Around Edmond: Plaza at Stephenson Park is now leasing retail space. Citizen’s Bank of Edmond announces 10th season of Heard on Hurd. City earmarks over $100 million for new City complex, Kickingbird Golf Course and new eastside YMCA and Library.
Hi everyone, how about the awesome thunder sleet this morning?! If it’s going to be this cold, I sure expected more than the amount of whatever that was to accumulate. One of our followers on Facebook shared a picture of the pea-sized hail she received this morning. Gotta love this part of winter, all or nothing. I know one thing though, our golden/lab/Pyrenees LOVE this weather and neither can understand why they can only spend short amounts of time outside.
This month got started with a bang with State Superintendent of Education Ryan Walter’s attacking the very foundation of public education slashing a raise in teacher pay that had been previously approved by the Board of Education.
Edmond has ponied up though, through legislation proposed by Adam Pugh and Kristen Thompson, that does not include vouchers, and is extremely comprehensive in its approach in an attempt to not only shore up public schools but bring them up to a point where they may thrive. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to have someone propose something rational, reasonable, and helpful, rather than perpetuate garbage repeatedly.
City expands spending for new City complex, new eastside YMCA and Library, and renovations to Kickingbird Golf Club
The City of Edmond is in the process of getting ready to build a new city complex, consisting of the Municipal Court, City Offices, and a new parking garage for the amount of 44 million dollars. This will bring all agencies, utilities, and everything under one roof. The project will close down a portion of Littler to allow for a public green space.
This is in addition to our public golf course Kickingbird Golf being entirely refinished, with an entirely new clubhouse, at the cost of 20 million dollars, with the hopes of bringing National level golf tournaments to Edmond.
There is also another 37.1 million dollar project to build a new East Edmond YMCA at 15th Street and I35, along with a 2nd Edmond Public Library.
