Beware! The Return of the Towers!

Friday, May 12th, 2006

Commercial Communications companies are approaching citizens,
businesses and public groups to place relay towers on their property.

Two years ago citizens stopped a similar activity due to potential health
risks to the entire community and reduction of property values.

A community task force is working on developing a telecommunications
policy for the benefit of the entire village.

If you are approached to rent space for a tower, please contact the
Telecommunications Policy Committee Chair.

Neighborhood Watch Program Meeting May 6th 2006

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

This Saturday, May 6th, Deputy Ted Keehn will address the SBVA between 10 a.m. – Noon, over the merits of a Neighborhood Watch Program here in South West Marin. All those negatively impacted by: unlawful behavior; the continuance of substance abuse by locals, overtheHill transients and day time visitors to our community; crimes against personal property; home invasions & breakins; trash in our woods and beaches leftover from illegal campgrounds-should attend, voice their concerns, get questions answered and make suggestions on how to improve our living conditions in our Greater Community of SW Marin.

Remember, the improvement made in the cleanliness and return of security to the Beaches and surrounding neighborhoods of SW Marin during and after last Summers, 4th of July celebrations, due to the coordination and cooperartion of concerned members of the residential and business community of SW Marin with the Marin County Sheriffs Dept. and Ca. Hwy. Patrol, in order not to repeat the chaos of July 4, ’04.

Opinion:

Another Milestone for Crime due to Meth Use, the break-in of the Stinson Beach Medical Center in Stinson this week has stimulated the need for the creation of a Neighborhood Watch here, in SW Marin, or has it? Do we collectively need to pool information about what we experience and see on our Beaches, in our Woods and on our streets: the corruption of local youth; continued migration of lawless and drug addict homeless individuals that contribute broken beer bottles, litter, cram our medical centers in search of vicodin/pain killer prescriptions, drink openly in public, sell drugs[meth, heroin, crack] to locals as well as their own brethern, camp anywhere and everywhere, pose a health hazard and practice poor hygiene, break/squat in empty or occupied homes as well as vehicles; face it SW Marin is a pushover and ripe for the plucking.

This Saturday, the Stinson Beach Village Association will meet at 10a.m., there we can discuss this matter until Noon, do come and be frank about what is happenning in our greater Neighborhood of SW Marin, the intermittent car burglaries and all of the latter mentions, what to do about it, do we support our Local Law Enforcement, do we gather information and clean up this situation or continue the same.

Come voice your feelings on this matter, its going to be a long hot summer, afterwards a wet cold winter,,,They got to go somewhere else, maybe back to San Rafael or San Francisco, SW Marin is experiencing the Summer of Love but they ain’t the FlowerChildren.. John Posadas, Stinson Beach Chamber of Commerce, Stinson Beach Village Association Traffic Committee… If you can’t make it, email me your ideas on this matter and suggestions so they be aired at the meeting.
