Welcome to the Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc.'s website.  Our organization makes a filing each year 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 Lakeland, Florida's city limits and is comprised of beautiful single family one and two story homes built on landscaped lots in an upscale country setting within Imperial Polk County.  

Oakwood Knoll is situated near schools and colleges, airports, theaters, churches, restaurants, banks, shopping centers, golf courses, spring fed lakes, Interstate 4, the Polk Parkway, the Detroit Tigers' summer home,  municipal, county and state parks; and the award winning "Lakeside Village,"
https://www.shoplakesidevillage.net which some say has vestiges of Disney World. 

In fact, the Disney World Resort https://www.disneyworld.disney.go.com itself is located only an hour away, if you take the Polk Parkway.                                                               

Sturdy brand new painted metal mailboxes, posts and lettering were furnished by the Association to each Lot Owner in December 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 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 and post furnished by the Association.

Also please note that our Association's "Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions(CC&R's)" do not allow vehicles to be parked on the grass or lawn of any Homeowner's front yard, side yard or back yard - nor on the grass or lawns of our HOA Common Areas.  In addition, inoperative (including unregistered) vehicles are not allowed to be parked in driveways.

In addition to other restrictions related to aesthetics, uniformity, and harmony of Oakwood Knoll homes and lots, the "Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R's)" do not allow satellite dish antennas to be installed where they can be seen from the front of any Lot.

Finally, please remove your County provided garbage receptacle to where it cannot be seen from the front of your Lot by the end of pick-up day which normally is on Fridays, unless a mid-week holiday changes the pick-up day to Saturday.

All Members, as well as occupants of homes owned by a Member, are encouraged to attend the bi-monthly Board of Director and Architectural Review Board Meetings.  

If Members, or occupants of homes owned by Members, are not receiving "e-mail" invitations to our Board of Director and ARB meetings as well as other HOA related notifications, please send a short "e-mail" message  to info@oakwoodknoll.com which will automatically be forwarded to the Board of Directors.  You will then automatically begin receiving notices via "e-mail" regarding future Board of Director and ARB meetings as well notifications of Oakwood Knoll Community-wide events and announcements.   Your e-mail address and telephone numbers will not be shared with any person or entity, other than the Board of Directors, without your permission.

In the meantime, please check our "Calendar" website page.  There you will find the dates and times when Board meetings have been scheduled in 2015 as well as other HOA related activities.

Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc., now has a Facebook page.  Find us on https://www.facebook.com by looking up "Oakwood Knoll Home Owners Association" in "Facebook" groups. 

If a Member or occupant is having issues involving window repair, maintenance or replacement, please e-mail Bill Upleger a message at oakwoodknoll@verizon.net.  Mr. Upleger will provide information on where parts can be obtained to repair or to replace windows as well as a list of local window installation contractors and suppliers. 

Each Member's Year 2015 Annual Dues have been reduced from past years dues amounts down to $125.00, less a discount of  $25.00, if paid in person while physically attending the Thursday, February 5, 2015 Annual Meeting.  For those Homeowners who do not attend the Annual Meeting, your Year 2015 dues of $125.00 must be received by the Treasurer no later than Sunday, March 1, 2015.  Dues should be paid by a personal check, by a money order or by a cashier's check made out to Oakwood Knoll HOA, Inc. and should be mailed to:

Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc.
Attention:  Treasurer
Post Office Box 5841
Lakeland, Florida 33807-5841

Be sure to indicate on your check, money order or cashier's check your house number.

If your dues are not paid by Sunday, March 1, 2015, then your dues will be in "arrears," and the Association will have to apply a $20.00 late charge to your account each subsequent month not paid, not to accede $200.00 in a single year. 

For information, a 2015 HOA dues notice letter, and an accompanying invoice, were mailed to each Member's address of record on Monday, December 15, 2014.  The invoice shows your 2015 dues of $125.00, plus any balance owed from previous years.  Subsequent periodic invoices will be 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 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. As said above, the Association will not share any Member's or occupants "e-mail" address or telephone number with any other person or entity without permission.

Oakwood Knoll Homeowners Association, Inc.'s Year 2015 Annual Meeting and first "new" Board of Director's Meeting both have been scheduled to take place on Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 7:00 PM a block away at the Polk County Medulla Resource Center on 1049 Parker Road, Lakeland, Florida 33811
