In bringing unity and association to whom lives in the Oakes Estates we discussed looking into having either a bumper sticker, magnet or a decal made with Oakes Estates oak tree logo made to be able to hand out to members.

Oakes Estates Advisory Board Minutes

Directors present: Karl Fry, Roland Fondessey, Hiram Garcia, Terry Iamurri, Mike Vitte, Jim Rice, Bob Walker, John Nicola, Tim Witherite and Nancy Berens. A quorum was present. Meeting was called to order at 7:04 p.m.

 

Approval of March minutes: Jim made a motion to approve the minutes and Roland seconded and the motion carried.

 

Treasurer’s report: John Nicola reported a bank balance of $4092.32. We have 13 paid members. John felt membership could be hurt this year by the sending of a card verses an annual letter with a fill out form for membership this year. It was discussed that Karl may send out a letter when the Valewood Extension is about to open with a notice to include a membership form.

 

Old Business:

 

Valewood Drive Extension: Tim and Roland said the project is progressing with bit of a slow start, but on track. It is projected to take 4-6 months to complete. Ordering the traffic light pole for the intersection could be one of the slower items. It is expected to be complete by September, possibly sooner.

 

Landscaping Update for Immokalee @ I-75: Karl reported that the budget for design is $50,000. and will be done by June. The county got a grant for $400,000. for installation of the plantings that will start mid- November and be finished by February. Because of very short notice no one on the board was able attend the county meeting for this. We have not been updated by Commissioner Henning’s  office. Bob Walker offered to contact him and report back with his findings.

 

Neighborhood Signs: Karl showed how one of the flood lights for lighting the sign at Vanderbilt has been broke. The ground is very hard with rock. When mowing and moving the lights for maintenance it was most likely broke. Karl will buy and install PVC sleeves for the lights to fit into to try remedy the situation.

 

Neighborhood Communication Strategy: Karl would like us to use as many strategies as possible to try to reach our residents. Being friended on Facebook, sending a newsletter, email blasts inviting you to Facebook to visit us. Anything we can do reach out to our neighbors for them to know about us. We would like to connect and let the neighborhood know we are trying to communicate and like to hear from them. Our Webmaster has over 100 emails, but we have approximately 525 properties. It would be helpful if more families would supply their emails for updating our list. Many received email blasts from Chuck our webmaster about tonight’s meeting.

 

Open Agenda:

 

North Naples Baptist Church update: Gayle Hahe reported moving into Spring they have movie madness, youth homerun, men’s basketball among many activities at the church. It is open to everyone.

 

Semi’s On Oakes Blvd.: Many of us have noticed more large trucks and semi’s traveling on Oakes Blvd. then cutting up Tarpon Bay Blvd. Roland offered to speak to a Collier County Deputy that is on Autumn Oaks and ask him to monitor this for us.

 

Adjournment: Bob Walker made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:55p.m., it was seconded by Roland Fondessey. The motion passed.
