Frequently Asked Questions

See below for a listing of a few of the most frequently asked questions at Oak Park Village.

Who manages Oak Park Village?

This Community is managed by our elected volunteer Board of Directors. Our paid staff consists of our Community Association Manager (CAM) , our Maintenance Manager and their staff persons. We are a resident owned community COOP operating under Florida Statute 719 and HUD housing federal law.

How does the application to rent or buy work?

All potential buyers and renters guests staying longer than 30 days must have a background check and be interviewed by board members to reside in the community and have access to amenities.

Please visit the "Forms" section of this website to locate the occupancy application and follow the directions on the cover-page for submission. (LINK to FORMS)

Applications take up to 30 days and the “submission date” is the business day the application is completed in its entirety and all requested documents and requirements are provided. If a partial application is submitted, it is not considered "completed" and the 30-day countdown does NOT apply until all requested documents are submitted and all application fields are completed.

Please assign ONE person from your party to contact this office via e-mail or hard copy mail after 10 business days from submitting a completed application with any questions. Please understand, multiple e-mails, calls & voicemails from different individuals result in duplicate work to respond, and may cause confusion in different directions for the same matter. The best way to follow up, is through e-mail or letter from ONE sender and copy as many parties as you need so long as they do not reply and all communication comes from one individual.

If this cannot be achieved, we will revoke the courtesy of communicating with everyone EXCEPT the applicant(s) themselves.

Where do I obtain amenity access?

Owners will find access codes to the clubhouse, annex/library and WIFI in their owner documents. Anyone may ask the Oak Park manager for assistance at any time during office open hours or send them an email request.

The laundry is for owners, renters and guests. It is located in the same building, next to the office. Cost for washer and dryer use is posted.

How do I rent a marina slip or storage compound space?
