Oklahoma City, OG&E Holds Program to Create Better Neighborhoods

also benefit the existing residents. Beauty is not just the physical aesthetics of the neighborhood such as pathways or public areas, but also how each resident maintainthe looks of their property and implements sustainable features.

In Oklahoma City, beautiful neighborhoods are dreams coming true due to a new effort by local companies. The city of Oklahoma City, in partnership with the Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. is holding a program that will encourage neighborhoods to exert more effort in beautifying their community. The Create Great Neighborhoods” program will be a beautification and sustainability challenge for neighborhoods with at least $1,000 in prizes at stake.

Starting this month until the month of September, participating neighborhoods must implement unique features in their community which speak of beauty and sustainability. Not only does each property and public place must look attractive, features added must help in increasing energy efficiency, lowering the bills and help in conserving resources.

OG&E will be giving a Positive Energy grant of $5,000 to three neighborhood associations that will be declared winners. Winners will win $2,500, $1,500 or $1,000 on November during the annual banquet.
