Welcome to the Home Page of the Piñon Oaks Folks

pinon oaks entrance signWe are a voluntary organization of residents and property owners in the Piñon Oaks sub-division of Prescott, Arizona.

We are located to the west of Willow Creek Road at the intersection of Pioneer Parkway on both the north and south sides of the Parkway.

The mission of Piñon Oaks Folks (POF) is to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of life in this subdivision for the benefit of all who live or own property here. We are interested in matters such as responsible land use, environmental protection, advocacy, communication and social interaction among owners and residents.

Any owner or renter in the Piñon Oaks sub-division is eligible to join our organization. Please see the Membership Information section below for more details and how to become a member.

Firewise Certification

firewise presentationFolks,

After a nearly two-year coordinated effort, Piñon Oaks received its official FIREWISE neighborhood certification. This photo was shot at a recent PAWUIC meeting. I wish that everyone on the Piñon Oaks Steering Committee could have been there to be included, but we can take another picture at a future Steering Committee meeting perhaps next to one of the posted FIREWISE signs to post on our website.

Speaking of our FIREWISE signs, we got 4 signs (2 for the North and 2 for the South Side) to put up at the entrances to our neighborhoods. After the PAWUIC meeting, Rich Hall and I drove over to the Prescott City Hall to obtain permission to mount these sighs on existing Prescott city sign supports.

We (myself, Jim Campbell, and Rich Hall) will try now to put together a grant proposal for this year funds to clear perimeter areas of the South Side. We'll review this at our next Steering Committee meeting.

Again, my thanks to everyone (especially Yavapai County Supervisor Brown, Past PAWUIC Chair Bob Betts, Chief Steve Lombardo, and AZ DFFN Dude Jake Guadinana) for their support to our neighborhood fire safety effort!

Regards,
Jim Zimmerman Chair, POF Steering Committee

Picnics and More

These picnics are held at various times and places throughout the year and are very popular with our members. This particular one was held at the Heritage Park Garden ramada and was very well-attended by Piñon Oaks Folks members.

For more pictures of one of our social get-togethers, please see our Photos page.


Why do we Have a Neighborhood Organization?
