Temporary Drone Ordinance

At its May 2, 2016 Regular Meeting, Oakmont Borough Council will consider adoption of a Temporary Drone Ordinance that limits the use of drones during the U.S. Open Event in June 2016. Click on the hyperlinked text to view a copy of the Ordinance.


The Iowa Interstate Railroad will be bringing two historic railroad cars to town during the US Open, from June 14th through 19th. The “Hawkeye” is a classic business car built in 1928. Another car, “The Abraham Lincoln,” is a dining car that will accompany. The cars will be parked directly in front of the Pavilion on Allegheny Avenue. Unfortunately, spectators will not be permitted inside the cars. There will also be reserved parking spaces along Allegheny Avenue and Allegheny River Boulevard for those with disabilities.


Oakmont Water Quality

For those of you who may have concerns about lead in our water system, here's what the people who purify our water for drinking, the Oakmont Water Authority, has to say:

The Water Authority on Allegheny Avenue purifies our drinking water. The Borough’s Wastewater Treatment Plant at the bottom of Ann Street purifies the water that goes back into the river. For residents interested in a more detailed understanding of our Water Plant, the OWA has provided the Borough with a very thorough explanation of how our water is purified, a schematic drawing of the Water Purification Plant at the end of Allegheny Avenue, and their 2015 Water Quality Report including Test Results. If you would like copies, please contact the Borough Office (#412.828.3232 or mdimatteo@oakmontborough.com).


Proposed Kayak Launch in Oakmont

Borough Council is considering a proposal from Friends of the Riverfront and the Oakmont Recreation Board to develop a kayak launch on the Borough-owned property at 1045 Allegheny Avenue. Environmental Planning and Design recently prepared a Kayak Launch Feasibility Study on various sites in the community. The site at 1045 Allegheny Avenue is a brownfield that was previously remediated under the supervision of Pennsylvania DEP. To view a June 2014 report on the clean-up of the site, click here.

FIOS IN OAKMONT

Oakmont residents should be advised that the Borough does not yet have a contract with Verizon to provide FIOS in our town. We have been told repeatedly by Verizon officials that "when they're ready" they will send us a contract to sign for this service. The Borough of Oakmont is not responsible for our residents not being able to obtain FIOS from Verizon. The Borough of Oakmont has informed Verizon to Cease and Desist from claims that the Borough of Oakmont is preventing them from providing FIOS to its residents.

Oakmont...small town charm, big city choices!

In 1889 Oakmont was incorporated from the second ward of the Borough of Verona with 1,600 residents, a dozen stores and four sizable industries: Allegheny Valley Railroad, Dexter Spring Company, Verona Tool Works and the Agnew Glass Company. In 2014 Oakmont proudly celebrates 125 years of incorporation as a borough.


Oakmont is a borough of 1.57 square miles of small hills and wooded areas 14 miles northeast of the city of Pittsburgh in Southwestern Pennsylvania nestled near Plum Creek and along the Allegheny River. As of the 2010 Census, the borough has a population of 6,303. Oakmont is governed by a council of 7 elected volunteer community leaders who employ a manager and work collaboratively with an elected volunteer mayor and an appointed chief of police, police officers and a volunteer fire department. more
