You are cordially invited to attend our annual Rosemary Gardens Neighborhood Association (RGNA) meeting this upcoming Thursday, February 25 at 7:00PM to 8:30PM at the Bachrodt Elementary School Library.
This year, Supervisor Dave Cortese, President of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors will join us. He will address issues of concern to RGNA members and residents. I'd like to thank his office for helpfully coordinating the attendance of County and City Department representatives including:
· Ray Bramson, Homeless Response Team Manager for the City of San Jose Housing Department
· Robert Dolci, Homeless and Housing Concerns Coordinator for the County’s Office of Supportive Housing
· Captain David Lera, Sheriff’s Office
· Captain David Tindall, Central Division Commander for the San Jose Policy Department (or representative)
They will address concerns relating to homeless encampments along the 880 and 87 sound walls, mail theft, prostitution and drug dealing along First Street and East Gish Road. This is a great opportunity for you to gather information and share your concerns and how they may help resolve them.
Our Councilmember and neighbor Raul Peralez will also be joining us and providing an update from the city.
Following presentations and Q&As from our guests we will hold our Association’s Board elections and official board business.
As 2015 draws to a close it is time to start planning for 2016. As always, elections will be held at our annual RGNA meeting in February. It is expected that our current leadership group will be transitioning out to pursue other interests, leaving all 4 positions available. Descriptions of the officer positions are listed below. If you have interest in running for any of the open officer positions, we would love to hear from you so that we may attempt to coordinate schedules where possible. The meeting will be held the week of February 27th.
Order forms for Holiday Yard Trees will be arriving on doorsteps soon. Keep an eye out! Each tree is $20. Orders must be received by November 25th. Ordered trees will be available for pickup on December 5th and 6th.
The City of San Jose Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services is holding a meeting on Thursday November 19th at 7:00PM in the First and Rosemary Family Apartments, Community Room to discuss the plans for a new park at the Northeast corner of Kerley & Rosemary.
The City of San Jose has acquired the vacant parcel at the northeast corner of Kerley Drive and East Rosemary Street for development as a future neighborhood park. The City is now engaging the community in an attempt to help identify possible features for this small neighborhood park. San Jose neighborhood parks typically include play equipment, pathways, landscaping, turf, picnic facilities, a bike rack, park benches, trash receptacles, park signage and security night lighting. The below questionnaire that can be filled out and returned at the meeting or to Dave Mitchell, PRNS, 200 East Santa Clara Street, 9th Floor, San Jose, California 95113 by December 1, 2015.
The annual spring yard sale is happening next Saturday April 11th! Don't forget to have some small bills to make change for your customers. If you have any shopping bags that you haven't recycled yet you can offer them to customers that are having a hard time gathering up all the things they've bought to make it easier for them to get their items home.
See you there!
Just a reminder that the annual is this Wednesday night from 6PM to 8PM. Thanks to all the neighborhood volunteers that handed out flyers last week!
