|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.
(DECCA), the developer. The residents
pay a "Services Fee" (similar to an
Amenities Fee) to DECCA. The ORHA
Board of Directors and various
Officers are in charge of the use and
scheduling of all common area venues.
Services Fee covers weekly garbage and
yard waste pick-up, 24-hour security,
basic cable TV (22 channels),
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 $118 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.
The best way to know what a particular
homesite's Services Fee will be is to
contact the listing real estate agent
or the DECCA offices (HERE
There are so many variables that go
into this fee it would be extremely
difficult for us to list all possible
fee examples. And, the basic fees
increase as you select premium
services such as internet, phone,
extended TV, movie channels, & HD.

great success. Nearly 60 "newbies" attended

and answered questions from the audience.

|History Of The Website
website was created by John Baccoli on January
23, 2004 as a personally-owned and
personally-paid website. 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 & Procedures and
interesting coming events. The resulting site
was well received by the community and John
continued to serve Oak Run as Webmaster for
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 new 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
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 messages 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 to put together a new Web
Team. In March 2011 Ron Kenyon assumed the
leadership role as ORHA Webmaster. Ron and his
team completely redesigned the website adding
The site was organized, navigation aids were
installed on all pages and new content was
introduced. Along with increased content for
established residents, Ron also added content
for new residents, renters and out of state
readers (potential residents).
The Web Team carries on the
volunteer tradition started by John Baccoli,
continued by Bill Pascoe and now led by Ron
Kenyon. From the beginning this website has
been and continues to be the "Information
Gateway To Oak Run".
