How to Run for The Board...

 

The 2016 board election consists of two (2) positions. Any member of the Oakhurst Community Association may volunteer their time to serve on the Association's board.

The Oakhurst Community Association wants to give every association member the opportunity to run. In doing so, we want the process to be a simple path.

  • The registration period shall be from February 1 to March 11, 2016.
  • No applications will be accepted after the cut-off date of March 11th.
  • In order to get your name on the ballot, submit your information via the candidate online registration form.
  • Candidate information submitted via alternate methods, with additional attachments will not be processed.

As candidate information is collected by the Nomination Committee, each candidate will be placed on the election page of the Oakhurst at Kingwood website for viewing and added to the ballot.

The Nomination Committee will host a meet-and-greet event on March 18th, 2016, 6:30pm at the Oakhurst Golf Club.  At that time, residents will be able to meet the candidates in-person and ask them questions about running the association.
The election is held during the Association's annual member meeting, and is scheduled for 04/28/2016.

See the election page for additional information.

Volunteer for a Committee...

 

Managing any size community can be an overwhelming task. Your Association Board created several committees to assist with the organization, maintenance and upkeep of our community. 

All committees are made up of resident volunteers--who give their time and ideas; a committee chair--who leads and directs committee efforts; and an association board member—who serves to guide and advise the committee chair.

For more details on each committee or to join a committee, visit the Oakhurst at Kingwood committee page.

Meeting dates are posted on the committee pages and the community calendar.

We would love to see you at a committee meeting and hear your ideas!

Enjoying the Club...

 

One of the great things about living in coastal Texas is our beautiful winter weather. While it is not a guarantee for this time of year, it is nice when it happens. What makes our warm winters even more enjoyable is the easy access to a great golf course and a nice golf club patio to sit, enjoy the weather and enjoy a weekday lunch special starting at just $6.99.

You can pay for a round of golf for as little as $20.00 or you can get great discounted rates by becoming a golf club member. The Oakhurst Golf Club is owned and operated by an Oakhurst resident and is a public course; which means any member of the public can pay to play. Association dues do not include access to the golf club, which is privately owned property.

Memberships to the Oakhurst Golf Club are honored at their sister course, Kingwood Cove.

What Your Association Board Does for You...

 

As a recognized homeowner’s association (HOA), our community has an elected board of directors to manage the business of our community. The board consists of volunteers who execute a wide variety of tasks you may not be aware of. However, their work affects every single resident.

One of the most important things the board does is create and enforce the association rules. While some residents may not like being told what they can and cannot do, ultimately the board is looking out for the greater good of the community. By enforcing the rules, the board is doing its best to keep property values up and conflicts between neighbors down. Board members also help conceive and lead many of the projects that will improve the HOA.

Another major responsibility of the board is to manage the finances of and collect assessments from association members. Collecting this revenue is important for the stability and solvency of our association. These annual assessments pay for the common elements enjoyed by all residents. Additionally, these funds help to replenish reserve funds, which pay for major repairs and capital improvements.

Finally, the board acts on behalf of the association by hiring property managers, attorneys, contractors and other specialized professionals.

While it’s a big job, board members are eager to serve the residents and make the community a great place to call home.

Know the Rules...

 

Have you checked out the association’s Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) document? If not, now’s a great time to brush up on the do’s and don’ts of our community.

For those of you who were unaware, CC&Rs play a crucial role in keeping the association running smoothly and ensuring all association members are treated fairly and equally. They are legally binding rules and regulations each homeowner agrees to when purchasing a home within our community. If members rent their homes, it’s the member’s responsibility to ensure their renters are aware of and abide by our association's bylaws.

CC&Rs include stipulations on annual and special assessments, building design and additions, and the governance of the association. All residents need to understand these rules so they don’t unintentionally violate them.  Association members can be fined and—in extreme cases—sued for violating the CC&Rs. Members are empowered when they understand the rules and the procedures for changing or amending those rules.
 
So don’t be left in the dark—check out the association’s CC&Rs today!

The Public Safety Committee Needs Your Help...

 

As part of a continuing effort to keep Oakhurst a safe place to live, The Public Safety Program needs your help. Currently we only have just over 85% of the areas represented with Neighborhood Watch Captains.  We have several openings in Auburn Trails as well as various openings in the other Oakhurst sections. Being a Captain is easy:

  • meet and get to know your neighbors
  • set up a broadcast email list for you section
  • attend quarterly meetings to discuss current needs, training or problems as you see them
  • invite more neighbors to attend Crime Watch Meetings/Training
  • call the Sheriff’s Department to report suspicious activities
  • encourage neighbors to attend the annual National Night Out and meet even more neighbors

It’s just that easy.  We will help show you how to set up and follow through on all steps of this program. All you need to do is be a concerned resident of Oakhurst of Kingwood and contact the Public Safety Chair at:

publicsafety@oakhurstonline.org.
