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.

What does 2024 bring to PPNA? 

For two decades, PPNA hosted its Annual Meeting in person each January. They were fun and very informative. Among the pandemic's lasting changes was the need for PPNA to take its meetings online. The silver lining in this is substantial cost savings, which allowed us to expand the number of forums (five in 2023!), and introduce a summer-time picnic to make up for the lost socializing. 

First up for this year was our Quarter 1 Town Hall.

February 26, 2024 exclusive webinar

City services, the big divide:

our expectations versus city resources


Oakland Councilmember Janani Ramachandran and City Administrator Jestin Johnson discuss their dissatisfaction with the City's core services and what they're working on to improve delivery to constituents like us.

May 2024 virtual Town Hall:
Fire Safety,  Insurance

We’ll hear from the people at Oakland Fire Department on how you can pass vegetation inspection, what's brewing in the crisis of insurance companies pulling out of high fire risk areas, and an upcoming ballot measure for a Wildfire Prevention Assessment District.

“The 2023 fire safety presentation was very helpful and practical.
I learned how to pass our inspection. I'm really worried about our fire insurance, though!”
--PPNA email.

August 2024 Family Picnic:
Eat. Play. Fun.

Time for fun!  Just before school starts in August, we’ll host our third annual PPNA Family Fun Picnic at Lake Temescal.  It’s a great way to mingle with neighbors you don’t see regularly and  have our kids frolic with neighborhood peers.

“So sorry to miss this year's picnic. I hear it was the social event of the season!” --PPNA email

October 2024 Elections Town Hall:
Be an Informed Voter

We'll get the low-down on Oakland measures and candidates so we can make informed decisions with our ballots.

“The 2022 election forum was very informative and unbiased. I felt more confident to cast my vote.”  --PPNA member


2023 was also a busy year for PPNA. Here are highlights and links to our forums

February 2023:  At long last, Phase 2 of our utility undergrounding project moved off dead-center into the operational phase. A PG&E  project manager was assigned to coordinate the utilities portion of the job; the design phase is now under way. Over the summer, Phase 3 was jeaoparadized by a CPUC decision that we're still trying to untangle.
