Our Mantra

Because Overbrook matters…
For over 30 years, the Overbrook Community Association (formerly known as the Community Council of Overbrook) has met regularly to consider matters of concern to residents … matters such as safety, development planning, reopening of back lanes, replacement of trees, etc. Every resident of Overbrook is considered a member, so come to an OCA meeting, register, and help envision the future of our community.
Every voice counts …
