PLEASE REMOVE ALL GARAGE SALE SIGNS
In an effort to keep our community clean, Oak Park Now wants to encourage all residents that host garage sales to remove the signs they distribute throughout the community upon completion of the sale. On any given weekend, garage sale signs are left lingering across the community without proper removal. Please also keep in mind that garage sale signs are not permitted in public roadway medians. Thank you for helping to keep our community looking pristine.
Oak Park News and Events...NOW!
OakParkNow.com is the brainchild and labor of love for 13 year Oak Park resident Derek Ross, who serves as its volunteer editor and publisher.
Derek has been a resident of the Conejo Valley for over 20 years, is married to his wife Lauren, and the proud father of daughters Molli (7) and Elli (6).
Derek has volunteered for most of his life, having served most recently on the Oak Park Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), the Thousand Oaks Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), and the Red Cross Disaster Assistance Team (DAT).
In 2008, Derek was overwhelmingly elected by the community of Oak Park to serve a four year term on the Municipal Advisory Council. He served as chairman of this council in 2011.
Additionally, during his term on the Municipal Advisory Council, Derek was elected to a two year term on the Oak Park Recreation and Park District Committe which works hand and hand with the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District (RSRPD) which owns and maintains most of the open space in Oak Park. Since then, Derek has been re-elected twice and currently serves as the committee Vice- Chairman.
Derek holds a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies, and his professional career is in risk management, where he serves as President/COO, of Kulchin Ross Insurance Services, located in Tarzana.
In an effort to keep the community informed, Derek voluntarily created Oak Park Now, which he updates daily. Among the unique features of Oak Park Now are the many video segments highlighting people and services in the community. Derek personally produces these, and interviews others who are involved in keeping Oak Park the great community that it is.
In 2014, Derek was elected as a governing board member on the Oak Park Unified School District where he currently serves as its clerk. For more information, check out www.derekscottross.com.
Lastly, in 2016 Derek was honored with the prestigious Golden Acorn Award presented by the Community Foundation for Oak Park. This award was established to honor residents for their ongoing volunteer service to the community.
Derek can be reached at email@example.com. He welcomes your comments and suggestions.

SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL
The Ventura County Department of Transportation has conducted a study and provided Oak Park Now with maps of all campuses and the safest routes for students to walk to and from school. We encourage students to walk to school to safely. Elementary children should never walk without an adult and secondary students should never walk alone. Walking to school provides so many benefits to health, for the environment, and for our traffic situation.
