Some people who have Claremore addresses do not live in the Corporate City Limits. If you are unsure if you are a City of Claremore or Rogers County resident this may help you determine which is accurate. If you live south of Lowery Road and North of Flint/King Road you are probably inside the city limits. If your zip code is 74019, your street address has five digits or you live on a street numbered above 450, you are a Rogers County resident.

The planning staff, on behalf of the City of Claremore, is responsible for upholding the current Codes and Ordinances fairly and evenly among all citizens. Codes and Ordinances must change as our City continues to grow and as state and federal laws mandate. Often, any conditions that existed before the passage of a new ordinance are legal non-conforming uses, commonly referred to as “grandfathered” uses. Alternatively, your neighbor may not have followed the proper permitting procedures leaving staff unaware of a violation. If that is the case, the Claremore Code Enforcement can address this problem. ( Planning and Zoning - City of Claremore )

The Planning and Zoning division directs proposed development and growth in Claremore through existing Codes and Ordinances such as the Comprehensive Plan, Subdivision Regulations and City Codes and Ordinances. We do not tell individuals or organizations what they can or can not locate in Claremore, but do advise them of zoning codes and other pertinent features that detail what can and can not be approved in certain areas of the city.

There are four steps to remember when choosing a child safety seat. 1. Infants should be in rear-facing infant or convertible seats from birth to at least one year and 20 pounds. 2. Toddlers should be in forward-facing car seats or convertible seats from at least one year and 20 lbs to around four years and 40 pounds. 3. Booster seats are for children up to age six. (Height and weight recommendations vary for different seat manufacturers, so always check the seat instructions and vehicle owners manual). 4. Seat belts should be worn by all children and adults taller than 4'9" and more than 70-80 pounds. View infant/child car seats ( Police - City of Claremore )

NHTSA recommends that child safety seats be replaced following a moderate or severe crash in order to ensure a continued high level of crash protection for child passengers. NHTSA recommends that child safety seats do not automatically need to be replaced following a minor crash. Minor crashes are those that meet ALL of the following criteria: The vehicle was able to be driven away from the crash site; The vehicle door nearest the safety seat was undamaged; There were no injuries to any of the vehicle occupants; The air bags (if present) did not deploy; AND There is no visible damage to the safety seat. Clarifying the need for child seat replacement will reduce the number of children unnecessarily riding without a child safety seat while a replacement seat is being acquired, and the number of children who will have to ride without a child seat if a seat were discarded and not replaced. The clarification will also reduce the financial burden of unnecessary replacement. For more information... ( Police - City of Claremore )

You can contact both the Claremore Police Department and the Claremore Fire Department. Officials from either department will be happy to assist you in selecting or installing the proper car seat for your child. ( Police - City of Claremore )

A watershed is an area that drains to a common waterway, such as a tributary, stream, creek, lake, river and ultimately the ocean. Claremore’s watersheds are Cat Creek, Dog Creek, Claremore Lake and the Verdigris River. ( Stormwater - City of Claremore )

Stormwater occurs naturally when it rains or snows. Water flowing off your yard, sidewalk or street flows down to the curb and into the nearest storm drain or ditch. From there, it flows into the vast network of underground pipes and tunnels that make up the storm drain system and is carried to Cat Creek or Dog Creek. Contrary to popular belief, stormwater runoff does not go to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. ( Stormwater - City of Claremore )

As stormwater runs off of rooftops and lawns and down driveways and streets, it picks up pollutants and debris. In developed areas where much of the land surface is covered by buildings and pavement, water cannot soak into the ground. As a result, the stormwater flows over these impervious surfaces and picks up many toxic chemicals from motor oil, lead from auto exhaust, and zinc from roof drains and tires. Stormwater may also contain fertilizer, pesticides, leaves and grass clippings, sediment, bacteria, viruses, and other disease-causing microorganisms can abound in storm water that carries pet waste and litter. These chemicals may kill or impair the health of aquatic life. They make waterways unsafe for swimming and other types of water recreation. ( Stormwater - City of Claremore )

Non-point source pollution is polluted stormwater runoff that cannot be traced to a single source. ( Stormwater - City of Claremore )

The City of Claremore can only maintain creeks or streams on public property. It is the responsibility of the home or business owner to maintain creeks or streams on private property. ( Stormwater - City of Claremore )

If you see debris accumulating in a creek that could cause a blockage of water flow, please call the Public Infrastructure Department at (918) 341-0133. ( Stormwater - City of Claremore )

Raw water quality affects the treatability of our drinking water. Sometimes during floods or extremely hot weather, taste and odor causing compounds are present in our source water which conventional treatment will not remove. During these times additional treatment methods are used to enhance treatment. Taste and odor do not affect the safety of our drinking water. ( Water Filtration - City of Claremore )

This is your personal preference, if you choose to have a filter or additional treatment device on your side of the meter, be certain to have it installed by a licensed plumber and maintain it according to manufacturer specifications. ( Water Filtration - City of Claremore )

We treat the filters with the maximum amount of chemicals allowed by the Department of Environmental Quality, keep the grass trimmed low and routinely clean all external fixtures. In addition to working to keep the plant clean, we have lined the fence surrounding the treatment plant with a fine mesh to keep the flies from migrating and planted a line of fast-growing Evergreen trees to serve as a buffer between the treatment plant and the nearby neighborhood. ( Water Reclamation - City of Claremore )

It depends upon several factors which affect the functions of the plant. Excessive flow, draining of stormwater collection basins or episodes of toxic influent such as oil can upset the normal functions of the plant which results in odors. ( Water Reclamation - City of Claremore )
