The original North Oaks Farm was established in 1883 and ran until 1950. At that time, the owners decided to develop the land into a private residential community with emphasis on protecting the environment during expansion. Thus, North Oaks began as a gated community, and it remains a city with private access only. In fact, no roads are owned by the city, as each homeowner’s property line extends halfway into the street.
Today, North Oaks has about 4500 residents. As no other property is owned by the city, all plowing, road maintenance, and park and trail upkeep is performed by the North Oaks Home Owners Association. The city government provides fire, police, and licensing services. Natural resources include woods, hills, vast meadows, wetlands, and lakes, with a protected 620-acre conservation space.
Although the area is primarily comprised of private residential lots, residents still have the chance to connect with their community. Advisory board opportunities include the City Council, Planning Commission, and Natural Resource Committee. Other activities and organizations include:
- Soccer club
- League of women voters
- Garden club
- Golf club
- Hospital guilds
The surrounding environment is left as is, including the woods as home to deer and coyote and bodies of water full of geese and fish. Community members do take steps to help preserve the environment, however, by helping to remove invasive species such as garlic mustard and buckthorn.
