Los Paseos Neighborhood Update – July 16th, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

Would like to give you an update on projects and issues in our neighborhood.

Shade structure at Los Paseos Park – Shade over the playground area is under construction and should be completed by September. Since the playground has been closed it has been easier to get this project done. This is the last project funded by the District 2 Participatory Budget Process. See D2 Participatory Budget Process winners

Doggie Bag Dispensers in Los Paseos Park. LPNA now supplies doggy bags for the dispensers for pet waste pickup. In the event you mistakenly leave your home without doggy bags, please make use of these to help maintain the cleanliness of our park area. Due to City budget cuts, PRNS no longer stocks the dispensers. It is the pet owner’s responsibility to pick up after their pets and properly dispose in a waste can. Leaving bags of waste for PRNS to pick-up is unhelpful and poses a health risk if others stumble upon it.

Los Paseos Park Grass Watering. PRNS has informed us they will reduce the watering of grass areas due to budget Los Paseos Park Grass Watering. PRNS has informed us they will reduce the watering of grass areas due to budget help of Our City Forest. LPNA volunteers will hand water the trees if necessary.

National Night Out (NNO) has unfortunately been canceled for August 4th. LPNA members have enjoyed putting on this event to get the neighborhood together and celebrate our diversity and community. More information may follow as the pandemic and the guidelines published by the CDC and local authorities continue to evolve. We look forward to getting the community together at such events in the future.

CALMS Camera Project (update in bold)  – Phase 1 is just about completed. Many neighborhood Courts and Streets are now covered. Several recent incidents have been covered and addressed as a result.  Homes that are in front of streetlights are considered phase 2 of the project and will begin installing at these locations soon. If you are interested in getting cameras for phase 2, go to SaferSJ and click the Request for More Information link on the home page.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a volunteer organization that trains and supports the community during emergencies. Several LPNA members are part of this team. CERT Training description: Community Emergency Response Team Training
If you have interest in being trained or helping the Los Paseos community, please contact Herb Bowen

August LPNA member meeting. We are working on putting together our quarterly LPNA member meeting in August. Based on the success of our Zoom meeting in May, we will be using the same virtual format. Stay tuned for the details.

We also have been working with our neighborhood businesses to support them. In an effort to support their businesses, we partnered with some of them. They have agreed (at the current time) to give a discount to our members for service or food items. If you mention “LPNA” at the following stores, you will get a discount (cannot be combined with any other store offers or coupons).

    • Jennifer’s Cleaners (Santa Teresa/Bernal)) – Dry clean: 10% discount; Laundry: 1 shirt free if 15 shirts laundered
    • Five Star Pizza (Bernal Road only) – 10% discount

Contact LPNA if you have any questions or concerns.

Please enjoy our lovely area of the City this summer. LPNA will continue to support the neighborhood during the changing times.
