Town Hall: Fire Safety

There will be a town hall meeting on July 7  by virtual streaming to give members an opportunity for an open exchange on the revised OVA Fire Safety and Control Policy Rules and Regulations in concert with the new Vegetation Management Plan for OVA.  

Oakmont members have until July 21 to review and comment on the revised OVA Fire Safety and Control Policy, Rules and Regulations. The full document is available here.

OVA directors passed a version of the rules last month and said they received  “excellent feedback” from Oakmont homeowners. The current document up for review by members has been edited “to reflect the suggestions of our residents and better serve the needs of the community” according to the resolution passed by the Board at its June 16 meeting.  

Under California Civil Code 4360, members of the Oakmont Village Association are given at least 28 days to review and comment on proposed rules. The Association must also provide the text of the rule and its purpose and effect as follows:  

Proposed Rule  Addition:  The Fire Safety and Control Policy, Rules and Regulation. 

Purpose and Effect:  Oakmont residents will be subject to fire safety and control measures at their homes and properties according to these rules, including fire inspections at their properties within Oakmont. 

Members who desire to do so will have an opportunity to make comments on the proposed changes before adoption by the Board (according to California Civil Code 4360 and 4040, respectively). If adopted, the new rules will become effective immediately.   


The Kiwanis Club of Oakmont, in partnership with OVA, is holding its semi-annual drive-through shredathon this Friday at Berger Center, 9:00 a.m. to Noon. We can accept the equivalent of five banker boxes of shredable paper goods. We encourage drivers to wear masks, remain in their cars and simply open the trunk for the boxes to be removed. The contents will be shredded on-site. Containers will be returned to the cars. There is no charge for this service, but any donations received will be used by Kiwanis to sponsor scholarships at two Santa Rosa high schools.

Wooley Weeders

Sheep have become an important part of fire prevention and weed abatement at Oakmont. They chew those long, dried-out grasses down to a nub and finish each days’ work, it’s assumed, happy and full. Special electric fencing and dogs help the shepherd manage these hungry grazers. Two Oakmonters have provided videos.
