NORMAN — Lindsey Street public meeting

A public information meeting and open house on the West Lindsey Street reconstruction project will be from 6 to 8 p.m. April 3 in the Main Conference Room at Sooner Legends Inn and Suites, 1200 24th Ave. SW.

There will be a presentation about the proposed improvements to Lindsey Street from 24th Avenue Southwest to Berry Road and expected impacts to motorists and the surrounding community. Public input is desired.

The project consists of widening that portion of Lindsey from three lanes to a divided four-lane roadway, replacing the Imhoff Creek Bridge and addressing storm water flooding. Traffic signals at 24th Avenue Southwest, McGee Drive and Berry Road will be upgraded.

Resident who would like to attend but find it difficult because of a disability, architectural barrier or other special need can contact John Clink at 366-5424 or John.Clink@NormanOk.gov or write the City of Norman, Engineering Division, P.O. Box 370, Norman, OK 73070.

 

Early voting for city elections

Early voting will be from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Cleveland County Election Board Office, 641 E. Robinson St., for next Tuesday’s city council and Public Safety Sales tax election. Some precincts will include the Canadian Valley Technology Center Special Election.

Due to a state law that took effect Nov. 1, early voting is no longer conducted on Monday. Absentee Voting Board personnel will be on duty each day to assist voters.

For more information, contact the Cleveland County Election Board at 366-0210.

 

 Deadline to change party affiliation is Monday

 Oklahomans who want to elect the nominee of a political party in the primary or runoff primary elections later this year should make sure they are registered in that party no later than Monday, according to Cleveland County Election Board Secretary Bryant Rains.

Changes of political affiliation are prohibited by law during the period beginning April 1 and continuing through Aug. 31 in even-numbered years, Rains said.
