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.
