RCA is Open to Renters as Well as Homeowners
Over of third of Rosemont residents are renters, living either in apartments or in single family houses. The important point is they are Rosemont residents, and as such they too have a real interest in seeing to it that our community is safe, attractive and vibrant. Therefore, renters should have a strong interest in being a member of the Rosemont Community Association to help keep our neighborhoods clean and safe, just like we all want them to be. So if you are a renter (or know someone who is) join RCA and help keep Rosemont the home community where you want to live. You can join online by clicking the link at the top of this page. Or send your name and contact information to RCA at PO Box 277194, Sacramento, CA 95827. Dues are just $20 per year, or $35 for two years.

Help Some Needy Kids Enjoy Good Recreation Programs
The Friends of Rancho Cordova Parks & Recreation is proud to announce its very first Annual Pasta Feed Dinner Fundraiser. This year it is raising funds for many things, the two most important being the fixing and reopening of the Hagen Park pool. The Friends also sponsors less fortunate children and families to be able to take advantage of a lot of programs that CRPD conducts. Through this fundraiser the Friends are hoping to be able to sponsor up to 50 families in the coming year.

Do You Face Book?
RCA is looking for a few good people to help monitor our Face Book page and assure that it is properly used. This social media site is proving to be a great communications tool and we want to make it even more useful to more people. We estimate, with several people helping, it should take no more than a few hours per month. If this sounds like something you’d like to do to help you community, send us an email at info@rosemontca.org and tell us a bit about your FB experience. And thanks for your help!

Calling All Artists
Our neighbors in Rancho Cordova will be sponsoring another art show this fall and they are inviting interested artists to submit pieces for display. It is an open show, which means all media and topics are welcome. While this is The Fall Show, work does not need to be of an autumn or seasonal theme. Let your imagination run wild! It will be open October 20 through January 9, so at least plan to come view it. For more information click HERE.

Business Plans Brewing
A key goal of RCA is to improve the business climate here in Rosemont. We have too much of our local money leaving our community to be spent elsewhere because we don’t have the desired businesses and services here.

To change that RCA has launched an outreach program intended to provide support to our local businesses. Plans are underway for a gathering of our local business owners and managers to form a support network and explore what can be done to improve our business climate here. If you are involved in a business here in Rosemont, whether in a traditional store front or at home, or even on-line – or you know of someone who has a Rosemont business – please plan on participating in this new and important program. We will be publishing more information in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have ideas or suggestions, let us know at info@rosemontca.org.

RHS Homecoming Parade Set for October 10
Enjoy our local high school’s homecoming parade, festivities and games on Friday afternoon and evening, October 10. Click HERE for the details. If you have an organization here in Rosemont you may even want to participate.

Welcome Bags Are Getting Around and Spreading the Word
As people move into Rosemont, RCA is delivering to them a nice and useful bags of gifts from our merchants. Not only is it a nice way to say welcome to our new neighbors, it is a great way for our businesses to introduce themselves to potential new customers. If you know of a new neighbor recently arrived in Rosemont, please let us know so we can welcome them with a bag. And if you know of or are involved with a business that would like to get your word out to new customers, contact RCA at info@rosemontca.org and will help you have your information included in the bag at no cost.

Our Recreation and Park District Needs Rosemont Input
All our recreation and park services in Rosemont are provided by the Cordova Recreation and Park District, a special district which is supported by a tax collected as part of our property tax bill. The Board of Directors of the District is elected at large by the residents of the District. This year three board seats are up for election, and only two incumbents are running for re-election.

The CRPD area covers Rosemont and College Greens East on the west end (all the way to Watt Ave.) and as far east as Gold River. It is a large area with over 100,000 population. Much of the District is within the city limits of Rancho Cordova, which has a strong influence on District programs and services.

RCA monitors CRPD services and programs to assure the Rosemont area is well served and not overlooked. But CRPD will only serve our needs if we tell it what we want here. Otherwise our tax moneys may support programs elsewhere in the District. We urge all interested residents to be attentive to CRPD services and to consider attending its monthly Board of Directors meetings on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm, in the Rancho Cordova Council Chambers, 2729 Prospect Park Dr. off Hwy 50 at Zinfandel. All are welcome. You can learn more at the CRPD web site, www.crpd.com.

County Offers Water Wise Information
As our region experienced its third consecutive dry winter in late in 2013, the Sacramento County Water Agency asked its customers to make a voluntary 20 percent reduction in water use. The new Get Water Wise Initiative helps you achieve your conservation goals by organizing, categorizing and incentivizing water reduction options, tips and techniques. Learn about it HERE.
