Last Night's Neighborhood Meeting

We had a nice turnout for our first 2007 Meadows neighborhood meeting that is now the first Tuesday of every month, 7:00 p.m., at 4416 El Prieto Rd.

Items of discussion:

  • The sighting of the mountain lions in the backyard of a Canyon Crest home. (See previous post.)
  • A discussion of the break-ins in the neighborhood in November and December. The meeting attendees felt it might be someone in or very familiar with our neighborhood. Everyone is encouraged to keep a close watch on any suspicious activity and to not hesitate calling the sheriffs.
  • A neighbor on Aralia stated that his house had been "egged" as recently as last month.
  • A reminder that upkeep of the Meadows sign costs money. (Please see previous post.)
  • We'll discontinue advertising in The Meadows Newsletter as it is not generating any funds to help defray costs of the Meadows sign garden. All are encouraged to donate funds through Linda.
  • Ann Dougherty, a Meadows neighbor on lower Canyon Crest and Boardmember for San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity, told everyone about the Habitat for Humanity used building materials store located at 770 N. Fair Oaks. It's a great place to purchase and donate unused or used building materials. Proceeds from the store help fund local projects. It's open Tuesday through Saturday from 9-5.
  • An update on The Meadows Firesafe Council's progress in assessing trees and vegetation at each home in The Meadows. We've assessed approximately 70 so far.
  • J. Lopex, from L.A. County Fire Department, talked about the efforts that are being made with CA FairPlan Insurance. Please see separate post for more information.
  • Jane, from Save the Altadena Trails, told the group about the upcoming walk to Brown Mountain. Please see separate post.

Next meeting is Tuesday, February 6 at 7:00 p.m. See you there.
