RSCA Annual Levee Cleanup
Everyone showed up for breakfast, took their pick up tools and trash bags to collect over 3 tons of garbage from the 7 miles of levees sur-rounding the Shores. The event headquartered at Mariner’s Park.For over 15 years near the end of each August, The Redwood ShoresCommunity Association has sponsored the Annual Levee Cleanup.Volunteers were assembled into teams and assigned cleanup areas. Kids and par-ents, adults and seniors were all there. It was a great day for Redwood City resi-dents (and their friends) to enjoy a beautiful summer morning while experiencing avariety of birds and other wildlife.Everyone returned to a barbeque lunch at 11:30 provided by San Mateo CreditUnion, and thanks to all of our wonderful volunteeers.Recology Systems Inc. provides the trash collector containers, and their assistanceis gratefully appreciated. Each year large amounts of trash are picked from theRedwood Shores Levee environment by our volunteers and removed by RecologySystems free of charge. Every piece of trash that is eliminated is important!Pete Hughes, long time RWS resident organized this valued community initiativefrom the beginning and gained the continuing support of civic, business and com-munity leaders who support this public effort with their time and resources.

President’s Memo for September 2013
by Harris Rogers
Yes, there has been an increase in property crime all along thePeninsula this summer. The Shores has also been affected, butnot nearly at the same rate as our neighboring communities.We still have the advantage of limited access to our little“island”.But way too many of the thefts in the Shores are fromUNLOCKED cars and homes with valuables left in plain sight.Even in your driveway, LOCK YOUR CAR!And please don’t leave windows open & unlocked when youleave home, even if it’s just a quick trip to the store. If youneed to leave windows cracked on warmer days, you can take pieces of wood cut to the right length and place them wherethey keep the windows from being opened any further. And…
We know our neighbors and our neighborhoods better thananyone else. You know better than anyone what looks “right”and what doesn’t on your street. So…
Don’t ignore things that don’t look right in your neighborhood.If you see suspect behavior, call RWC PD at 369-3333, and letthem check it out. Our police force wants to stop these crimes before they occur.
Door-to-Door Solicitors?
EVERY residential area of the Shores is posted “no soliciting.”Anyone who comes to your door un-invited should have and bewearing a solicitation permit issued by the RWC PoliceDepartment. (These are extremely rare, and yes, there are certainexception for religious, charitable, and a few other non-profitorganizations.) But ALL of our neighborhoods are posted “NOSOLICITING.”Knocking door-to-door is one of the best ways to see if the homemight be empty and a good target for robbery.If you see anyone going door-to-door, CALL RWC POLICE. If those persons have a legitimate right to be here they should notmind being checked by one of our officers, but let the police makethat decision.Again, if it doesn’t look right to you, call our Police Dept. and letthem check it out. And try to provide the best description you canof the individual(s) and of any vehicle you might notice.
We continue to receive complaints from residents — both pedes-trian and motorist — about speeding and failures to stop at stopsigns and red lights in the Shores.
This includes bicycles as well as automobiles.There have been several pedestrian “near misses” – someinvolving kids – from failures to stop or yield right-of-way.School is back in session so expect increased traffic enforce-ment. Don’t “roll through” that STOP sign then complainabout the ticket.
Let’s slow down and keep it safe for everyone in the
We have two extremely important local elections on November 5th.This year we will be electing three (3) members of theRedwood City Council, and six (6) candidates have filed for those three seats, including two incumbents.The City Council is the “board of directors” of the city and setsthe overall policy direction and “tone” of city government.The Council hires the City Manager (“CEO”) and other keycity officials. The decision we make as voters on whom toelect to the Council affects Redwood Shores directly, probablymore than whom we elect to county or state offices.If you are on our email list you received notice about and mayhave attended our Candidate’s Forum on Sept.4th. This is anopportunity that RSCA sponsors each election cycle to meetthe people who chose to run for a seat on the Council. You canalso find information about other forums and opportunities tomeet our City Council candidates athttp://www.redwoodcity.org/clerks/Candidate_Forums.html.
Meet School Board Candidates Sept.23 
Equally important to the Shores, there are SEVEN (7) candi-dates for a majority – three (3) seats of five (5) – to be electedto the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District (BRSSD)Board of Trustees. BRSSD is responsible for the six elemen-tary schools and Ralston Middle School that serve the Shorescommunity and the City of Belmont.Since 2001 there has only been one contested election to theDistrict Board (only three candidates for two seats in 2007.)This year we have the largest number of candidates anyone canremember. Our community has expressed concerns about pastactions of the District, and the District faces several significantchallenges in the next few years. This election gives you thechance to help determine the future direction of the District.So that you can meet and hear from all seven candidates at onetime, RSCA and the Belmont-Redwood Shores PTA Councilof the District are co-sponsoring a forum on Monday evening,Sept.23rd. This meeting, starting at 7:00pm, is for the entireSchool District community and will be held at NesbitElementary in the school auditorium.
