Correction: Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association’s Neighborhood Concerns Committee meeting, July 23, 7pm, Room 10 at Sierra 2 Center

Neighborhood Concerns Committee Meeting July 2014

The Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association’s Neighborhood Concerns Committee (NCC) will meet Wednesday, July 23rd at 7:00 pm at the Sierra 2 Center, 2791 24th Street
Please note: We will meet in Room 10.
Strong Mayor Proposal
There will be a Strong Mayor proposal on the November 2014 ballot. SCNA has been asked to consider holding a forum on this subject. On Wednesday we will not be discussing the proposal, just the possibility of sponsoring a debate in September or October. The event would likely follow the format of previous SCNA hosted forums.

Bicycle Pathways from Curtis Park to Downtown
We will discuss areas that could be improved for bicyclists using pathways north into town from Curtis Park.

Miscellaneous items
Ideas on a kiosk for the park.

The fence along 24th Street between Donner and 5th Ave at the Curtis Park Village property line apparently does not meet City code requirements. The City now claims the fence is too high. This affects 3 Curtis Park homes on the abandoned part of 24th. The fence was installed by Petrovich Development and approved by the City but now the 3 neighbors are being held financially responsible for this mistake.

Neighborhood Concerns Committee Meeting January 22, 2014

Election of NCC Chair/Co-chairs

We will determine who will be the 2014 Chair/Co-chairs of the Committee. This is always an exciting election and will take about 60 seconds.

Curtis Park Village

If you missed last week’s meeting with the developer and Councilperson Jay Schenirer, SCNA will be holding more meetings about the changes to the project. There will be an article in the February Viewpoint explaining the changes and announcements will be sent when the next meeting date is determined.

Palm Tree Removal at 21st Street and 2nd Avenue

At this week’s NCC meeting we will discuss our strategy to save three beautiful Canary Island Date Palm trees on 21st   Street near 2nd Avenue in front of Park Fine Art. They were posted for removal because of structural and safety problems from growing into the SMUD lines overhead. An appeal to the removal was filed by the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association and other residents of Curtis Park. The appeal was approved and will be reviewed by the Parks and Recreation Commission at a public hearing on February 6th at 7:00. The hearing will take place in the historic City Hall, 915 I Street, 2nd floor, in the Commission Hearing Room. Our position is that SMUD should move the power lines rather than cutting down the trees. We hope many of you can attend this meeting to show support for saving these wonderful palm trees.

William Curtis Park Cleanup Days 2014

Our first cleanup day of the year will be Saturday, March 8th, from 9 am to noon. We will be cleaning and planting in the garden area just north of the playground. Other projects this year will include filling in some of the holes/depressions around the park and doing a general cleanup before the Home Tour.

Noise from Hughes Stadium

We have received complaints about the very loud sound system at Hughes Stadium. NCC will do some research and see if we can convince the powers that be to turn down the volume.

Young Tree Pruning class at Sierra 2 Center, Saturday, Jan. 11, 9am-10:30am in the Garden Room

Your tree is an investment that helps save energy, produces oxygen, and improves the neighborhood in many ways. If you have a newly planted or young tree, it’s important to know how to train it.  Proper training during the first 10 years will ensure long term health for the tree.

Arborist Dan Pskowski will give a free, young shade tree pruning clinic on Saturday, January 11, 9am-10:30am in the Garden Room at Sierra 2 Center.  Pskowski, a SCNA board member and Curtis Park resident, will go over structural pruning, young tree care, and, weather permitting, give a hands-on pruning demonstration.

For more details, contact Dan Pskowski at danielpskowski@gmail.com or call 451-1033.

P13-033 Routing Packet
P13-033 Plans

The applicant is requesting to increase the number of single family homes and reduce the number of multifamily units and overall commercial square footage. Pages 10-11 of the Routing Packet include a summary of changes. Please email NCC@Sierra2.org and let us know what you think about the changes. We will send out notices if SCNA decides to hold another neighborhood-wide Curtis Park Village meeting.

 

Armed Robbery in Curtis Park
There was an armed robbery in Curtis Park in the early hours of June 13th. It happened around 12:15 am on 25th Street between Donner Way and 5th Avenue. The robber used a handgun and got away with the victim’s pants, shoes, cell phone and a small amount of money. The robbers (there were 2 other waiting in a car) were not apprehended.Here is a partial description from the Sacramento Police Department’s website:

“The victim was approached by a male Black in his late teens-early twenties who demanded the victim’s clothes. The victim complied and responding officers searched the area. “

There will be a report on this crime in the July Viewpoint. Please consider starting a Neighborhood Watch group on your block. The Neighborhood Concerns Committee can help you with information on how to get started. Email us at: NCC@sierra2.org.

Recycling Center at Mercado Loco
We have learned that the CVS corporation has no intention to keep a recycling center there if their project gets approved. There have been complaints lately about the steady stream of people carrying bags and pushing overloaded shopping carts to the current recycling center at the Mercado Loco. That center will go away when the CVS store is built. All of the cans and bottles will still be stolen out of our blue bins, but the migration of thieves will head a different direction.

William Curtis Park Cleanup Days
Thanks again to everyone who has participated in our William Curtis Park cleanup days. Our next park cleanup day will be Saturday, August 10th from 9-12. We hope to see you there.
