Alert Neighbors is a program of awareness and prevention.
As a part of this program, we have installed
alert neighbor sign toppers on street signs
throughout the neighborhood and we have installed larger
alert neighbor "We Call Police" signs at our main entrances.
Our neighborhood directory is published annually
and is free to all members.
The Block Captain program is in place on most blocks in Park
Plaza South. These volunteers have collected information from
the residents on their block to be used in case of an emergency.
This, along with the directory that is distributed by the Block
Captains, allows neighbors to make quick contact with each other
Our email news and alert program is ongoing. Using email address
provided by homeowners we post bulletins for lost pets, information
from city leaders and general news/alert topics as they are brought
to our attention.
We welcome more volunteers to fill Block Captain spots. Please
contact contact Bob Herndon, Block Captain Chair to volunteer at 294-1256 or
email email@example.com if you are interested in becoming a Block Captain.
- Found/Lost pets - If you have lost or found a pet,
send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post it for
the other HOA members to see. If possible please provide a photo
with your email. This effort has become very successful in reuniting pets
and families. Thank you to all the PPS pet owners who comply with the Tulsa
city ordinances regarding pet ownership.
- Safety Alerts -From time to time, we will provide HOA members
with e-mail information regarding your safety, such as reminders
and tips about securing your home and being alert neighbors.
- Community News - PPS HOA also sends you information
directly from the City of Tulsa for Meetings for PlanItTulsa,
environmental events, City involvement, etc.
PPS HOA has a dedicated committee of residents who greet new families to the neighborhood called the Welcome Committee. New Neighbors are welcomed with a visit from a committee member who provides a treat of bread or sweets along with a PPS HOA welcome letter and a membership form to the PPS HOA. We welcome volunteers!
Please Contact email@example.com if you are interested in joining the Welcome Committee.
The Events Committee coordinates the Block Party and the Spring
Clean Up and Garage Sale. We welcome volunteers! Please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Held each September, The Neighborhood Block Party has become
a PPS HOA tradition with food, fellowship and
Garage Sale and Spring Clean Up
Each Spring, PPS HOA coordinates the Spring Clean up and Neighborhood
Garage Sale. Held on a Saturday, the Garage sale is advertised with an
ad in the Classifieds of the Tulsa World Newspaper and with large signs
at our entrances. When available, we receive 2 dumpsters from the City
of Tulsa to place debris and other trash from your attic, garage or yard!
We have held this event for several years and it is a tremendous success.
We are looking into having the Dumpsters again in the Fall for a Fall Clean Up.
Partners In Education -(PIE)
PPS HOA officially became a PIE with Grissom Elementary School in May of 2009.
PARTNERS IN EDUCATION provide a valuable link between the community and Tulsa
Tulsa's Partners In Education
program is a joint effort between
the Tulsa Metro Chamber and Tulsa
Public Schools. The program seeks to link community
resources with Tulsa's children in order to provide them with
the knowledge and skills necessary for future success.
Established in 1983, Tulsa's Partners in Education program
has brought thousands of volunteers into Tulsa Schools.
The Partners In Education program connects children and
teachers with corporate, education, volunteer, government
and civic leaders. These partnerships help educators improve
the academic and personal growth of all children. Our
mission is to unite businesses and the community with
schools for the common goal of increasing the quality of
education for all students in Tulsa Public Schools.
A partnership can be as simple as having lunch with a child,
offering your professional expertise, donating supplies and
many more. Every resource helps, and the sky is the limit
when it comes to partnership opportunities.

in Tulsa by sending emails about MET events. The MET sponsors events
to dispose of household chemicals, paints, oils and grease, as well
as educational services to teach safer alternatives to household pollutants
and proper storage techniques for household pollutants.
