Services Fee not HOA Fee:
The Oak Run Homeowners Association (ORHA) is NOT a chapter 720 HOA, we are a chapter 617 Not For Profit social organization. We have nothing to do with fees, liens, collections, foreclosures, mortgages, estoppel, ledger, W9 or anything else to do with property owned in Oak Run. For all such inquires please call Oak Run Associates, Ltd.
352-854-6210 or 352-854-5775

There are 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. The residents pay a Services Fee (similar to an amenities fee) to ORAL.


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 find out what a particular homesite's Services Fee is, contact the listing real estate agent or the ORAL offices, HERE. 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.

Groups that have weekly functions sometimes forget to call the DOD (Director on Duty).

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.

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 nearly 13 years of service, Ron decided to step down in January 2024.

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