President’s Memo for July 2012
by Harris Rogers
We Live in Good Fortune 
I have recently had the opportunity to sit in on meetings inother San Mateo County communities, and it makes me realize just how blessed we are to live (or work) in the Shores. Weshould constantly give thanks for our good fortune. There areseveral things that make the Shores a unique community and con-tribute to our extraordinary good fortune.We enjoy the benefits of:*a protected “island”, with limited access and distinctboundaries defining “our community”, bounded by water onthree sides and Hwy.101 on the fourth.*a diverse population, with our immigrant population generallycoming from “high-trust” societies where there is generalrespect for the law and the norms of social life.*the ability to communicate with almost all members of ourcommunity. The PILOT goes to every residence and mostbusinesses, and you pass our roadway signboards to get toevery home in the Shores. This ability to communicate is aHUGE benefit to the Shores community.*a population that is almost universally English-speaking, evenif as a second language, which also makes communicationwithin the community much easier.*good infrastructure, an exceptional branch library, andtwo great elementary schools with extraordinary principalsand teachers.*an extremely “high interest” population that pays closeattention to community issues large and small.We DO NOT have:*problems with gangs or violence in the community.*problems with drugs and dealers on our streets or in ourneighborhoods.*problems with run-down & “distressed” properties that canbe attractors for crime and other problems. (All properties inthe Shores are covered by CC&Rs which serve to keep bothbusiness and residential properties in good repair.)
Still Two More Summer Concerts! 
In response to your many comments and suggestions, we madesome big changes in our summer Sounds of the Shores Concertsin Marlin Park this year.All our 2012 concerts are on SUNDAY afternoons!Second,we’ve moved the time up an hour to 5-7pm to (hopefully) keepus in the warmer part of the afternoon before the sun starts togo down and the evening starts to cool off. We expected thesechanges to allow more people to attend and in a more enjoyable(i.e., “warmer”) time of the day.If you missed the first, there are still two more concerts onJuly 22 and August 12. Check the web for more details.If you are on our email list we’ll let you know what’shappening about a week before each concert. If you want to be onour list, go to our web site at RSCA.org and under the “Feedback”tab, just click on the yellow “Join our email list” button.
Farmers Market in the Shores… YIPEE! 
After months of sometimes tedious work on the details, wefinally have a Farmers Market in the Shores. In case you’vemissed it, the market is located in the parking lot of the RWSLibrary at the corner of Marine & Bridge Parkways and is openfrom 11am to 6pm each Friday.Getting this market has taken a lot of coordination andcooperation from the City, the Library, the nearby HOAs andbusinesses that might have been impacted, and many, manyothers who worked hard to make sure that this market will bea success in the Shores.
Let Our Wildlife Be Wild 
We are fortunate to live near wetlands and open green areasand are consequently surrounded by all forms of wildlife.But we need to remember that this is not a petting zoo.As beautiful as some our birds might be, or as “domesticated”as some of our squirrels, waterfowl, and other small wildlifemight appear, you need to respect their space and enjoy themfrom a distance.Trying to touch or feed them, especially involving youngchildren, may lead to bites or aggressive responses. It is alsoimportant to remind residents and our guests that feeding,harming, or removing any of our wildlife is prohibited by law.Please respect all our wildlife…let them be wild and enjoythem from a distance.
School Funding & “Basic Aid” ? 
he Shores is located in two separate school districts. Forour elementary and middle school children, we are part of theBelmont-Redwood Shores School District (BRSSD). For ourhigh school students we are part of the Sequoia Union HighSchool District. Both of these are “Basic Aid” school districts.We keep hearing this term about funding for our schools, butwhat exactly is “basic” about a “Basic Aid” district?It means that these districts are limited to the income fromproperty & parcel taxes without regard to the number of students in the district.Good schools are a blessing to any community, and they arean “attractor” to families with children. Families are highlymotivated to move to districts with good schools. So thenumber of students the district serves can increase dramatical-ly with no increase in the funds available for our schools.And that means fewer dollars per student.
