City of Enid: Van Buren Road Construction & The Big Event
ENID, OK (March 22, 2012) – Due to questions regarding the Van Buren Street resurfacing project, the City of Enid reminds citizens that during this nighttime project, loud noises will be heard. The resurfacing entails removal of a layer of asphalt by milling prior to placing new asphalt. The milling process is loud but the operation is a moving one and noise will not be concentrated in any one location for a long period of time. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation asks for the public’s patience during this much needed improvement to the highway system.
ENID, OK (March 22, 2012) – Volunteers from Enid’s Northwestern Oklahoma State University campus are preparing for “The Big Event,” on Saturday, March 31.The annual event, sponsored by the student organization, Conserving Our Ranger Environment (CORE), brings students, faculty and staff together to give back to their campus communities in Alva, Enid and Woodward. Volunteers in Enid will meet on campus at 9am.
This year, CORE is partnering with the City of Enid and the Enid Tree Board to mulch and prune trees at the 412/30th Intersection.
This year “The Big Event” has received tremendous support from a myriad of partners, including The City of Enid, The Enid Tree Board, Walmart, Chesapeake Energy, Chesapeake Midstream, and all the students and employees of NWOSU-Enid!
“The Big Event” is a nationally recognized function with the purpose to strengthen the relationship between the university and the communities it serves while creating positive change.
