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.
Most importantly, we need your
support! MAKE A DONATION!
Fill out the form
HERE and send in your
donation, or bring it with you to our annual meeting. Your contributions help to
fund expenses, projects, and legal fees to defend our neighborhood.
We thank the many homeowners who support our
continuing efforts to keep Oakes Estates a wonderful place to live, enjoy our
independence and lots of space, and raise our kids.

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.

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.
