Statewide award recognizes superb Parks and Recreation management  Post Date: 01/07/2021 9:30 a.m.


 The Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation Department received the 2020 Gold Medal Award from the Oklahoma Recreation & Parks Society (ORPS).

This award is presented annually to a Parks agency in the state that demonstrates excellence in long-range planning, resource management and innovative approaches to delivering superb park
and recreation services with fiscally sound business practices.

“We are honored to be selected as the 2020 ORPS Gold Medal Award winner,” said Matt Hendren, director of the Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation department.
 “The department being recognized by the Oklahoma Recreation and Parks Society as a leader in the state is validation that we are offering the highest quality
services and programs to our community. It is this commitment to service that contributes to making our community truly outstanding.
This award is a testament to the dedicated work of each staff member, volunteer, partner and the commitment of our elected officials to Parks and Recreation.”

The department was also recognized this year with a Facility or Project Award of Excellence for the Challenger Adult Softball Complex.

“The Gold Medal Award and the Award of Excellence are wonderful accomplishments for Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation,” said Mayor Craig Thurmond. “These accomplishments
 are sure signs that the department has the vision necessary to serve our residents and many visitors we have to our parks facilities every day.”

The Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation Department manages over 800 acres of public land with 41 parks throughout the city. The department offers a wide variety
 of indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities for residents to enjoy and stay active year round. Find out more at BAParks.org.

Linda Brewer and her Pansies

After spending hours and days in hot weather, then wet, and then
finally cold weather at each of our Entrances digging out the
weeds and the flowers of Summer, Linda turned to planting over 290 Pansies
to bring back the beauty of our entrances.  Each of the Pansies required a new hole,
some "Blood Meal and Fertilizer, to live through the cold and Winter. 
Each one done with tender love and care.
  Next Spring, the Oakridge and Louisville
Entrances will be a place of joy and beauty thanks
 to her extremely hard work this fall.
Turtle Creek furnished the Pansies and Linda
 gave of her time without charge!
The next time you see her,
 please say
"Thank YOU for your hard work!"

Please
If you have a boat, an RV, a DEAD Auto or Truck, or a trailer parked in your driveway
Please remove it and do any of the below
  remove them from the driveway and park them "Behind the Fence" on an
all weather surface (not grass, not gravel) completely out of sight.
or move them to a self storage business.

below is the paragraph referred to in the Covenants

J.     Automobiles, Boats and Trailers.  Except as expressly hereinafter provided, no lot or

            parcel shall be used as a parking, display or accommodation area for any type of motor
            vehicle, boat, trailer, camper or motor-driven cycle.  The purpose of parking, display or
            accommodation area is to store or to perform any activity thereon such as, but not
            limited to maintenance, repair, rebuilding, dismantling, repainting, servicing of any kind,
            or storage, except as hereinafter provided.  Such storage or activities may be performed
            within completely enclosed garages or other structures located on the lot which screen
            the sight and sound of the activities from the street and from adjoining property in such
            a manner so as to have the storage or activity out of the public view. The foregoing
            restriction shall not be deemed to prevent the washing or polishing of such motor of such
             motor vehicles, boats, trailers, campers, or motor-driven cycles, together with those  
            activities normally incident or necessary to such washing and polishing.  No boat, trailer,
            camper, truck or commercial vehicles shall be parked at any time on or in front of any lot in
            an area visible from neighboring lots or any public street, except as such parking is
            necessary to make commercial deliveries.  All such motor vehicles, boats, trailers,
            campers, or motor-driven cycles which are stored or parked on any lot or parcel and
            which are not stored or parked in completely enclosed garage or other structure may be
            stored or parked on a side lot area and screened from public view by a fence and located

                                                                                   NOTE:
               This should not even be a point to raise


                                         It is just common sense, these Covenants were voted on and
                          Approved by a huge majority of 87% of the homeowners here in Turtle Creek in 2000.
                             The City of Broken Arrow adopted just about the same language in their city code. 
It is up to us to keep Turtle Creek and Broken Arrow beautiful.  A boat, a trailer, a dead car or truck, an RV has
      a special place, but it is not the driveway or the side yard or backyard of your home here in Turtle Creek.

                                If you don't agree with these Covenants, please consider moving to another area
                                                     that is more acceptable to your type of life style.

If you’ve been waiting for a sign… this may be it!

I know
that you have heard this next statement for years,
but unlike other times, even I am impressed!
Yesterday(3-10-2020) I met with a few Mortgage lenders
 and every one of them,
without
any excepts,
 said and showed me what
 the interest rates are right now.
2.75% to about 3 1/8% (last year at this time 4%+)

update 4-4-2020
I have already had 4 of my most recent Buyers get an interest of 2.75%
Think about re-financing your present mortgage, don't wait, do it now
!

HOW long this will last? NO ONE KNOWS
Will it go lower?  More than likely, NO!


With the number of homes for sell in the Greater Tulsa area
 DOWN by

almost 32%
and with Buyers trying to find that Perfect Home,
this Real Estate market just might be considered
the strongest
SELLER'S Market
since about 1978.

So, if you have been thinking about selling your present home
and then either upsizing or downsizing
YOU
could not ask for a Better Real Estate Market than
RIGHT NOW!

Stop Thinking!  DO IT NOW!

Becoming a Home Maintenance Pro: Tips for Homeowners

Many homeowners don't think about home maintenance until something breaks, but that's not the best way to take care of your home. Whether you’re a new homeowner or have been settled for years, it’s never too late to cultivate some home maintenance habits. Here are three tips to help you protect your investment and keep your property in good shape for years to come:




Create and Follow a Home Maintenance Schedule
A good place to start is by following a home maintenance schedule. Just as your car needs to have an oil change, your home and yard will need some regular maintenance. Home maintenance schedule apps such as HomeZada and Centriq are an easy way to get yourself on track.

You'll need to mow your lawn, clean your gutters and perhaps even top your trees from time to time. For pest control, you may need to spray or have ground treatment performed a few times a year, too. When it comes to appliances, make sure to send in any warranties and follow the maintenance recommendations in your owner’s manual. For older appliances, many documents can be found online.

Don't be afraid to do some research and speak with professionals about maintenance specific to your location.

Have All of Your Home Systems Checked Regularly
It's important to get your electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems checked annually to keep them in good shape. Some of these tasks can be done yourself; for instance, you might need to clean your air filters, remove debris from the vents and flush out your water heater.

For more technical inspections, check customer reviews on Yelp, Angie's List, Google, Facebook and the BBB when searching for a new company. Always go with one that is experienced, licensed, bonded and insured.

Follow a Cleaning Schedule
Home maintenance often focuses on repair work, but keeping your home clean can be just as important. In addition to once a week tasks such as vacuuming and dusting the shelves, deep cleaning every month or so can save you big in the long run. Moving furniture around, pulling out the washer and dryer to clean behind them and clearing out the garage gives you a chance to inspect for pest problems, water damage and similar issues that can quickly escalate into expensive repairs.

Being a homeowner is very rewarding on many levels, but homeownership comes with a great deal of responsibility. As long as you put in some effort on a regular basis, you should have no problem keeping your home in good repair.


 

                                                                                                                                                                ***********************************************************************************                                     
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

   BE KIND, Please    
      If you have pets and they are barking most of the time and YOU can hear them, so can your neighbors.
      So, in the spirit of Kindness, PLEASE do everything possible to limit their barking before your neighbors call the Police

Security Systems REVIEWS
(updated 10-15-2018)

Personal Note
After a recent break-in here in Turtle Creek, especially just 2 doors north of me, I purchased a 4 Camera, 1080P, Modem, wireless System.  The
views are extremely sharp, clear and in color.  You can access the system via your Smart Phone, You are notified every time there is motion detected by
the Camera(s).  You can subscribe to their services or simply monitor the activity through your phone, lap top, desk top or iPad or other devices.

I purchased the system at Best Buy for about $775.00 and paid $125.00 to have someone install and show me how it works. (well worth it the first time around)
They work on their own Battery System and they are rechargeable BUT I strong suggest that you have the System hard wired (plug into electric outlets)
This avoids trips up the ladder to take down and recharge the Battery.  I did buy an extra Battery just to have it ready when the ONLY one that I have
on a battery dies, this takes about 3 months depending on the amount of activity the camera senses.  The more it sees, the faster the battery dies.  Those over the
garage pickup motion south bound, north bound and in the driveway. The other is located towards the backyard where is watching the side garage door.

I like it and would recommend it strongly.  It is NOT the answer to prevent but rather to catch those that are up to no good or to just see who pulled up into
the driveway.

Next time you walk by the house, look way up over the garage.
 You are being watched and you just tripped the motion
detector

Are you doing the little things homebuyers love?

March 14 2019

There’s never been a better time to sell a home.

Millennials are ready for homeownership and renters are seeing consistent rent increases. This means more buyers than ever are on the market for a home like yours. 

Home equity is also at all-time highs, which makes now the perfect time to sell and get more cash to put toward your next home.

Considering listing your home? Let’s start with the proven ways to maximize your returns: 

1. Clear the clutter. Crammed closets and overfilled garages can give buyers the impression your property is short on space. Declutter aggressively to accentuate the storage possibilities buyers get excited about. 

Pro Tip: Buyers love to open cabinets and drawers. Clear those spaces, too.

2. Maximize the possibilities. A potential home should be a blank slate -- a space buyers can imagine making their own. Keep personal items to a minimum and aim for a neutral look. 

Pro Tip: Set the dinner table so buyers can visualize coming home after a long day.

3. Brighten it up. Expose as much natural light as possible. For darker or interior rooms, use high-wattage bulbs in light fixtures.

Pro Tip: A fresh coat of light paint makes a home feel cheerful and shows pride of ownership.

4. Rearrange the furniture. Can people move around without bumping into furniture? Does the layout invite guests to sit down and relax?

Pro Tip: To invite conversation, don’t make a TV the focal point of any room. 

5. Outside views matter. Exteriors make a critical first impression. Ace yours by repainting your entry door and polishing the door handle. Potted plants on patios or balconies also make the outside of your home feel welcoming.

Pro Tip: Colorful flowers on window sills look great indoors and add to the outside appeal.

Do you need help staging your home? Or maybe you have budget concerns about upgrades needed before you list. Reach out today. Let’s make sure we maximize the appeal of your home, simply and cost-effectively.
