Regular attendees of the Board meetings and some Board members have requested a community book sharing system. You might have noticed little wooden houses in other neighborhoods where neighbors share books (leave a book, take a book). The Board of Directors and several home owners are investigating solutions for our community. More later...
Welcome to the Hot Topics page
The 2015 Board of Directors has been finalized. Steve Bibb and Courtney Galgani were elected to the Board of Directors for the next two years. Cindy resigned from the Board at the end of the January meeting. Flora was chosen by the Board to fill in the remainder of Cindy's term during the February meeting. There you go.
Please be sure to thank Cindy for all her hard work serving on the Board of Directors these past years. She was such a valuable asset to our community and the Board of Directors, especially dealing with community finances and landscape improvement. We are going to miss her and her talents!
There will be no Board Meeting in December, 2014.

Mountain Lion sightings near Williams Elementary
Chief of Staff, District 10 Shane Patrick Connolly from San Jose City Council
Councilmember Khamis has received reports from a number of neighbors about the mountain lion spotted near Williams Elementary. He reached out to the State Department of Fish and Wildlife, County Vector Control, and the City’s Animal Care and Services Division. If the mountain lion is acting in an aggressive manner or is an immediate threat to you or other individuals, please call 9-1-1. Typically, unless the animal is sick or injured, it would not pose a threat to the human population. Experts advise that if you make yourself look bigger by raising your arms in the air and make loud noises, the animal will typically run away.

From Johnny Khamis, District 10 Council member
Happy July! We are just a few short days away from celebrating our Nation’s Independence! Please join me this Fourth of July as we celebrate the birth of our nation with an afternoon and evening festival, culminating with a fireworks show, at Almaden Lake Park. Over the last several years, there has been a marked increase in the use of illegal fireworks. The police and fire departments have developed a comprehensive strategy that they will employ this year to educate the public and combat this explosion in illegal firework use. For more information on their efforts visit the SJFD website.
