League of Oakmont Maintained Area Associations nJohn Renwick


To help prevent entrance of unwanted animals into your home and yard, here are a few things everybody can do. • Repair damaged building ventilation screens. • Screen or close openings under overlapping roof lines. • Weather-strip front and side garage doors so they close tightly. • Seal all openings around pipes, cables and wires that enter the foundation. • Check garage shelves and storage lofts for rat evidence. • Stack firewood off the ground and away from buildings and fences. • Outside, feed your pet only the amount of food it will eat and do not leave food and water outside over night. • Store food in vermin-proof containers. • Restrict feeding of birds to an area that can be cleaned. • Pick up dog droppings. • Thin or remove ivy and dense vegetation. • Do not leave food out for wild animals. Wild turkeys continue to visit. One or two may be fine, but some Northern California Associations have found that the turkeys will start to make your home their home! This may result in turkeys on the roof and major roof damage along the expense that goes with a new roof. August Board Meeting: Monday, August 31, 12 noon, Room B Quarterly General Meeting: Wednesday, September 2, 7 p.m., West Recreation Center

The column provides an avenue where residents can submit letters to express opinion, criticism or praise. To the Editor: At long last, the West Pool remodel has been completed and the pool is open. On behalf of the Water Fitness Classes, I want to thank the long-time Central Pool users for sharing the pond during the remodel. It’s been cozy, to say the least, but we’ve tried to provide swimming lanes during class and we appreciate the flexibility of those who changed their swimming schedule to accommodate the classes. Thank you for your understanding. Cathy Rapp

Board Focusing On Future Needs

nStaff Report

The OVA Board of Directors has begun a planning process focused on facilities, services and finance. Over the next few months they will identify strategic areas for Oakmont. The first session was conducted with a facilitator during a workshop on Aug. 4. Chairman Frank Batchelor said the process will help directors better communicate with members about important issues and short-term directions. The directors will be using a variety of data to determine priorities for both facilities and member services and the finances needed to meet those priorities. In the first session directors discussed sets of assumptions about the current and future state of Oakmont. Coming sessions will focus on goals and action steps. The Aug. 4 meeting is posted online for viewing at
