WFFNA General Meeting Summary

Over 60 residents attended the March 22nd meeting at Junction Elementary. WFFNA President Loren Cook opened the meeting by thanking the Westpark Associates, Signature Properties, and Granite Bay Developers who worked with Roseville City officials to provide the very nice Newsletter that was recently mailed throughout the neighborhood. Sue Hallahan-Cook introduced Officer Josh Wheeler, our newly assigned ‘neighborhood officer’, and directed those interested in the Neighborhood Watch program to sign-up. She then announced upcoming WFFNA events:

Ted Daus, chairman of the Bylaws Committee then proceeded to describe the proposed changes to the Bylaws and called for discussion. Several objections were raised before unrelated comments interrupted the proceedings. Finally a vote was called for and the Bylaws amendments failed a 2/3 passage by one vote. The Bylaws will return to committee for further consideration of the points raised and re-presented at a new date. If you did not get a chance to send your comments prior to this vote, please do so to ByLaws@wffna.org before April 7th so the committee may include your comments in their further considerations.

Loren Cook then introduced the night’s guest speakers:

City Manager Ray Kerridge
discussed keeping Roseville a great city to raise a family; keeping on top of ‘derelict’ commercial and private properties, and how vital the neighborhoods were to the whole well-being of the City and vice-versa. Accompanying him and addressing various questions were Asst. City Manager Rob Jensen, Admin. Services Dir. Russ Branson, Asst. Parks Dir. Jeff Dubchansky, and Mike Isom and Jamie Carlson of the City Manager’s Office.


Police Chief Daniel Hahn
expressed his warm welcome as the new Police Chief of Roseville, and added his shared thoughts with Mr. Kerridge that the neighborhoods are the backbone of the City. He also coordinated with Loren to be invited back for a more in-depth visit to discuss with neighborhood association members about what our major concerns are and how the police and neighborhoods can communicate more effectively between each other.


Asst. Fire Chief Jeff Carman
displayed the plans for our new Fire Station 9 which is starting construction soon on Hayden Parkway. He indicated that at least one paramedic was assigned with each truck, and that Station 9 would house a big “ladder truck” containing many sources of emergency and rescue equipment (at some time in the future). Current drawings of the proposed station (not yet final) have been attached below.
