FW Street Safety Education Forum

A public service message forwarded by our neighbor Kathryn Omarkhail:

Hello Community Leaders,

Did you know that Fort Worth has one of the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in the NATION? Not good.


We wanted to make you aware of the collaborative effort between Blue Zones Project, Fort Worth Safe Communities and the City of Fort Worth to host a Street Safety Education Forum. The public forum is the first step in developing a street safety education campaign (think LookOutTexans.org). As we continue to work to create a healthier city, we also want to create a safe environment for ALL users of the streets not just the motorists. Please feel free to share this flier with interested entities. If you are interested in giving input on shaping the campaign we welcome you too! For more information or any questions, please contact Public Affairs Coordinator, Brenda E. Patton, at Brenda.Patton@healthways.com. To RSVP to the event please e-mail: info@fwscc.org.

Sign Up Now: 13th Annual ONA Collective Garage Sale!

Memorial Day weekend is fast approaching!  Are you ready to take care of your Spring cleaning?  Sign up now for the 13th annual Oakhurst Neighborhood Association Garage Sale!

The dates in question are Friday, May 26, through Sunday, May 28, 2017—Memorial Day weekend.  See more details below!

1. Registration forms are found here on this website, on page 7 of the April Oak Leaflet.  Mail in completed forms to the address listed on them or drop them off at 2212 Primrose (David Collyer), 1908 Marigold (Phyllis Anglin), or 2067 West Lotus Ave (Chanin Scanlon).  David and Phyllis also have pre-printed forms available for pickup, if you prefer.

2. The Oakhurst Neighborhood Association will secure the garage sale permit, place ads in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram advertising the garage sale, and provide maps and lists of all residents holding a garage sale each day.  Copies of these maps will be available to you as a garage sale participant to distribute to your customers.

3. More customers equal more sales for you!  Joint advertising of the sale means less work for you and more customers.

The application states the cut-off date, but it can't be stressed enough.  May 22 at midnight is the absolute cut-off for accepting applications!

Permits will be completed by the 23rd and packets will be delivered sometime during the day or early evening on Thursday the 25th—the day before the sale begins.  So don't panic...the committee will be there with your packets!

With your participation, we're looking forward to another great neighborhood garage sale!
