The RPNA Board met via Zoom on 4/15. Key takeaways are as follows:
- SacPD Lt. Aaron Wallace joined the meeting. He has been the Lt. for our area since last summer and lived in RP when he was attending Sac State. He discussed a recent attempted kidnapping (reported on RP Facebook Group) perpetrated by a woman from out of the area experiencing a mental episode. He is working with head of Neighborhood Patrol Justin Wisely on a variety of issues, including increasing patrols targeting speeding and running stop signs. Anyone interested in sharing concerns or joining Neighborhood Patrol can contact Justin at email@example.com.
- Representatives from Buffalo Chips Running Club joined the meeting. They will not hold their 4th of July race but will likely hold their Susan B. Anthony (8/14) and Buffalo Stampede (9/12) runs. They are considering Tuesday night training runs in RP from 6-7pm and will work with the neighborhood to ensure they do not create a street parking challenge in any specific location. More information will be printed in next RP Review.
- The City is still looking at CalExpo as a potential location for a homeless triage center.
- The Glenn Hall pool will be open this summer with a limited schedule, TBD.
- CalExpo will not be doing a fireworks display this year due to ongoing prohibition on large gatherings.
- As stated in the April RP Review, RPNA is still looking for ideas for 4th of July Festivities that avoid large gatherings (in addition to car parade and chalk art competition). Please send any ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Screen on the Green will likely be held the first weekend in August at Glenn Hall.
Our next board meeting is 5/20 at 730pm via Zoom. All residents are welcome to join, and we will distribute an agenda in advance with instructions for how to join.
