URGENT changes to our
neighborhood and traffic
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Destiny Church, located on the West
side of Hidden Oaks Lane, has petitioned to expand to
TRIPLE ITS CURRENT SIZE
and add hundreds more cars per day to our neighborhood.
Church, who bought the property from Faith Community Church in 2014, is a
fast-growing church with a formal vision of becoming a Mega-Church. They have
activities 7 days/nights a week and regularly exceed the current parking and
attendance guidelines for their structure and property now.
OAKES BLVD IS THE ONLY
WAY IN OR OUT!
If approved, the
intersection at Oakes Blvd. and Hidden Oaks Lane will become similar to Spanish
Oaks Lane with turn lanes required in both directions. ALL OAKES RESIDENTS WILL
FEEL THE IMPACT OF INCREASED TRAFFIC.
The Standing Oaks PUD will begin soon
which will increase traffic substantially already. Approved
10 years ago, this parcel between Standing & Shady Oaks Lanes and I-75 will
include up to 164 condos and townhomes. New raised medians with plant vegetation
will be added to the middle of three Oakes Blvd intersections adding a natural
calming effect. However, the development is only accessible via Oakes Blvd with
single turn lanes to be added on Shady Oaks and Standing Oaks.

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
Blvd is no longer in the long-range plan to be four-laned
speed limit has been reduced from 45 MPH to 35 MPH
lanes should always remain dead ends and never be connected to Logan
streets have names rather than numbers
beautiful signs announcing the neighborhood from every point of
a neighborhood park funded, built, and maintained fully by the
distribute safety and crime alerts from the Sheriff’s Department
corners have had asphalt added to protect lawns and make turns safer
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 COUNTY.
ALL WE ASK IS THAT YOU
RESPOND WHEN ASKED FOR YOUR INPUT. HERE’S WHY:
year, we queried the county about potential solutions to congestion as
well as automobile and pedestrian accidents at the Spanish Oaks / Oakes
Blvd intersection. Collier County responded with a recommendation to add
a 4-way stop sign. We emailed our 240-member email list not once or
twice, but three times for a vote on whether to add the stop sign
or not. Only 45 people responded. Although over 85% of
respondents were in favor of a stop sign, the County did not feel that
we received enough responses to be confident that a majority of
homeowners wanted the stop sign. The county will not move forward
without our blessing.
WE CAN ONLY REPRESENT YOU IF YOU
WEIGH IN ON IMPORTANT ISSUES.

Closing of North End of Oakes Blvd
The results from the June 24th, Safety
Commission Meeting that Bob Walker and Karl Fry attended were that there is no
tangible reason to close the north end of Oakes Blvd. The Safety Commission felt
there was merit in the proposal to eliminate the left turn lane that allows you
to cut through the median to head south on Oakes when traveling westbound on
Immokalee Road. The county’s in-house design team will begin conceptual drawings
to eliminate the westbound turn lane and subsequent expansion of the eastbound
turn lane onto Valewood Drive north. We will be notified of a public meeting for
the final plans. (SEE
THIS AND MORE IN THE CURRENT OAKES BOARD MINUTES)
(medical/Office Development) Final Negotiated design reviewed:
The engineer firm Grady Minor left large scale exhibits
used during the NIM which were used to review the proposed Southbrooke project.
Karl reviewed many of the design negotiations that have come into play thus far
with the developer. These will be posted on the website for anyone to see. After
much discussion of the buildings, the type of business use, landscaping and the
aesthetics Bob Walker made a motion to approve for the board to vote by email
for reconsideration the use of slash pines in the landscaping the south and east
walls for an alternative plant list being defined in conjunction with county
landscape architects and our local arborist Peter Goodin, former Oakes board
member. Mike Vitte seconded the motion and the motion carried.
