P1000306 P1000308 (1)

On Thursday, July 17th,  Chief Thomas Chaplan Was the guest speaker at our board meeting.  Chief brought a few of his Officers and discussed the current staffing increases as well as the philosophy of the Walnut Creek police force.

The Walnut Creek police motorcycle traffic enforcement team was eliminated due to financial cutbacks a few years ago.  This important team is being re-staffed, you can expect to see several motorcycle police officers shortly.  The increase in Officers will be obvious according to Chief Chaplain.

Here is a link to the interview Ruby Lopez did on Creek Currents

Thanks for your membership dues payment! Next Open-house!

Thanks to those who have sent in their membership dues for the year! Your support helps fund year round activities for our neighborhood.

Our next neighborhood open house meeting is scheduled for March 12th at 7:30 pm (location to be announced soon). The last neighborhood gathering featured City Manager Ken Nordhoff presenting on City finance issues was attended by over 70 residents! This time we have City Councilperson Justin Wedel.

Mr. Wedel has a different perspective on City issues than most of the other Council. It will be an interesting evening hearing his views on how to balance the City budget, manage growth, etc. After the presentation, we will have a regular Board meeting, all attendees are invited to stay and participate.

So if you have not done so already… Please send in your annual dues! In April we will host the annual neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt at RSM Park. Plans are in process for a summer barbecue and car show.

Thanks for your support!

President, Rancho San Miguel Association

Membership Drive ($20 per year) and City Budget Presentation (Shhh… There is a raffle too!)

Happy New Year RSM Neighbors! Big Announcement!

Did I say something about a raffle for an Ipad Mini?  See below…

The RSM Board has a number of exciting announcements!  First off, let me say thanks for the support in the past year. We had exciting events like the Easter Egg Hunt and local Art Show.  We forged a better relationship with Berean School, they withdrew their plans for expansion and promised to work with us in the future. Last, we convinced the City to put a fence around El Divisadero Park, clearly establishing it as a resource for the neighborhood, not a part of the school.

We have lots of plans for this year! Annual membership is only $20.

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE – January 18 2-6pm – RSM Swim Club

Please come to our membership drive meeting on January 18th from 2 to 6pm. Meet the Board! But also, come and meet the City Manager Ken Nordhoff. He and his staff are going to make a presentation about the Walnut Creek budget at 4pm. Find out about the fiscal situation in the Walnut Creek and what our City plans to do about balancing the budget.

The raffle? Oh yes! All RSM neighbors who come and either enroll or renew their memberships on the 18th are eligible for the raffle. You must be present to win, and we will draw after the budget presentation. Please come early.

What can you win? So far the prizes include:

  • 2 tickets to the Ruth Bancroft Gardens!
  • 2 tickets to Disneyland!
  • And yes… An Ipad Mini
  • and maybe some more!

Remember you must be present to win!

We have much more planned this year:

  • Quarterly Membership Meetings, featuring a different City Council member to speak on issues in Walnut Creek and answer your questions.
  • Events including the Easter Egg Hunt, Car Show, Halloween event, and more.

If you are on our neighborhood Nextdoor site, you can RSVP for the event here.  If not, we’ll see you there!

See you on the 18th!

David German

RSM President
