2011 HOLIDAY SHOWCASE

 

Another annual event that sets Noble off from some of the larger communities is the Holiday Showcase.  This activity is sponsored by the Noble Public Schools, the Noble Public Schools Foundation for Excellence, the Noble Chamber of Commerce, the Noble PTSA, and the Pioneer Library System.  The festival will be held at the Curtis Inge Middle School on North 8th Street from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM on Saturday December 10th.   Local merchants are able to offer their wares for shoppers looking for something with a local flair.  Much of the merchandise is locally made.  Most of the merchants have unique products that you may not find elsewhere.  The profits go to the school foundation. 

 

The Holiday Showcase also features plenty to eat, great entertainment and a visit from Santa Claus.  This year Noble students will be the featured entertainment with groups from the grade schools through high school performing between 12:00 PM (noon) until 2:00 PM.  Other musical groups will entertain before and after the school kids.   The Noble Pioneer Library is sponsoring a story time at 2:00PM.  Noble Band Director, Fred Queen, will have several school ensembles working the show for most of the day.  

 

The Noble PTSA will sponsor the food court and the Noble Choir will have Santa Claus available for photos all day.  This is only the second year for this great event.  Please plan to come out and enjoy!  It is really a wholesome Christmas event. 

 

                                    NOBLE PLANNING COMMISSION MEETINGS

 

In the past couple of news articles I have spoken about the Noble City Council’s activities.  I thought that you would also like to have some information about the Planning Commission.  The Noble Planning Commission meets once per month at 6:30 PM on the fourth Monday of each month.  The five commissioners are:  Chairman Lee Gray (At Large), Michael Sullivan (Ward 1), Louis Watts (Ward 2), David Lohaus (Ward 3), David Dallas (Ward 4).  The Planning Commissioners are appointed for three-year terms by the Noble City Council. 

 

The Planning Commission routinely reviews plat applications for new subdivisions, considers requests for zoning applications and lot splits.  If you live in the Noble City Limits you cannot subdivide your property (if you have less than ten acres) without the approval of the Planning Commission.  On most matters the Planning Commission makes recommendations to the City Council.   The decisions of the Planning Commission are supported by the Noble Comprehensive Plan that was adopted in January, 2007.  You can view the “Noble 2025” plan on our website:  cityofnoble.org.

 

In the coming months the Planning Commission will consider a new sign ordinance and parking in the front yards of residential subdivisions. 

 

Remember, help your city by purchasing locally when you can.   Your purchases help keep local services and products available and convenient.   Local purchasing also provides city sales tax which is Noble’s major source of funding.
