Welcome to Moore!
A Letter From Our Mayor
On behalf of the City Council and the over 53,000 residents of the City of Moore, welcome to our community. It has been my privilege to serve as mayor for the past 15 years. During that time we have seen tremendous advances, both in residential areas and in business sectors, with new retail and service establishments and several new large employers. We are proud of our city’s history, but the best is yet to come.
New industrial prospects appear frequently, significant commercial growth is occurring along the Interstate 35 corridor, and the newer residential developments include larger, executive-type housing and gated communities. With this growth comes the need to plan for the future. The city is hard at work improving our public safety departments with the temporary half-cent public safety sales tax approved by voters in 2006. The funds from the public safety tax are being used to purchase new equipment for our fire and police, as well as the construction of new fire stations and a new Police/Emergency Management Center in Old Town. The city is also in the midst of constructing several street projects approved by voters in November 2008. Many other projects are underway in our community as well. All this is being done to make Moore a better place to live, work and raise a family. We look forward to meeting the challenges that lie ahead.
If you are visiting, we hope you will enjoy your stay and that you will return often. If you are relocating to Moore, you will be pleased with what our city has to offer. If you are considering starting a new business or moving your present business, let me urge you to look at Moore as a prime location. We stand ready to help make your business a success and welcome you to our community. Whatever the reason you are considering Moore, we thank you for your interest and are happy to assist you in any manner.
I invite you to visit us at www.cityofmoore.com for the latest information about our community. Make it a vital source for community information.
