March e-news update from DCAC’s President

[written by Jay Wilson, President of Del Cerro Action Council

Ed Zwibel, our Police Community Relations Officer, sends this information. “Please remember to log on at Crimemapping.com and Nixle for email alerts and statistics specific to your neck of the neighborhood”.

Officer Zwibel works very hard to keep us informed about criminal activity and how to be pro-active to help protect our community. The sites are interesting, so take some time, and learn what is happening in your neighborhood.

Smart phone applications continue to become part of our daily lives. Amy Schmitz Weiss, an Assistant Professor at SDSU, will be conducting focus groups this spring with residents from the communities adjacent to SDSU. Del Cerro is the community she has selected north of I-8. The subject of the focus groups will be on the topic of mobile applications on smartphones and their uses in daily life for news and entertainment. You must own a mobile device (smartphone is required) in order to participate. The focus groups will last two hours. I will let you know when the next focus group will take place.

The annual Hearst Elementary Foundation Auction & Dinner is set for March 24. If you have not been to one of these events you are missing an incredible evening. It is an amazing event, and it raises a lot of money benefiting the students of Hearst. For questions or for more information, please feel free to contact Jennifer Abrams at hearstfoundation@gmail.com.

We have a number of children living in Del Cerro who attend Green Elementary in San Carlos. On March 9, the Green Elementary Foundation is holding the first-ever Taste of San Carlos event. It will take place at the Mission Trails Golf Course located at 7380 Golfcrest Place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Come to sample the latest fare from local restaurants and caterers, as well as neighbors looking to enjoy an evening mingling with friends will enjoy this event. For more information, go to their website: http://tasteofsancarlos.com/

The Navajo Community Planners, Inc. now has its own website. Keep up-to-date on what is happening in the Navajo Area relating to land use issues. The new site is http://navajoplanners.org. It will provide you with agendas, meeting minutes and updated information on land use issues.

Don’t forget to also check in on the Del Cerro Action Council website at http://delcerroactioncouncil.org. Your comments are welcome there and the DCAC board of directors would like to hear from you. I want to personally thank webmaster George Janczyn for establishing, and helping maintain both the new Navajo Community Planners, Inc. and the Del Cerro Action Council websites.

If you would like to receive e-news updates on Del Cerro and our surrounding communities, please email me at jwilson2@cox.net. Your email address will remain confidential. Also tell your Del Cerro friends and neighbors to email me so they may also receive the e-news updates.

In June, we will all be voting in the primary to select the final candidates for the primary in November. Elected officials from all levels of government are running. Remember, the City Council District 7 will change dramatically when the new City Council is seated in December. Remember, the new District 7 includes the entire Navajo Community, all of Tierrasanta, and Mission Valley, and almost all of Serra Mesa and Linda Vista.

Help maintain our community. If you see a city street related concern, such as a burned out street or traffic signal light or pothole, take the time to report it. Go on-line at http://apps.sandiego.gov/streetdiv/ or call 619.527.7500.
