HOA or Services Fee

We are NOT a traditional HOA, we are simply a social organization, a non-profit HA. There are no HOA fees. The Oak Run Homeowners Association (ORHA) does not own any of the common areas. They are all owned by Oak Run Associates, Ltd. (ORA-Ltd), previously known as DECCA, the developer. The ORHA Board of Directors and various Officers are in charge of the use and scheduling of all common area venues. The residents pay a "Services Fee" (similar to an Amenities Fee) to ORA-Ltd.

The monthly Services Fee covers weekly garbage and yard waste pick-up, 24-hour security, basic cable TV (36 channels with one free DTA), community Channel-12 TV (info station for clubs, etc.), use of all facilities, maintenance of all recreational and common areas. The average services fee is $132 with the lower numbered neighborhoods being the lowest and the upper numbered neighborhoods the highest.

There are two types of properties in Oak Run, regular homesites and 'maintained' homesites. With a maintained homesite the services (amenities) fee includes these extra services: sprinkler system and the water used; mowing, edging, fertilizing and weed control of the lawn; trimming and mulching of the landscaping (unless you alter something). Villa homesites also include exterior pressure washing once a year and painting every 5 years. With a regular homesite you're on your own to provide the above services.

To know what a particular homesite's Services Fee will be is to contact the listing real estate agent or the ORA-Ltd officesHERE. There are so many variables that go into this fee that it would be extremely difficult to list all possible fee examples. And, the basic fees increase as you select premium services such as internet, phone, extended TV, movie channels, and HD. Fees are adjusted on a yearly basis to reflect the average CPI increase for the most recent 12 months.

Venue Responsibilities
Below is an abbreviated version of the venue responsibilities. Please view and download the complete requirements, policies and procedures HERE.

(activities are required to follow all ORHA policies and procedures for facility usage)

Every Oak Run facility Room Request that a requester signs comes with responsibilities.

1. There is a table and chair placement schematic posted at all of our facilities, Orchid Club, Island Club and Palm Grove. It is the responsibility of the user to place tables and chairs as indicated on the schematic back in place when your activities are over.

2. Trash must be bagged and put in dumpster nearby each facility and the can liner replaced for the next user.

3. Floors must be vacuumed as needed, if for some reason the vacuum cleaner has a problem call your DOD.

4. Kitchen, counter tops and equipment must be cleaned of grease. Damp mop floor as needed.

5. PERK coffee pots, if used, must be cleaned.

6. There is a trash can at the Orchid Club and Palm Grove plainly marked for Aluminum cans so please, no trash.

Groups that have weekly functions sometimes forget to call the DOD (Director on Duty). This should be done at least 5 days in advance, no later than 3 days prior to your function, if the sound room or kitchen is needed. If you choose not to call you may find yourself without a DOD available. If you are not on the DOD's schedule he/she may make their own personal plans and not be available for your call. At that point the only thing to do is to start down the Director list until you find one willing to help you.  

Phone Book Updates

Instructions for selecting "type" of phone book update being requested:

(CCI) Club Contact Info is selected when a club officer needs to update contact info in the Phone Book and on the Website.

(NLG) New Listing is selected when you are not in the current phone book at THIS HOUSE NUMBER. This usually means someone who is new to Oak Run but it also applies to someone who currently lives in Oak Run, but, in a different house.

(CRN) Correction is selected when you are changing the information currently in the phone book, such as a phone number.

(DLN) Deletion is selected when a person has moved and therefore is no longer living at that address in the current phone book.

Thatcher Dog Park
About the Park:

Since April, 2019, the park has offered 1.5 acres of perfect pooch playground. It's divided into 2 sections, one for larger dogs (18 inches or more) and one for smaller dogs (less than 18 inches). All residents are welcome to use the park by registering their dogs (2 per homesite) with the park committee.


Registration requires an annual fee of $36 per dog, a copy of each dog's current DAPP/DHPP and rabies vaccinations and a completed registration form.

Forms are available at any registration event or can be downloaded and printed here
The Rules & Regulations and usage Agreement  are included with the form.

Coffee Users Policy
For The Use Of New Grindmaster Coffee Brewers

Any organization in Oak Run can use the Coffee Brewers provided they have attended an orientation as to their use and operation.

ORHA will furnish the filters. The organization must furnish the coffee grounds, cups and condiments. (The exceptions are The Veterans Association of Oak Run, Hospice, and mourning services of residents of Oak Run.)

Any Director on Duty will be happy to assist any member of any Oak Run organization on how to operate the new Coffee Brewers.

Upon completion of use, the used coffee grounds must be emptied, the brewing baskets cleaned. The coffee shuttles must be completely emptied, rinsed, and the surrounding areas thoroughly cleaned.

Sound Room & Kitchen
Clubs, groups and organizations that need to have the Sound Room and/or Kitchen opened, should contact the Director-on-Duty, NOT SECURITY. Requests must be made at least 3 days before the requested opening. Any request made with less than 3 days notice may not be granted and is at the discretion of the Director on Duty. 

History Of The Website
The website (at the current address) was created by John Baccoli on January 23, 2004 as a personally-owned and personally-paid website. A predecessor site was created by John months earlier as an ISP domain from AT&T.

With very patient and helpful tutoring from Jim Dillman the site began to take shape. John's purpose for the site was to provide Oak Run residents with information such as Board meeting minutes, By-laws, Policies and Procedures and interesting coming events. These two early sites were well received by the community and John continued his service as Oak Run's Webmaster for four years.

In late 2006 after discussions with various Board members John decided to transfer ownership of the website to the Oak Run Homeowners Association (ORHA). With the transfer complete, in January 2007 Bill Pascoe became the ORHA Webmaster. Bill enlisted the help of Bob Sheetz and John McHale to obtain software that would make maintaining and expanding the site easier and less HTML code intensive.

Carrying on John's tradition of providing information to residents Bill began to include new pages for many clubs and organizations in Oak Run. Eventually the Channel-12 notices and links to local websites were added. Bill had many assistants during this time of expansion who provided content and other help with the new web pages. After four successful years Bill decided to step down as Webmaster.

In January 2011 Jim Waddell, ORHA President, began searching for a new Webmaster. In March 2011 Ron Kenyon assumed the role as ORHA Webmaster. Ron began a complete redesign of the website, adding many improvements and enhancements.

The site was reorganized, navigation aids were installed on all pages and new content was introduced. Along with increased content for established residents, content was added for new residents, renters and out of state readers (potential residents).

After more than nine years of community service, Ron officially retired in June, 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Ron will continue to serve into 2022. ORHA welcomes those who will carry on the volunteer tradition of John Baccoli, Bill Pascoe and Ron Kenyon.

This website continues to be the "Gateway To
Information" for Oak Run.
