The Moore Tornado

by admin ~ June 10th, 2013

Moore-OKC-Tornado

May 20th, 2013 will be remembered by many of us for quite some time.   Even though our neighborhood did not take a direct tornado hit,  we were in the debris field and had building materials scattered over our  streets, yards and roofs.  If you haven’t already checked, be sure to clean out your gutters.  We found a photo of a young boy with a cowboy hat in one of our gutters.

Our neighborhood was quite fortunate compared to those who use to live 1 mile away.  Everyone likely knows someone who experienced  some type of loss:  a home, business or loved one.   After surviving this kind of traumatic event,  you can expect to be in shock,  feel dazed,  have difficulty focusing & making decisions, feel distracted, irritable,  very tired and unueasy with approaching storms.  Please seek counseling if you are having trouble functioning.

I certainly appreciated getting to know my neighbors better after the tornado.  There seemed to be a need to talk with each other and share what we were doing or where we were when the destructive monster approached.   Anytime is a good time to visit with your neighbors.

If  you haven’t considered it before,  you might want to research the installation of an above or below ground shelter.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have an overwhelming recovery process ahead of them.

ReZoning Notice for Blue Stem Ridge Residents

by admin ~ October 23rd, 2012

Dear Property Owner,

 On or about September 14, 2012, you were given notice of a public hearing at the Moore Planning Commission to consider Rezoning Application #893 from A-1 Rural Agricultural to C-3 General Commercial and R-1 Single Family Dwelling District. The purpose of this letter is to provide more details concerning the rezoning application.

 History of Property

 In 2002, Rezoning Application #692 was approved, zoning approximately 35 acres on the southeast corner of SW 34th Street and Santa Fe Avenue and along the frontage of SW 34th Street from A-1 Rural Agricultural to C-3 General Commercial. At that time, the property owner had no immediate plans to develop the property, and it has since remained vacant.

 In 2008, Rezoning Application #817 was approved, zoning approximately 96 acres of the property to R-1 Single Family Dwelling District to be developed as a single-family subdivision, known as the Sendera Lakes Addition. The final plat for Sendera Lakes, Section 1, was approved by Moore City Council in 2012, and development is currently underway.

 Current Application

 On October 9, 2012, at 7:00 pm, the Moore Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at Moore City Hall to consider Rezoning Application #893. If approved, this application would change the zoning of the existing pond and drainage ways from A-1 Rural Agriculture to C-3 General Commercial and R-1 Single-Family Dwelling District (please refer to the attached map).  The R-1 property would be incorporated into the developing Sendera Lakes Addition, and the C-3 property would be incorporated into any future General Commercial developments that may occur in the future on the southeast corner of SW 34th and Santa Fe.

 Any person wishing to appear in support or opposition to the proposed change may do so at the October 9 Planning Commission meeting to be held in the City Council Chambers, 301 North Broadway, Moore, Oklahoma.  The Planning Commission will forward its recommendation to the City Council which will hold a meeting on November 5, 2012 at 6:30p.m.  Protest against such change in zoning shall be filed at least three (3) days before the date of the City Council hearing.  If additional information is needed, or if you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact the Moore Planning Department at 793-5053.

 Thanks to Nora in the City Community Development Office for the above information.

Blue Stem Ridge Shows Patriotism

by admin ~ July 8th, 2012

While the following pictures show just a few of the flags flying this July 4th weekend,  Blue Stem Ridge homes show their patriotism by a variety of flags and decor.  These houses are a little pocket of patriotism along 31st Terrace.  Blue Stem Ridge neighborhood is a community of 250 homes in Moore, Oklahoma.

   

A nature aboretum has just been completed at the eastern edge of Blue Stem and a new housing development has begun across the road on it’s southern edge.  There is lots to be proud of in our neighborhood!

Suspicous Activity

by admin ~ January 27th, 2012

Let’s keep a lookout for suspicious activity or persons and inform the police. It is important to keep our neighborhood safe!
