Hearing on Kiefer Banners Set
RCA together with the County has been working on a way to help alert our community to major events happening here, and we have proposed a plan to install a banner system over Kiefer Blvd. just west of South Port Dr. The banners would be up for a short time before events such as the annual membership meeting, the annual Celebration of Community, the Santa Parade and Toy Drive, etc. To comply with County procedures, there will be a public hearing on the plan to be held on Thursday, May 7 at 7:00pm at the start of the monthly RCA Board meeting at Atonement Church, 9242 Kiefer Blvd. All are invited to learn more about the proposal and offer your thoughts.

SMUD to Present on Possible Rate Increases

Our electrical utility, SMUD, is planning to hold a short workshop to inform Rosemont residents about a proposed rate increase at the beginning of RCA’s monthly board meeting on May 7. Officials from SMUD will describe the situation that has led to the utility’s making the proposal and what exactly the options are, as well as fielding questions. This will be a good opportunity to learn more about this important matter and get your questions answered. RCA is happy to be able to make this informative opportunity conveniently available to our residents. The meeting will be at Atonement Church, 9242 Kiefer Blvd. beginning at 7:00pm.

Voice Your Concerns at the RCA Annual Membership Meeting
Here is your chance to tell officials what’s on your mind! RCA’s annual membership meeting on May 13 will feature some of our local officials – Supervisor Don Nottoli, and SCUSD Trustee Christina Pritchett. We will also have representatives of the Sheriff’s Department, and there may be others attending. So come with you questions and concerns and join in the discussion. In addition, we will have representatives of most of the agencies that provide services to Rosemont so you can chat with them as well. And there will be a short RCA business session and board election. The information tables open at 6:30 and the meeting begins at 7:00pm, ending by 9:00pm. The meeting is at the Rosemont High cafeteria.

Essence of Rosemont a Big Hit
A record crowd turned out for the 6th annual Essence of Rosemont event on Friday evening, April 10, at Rosemont High School. Essence showcased all the great programs in which our RHS students are involved – a very impressive array indeed. Among the activities on display were the culinary academy with tasty treats; the art club with its impressive works; the drama program with demonstrations; the band with a stirring concert; the drum line with its lively percussions; the robotics club with its dueling robots; lots of talented entertainment; games for all, and a wide variety of tasty treats. The event was a wonderful reminder of what capable and impressive students we have in our community – a real promise for the future. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see some pictures of the event.

RHS Rummage Sale - Join in and Unload, or Come Shop for Bargains

Either way, come and have fun at the RHS front parking lot on Saturday, May 16 between 8am and 2pm. Click HERE for more details.


Bike Riding Safety Reminders
A quick reminder to all who like riding bikes. Traffic laws required that you ride WITH traffic, not against it, just as if you were a car. Be especially alert to cars coming up behind you, and also alert to pedestrians who you may be passing. Give them plenty of clearance, and prepare for the unexpected. They may not know you are there and may make a sudden move that would be dangerous to both of you.

Fly Kites Safely
If you enjoy kite flying (and who doesn’t?), just remember to fly away from any power lines. Not only can they be very dangerous to you as you fly your kite, but it can cause a serious, dangerous and costly power outage. Enjoy safe kite flying afar away from any power lines.

Be a Leak Freak – Look for and Stop Leaks, and Save Money

REPORT!!!
If you see something that seems suspicious or wrong, PLEASE REPORT IT to the Sac Sheriff’s Department (874-5115, unless it is a real emergency, then call 874-5111 or 911). It just might be the bit of information or person they need to solve a crime, even if you aren’t sure of its significance. At the least, it alerts law enforcement to a problem, and reminds them that Rosemont residents are not willing to let bad things happen here.
