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!

New County Garbage App Makes Life Easier
If you've ever lost track of garbage day or raced outside after hearing the garbage truck, you're in luck:  Residents of the unincorporated area who receive County Waste Management and Recycling services can sign up for a customized electronic reminder service called “ReCollect”.  This new widget tool makes it easy to access information about garbage, recycling, and green waste pickup schedules. For more information click HERE.

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.

RCA Communications Plans Being Revised
Perhaps RCA is one of the best kept secrets in Rosemont, and we want to change that. There is too much potential here to have people not know what is and can happen in Rosemont. So RCA is forming ambitious plans to revise our newsletter to include both electronic and limited print version; expand our Face Book presence; redesign a more appealing, livelier and useable web site; create a new member email alert system; and start an effective business component that benefits both our members and our businesses. We hope, too, to engage some of our younger generation and students in building these improvements. This is a large and undertaking that will take a while, so bear with us. And in the process we welcome your ideas about what would be useful to you as a resident or a business. And if y0ou have a talent to help make this all happen, we’d welcome your involvement. Please contact RCA at info@rosemontca.org with your ideas.


After You Take Out the Trash, Remember to Bring In Your Cans

Remember, our ugly trash receptacles are NOT street or yard ornaments. Each house in the Rosemont area has side and back yards, or at least an area where the trash cans can be stored out of view. Leaving the cans sitting out in view of the street brings our neighborhood down and makes us all look bad. It does not take that much extra effort to roll them back out of sight when bringing them in from the curb. Please help keep Rosemont looking nice by doing this – and encouraging your neighbors to do the same. Thanks.

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.
