Neighbor Crime Reporting

Posted on: January 7th, 2012 by admin 5 Comments

Acts of crime in our neighborhood can ultimately effect us all.  The prompt dissemination of information about threats to the health, safety and welfare of our neighborhood can be very helpful in preventing repeat occurrances.   It can not only alert your neighbors to take additonal precautions, but assist in the identification and apprehension of perpetrators.  In the timely sharing of  information about your personal experience with burglary, vandalism, and other unlawful events, you assist us all in keeping our neighborhood a safer place to live. The CNA Community Blog is intended to make it easier for that sharing to occur.

Trash Bins in our Midst

Posted on: January 5th, 2012 by admin 4 Comments

Over the past year, the streetscapes of our fair canyon have recently become inhabited by large green, highly ambulatory plastic vessels –  seen to venture out from their domestic lairs to await their weekly disgorgement.  There is much ongoing discussion as to how best to minimize the negative visual and vehicular impact of this new,  often times quite persistent, inhabitant of our streets.  While the green bins have arguably decreased the spread of trash day debris from the highly rupturable trash bags of old, are we needing to get a better grip on this beast or is it to remain an unavoidable visual evil?  What might be done to mitigate this eyesore?

Life in the canyon includes the wild and occassionally wooley.  In sharing your observations of such visitations, you illuminate just how truly important the canyon river environment is to its many illustrious non-human inhabitants, and what we can do, as its stewards, to maintain and interact with it in harmonious ways.
