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.

Announcement: Curtis Park Village Updates and Developer’s Change requests, Wed., April 24, 7pm at Sierra 2 Center
|Curtis Park Village Update Meeting
April 24, 7:00pm
Sierra 2 Center, 2791 24th St, Sacramento, CA 95818
Representatives from Petrovich Development will be presenting their latest proposed changes to the Curtis Park Village at the next meeting of the Neighborhood Concerns Committee on April 24 at 7:00 pm at Sierra 2 Center in Room 10. The number of changes is much smaller than the last round, but the changes are more substantive.
Petrovich Development will give more details at the meeting, but the general outline is that they are proposing to move the Senior Housing and Multifamily into what is commonly known as the Flex Zone, while what is currently zoned and planned as Multifamily would be rezoned and planned as single family homes.
The end result would be that everything north of the Flex Zone would be single family homes. The Flex Zone would be Senior and Multifamily.
If you would like to see and hear the details of these proposed changes, please join us in Room 10 on April 24th. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions and offer constructive feedback. These changes are tentatively slated to go to the Planning Commission in August, so there is time for multiple rounds of feedback; no votes will be taken, or decisions made, at this meeting.

SCNA Adopts William Curtis Park – Needs Volunteers for Clean-Up Day April 6th
The Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association has officially adopted William Curtis Park through the City of Sacramento Partners in Parks program.

We need volunteers for our first clean-up day on April 6th from 9:00 am to 12:00. We will work trimming bushes, raking leaves and spreading mulch around the tennis courts and playground. On future days, we will clean-up and paint around the baseball diamond and mulch around trees in the park. Please join your neighbors to show we care about out park.
You and your family can sign up as volunteers by emailing NCC@sierra2.org. We will email you with a list of anything you may need to bring.
