Love Riverside UNA Valencia Hills Dr Median Make Over

 We’re planning to add a few cactus and some drought tolerant plants to this forgotten focal point.

A morning make-over. Looking for a few volunteers.

We can use a few with shovels, and a pick up would make quick work of transporting  plant starts.

Start the day at Sherman Indian School, have some coffee and rolls.

Photos and off to an morning make-over.

Riverside Stem Academy Going To College?

Riverside Stem Academy Brain TrustUniversity neighbors are well aware of the popularity and success of the Riverside Stem Academy. We see the evidence Monday thru Friday on Watkins Dr, Mt. Vernon and the other neighborhood streets.

We’re also aware of UCR’s development plans as many of us participated in the scoping sessions. Discussions have been underway about some creative collaboration between RSA and UCR and it’s all designed to happen on UCR’s campus.

There are two sites under consideration for the RSA / UCR multi-use building. One is Lot 13 off of Big Springs Rd. The other is Lot 30 at MLK and Canyon Crest.

Which one do you think makes the most sense to our quality of life?

The key issue for the neighborhood is traffic. STEM traffic and campus traffic. It’s all the same and happens at the same time each day.

If we want to have an impact on traffic, and a say about this, start following the issue.

New science-based high school set for … UC Riverside?

We as a community have multiple opportunities to share our voices. Start writing letters, sending emails, making public comments at RUSD Board meetings.

We’re all aware of the increased air pollution that accompanies more traffic. We are a City that espouses to be committed to healthy communities. There’s no reason this can’t work out for the best interests of all concerned.
