Welcome to the Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc.'s website. Our organization is filed with the Florida Secretary of State as a "non-profit corporation." See https://www.sunbiz.org. The Oakwood Knoll Community is located just south of the city limits of Lakeland, Florida and is comprised of beautiful single family homes and landscaped lots in an upscale country setting within Imperial Polk County.
Oakwood Knoll is situated near schools, airports, theaters, churches, restaurants, banks, shopping centers, Interstate 4, the Polk Parkway, the Detroit Tigers' summer home, county and municipal parks; and the award winning "Lakeside Village," https://www.shoplakesidevillage.net which some say has vestiges of Disney World.
Sturdy new mailboxes, posts and lettering were furnished by the Association to each Lot Owner in December of 2013 (on a one-time basis). These mailboxes and posts should remain white and no other color is approved by the Association.
Please CLOSE YOUR MAILBOX DOOR after getting your mail. Mailbox doors left open can make a mailbox's contents very vulnerable to theft and also makes your mailbox much more susceptible to damage. Each Lot Owner is responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing their new mailbox or post which was been furnished by the Association.
Also please note that our "Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions" DO NOT ALLOW VEHICLES TO BE PARKED ON THE GRASS or LAWN of any Homeowner's front, side or back yard - - or on the grass or lawns of our HOA common areas.
In addition to other restrictions, our "Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions" DO NOT ALLOW SATELLITE DISHES to be seen from the front of any Lot.
All Members, as well as Occupants of homes owned by a Member, are highly encouraged to attend the bi-monthly Board of Director and ARB Meetings.
If Members, or Occupants of homes owned by Members, are not receiving "e-mail" invitations to our Oakwood Knoll Board of Director & ARB meetings, please send a short "e-mail" message to firstname.lastname@example.org as well as to email@example.com . This way, each Member, as well those of you who are Occupants of a home owned by a Member, can be assured of being added to the Association's "e-mail" list. Then you will begin automatically receiving notices via "e-mail" regarding future Board of Director and ARB meetings as well notices regarding Oakwood Knoll Community-wide events and announcements. In the meantime, please check our "Calendar" page where Board meetings and other HOA activities are posted.
Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc., Lakeland, Florida is on Facebook! Find us on https://www.facebook.com by looking up "Oakwood Knoll Home Owners Association" in "Facebook" groups. Since this is a "closed group" which primarily has been set up for our Members, Members, individuals and organizations will need to "request to join." It should not take long to receive an acceptance from the administrator.
If any Members are having issues with the windows of their homes, let Bill Upleger know by e-mailing him a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mr. Upleger will provide the Member with information on where to obtain parts to repair or to replace them as well as a list of local window installation contractors.
Each Member's Year 2014 Annual Dues were $235.00 (discounted by $35.00 if paid on or before Thursday, February 6, 2014), and should have been received by the Treasurer no later than Saturday, March 1, 2014.
If your dues were not paid, then your dues are in "arrears," and, unfortunately, the Association has no choice but to apply a late charge of $20.00 a month to your account. Dues should be paid by a check or by a money order made out to Oakwood Knoll HOA, Inc. and should be mailed to:
Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc.
Post Office Box 5841
Lakeland Florida 33807-5841.
Be sure to indicate on your check what your house # is.
For information, a 2014 HOA dues letter was mailed to each Member's address of record in February of 2014 which showed pre-payments, full payments, and any balance each Member owed. Subsequently, periodic invoices have been mailed to those Homeowners who are behind on their dues.
If the Treasurer has the Member's "e-mail" address, the Treasurer will "e-mail" a receipt to the Member. Since it is in everyone's interest to keep expenses to a bear minimum, the Association will normally not physically mail receipts to each Member through the U. S. Postal Service. If the Treasurer does not have a Member's "e-mail" address, a Member's check will have to serve as proof of payment. The Association will not share any Member's "e-mail" address with any other person or entity without permission of the Member.
Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc.'s Year 2015 Annual Meeting as well as its first Board of Director's Meeting next year have both been scheduled for Thursday, February 5th, 2015 at 7:00 PM at the Polk County Medulla Resource Center on 1049 Parker Road, Lakeland, Florida 33811.
