Hi everyone, thanks for visiting to see what’s happening around Edmond. Last Wednesday and Thursday, Eriech Tapia was the moderator for the Edmond Summit Rotary Club and EdmondActive hosted Candidate Forums held at Vault 405, and we have the video for you to listen to, to be able to make your decisions as to whom you’d like to vote for in the February 9, 2021 primary elections and in the April 2021 general elections for Mayor, and for City Council Ward’s 3 and 4. The way it works in Edmond is that the top two in the primary move on to the general election. It was a fun experience for us, and for the candidates as everyone was super civil, and felt at ease with Mr. Tapia’s hosting.


If you shopped in Downtown Edmond this holiday season, you may have noticed the Rise Retail Incubator between Citizen’s Bank of Edmond and The Mule.

The Holiday Incubator hosted two retailers, Cargo Room and D’s Doggie Desserts. Well, Rise is accepting applications for the Spring Incubator until February 10th, here’s more information!

RISE is back! Our first season with shopkeepers was a hit! We have reopened applications to prepare for new pop-up shops to move in to our prime downtown Edmond location by March 1. This low-cost, low-risk program helps Oklahoma retail businesses navigate their next steps in growth. Want to try out your first brick-and-mortar? Want to expand into a new market? We are here for you.
Applications must be submitted by Feb. 10 at 5 p.m. to be considered. A jury will review all eligible applications and select one to two winners through a ranking system, based on experience, product selection, inventory and merchandising plan, by Feb. 19. www.isa.org/rise
