Annual Pancake Breakfast this Saturday
Please join your neighbors this Saturday, October 26, 9:30-11:30am in the Coloma Center auditorium for the annual pancake breakfast. In addition to pancakes, the Sacramento Police Department captain now assigned to our neighborhood will stop by along with our council member Eric Guerra. There will also be information tables about neighborhood issues including traffic, parking, trees and other. Feel free to wear your Halloween costume!
U.C. Davis Medical Center (UCDMC) Advisory Committee and Open House on Nov. 18
On Monday, October 30, the Partnership Advisory Council for UC Davis development will meet. The ENA board has two representatives on the Advisory Committee. Unfortunately, although the ENA has requested that these meetings be open to the public, they are still closed.
However, on Monday, Nov. 18, 5:30-7:30pm, at the Cancer Center Auditorium, 2279 45th St. the UCDMC will hold an open house about future development and changes at the Med Center, including Aggie Square.
Next ENA meeting December 9
There will not be a November ENA meeting, neighbors are encouraged to attend the UCDMC open house, see above.
On Monday, December 9, the ENA will hold a member meeting with a focus on neighborhood safety and reducing crime during the holidays. The meeting will be at the Masonic Hall, 4647 U St. We again thank the Masonic Hall for generously letting us use their facility.
Reminder: Drive Safely, Park Legally
Elmhurst will be seeing more Drive Safely signs, reminding all of us to drive slowly through our neighborhood, fully stop at all stop signs and keep an eye out for children, bicycles, pedestrians and pets in the street.
Part of neighborhood safety is making sure that people can park next to their residences. This is jeopardized when people exceed the allowable time limits in restricted parking areas or misuse parking permits. Unfortunately, it appears that some vehicles have acquired visitor permits and are using them in violation of the rules. Parking violations can be texted or called into 311; some neighbors have also left polite notes on cars asking for respect of the time limits and rules.
Lost a pet? Tell your neighbors!
The recent reunification of Dudley the cat with his family is a testament to the persistence and helpfulness of neighbors who were informed by hand delivered and posted flyers. Dudley’s information was also put on NextDoor, at local shelters, local pet stores and veterinarians.
Dudley was missing for 5 weeks and neighbors continued to look for him, until one finally spotted him and he was brought home safe and sound.
