After coming together as a neighborhood and obtaining over 300 signatures on a petition to relocate the potential homeless shelter/recovery facility, being built on Arcadia St., we have decided to establish the first ever Oak Island Neighborhood Association.
Sometime in the near future, we plan on filing the proper documents to become an official neighborhood organization.
Our goal is to make our neighborhood a better, safer, more informed, cleaner place to live.
We also hope to engage in thoughtful conversations with our government regarding any decisions being made pertaining to Oak Island’s future.
This is all in hopes to have a seat at the table, assuming our elected officials are open to engaging with the association.
We don’t expect much but feeling safe in our homes is one thing we all expect to have at the end of the day.
We now have a stronger neighborhood with residents that will continue to look out for one another.
One of our first missions in early discussions is donating our time as well as clothes, socks, and other essentials needed to help the homeless population.
