    Neighborhood Watch Report: The Northwest Quadrant
    Carter-Frisbie
    Posted by webmaster on 06/03/2011   
                                                                   
    The Carter-Frisbie neighborhood is bordered by Carter Street to the west, Frisbie Street (Sunrise Cemetery) to the north,
    Santa Clara Street to the east and Coghlin Street to the south. The watch group has deliberately kept the parameters small to
    enhance the closeness of the community.

    The Carter-Frisbie watch group formed in the wake of a suspected break-in during early March. It was unclear whether an actual
    burglary had occurred, and though the police did respond, the city took three days to come out and board up the house (by which
    time the neighbors had done it themselves).
                  


    Neighborhood Watch Report: The Northwest Quadrant
    Country Club Crest
    Posted by webmaster on 06/03/2011

    Things have been fairly quiet in the northeast corner of the Crest from January through May. There have been a couple of
    incidents that required looking into, but no real issues.

    The only incident in our cul-de-sac occurred at the beginning of April at about 11:30 pm. One of the neighborhood watch
    captains was returning home from work and observed a suspicious looking young man hanging around the corner near a
    neighbor's home.

    Posted by webmaster on 06/03/2011  

    We are another recently formed group, and our neighborhood adjoins the Carter-Frisbie area mentioned in this same
    issue of the Lamplighter.

    More specifically, our neighborhood includes: Santa Clara Street from Farragut to Frisbie, plus the short connecting
    blocks between Carter and Sacramento Street: Farragut 400 block, Hichborn 600 and 700 block, Coghlin 300 and 400
    block, Denio Street and the part of Frisbie not included in Carter Streets watch (nos. 122-296).

    Vallejo Annex
    Posted by webmaster on 06/03/2011

    Forging neighborhood unity has been key to the success of our neighborhood watch program. It lets outsiders know that we
    are on alert and there for each other.

    Recently there was a vacant house at the corner of Wallace Avenue and Georgia Street and drug addicts were living inside.
    They had ransacked the interior and had removed appliances, copper piping, furniture, and other items.

    The Heritage District
    Posted by webmaster on 06/03/2011

    The Heritage District is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Vallejo, with a very rich history. The city’s earliest settlers—including
    General Vallejo himself—plus politicians, naval commanders and other prominent citizens have all resided here. Many of us
    take considerable pride of ownership in these historical landmarks.

    The neighborhood is bordered on the south by Curtola Boulevard, on the north by Florida Street, on the west by Sonoma
    Boulevard and on the east by the railroad tracks past Monterey Street.

    Laurel Street Neighborhood Watch 500 Block
    Posted by webmaster on 05/17/2011

    A Cautionary Tale Concerning
    Squatter Tenants — and WELLS FARGO

    The Laurel Street Neighborhood Watch 500 Block is very thankful for the recent police assistance and
    outstanding support we received from the team at Fighting Back Partnership in dealing with a problem
    concerning squatter tenants (people who surreptitiously move into and take over foreclosed properties).

    In particular, Fighting Back’s John Allen dealt with the problem tenants promptly and professionally, and
    spared us a more extended confrontation.

Vallejo Heights Neighborhood Association Improving
Community    

Last month in October together with Fighting Back Partnership,
members of the Vallejo Heights Neighborhood Association (VNHA)
participated in a clean-up event targeting litter and graffiti in
Northwest Vallejo/Vallejo Heights.  Three dumpsters were filled with
trash and one green waste dumpster was filled with weeds, and
tree/yard trimmings.

    Heritage Neighborhood: A Neighborhood’s Dilemma
    Posted by webmaster on 12/08/2011


    The Problem

    What does a neighborhood do when a local business acts as a magnet for troublemakers and crime?

    Get angry?
    Hide behind locked doors?
    Ignore the situation?
    Take action?

    The Heritage Neighborhood has been dealing with such a problem for quite a while, and we’re confronting it
    head on.

    Posted by webmaster on 03/30/2012

    This week I experienced a feeling that I have never in my life had before and I have travelled abroad for almost
    50 years. Arriving back in the states this week at San Francisco airport, one terminal was shut down for several hours
    due to a bomb scare. When I drove home into Vallejo, I stopped at the intersection below my house and looked up the
    dark street before I began meandering back and forth in order to shine my headlights onto yards and then the alley way
    on the perimeter of my property. The street light had been out for over a year and I was gloomy being reminded of the
    fight with the city for the light as well as the Neighborhood Watch signs we had been trying to get put up.
