Welcome to the website of the Olde Oaks Community Improvement Association (OOCIA) in the beautiful community of Olde Oaks & Waterford Park. The OOCIA represents the interests of over 1550 homeowners in this Northwest Houston neighborhood.
The Board Members of the OOCIA have created this website for current and prospective community residents. You can find everything you need to know about our neighborhood, as well as our local community. Please take time to look around this site for guidance with the rules and restrictions, architectural guidelines and request forms, committee information, community events, links of local interest, and more.
The Board of Directors are elected by the homeowners and manage the daily affairs of the Association with the assistance of our management company, Crest Management, AAMC (Crest). Crest manages the operations and legal affairs of the association. Crest Management's staff are trained to respond to questions from association members and can be directly contacted via email or via phone at (281) 579-0761.
The Board anticipates that you will love our beautiful community as much as we do and we invite you to be involved - whether it be simply attending the monthly meetings, being a part of the Board or Committees, or with our community interest groups.
The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations. Don’t miss out!
A neighborhood-wide garage sale is a good alternative to random individual garage sales, provides motivation to clear up some clutter, helps coordinate security awareness on the designated days and is an excellent opportunity to meet some of your neighbors as you sell or shop for treasures.
Take this opportunity and get motivated to clear out some clutter! Choose one day or both days to participate. Send an email to email@example.com if you wish to be included on the participants Google Map and List by September 20th, later submissions might be accommodated but it’s not guaranteed. The email should include name, address, cell contact#, day(s) participating and some general descriptions of items offered & special items of note (for example: wall art, home décor, kitchenware, treadmill etc. etc.). Keep in mind this is a Volunteer driven activity and assistance will be needed at least to set out and pick up the signage entry signage, please email firstname.lastname@example.org also to volunteer.
Spread the word to your treasure-hunting friends and groups. Participants, especially, should take initiative to promote their individual sales on various sites such as the Facebook Beg, Borrow & Barter sites where pictures of items can be included and then highlight Community Garage Sale with map link as an extra draw. The Google Map for the event is dynamic so as more participants opt in then that info will be added to the Map. Once you open the Map you can click on individual pointers to see the general description of items offered at that location.

If you are not participating in the community sale make sure that you keep your garage doors shut and doors, gates locked regardless of whether you are home or away. Don’t leave things out that might attract criminal attention and can be quickly grabbed. Be watchful for your neighbors. This is just good everyday advice and even more so when there is extra activity in the area.
As always, report suspicious activity report to Non-Emergency Sheriff 713-221-6000 and emphasize Olde Oaks/WP has a deputy contract – program that number in for quick dial!
Whether or not you participated in the community sale but went through the trouble of pulling things together, less clutter is good so don’t lose ground. Consider extending your effort to keep that stuff from creeping back in. There are many nearby options to donate items. There are many venues to sell, such as eBay, Nextdoor, Facebook, consignment shops etc.
Some groups or nearby churches may be accepting items for their Fall and Holiday events. For example nearby St. Ignatius usually accepts “nice” items for their Fall Festival (Oct 1-2) silent auction baskets and rummage sale, so drop-offs will probably be getting accepted right after our community sale (https://ignatiusloyola.org). This is just one very nearby that comes to mind. You can check websites and dates for other organization-related opportunities and be sure to share them on Nextdoor.
Local non-profits accept useful items, some will even pick up larger items such as furniture and can provide receipts for tax deduction purposes. Some non-profits with near locations include:
