Services Fee
not HOA Fee:
The Oak Run Homeowners Association (ORHA) is NOT a chapter 720 HOA, they are a chapter 617 Not For Profit social organization. They have no HOA fees. ORHA does not own any of the common areas. They are all owned by Oak Run Associates, Ltd. (ORAL), the developer. The ORHA Board of Directors and various Officers are in charge of the use and scheduling of all common area venues. Residents pay a Services Fee (like an amenities fee) to ORAL.

This monthly 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 ones 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: lawn 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 find out what a particular homesite's Services Fee is contact the listing real estate agent or the ORA-Ltd offices (see above). 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 Services Fee increases as you elect premium services such as internet, phone, extended TV, movie channels, & HD. Fees are adjusted on a yearly basis to reflect the average CPI increase for the most recent 12 months. Compare our amenities, HERE.
 
Car Decal:
(RFID)
Car decals are available for vehicles, allowing automated entry at any of the three resident gates. The decals may be purchased at Community Services, by appointment, 854-6010. More information about Envera, RFID forms and the security gates, HERE.
 
Important
Notices:
1. If you or your contractor are planning to dig, call Sunshine One-Call Of Florida at 1-800-432-4770 to located buried cables and lines. Please call 3 days (72 hrs) in advance. The locate service is free. Repairing cut lines and cables is not free!

2. Please remember that each homeowner is responsible for maintaining their lamp post and mailbox, including, but not limited to, making sure your name and address are legible on the post at all times.

3. We have received notice from Mickey Thomason, Manager of the Cross Florida Greenway, that some Oak Run homeowners with properties adjacent to the Greenway are ILLEGALLY using this property for disposal of their tree, lawn & shrub debris. This not only creates a fire hazard but it complicates their efforts to try and do prescribed burnings. To prevent the involvement of Law Enforcement, this illegal act must stop immediately.
