Our Mayor, Kathy Taylor, partners with neighborhood associations to accomplish city goals.
You can truly make a difference in Tulsa by:
• Coming to Neighborhood meetings
• Voting for the neighborhood president, officers and board members
• Nominating yourself and/or others for these positions
In order to vote or hold positions, you must have first paid your annual dues. Annual dues are ten dollars and can be paid on Saturday.
This is a great first meeting to attend if you have never come to a neighborhood meeting before. We hope to see you there!
Not quite in Brady Heights but just across the Tisdale Expressway is the Fairview Mansion, also known as the Springer Mansion, at 585 W Fairview. The mansion will be part of an IRS Auction on September 11th, 2008.

The latest issue of Cottages & Bungalows
(June/July 2008) might be of some interest to those of us who live in American foursquare homes.
I’ve had a hard time finding information on this often overlooked architectural style, so it was great to discover 5 pages of the issue devoted to the foursquare with so many full color illustrations, floor plans and historical information.
The following is a list of links given at the end of the article for further information:
American Foursquare Architectural Style
There is also an article within the issue which discusses historically accurate paint colors and color schemes. According to the article, bright white is never allowed on the exterior or interior of a craftsman home. While I’m sure that is accurate historically, it does seem a little particular to me. But maybe I just say that as a home owner who’s every door, ceiling and piece of trim is painted white… not to mention the aluminum siding on the exterior of our home.
