Oakmore Homes Association
As described in our mission statement: The Oakmore Homes Association is a community of Oakmore neighbors committed to promoting and enhancing safety, beautification, community and property values in our neighborhood.
The Oakmore Homes Association is one of the oldest homeowners’ organizations in California . Established in 1926, we currently have over 230 member homes. By acting together, we add clout to neighborhood concerns and ensure that the interests and needs of Oakmore are heard by the City of Oakland . Our ability to realize civic improvements in the neighborhood grows in proportion to our enrolled membership. Active participation of members gives Oakmore its special vitality, which increase the value of the homes and the pleasure of living here. The OHA also publishes newsletters, brochures and a website focused on issues relevant to our neighborhood and sponsors community events like public “issue” meetings, and historic house tours.
Oakmore Homes Association is your voice!
Oakmore Homes Association Board members are sometimes asked, “Why join the Association? What can it do for me?” If you are a member, maybe you need to be reminded about the benefits of membership.
The Association is first and foremost, your representative to the City of Oakland . With our 220+ voices, we are able to get prompt attention from our City Council Representative, the Director of the Public Works Agency, and even agencies as far ranging as CalTrans. If we have concerns about safety issues such as the Leimert Bridge retrofitting, the rebuilding of the public stairways, or lighting, the Association represents our concerns to the City and pursues those issues until our community is satisfied.
On a more personal note, the Association is willing to look into matters between neighbors, help enforce and inform residents about local ordinances, and pursue enforcement of blight abatement. We also coordinate informational meetings to alert Oakmore residents to changes within our community, and foster social gatherings to encourage neighbors to get to know one another.
How much does the OHA membership cost?
Annual Dues are currently $75.00 per year. The maximum allowable dues are $100 per year unless the membership votes to increase it.
