About the Oak Grove Community Council

Welcome to the official website of the Oak Grove Community Council (OGCC), often called the “Oak Grove CPO”.

The Community Council meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the Rose Villa Performing Arts Center, 13505 SE River Road, (map).  Everyone is welcome to attend. Additional meetings are also scheduled from time to time.

(Some months have five Wednesdays. Just to be clear, we meet on the 4th Wednesday, not the last Wednesday of the month.)

Social Time for the general meetings will begin at 6:45 PM and the official meeting start time will be 7:00 PM. The meeting ends at 9:00.

We enthusiastically urge you to attend the meetings and join in the dialogue.
