The GOHCA meeting was held on Tues. March 19th at 6:30. There was a large crowd - over 100 members were  on hand to enjoy the wonderful jambalaya dinner, visit with their neighbors and help to decide the business on the agenda.


The speed hump issue, allowing the GOHCA board to pay the $5,000.00 needed, to add to the $2500 raised by the residents of N. Oak Hills Pkwy., to pay half of the total cost of the speed humps that were installed on N. Oak Hills Pkwy.

The vote was taken by ballot - only 1 ballot per lot owner.  There were 44 voting for paying our cost of the speed humps and 38 voted against it.

Information about the current work going on in
Oak Hills 
(March, 2019)

Have you seen these markings on many of the Oak Hills neighborhood streets?


That's AT&T contract workers who are diligently trying to install Fiber Optic Internet.

"Fiber optic Internet sends data faster than basic cable. It's delivered on a dedicated line, which facilitates more consistent speed than cable. ... Fiber optic Internet is less likely to go down during a power outage. Because fiber optic Internet is made of glass, there is no electricity involved."  (https://www.attinternetservice.com/resources/fiber-vs-cable/)

Currently AT&T is working in our neighborhood installing Fiber Optic Internet in the parts of the neighborhood that have underground utilities.  (GOHCA has nothing to do with this!)

They have hired a company to do this work - their cars/trucks are not marked with a company name or AT&T, but they are the official installers of the wiring.

There are 4 crews working very hard to bring fiber optics to our neighborhood.


Their supervisor is Jack.  He is trying to hand out an information card about the work to the households affected by this. (see pdf of card below.)


Please be reminded that there is a 15' servitude for utilities - that is in all the property restrictions for the neighborhoods.  These installers may have to go into your backyard to install - sometimes digging underground.  But they do clean up & usually leave things looking nice.
