Established in 1941,
in continuous operation ever since
Piedmont Pines wins praise from civic leaders as being one of Oakland's most organized and productive voluntary neighborhood associations.
When we speak, we're listened to.
Why? Decision makers know our residents care and stay engaged. We pitch in on beautification projects, keep one another informed, protect against crime, gain emergency preparedness skills, and the list goes on. And we vote.
We count on your voluntary dues
Our dues, which are completely voluntary, begin at only $35 for an entire calendar year. Visit the PPNA Projects tab and check out our Strategic Plan to see all your
association does on behalf of YOU, to make our neighborhood special, inviting, welcoming and FABULOUS. We can only do it with your support. Our dues year begins January 1, and all memberships expire on December 31. Keep your dues current so you don't miss out on important information.
