SAM'S CLUB - COMING TO I-35

Sam's Club Coming to I-35

Looks like Sam's Club will be the next big box retailer on I-35 and it will be located next to the Wal-Mart Super Center in front of our friends in Fox Lake.

It seems that Sam's Club operates differently than Wal-Mart.  Their first introduction to Edmond was to request  a Sign Variance that initially exceeded all reasonable standards. 

 (As Planning Commission Barry Moore put it - I lived in apartments smaller than the size of the 500 sq ft sign requested.)

"Yard of the Week" Concludes

 

Edmond's annual "Yard of the Week" sponsored by Edmond Beautiful, started  Memorial Day and ended  Labor Day.   It certainly was another challenging summer for Edmond’s gardeners. 

 

Thanks to the Edmond Sun and Home Deport for their sponsorship of this Edmond Tradition and to Richard Wrede, who chairs this program for Edmond Beautiful. 

 

REDUCING MOSQUITO HABITAT KEY TO AVOIDING WEST NILE VIRUS

Reducing Mosquito Habitat Key to Avoiding West Nile Virus
 
As the numbers of West Nile Virus (WNV) cases in Oklahoma continue to climb, the City of Edmond is in communication with the Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD). The OCCHD is advising residents to take extra precautions against the mosquito-borne illness by avoiding mosquito bites and reducing habitat where mosquitoes live and breed.
