The Board of Directors of the Oakbridge Community Services Association recently completed a nearly two-year project to overhaul the Architectural Control Rules that apply to all 145 homes in Oakbridge. They’ve been whittled down to only 6 pages, and many confusing, redundant, and obsolete items were eliminated.
Since everybody in Oakbridge is required to abide by these rules, please take advantage of this opportunity to re-familiarize yourself with them. They’re available on the “Documents” page of this website: https://oakbridge.community/documents/
The Fall Raking event for the Oakbridge Common Areas will take place on Sunday, October 25 at 10 am. Anyone interested in helping should meet at the Oakbridge Neighborhood sign. We will expect that everyone will keep at least 6 feet apart from one another, and everyone is strongly encouraged to wear a face mask. The rain date for this event will be Sunday, November 8 at 10 am.
The next Oakbridge Neighborhood Association Board Meeting will take place on Wed., Oct. 21, at 7 pm over Zoom. Among other things, the Board will discuss changes to the Architectural Control Rules. We expect that at this meeting, the Architectural Control Board will present its recommendations to the full Board about what revisions to make to the Architectural Control Rules, based in part on input received from neighborhood residents. The Board may vote at this meeting on the final version of the Architectural Control Rules.
How To Vote Absentee.
Madison’s wonderful city clerk, Maribeth Witzel-Behl, and her supremely dedicated and competent staff have made it really, really easy to find out how, where, and when to vote in Madison. In particular, if you want to vote by absentee ballot (minimizing your exposure to the rest of the world), you can find out how at https://www.cityofmadison.com/clerk/elections-voting/voting/vote-absentee
That same website lists in-person absentee-voting locations and drop-off sites.
Are you registered to vote? Have you asked for an absentee ballot? Has it been sent to you? If you sent it back, has it been received? All this info available at the super helpful and easy-to-use website myvote.wi.gov – just enter your name and birthday and all will be made plain to you.
Now more than ever it’s important to get a jump on the process, because there will likely be unforeseen delays as we get closer to Tue. Nov. 3. Don’t let your vote go uncounted! Vote as soon as possible!

On Sat. Sep. 19 at 10:00 AM, the Board seeks input from community members on proposed changes to the ACR. The changes may be viewed here:
That’s the marked-up version, showing changes from the current ACR via text formatting: underlines for additions, strikeouts for deletions, and pink highlighting for explanations.
But, if you’d like to just see a “clean” version of the final product (if the proposed changes were all adopted), look here:
Besides attending the hearing, you can send comments via e-mail, using “ACR Comments” in the subject line, to:
If you’d like to participate in either event, RSVP by 5:00 PM on Wed. Sep. 16 to the OCSA Secretary at: RichardSRussell@tds.net

The next Oakbridge Neighborhood Association Board Meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 7 pm. Much of the meeting will be spent going over things that happened during the summer, as well as preparing/planning for the upcoming Public Hearing on the Architectural Control Rules. If you would like to attend, please let the Board know, and we will send you the Zoom link to click on to join the meeting. Please email email@example.com.
All Oakbridge residents are invited to attend the Board meeting.
Please note, however, that the Board meeting will NOT allow for public discussion of the Architectural Control Rules. We have set aside the morning of Sept. 19, starting at 10 am, for a Public Hearing expressly for the purpose of discussing the Architectural Control Rules. If you are not able to attend the Public Hearing but would like to provide input on the Architectural Control Rules, you can e-mail the Board, using “ACR Comments” in the subject line. The Board’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
