CARE FOR YOUR DOGS
Unless you’re at the dog park, all dogs must be kept on a leash when out and about. A dog left out to bark all day and night isn’t pleasant for anyone. Be courteous and take care of your dog. Contact Animal Services at (707) 253-4451 for loose or barking dogs.
ENJOY THE OUTDOORS
Get outside! Go for a walk. Ride your bike. We are lucky to have such beautiful trail systems in our city and in neighboring areas. It’s not only good for your health, getting outside will also help you become familiar with your neighborhood and your neighbors.

Every other week, the street sweeper cleans our public streets. Be a good neighbor and move your car so the sweeper can do the best job possible! Your street is cleaned the day after your garbage pick-up. View the schedule here.
GARAGE & YARD SALES
You may have up to 6 sales per year, each one lasting up to 3 consecutive days. Keep your neighborhood clean by taking your signs down immediately after the sale. Placing signs on public signs and poles in the right-of-way or on utility poles is illegal. Instead, sign up for our Annual Community Wide Yard Sale.
Help keep your neighborhood beautiful! Your lawn, trees and shrubs do not have to be perfect, just maintained. Messy yards are a signal to the bad guys that you are not home. Trees and shrubs must have a 3 foot clearance from sidewalks and fire hydrants.
