Safe Routes To School - Drop & Walk Program

Safety - Safety - Safety. It is all about the Safety of our children as walk, ride bicycles, and are dropped off by cars and buses at our schools.

We as a community need to ensure the safety of our children as we hurry to drop them off them to school in the morning and pick them in the afternoon. At several schools in West Roseville this morning drop off and afternoon pick up process has become a dangerous situation to children walking and riding bicycles. It is just a matter of time before someone gets hurt... or worse.

Reporting the times and types of odor noticed, they can backtrack through the monitoring equipment to track the sources of the odors and go from there to mitigate them in the future. Learn how in the article linked below...

Don't be a victim of thefts from your vehicle

"I am Officer Bob Abbott with the Roseville Police Department. I normally work day shift patrol in beat 6, which includes the West Park Fiddyment Farms neighborhood.

I have reviewed the recent crime statistics for the neighborhood and have noticed there have been several reported incidents of thefts from both locked and unlocked

vehicles. The purpose of this email and my goal is to lower the risk of having property stolen from our vehicles or having our vehicles broken into.

I would like to provide some tips for the neighborhood as a reminder, that can prevent some of the occurrences of this crime:"

Parks & Construction Update

  • The W-53 Park (just South of St. John's Church) has started it's construction phase. The target completion date is Spring 2014.
  • Lennar is constructing homes on both sides of Pleasant Grove - near the W-53 Park and all around the Village Center property.
  • Fiddyment Elementary School (North of Blue Oaks) is progressing very well and is on schedule to open this fall.
  • The planned park next to Fiddyment School has not yet been funded nor has any planning begun - so it is likely at least a couple of years off.
  • Signature is grading and building infrastructure for homes on the East side of Fiddyment North of Blue Oaks (near Crocker Ranch). (this is not part of SPA 3)
  • The property owner for the commercial property at Baseline Road and Fiddyment Road (part of Sierra Vista Specific Plan) has opened a permit with the city for a 736,000 sqft retail center on that corner. Expect actual construction to be a few years off.
