ABOUT THE OAK HILLS ORACLE The Oak Hills Oracle is a monthly publication serving the Oak Hills neighborhood, located near Beaverton, Oregon, in the area north of the Sunset Highway. The Oak Hills neighborhood was honored in 2013 to be named a nationally recognized Historic District. The neighborhood is bounded by Cornell Road on the south, West Union Road on the north, Bethany Boulevard on the west and NW 143rd on the east. Established in 1973, The Oak Hills Oracle is a privately-owned, independent publication that has been bringing local and neighborhood news and information to the well-established Oak Hills neighborhood for more than 40 years. The Oak Hills Oracle reports on the neighborhood's governing board, the Oak Hills Homeowners' Association (OHHA) and other offical OHHA business, but is independent and not affiliated with the board and does not necessarily represent the views of the board or its members.
The Oak Hills Oracle publishes 12 issues each year and is hand-delivered to all 650+ homes in the Oak Hills neighborhood on or before the 1st of each month.
*Holiday Party Clarification: The information in the Oracle about the movie night (replacing a larger holiday party) on Dec. 19 is correct. There will not be a holiday party held on December 13 as was stated in the December issue of the Oak Hills Neighborhood Association News.
*TownHouse Fire Update: The Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue investigator has determined that the cause of the fire on November 16 was related to smoking materials. Damage to the six town homes involved is estimated at $1,000,000. Donations to the Oak Hills Fire Relief Fund to support the six families who lost their homes can be made at any Unitus Credit Union branch. The two nearest branches are at Tanasbourne, 1855 NW 188th Street, and at Peterkort, 11200 SW Barnes Road.
