We have been busy in our communities celebrating the end of summer with Ice Cream Socials as well as coming together and supporting our local schools with a back to school supply drive! The Reserve at Valencia and The Preserve at Parkside met within the last week. It is always amazing when you see a group of neighbors come together to rally around a cause!
At Landmark Fine Homes we consistently talk about how we don't just build homes but we build communities. When we say communities we don't just mean taking a piece of land and putting in streets, curbs, developing lots and adding amenities that everyone enjoys. Those are items that go into our thinking but we also have listened to our customers and heard what you wanted. The clubhouses, parks, pools and walking trails are all great but what you are wanting more than anything is a community where you can go out of town and not worry about leaving your home. A community where if someone becomes ill, the neighbors rally around that person and provide meals. A community where when you drive down the street you know the names of the people that live in the homes not just what kind of cars they drive.
Our focus this year is hosting community gatherings where that can happen. We have found as our world has become more high tech people are still craving high touch opportunities! If this is something you are wanting- talk with one of our New Home Consultants in The Springs at Greenleaf Trails, The Reserve at Valencia, The Preserve at Parkside, Carrington Lakes, Montoro Ridge, Little River Trails, Cascata Falls, or The Springs at Skyline. They would love to help you get into your new Landmark Fine Home.
As August approaches talk begins in Norman to center around kids going back to school and how OU football will fare in 2014. This year is no different, except there is a little more to talk about in Norman. There is a $171-million-plus list of "quality of life" improvements promoted by Norman Forward that is calling for a 15-year, half-cent sales tax to be included in a Spring election. The list of improvements would include:
So where would these facilities be?
Although there have been no definite locations determined the proposal for the Sports and Wellness Center would be on 160 acres of North Base land, currently owned by the University of Oklahoma. OU officials have said they would be willing to swap the land for Reaves Park at Jenkins & Constitution.
A series of public hearings will be held in the coming months so residents can weigh in on the proposal.
The project would be completed in 3 phases over the next 6 years.
With so much planned and going on in Norman, why not make Norman your home?
