been one of the fastest growing areas in the OKC metro so we can expect to see these types of construction projects for the foreseeable future as new housing will bring more traffic to these intersections around the north west corner of OKC.

Our first Harvest Hills South Neighborhood Meeting of 2023!

Join us this Thursday- Jan 12th 7pm in the cafeteria at Northridge Elementary

Our Guest Speaker will be Chad Meisenburg of the City of Oklahoma City. Chad is the Bond Program Manager of the Department of Public Works. He will be updating us on what will be happening to our entrance on NW82nd street @ Council Rd (schedule, closures, left turns, traffic restrictions, etc). Bring all of your questions! You don’t want to miss it.

Over the last several years we have held our meetings on Thursday nights, but would like to find out from you if a different day of the week would be more convenient for you. Can you please respond back on what day of the week you would like to come to our meeting. Based on the majority and the school availability, we might be able to move the day for our future meetings.

Together we can make a difference! As we move forward with our 2023 goals we would like to make sure the whole community is represented. Please let us know at if you have questions you would like answered at our meeting and cannot attend. We are also looking for ideas for the future meeting speakers if you have any topics you would like to see addressed.

It is also time for 2023 membership dues. Dues will continue at $30.00 annually. You can pay via the blog by credit card, or send a check to the PO box listed below. You may also bring your check to the meeting. All paid members will receive an extra raffle ticket for door prize.  We need your support to cover the expenses such as Lawn maintenance which is the largest expense we have, but we also have a website blog, Neighbors Night Out, Post Office Box rental, and electricity bills to name a few. We currently pay the electric bill on NW82, but will soon have Harvest Hills Rd and N McKee as soon OG&E runs the line.

What is this class all about?

How parents handle the divorce can make it better or worse for their children.
Many children have a very difficult time adjusting to their parents’ divorce.
This can lead to depression, anxiety, academic failure, delinquency, drug use, teen pregnancy, and other negative outcomes. Children may also fear the loss of one or both of their parents and have a hard time switching between their parents’ homes.

Co-parenting classes teach parents to handle their emotions better and to keep their children out of the middle of their divorce. They also offer many positive tips on how to talk with your child to help him or her to adjust more quickly to the divorce.
Researchers who have studied the effects of these classes have found them to be beneficial for most parents.
