The Town of Oakland Planning & Zoning Board meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month as needed at 6:30 p.m. and may also meet for work sessions. The Board implements the comprehensive plan adopted by the Town with reasonable consideration, among other things, to the prevailing land uses, growth characteristics and the character of the respective districts. The Board encourages the most appropriate use of the land throughout the town, from time to time revising and amending the plan.

The Town of Oakland has a number of boards and committees which provide assistance to staff and the Town Commission. Most have monthly meetings and require only a few hours of a volunteer’s time. These meetings are all open to the public.

The Town is looking for up to 10 interested local residents to form a Solid Waste Advisory Committee. This committee will make recommendations to the Town Commission concerning future procurement of solid waste services. Apply today at https://oaklandfl.gov/978/Solid-Waste-Advisory-Committee.
