Our next San Carlos Area Council (SCAC) meeting will be Wednesday, July 5 at 6 p.m. at the San Carlos Branch Library at 7265 Jackson Drive. Our meetings are open to the public. We will allot more time for our elected officials’ representatives and to the San Diego Police and Fire Departments. Bring your questions and concerns.
I am pleased to inform you that I will continue as the president of SCAC and Mark Schulze will be vice president. Patty Mooney will be secretary and April Boling continues as treasurer. We are looking to add to our board, so if you are interested, we ask only two or three hours of your time a month. If you are interested, please contact me at 619-861-3071.

At the June 14 meeting, the main item on the agenda was the Grantville Trolley Station/Alvarado Creek Enhancement Study conceptual images. If you would like a copy of the conceptual images, let me know and I will email the pictures to you.
As the school year draws to a close, we need to be mindful that our youth will be out in force crossing streets, riding their bicycles, playing in the various neighborhood parks and recreation centers. Some may be on their cell phones listening to music, texting, emailing or talking — and not paying attention to where they are.
We, as adults, need to watch out for them and help keep them safe. Drive a little more slowly and a little more carefully around the parks and places that the kids will be visiting.
Summertime is fast approaching and fire season has begun. Normally, I would say our fire season starts in September and goes through October because of the winds, but this year there have already been some brush fires.
Be sure and have a safe zone of at least 100 feet clear around your house, make sure batteries on your smoke detectors have been changed each year, and that you and your family have an emergency escape plan.
See you at the Lake Murray 4th of July festivities!
