Member Comments:

  • The speeding along Kimmick was discussed along with getting a four way stop at Kimmick and Urraca.
    Looking at possibly getting a four way stop at Kimmick and Camino De Pas as this area has a blind spot for traffic. Another member wanted the bushes at Paseo Del Norte and Kimmick trimmed as they can’t see to get onto Paseo Del Norte. The large cracks in the streets was discussed. Calling 311 should get the problems corrected but it will take numerous calls before the city will act.
  • Members are concerned about the kids shooting pellet guns at the wildlife. Some homeowners have had shots fired at the pigeons on their homes. The city will only act if there are witnesses or video. Another member knows which house the kids live at so a few members are going to go talk with the parents and share their concerns.
  • If any one has wildlife that needs rescuing or lost pets contact Angela via Facebook and she will help you.


The meeting was adjourned at 11:35 P.M.

  • President, Jeff Pointer
  • Vice President, Jim Grage
  • Secretary, Cheryl Hunt
