2017 Summer Social – This Sunday June 25th!

Neighbors, don’t miss our annual summer social this coming Sunday June the 25th from 4-7 pm.  The social will be in the same place as last year just north of Rockhill on Locust street.

Again this year we will feature smoked meats from our very own John Kilby.  John did such a great job last year that we twisted his arm again until he agreed to do it this year.  After that we ask neighbors to bring something for the pot luck based on your address.

If the last number in your house address is an even number, please bring a side dish.  If the last number in your house address is an odd number, please bring a dessert.  

We again will have the bounce house for the kids (and kids at heart) to play in.  This year we are adding a shaved ice stand for anyone who wants a cool treat to enjoy.  We also are going to have a DJ to play some music for us while we socialize with fellow neighbors.  As always there will be games and the famous pie eating contest.

So don’t miss out on another great chance to spend some time with your fellow OMG’ers.

 

2017 June Dumpster Day

Our first Dumpster Day of the year is this Saturday.  Don’t miss this great chance for you to do some late spring cleaning and get rid of that pile of stuff taking up unwanted room in your garage or basement.  It’s also a great chance to clean up your yard and bring those piles of sticks or yard waste that has kept growing all spring long.

WHO: Oak Meyer Gardens residents who are current on their annual dues.

WHEN: Saturday June 18, 2016 from 8 AM – NOON.

WHERE: Research Hospital – Brookside Campus.  6675 Holmes Rd.  Dumpsters will be placed in the Southwest Corner of the parking lot of the hospital nearest to Holmes Rd and the University Academy building.  (See Map below)

WHAT: We will have 2 trash dumpsters and a yard waste dumpster.

Household Trash dumpster guidelines:

  • Dumpsters are for common household trash only.
  • Please do not place leaves and brush, tires, household hazardous waste or appliances in the dumpster.

*Please no hazardous waste, as we can’t put it in the dumpster.  This means no old paint cans, paint thinner, batteries, old gasoline, chemicals, etc.  Important Stipulations:
If you have household hazardous waste that needs to be disposed, please visit recyclespot.org to learn more about where and when to dispose it.

Leaf & brush dumpster guidelines:

  • Only leaves and brush are allowed in the dumpster.
  • Yard debris must be in a paper lawn bag or a cardboard box.
  • Tree limbs can be up to 10″ in diameter and 6′ in length.

June 2017 – Dumpster Day & Summer Social

June is a busy month in Oak Meyer Gardens.  This month we have our first of two neighborhood-wide dumpster days along with our annual Summer Social.

Mark your calendars for Saturday June 17th from 8-11 AM for Dumpster Day and Sunday June 25th from 4-7 PM for the Summer Social.

DUMPSTER DAY:

This year dumpster day is moving to the parking lot at Research Hospital – Brookside Campus located at 6675 Holmes Road.  This should provide us with better traffic flow in and out for our neighbors.  More details to come.

SUMMER SOCIAL:

The Summer Social this year will again be held on Locust street between 68th Terrace and Rockhill (same place as last year).  Many more details to come as we confirm events and entertainment for the gathering, but we are hoping to have some great food, local adult beverages, and fun games & entertainment for kids and adults of all ages.

This year we are adding a really fun contest to the event.  Here in 2017 we welcome the addition of the Ugly / Funny Paper Plate Contest. We all have some old paper plates laying around from holiday parties, kids birthdays, retirement parties, the 1970’s…  This year we are asking neighbors to bring their ugliest, funniest, or strangest looking paper plates to the party.  It helps us all unload some of the eyesores from our houses and saves the HOA some money to boot.  We will take a vote on the best plate of the night and the winner will get a great prize!

Stay tuned for more details as we confirm additions to the evening.

*NOTE: We are looking for neighborhood volunteers to help plan and execute the social.  If you’re interested in helping out, please contact HOA President Jerry Rowan – Jerry@RowanKC.com

2015 Annual Meeting

omg_annual

The Oak Meyer Gardens annual meeting will be held on Sunday, November 8 at Brookside Gardens, the new event space located at 624 E 63rd St. Join your neighbors for a social hour at 5pm followed by a dinner provided by the home association. The meeting will be held at 6pm.

Guest speaker, Butch Rigby, will kick off the meeting with a presentation and discussion about his recent investments and planned improvements to five commercial properties along 63rd Street between Oak and Holmes. His presentation will be followed by a discussion of neighborhood business, and the election of home association board members.

Parking for Brookside Gardens is located in the parking lot for the building located directly across the street from the venue.

Dues Increase Proposal and Resident Vote

In order to maintain our current level of service, the association board is proposing an increase to the annual dues. The increase would raise the services assessment by $20 per household, annually. For at least the past decade, our annual dues have remained unchanged, while prices for services have increased. The increase we’re seeking would allow the association to cover the current services budget while maintaining an adequate reserve fund. Additionally, we may be able to enhance current services and/or consider new services. The proposal would raise annual dues in Oak Meyer Gardens from an average of $46 per household to an average of $66 per household.

On Tuesday, September 16th, the Oak Meyer Gardens board will hold an open meeting to present a dues increase proposal to residents. Following the presentation, residents in attendance will be asked to vote on the proposal. Residents must be present to vote, and one vote will be counted per household represented. The meeting will be held at 7pm in the St. Peter’s Legacy Center, located at 815 E. Meyer Blvd.
