Arden Arcade Business Walk
The Sacramento Metro Chamber and Arden Arcade Business Council will be sponsoring its annual “Business Walk” on Friday, November 13, that morning which involves volunteers canvassing local businesses about the area’s economic climate. Past efforts provided valuable input that led Sacramento County to make infrastructure improvements on major commercial corridors, respond to code enforcement issues as well as address public safety concerns. For more information and to register, please contact the Sacramento Metro Chamber website or call 552-6800.
Helping Those in Need this Thanksgiving
Many of us begin to reflect upon our blessings as Thanksgiving approaches and realize that there are those among us who are in need. The Sacramento Food Bank provides an annual Turkey Distribution. If you would like to donate, please visit www.sacramentofoodbank.org. You can also show support by participating in the annual Run to Feed the Hungry race on Thanksgiving morning with all net profits benefiting the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services.
Sheriff’s Toy Project
The Sheriff’s Toy Project has been serving our community since 1984 providing gifts as well as food boxes to less fortunate families.

Donations are welcomed. For more information, please visit their website.

Success for Watt Avenue in North Highlands
The Board of Supervisors has approved the formation of the Watt Avenue Property and Business Improvement District (PBID) consisting of properties in the area between Watt Avenue, Roseville Road and Interstate 80. This PBID will provide funding for services with an annual assessment to property owners during a five-year term subject to renewal in 2020. A new nonprofit corporation, the Watt Avenue Partnership, is being formed to serve as the property owners’ association. The Partnership will form a board of directors consisting of property owners and business representatives to oversee the services in the PBID. This effort is aimed toward to increasing business occupancy, property values and sales, and attract new tenants. For more information about the PBID, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
