Oakhurst HOA
Committees

In an effort to more efficiently attend to the needs of the Oakhurst Community Association, its Board of Directors will annually review the community’s committee needs and appoint chairs to each of the constituted committees.
At the January regular Board of Directors meeting, committees will be constituted and chairs will be appointed by the Board for a term of twelve months.
The number and type of committees could vary annually based on the association’s needs. Committees serve in an advisory capacity to the Board, except for the Architectural Review Committee which has decision-making authority derived from the association’s governing documents.
Two types of committees:
Standing committees, such as architectural review committee and the election committee, remain in operation indefinitely and are required by the covenants and State of Texas statutes.
Ad-hoc committees are typically task-oriented and disband when their goals have been achieved.
The Board has developed charters for each committee to clearly articulate guidelines for their structure, function, responsibilities, limitations and term limits. Charters will be reviewed annually to ensure they remain in line with the Board’s vision.
If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering on any of the committees, please select the committee you are interested in below and fill out your contact information.

Having a Block Party
One of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to meet your neighbors is by throwing a block party. When neighbors pitch in, the result is a light workload for the organizers that’s as enjoyable to put together as it is to attend. Our Texas weather is not ideal for July or August outdoor events, so block parties during the fall are good alternatives. We’ve collected some great ideas from our Oakhurst neighbors to help you get started.
Make a plan: Decide if your block party is going to have a theme and what types of food you are going to serve. Make a list to ensure you are not forgetting anything.
Decide on a location: Contact the public safety chair or your neighborhood watch block captain to help coordinate a suitable location and a police presence if needed.
Put the word out: Your Neighborhood Watch captain has contact information for most of your neighbors. As official community representatives, captains want to meet each neighbor in their zone, and this is an excellent opportunity to approach each household about a positive, friendly event.
Share the workload: Speak with your neighbors and get volunteers to help you coordinate the block party. Doing it all yourself can take the joy out of the event.
Keep a record: As you speak to neighbors about attending or volunteering, keep a record of who is bringing what food items and supplies or if they are interested in setting up or cleaning up. This will help you stay organized and know that you have plenty of help and keep you from ending up with 12 of the same side dishes.
Remember, block parties are casual events for homeowners who may have just one thing in common – the neighborhood. Have fun and talk with your neighbors.
