Established in 1941


Piedmont Pines wins praise from many civic leaders as being one of Oakland's most organized and productive voluntary neighborhood associations. 

When we speak, we're listened to. 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.

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.

YOU: our audience and reason for being


Here are just a few of the questions speakers will address, based on your calls, emails, Nextdoor postings, and from having our ear to the ground. When you register, you can pose additional questions. If you've paid your 2022 dues, your question will be prioritized.

  • Homelessness: what's the prognosis? What's working?
  • Litter: How can we stop the explosion of litter across the city?
  • What federal and state help will Oakland get for our crumbly infrastructure?
  • How can Oakland better fund major capital projects like repairing the slide, path, barriers and road erosion at Ascot and Chelton? Storm drains on Camino Lenada? Drainage from Mastlands onto Larry Lane?
  • How can Oakland police balance resources to manage rise in both violent crime and property crimes? What's been reimagined so far?
  • How do PPNA streets fare in the new 5-year paving plan? What about the top of Park Blvd and Mountain Blvd near Ascot?
  • Chelton is in terrible shape, yet is slated for undergrounding; how will the two schedules be managed?
  • How are newly drawn up council district boundaries likely to affect us in PPNA?
  • City resources are now divvied up based on equity scores. How are these determined and what's been the outcome across the City?
  • Why are so many 311 cases closed out when work still remains?
  • How can we stem the tide of rampant property crimes like thefts of catalytic converters and car break-ins?
  • What's being done to crack down on sideshows?
