    Contractual CC&Rs define community 'feel 'of Big Park

    As all who live here implicitly know, Big Park is a true community. While not being an incorporated area establishing its own planning, zoning and other policies, the large majority of Big Park’s residents and businesses function from properties covered by a “contract” that defines how the property will be used.

    How the Village came to be (part I)

    Here’s where you’ll learn about the early days of the Village of Oak Creek/Big Park (why the two names?) and all about the reconstruction of SR-179 (our Main Street) and much more. Each month we’re featuring a different Village story from Loretta Benore’s wonderful 2016 book, “History, Hilarity and Heartbreak.” These stories were part of Loretta’s popular column in The Villager called “Days of Yore” that ran in the early 2000’s. The stories have been updated, expanded & compiled for this book and The Villager will be exclusively excerpting some of them.
