University Neighborhood Newsletter   June 2010

Greetings Neighbors!

A hearty thank you again to all those who were part of the standing room crowd who showed up to weigh in on the proposed Perris Valley Metrolink Line.
The potential negative impacts from this project as proposed are insufficient to guarantee minimal safety in the event of a derailment, toxic spill, gas line explosion or an earthquake. Now we’re told UCR is once again planning to locate their Environmental Health and Safety building back on Valencia Hill and Watkins Dr.
Routing hazardous materials through a residential neighborhood and locating the collection point next to the Child Development Center plus the safety issues of the Perris Valley Line and it’s not so surprising to comprehend how a coal mine could explode in West Virginia or an oil spill in the gulf could happen. The common denominator was profit and cost vs. safety.
Our June meeting, Thursday June, 10th is at 6:30 p.m. at Crest Community Church.
We will be discussing our strategy. Please forward this email to your neighbors and in particular, anyone you know who is faculty, staff or retired from campus. We’re looking for the broadest possible perspective from campus insiders and stakeholders.
This project had been resolved when the University agreed after a neighborhood uproar, to relocate this building on King Drive and Canyon Crest – next to the freeway ramps. At that time we thought we had reached a milestone. UCR actually considered our concerns and made a decision in everyone’s best interests.
World Cup games will be shown FREE at Ultra Star at University Village. All games starting after 6:30 a.m including Mexico, USA, Brazil, Argentina and Spain.
National Night Out Planning Committee is looking for eager party planners. We’re looking to expand on last year’s exceptionally successful event. If you have a good idea, and love planning a “must-go-to-event” that leaves your neighbors more connected and with memorable stories to share, we want to meet you. Contact us.
In the meantime, if you haven’t already registered on the neighborhood website, do it now. That’s the first step to make comments, post links or share your thoughts. 

See you Thursday.
