RADIO NET & AVERT INTRODUCTION



Given limited SJPD resources burglaries continue to be a problem in Almaden. One way to reduce the probability in our neighborhoods is by implementing Neighborhood Watch (NW) programs where neighbors can help neighbors. The Radio Net and Almaden Valley Emergency Response Team (AVERT) are capabilities that are designed to augment what you do locally. We encourage everyone to take a look.
The Radio Net enables neighbors to efficiently coordinate in a neighborhood response (suspicious car, burglary in progress). Neighbors responding to neighbors is much faster (2-5 minutes vs > 15 minutes from SJPD). Furthermore, during an earthquake we may need to assist each other. AVERT (Almaden Valley Emergency Response Team) will also be introduced to enable interested volunteers to work together to address neighborhood needs while waiting for city services.

Dealing with Rodents in California Ridge

Periodically there are issues with rodents (rats and mice) in our community.  If you are having problems with rodents in your home, do not place poison bait boxes around your home or try to remedy the problem yourself. Doing so can cause harm or death to pets, children, and other wild life. Rather, call a Pest Control company to properly remove the rodent problem. Pest Control companies place traps in safe locations and use solutions to trap and kill rodents that  are safe for pets, children, and other wildlife.

Message from the Board:
 
This is a reminder to all homeowners.  Please check your decking and siding for dry rot. Dry rotting can create potentially dangerous problems for the community.  In addition, neglected decking and siding repairs will impact our property values. These repairs are home owner responsibility. Notify the association when you've completed your siding and/or railing repairs. The association will take care of painting these repairs (only railings, siding and not decks).  The deck floor is homeowner's responsibility.

Dear Neighbors,

 

Emails and phone calls have been flooding into my office over the past few days about an NBC-11 story  that talked about a possible overnight homeless parking facility for the County-owned lot at the southeast corner of Almaden Expressway and Camden Avenue. My staff and I are busy responding to each of you. Like you, I want to see the homeless get the help they need – the City and County are committing millions of dollars to these efforts – however, I do NOT support placing any overnight parking facility in our residential neighborhoods and will fight any attempt to do so.

 

This is NOT a City of San Jose proposal, and there is a lot of misinformation out there on Nextdoor and elsewhere about the proposal, so I want to bring you all up to date with the information I have.

Wild Life

Remember we share our living space with wild life such as; mountain lions which can threaten everyone's safety, including those of our pets. This was evident by the traces of deer parts left behind after it fell prey to perhaps a mountain lion on Copper Peak.  Take precaution during your early or late day walks, be watchful of your children and bring your pets indoors at night.
