Remarks to the City Council by Dan Weinmeister, President of the Turning Point Ministries Board:
Turning Point – City of Edmond Council Meeting 3/28/16
Re: Recognition of Heritage Village as a Choice/Revitalized Neighborhood
Mayor, City Council and citizens of Edmond:
First, thank you to the mayor, city council, and the citizens of Edmond for their continued community support of Turning Point to meet our mission to provide affordable housing in our great city. Through our partnership more people and families will be able to gain homeownership and call Edmond home.
Activity in Heritage Village, Turning Point’s newest development located off Fretz between 2nd and Danforth, is ramping up. A relocated and rehabilitated home has been sold and two new construction three bedroom homes are under contract and expected to be finished very soon. Due to an overwhelming response for our homes, Turning Point plans to construct two to three more new homes as soon as the current builds are completed.
We are proud to announce the first homeowner in Heritage Village’s is a City of Edmond employee. We are so glad Turning Point was able to help them own a home in Edmond. Our other new homeowners-to-be are an Edmond public school teacher and a nurse who are thrilled to be able to purchase an affordable, new home in Edmond.
Thank you again for recognizing Heritage Village as a Choice/Revitalized Neighborhood. Through this action, Turning Point, and our clients, will be able to apply for additional support to help carry out our mission to provide affordable housing in our great city.
If anyone knows of an individual or family that could use Turning Point’s help in achieving home ownership, please direct them to our website at turningpointoklahoma.org for more information or reach out to a board member to find out more about Turning Point or to volunteer!
Turning Point’s annual golf tournament is scheduled for Friday, May 13th at Kickingbird Golf Course and registration forms are located on our website. I hope you can join us! I hope we can also count on all of you to sign up in September for Turning Point’s 6th annual Edmond Turkey Trot held on Thanksgiving Day!
On behalf of Turning Point, the Turning Point Board, and our current and future clients, thank you. We appreciate your past and continued support of our mission and our partnership with the City of Edmond. It is a great place to grow and LIVE!
