Speeders and other Traffic Complaints

We occasionally get complaints form residents about speeding vehicles and other traffic complaints. When we get a complaint, we log it and pass it on the the California Highway Patrol.  We do this because they are the Law Enforcement agency tasked with traffic enforcement in our area.

One of the best way to keep them engaged and in the "loop" is to call them directly.  If you have a concern about speeding vehicles or other types of traffic violations that you see on a day to day basis, give them a call.  Below is the number that you can call- and the address of the local CHP office.  Please note- it it is something occurring right now, or a drunk driver, call 911.

Sheriff's You Are Not Alone Program


From the Sheriff's Department:
Today is National Senior Citizens Day to recognize America's seniors and the role they play in our communities.

The Sheriff's Department would like to honor its nearly 600 senior volunteers. They donated nearly 170,000 hours last year performing various duties at stations and substations.

Sheriff's Senior Volunteer Patrol members oversee a safety program called You Are Not Alone or YANA. We want our elderly and disabled residents to know they are never alone. YANA members get daily telephone calls and a weekly visit from Sheriff's Senior Volunteers year-round. If no one answers repeated calls or knocks on the door, emergency medical help may be summoned. Some stations and substations offer birthday, Easter, and holiday season visits with gift baskets.

For more information on the program or how you can volunteer, visitwww.sdsheriff.net/volunteers.

Parking!

Parking in the Village can be a challenge sometimes....  Over the years we have seen the businesses loose sight of the "mantra".  If you are a business owner or manager, you should be encouraging your employees from parking in the middle of the Village.  They certainly should not be parking in any of the timed spots....  Due to increased complaints about the lack of turnover, CHP Officers are focusing more on parking enforcement.
This usually gets everyone's attention.  But nobody likes a $62 ticket.... so please cooperate and park away form the green zones... be a good neighbor... In the long run abusing the time limits hurts everyone.

4th of July Parade

Our Annual 4th of July Parade is tomorrow.  The parade starts at the RSF School parking lot at La Granada and Avenida De Acacias and goes through the village to end where it starts.   Form up for the parade starts at 12- 12:30.   The parade starts at 1:00 pm.  There is a community BBQ immediately following in the south village park. To make the form  up easier, please keep this in mind:

1. Follow the marshals instructions for form up- they will be in red shirts. Cars go against the curb- don't take up the parking spaces! Make two or three lines if needed.  Do not block El Fuego.
2. Kids have to wear Helmets if they are on bicycles (good idea for skateboards too)
3.  Please, no candy in cars, floats. Throwing candy causes small kids to run into the moving vehicles.
4. Tell your children to stay in formation.  It is dangerous if they run ahead or through the parade.
5.  Antique cars overheat.  If the car has radiator or cooling issues, it may be best not to drive it. 
6. Horses are last.  Only well trained parade horses should participate.  The route is noisy with loud speakers, sirens and lots of people.  If the horses cannot be controlled safely we will ask them to move out of the parade.
7. Have Fun!

Take Me Home Program

The “Take Me Home” Program is a regional photo-based information system hosted by the Sheriff’s Department accessible by all Law Enforcement in San Diego. It is designed to assist Law Enforcement (Police and Sheriff) during contacts with members of the community who have disabilities such as, but not limited to Autism, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Down syndrome, deafness or any other Developmental Disabilities.
The program promotes communication and gives Law Enforcement access to critical information about the individual enrolled. The Take Me Home Program can provide Law Enforcement with emergency contact information, detailed physical descriptions, and photograph of the individual, known routines, favorite attractions, or special needs of the individual. This information can assist Law Enforcement in communicating with, locating a residence for, or handling an emergency involving an individual with special needs. This program has photo recognition technology attached to it. If an individual is located and cannot communicate, a photograph of the individual can be taken in the field, sent electronically and checked against those in Take Me Home Program for similar or match.
How do I enter the program?
The easiest way to enter is by clicking the REGISTER ONLINE NOW button above. This allows you to register for the program and submit a photo electronically from a desktop computer, iPad, iPhone or Android device.
