ENJOY COFFEE & DESSERT! MARCH 5th
If you find this neighborhood unique and special, it is partly due to the
quiet work of a volunteer board of directors over the past 25 years.
DID YOU KNOW? If you own property in Oakes
Estates, you are a member of our neighborhood association. The Oakes Estates
Neighborhood Association (OENA) has been a powerful force to preserve, protect,
and enhance our safety, freedom, and independence.
A Few Achievements
- The speed limit has been reduced from 45
MPH to 35 MPH
- Our lanes should always remain dead ends
and never be connected to Logan Blvd
- We have beautiful signs announcing the
neighborhood from every point of entry
- We distribute safety and crime alerts from
the Sheriff’s Department
- Commercial projects and churches must
negotiate with our board to get county approval
Consider what this neighborhood might be
without a unified voice with Collier County.
YOUR OENA IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS IN COLLIER
There is a critical issue now facing all of
us and the association desperately needs your input to shape the future of our
neighborhood. Do you want commercial uses inside our community boarders? That
very well may happen if we don’t have your input and support. Everyone should
plan on attending the annual meeting on March 5th.
There is an effort to change the zoning on
13.66 acres inside our neighborhood boundaries to a commercial use. Should this
effort succeed, the impact to traffic in and out of our neighborhood is likely
to dramatically increase, which could impact our quality of life and property
The board has been effective in the past
negotiating with developers, county commissioners and zoning officials to
maintain residential zoning inside our neighborhood. Without a unified voice
telling the commissioners we are against this kind of change, the pressure they
feel from these commercial interests may be more than they can resist.
If you would like to hear more about what your
neighborhood association is doing and about other threats to your neighborhood,
please come to the annual meeting on March 5th and get connected with your
neighborhood association. Mark Strain, the Collier County Planning Commission
Chairman, will be in attendance to present information on the Collier County
Growth Management Plans. We would like to see you there.
WE CAN ONLY REPRESENT YOU IF YOU WEIGH
IN ON IMPORTANT ISSUES.
