Patriot's Park Wall of Honor Ceremony
Patriot's Park serves as a lasting monument honoring a special group of individuals who served our community and nation – and their names are listed on the park's Wall of Honor. On Saturday, November 7, at 10 a.m. the Carmichael Recreation and Park District will sponsor a special ceremony recognizing those heroes previously honored and adding the name of Sheriff's Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Deputy Danny Oliver who was killed in the line of duty in 2014. Located at 6827 Palm Avenue, the park and its Wall of Honor is a special place to reflect upon and never forget the special meaning of sacrifice made by those who served us wearing different uniforms – the U.S. Armed Services, law enforcement, and fire protection. For more information, please visit the Park District's website www.carmichaelpark.com.
State of the County Luncheon
As the economic epicenter for the six-county region, Sacramento County plays a vital role in the region's overall well-being. On October 30, the Metro Chamber presents the annual luncheon forum focused on where the County is today and the distinctive assets that can guide the direction of Sacramento County for tomorrow with respect to economic development. I'll be there along with my colleagues and other elected officials. For more information and to register, please visit http://web.metrochamber.org/events/eventdetail.aspx?EventID=11036
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.
