Take Our Engage in Oakley Survey on The Planning Commission

The City Council is currently considering whether to re-establish the Planning Commission as a separate body or keeping the responsibilities of the Planning Commission as they are currently set up, which includes a small group of residents who serve as Planning Advisors. 

We have developed a survey that will measure residents’ satisfaction with the current set up and also gauge the level of interest that our residents may have in serving on a Planning Commission and/or as Citizen Planning Advisors.

We want your input! Visit our Engage in Oakley platform at and complete a brief survey before March 8th.  Stay in touch with our social media for updates

Holiday Art Contest

It has been a long-standing tradition in law enforcement agencies to send holiday cards to one another. This year, the Oakley Police Department welcomes the children in our community to help them spread holiday cheer by designing the holiday card that will be sent to other law agencies!

The contest is open to all children grade Kindergarten through 6th who live in Oakley or attend school in Oakley. One winner will be selected in each age group (K-3 and 4-6) by the OPD officers to be the design for the Oakley Police Department’s 2020 holiday cards. The winners will also get a set of cards to send to family and friends, as well as a $25 gift card. Winning designs will also be on display at one of the marquees!

Ideas: Oakley PD celebrating the holidays, winter wonderlands, family joy, be creative!
