The name "Laurel Oaks" was derived by combining portions of the names of the 2 elementary schools serving our neighborhood, namely Laurel Mountain and North Oaks (as Caraway Elementary was named at the time of LONA's founding). View LONA's listing in the City of Austin's directory of neighborhood associations.
The Laurel Oaks Neighborhood Association is one of a number of smaller neighborhood associations that grew out of the predecessor North Oaks Neighborhood Association (NONA). We are a 100% volunteer organization. As an informal association, we have no regulatory authority and collect no dues.
The LONA area is bounded by Jollyville Road, Oak Knoll Drive, Lost Horizon Drive, Rain Creek Parkway, Fireoak Drive, Texas Plume Road, and Spicewood Springs Road.
LONA encompasses all or part of the following subdivisions: Balcones Oaks, Barrington Oaks, High Sierra Oaks, Oak Forest, Oak Knoll Estates, Shadow Oaks, Westhill Estates, Windridge
If you live within (or near) the shaded map, we are happy to consider you to be a member of the Laurel Oaks Neighborhood Association.
LONA Google Group Emails
We created the Google group because Yahoo discontinued all Yahoo groups. The Google group has well over 200 members already.
To post, you'll have to use email@example.com instead of the previous Yahoo! group's email address.
1. Here's the Join link. It will work if you have a Google account: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/laurel_oaks_na/join
2. If you don't have a Google account, you will need one to:
Create and manage a group
Join a group
Post to a group
Delete a post
Read a restricted group's posts
To use these features with Google Groups, here's how to create a Google Account without changing your email address.
You can also link a non-Gmail email address to an existing Google Account.
Learn how to sign in to your Google Account with another email address.
3. If you don't want a Google account, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and an admin will try to add you manually.
By popular demand, here's how to request daily digests:
1. Go to groups.google.com
2. Click on 'My Groups'. You'll see 'laurel_oaks_na' displayed.
3. The third item (or column) on that line lets you select how often you'd like to receive messages from the group. 'Send daily summaries' is one of the options. (Admin's note: the "daily summaries" are the "abridged" setting. The digest setting is a different option.)
