Where is it? Bounded by Sweeten Creek Road, Thompson Street and I-240.
Details: Oakley is a very large neighborhood with more than 2,000 homes. It is a diverse community and have many features outside of residences. We have a local library, Oakley Elementary, a fire station, Asheville’s only police substation, a park, Ray Kisiah baseball complex, Roots and Wings Art School, several churches and other commercial businesses. The Oakley Watch/Association is a small but dedicated group. Participants are a little dismayed that the group is so small, but we have made our mark. We have members who host neighborhood clean-ups and are very involved in the noise ordinance revision. We spend many hours keeping our group up and running, getting information out on Facebook and Nextdoor in the hopes that our group will grow.
Motto: Making Oakley a better, safer place to live and grow.
