OSCA currently has the following committees:
RECREATION COMMITTEE (“REC”)
The Recreation Committee coordinates, organizes and funds the community events that are held for the enjoyment of the community. Any excess funds that are raised at these wonderful events help to fund improvements to the community. It takes a great deal of volunteerism, hard work and creativity to make these events successful. Volunteers are always needed for this fun-filled committee!
ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW COMMITTEE (“ARC”)
The Board has appointed an Architectural Review Committee, that has the authority to approve, reject, modify, give conditional approvals, and give limited approvals of improvements and alterations to members properties as provided for in the Association’s Architectural Standards.
ARC meets every Friday (typically). Contact the office if you have any questions regarding the ARC process or to be added to an agenda. 805/472-2233, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Finance Committee assists the Board in the preparation of the pro forma budget each year, which projects the income and expenses for the upcoming year. The Finance Committee also assists the Board as needed with the review of the monthly financials, as needed, and the review of the Annual Financial Statements (Audit). The Committee typically meets monthly between June and September when preparing the Budget.
Oak Shores is proud to be recognized as a Fire Wise Community. Oak Shores is the first community in San Luis Obispo County to receive this designation. The certification implements a number of researched codes that help prevent homes from being destroyed in the event of a wildfire. The purpose of this Committee is to work with local agencies and homeowners in bringing awareness and education to make Oak Shores a Fire wise community, thereby mitigating fire risk.
The Newsletter Committee designs the quarterly Oak Leaves Newsletter to keep the members informed. Creative ideas and articles are always appreciated.
The Election Committee is established to count and tabulate all ballots in public at the Annual meeting and/or all special elections.
