Key Takeaways from RPNA Spring Meeting (5/11)

  1. The Water Meter installation in RP will not start in June as previously-announced.  The City is still negotiating with contractors, and it could start as late as March 2020.  More information to come.
  2. The City and Contractors working on the water meter project committed to “over communicate” with RP and have a number of dedicated resources to provide information and answer resident-specific questions (including the potential to schedule a visit to your residence).  Website is www.MetersMatter.org.  Information line is 916-808-5870.  E-mail to ask questions is watermeter@CityofSacramento.org.
  3. For the Two Rivers Trail, the City announced that the previous environmental document is no longer adequate, and they plan to do a full Environmental Impact Report.  The next step is a “Notice of Preparation” for the EIR, and they are potentially going to do a public meeting June 8 at Fremont Presbyterian Church.  More to come.  
  4. The Sacramento City Unified School District Board of Education is primarily looking at two areas to close the $35M deficit to avoid State takeover of the District: reducing the cost of health benefits and the number of students identified for Special Education. 
  5. The RP Tree Canopy Project is doing a big push this Fall to replace as many of the 64 trees recently cut down by SMUD.  Planting will be on Nov. 16, with a particular focus on suitable locations for the Valley Oak.  To apply for a free tree, see the link on the right column of the RPNA website or go directly to this link: http://riverparksacramento.net/rp-tree-project/river-park-tree-canopy-project-request-form/
  6. Local law enforcement encouraged utilization of the 311 apps (separate apps for City and County) to report non-urgent issues since entries on those apps create electronic reports for follow-up.
