Blue Stem Ridge, get out your calendars and mark April 17, 18 and 19th for the citywide garage sale! Its a great weekend to unload unwanted or unused stuff from your garage or attic. The City of Moore says that no permits are required if you call to register, 793-5000.
You can use your own signs, but do not post on utility poles. Signs must be removed within 48 hours after the sale.
One of these years I intend to make the rounds and buy. However, it looks like this will be another year for “selling.” I am still hoping to get my car in the garage!

It has been a long time coming, but it looks like fall will mark ground breaking for the Moore Arboretum. The hold up right now is 2 fold. There are going to be 3 ponds in the Arboretum. The drainage has to be done by a developer to connect the third pond, which is almost completed, to the second pond. The developer has agreed to go ahead and complete this work prior to fall.
The second wrinkle, and by far the most difficult one, looks like it has a good chance of coming to completion as well. The city of Moore is currently trying to get OKC to at least bring the water main up to the property line between Bluestem and the Arboretum. If OKC will comment to this and then follow through with the completion of the 45 inch line, then work on the Arboretum will begin behind Bluestem in the fall. The OKC water main needs to be brought at least to the edge of the property, so that drainage work can be done by Moore for our neighborhood and the Arboretum. If OKC will not bring the pipeline up to the property line between Bluestem and the Arboretum, then construction on the Arboretum will be done in 2 phases instead of one phase. Should construction need to be done in 2 phases then construction will begin up on the hill where the ponds are. This work will not require any widening of the bridge of the creek at 34th.
The city intends for this to be a true Arboretum, not a city park or a playground.
