******President's Corner*****

While we're on the subject of public safety and preservation of the rural lifestyle in Shadow Hills, I'd like to remind everyone that the high speed train threat to ALL of us remains very real. Two things: first, this past week, after months of being ignored by Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez, the SAFE Coalition leadership group of more than 30 community activists and leaders produced more than 50 letters, phone calls and office visits to Monica Rodriguez requesting, in the most civil terms possible, the urgent need for a meeting between the knowledgeable SAFE Coalition and the Councilmember and her new, inexperienced staff. So far, those requests continue to be ignored and there is no meeting planned. Second, December 2nd is the three year anniversary of the high speed train threat. Three years of either inaction or ineffective representation by our local elected officials. Please circle that date on your calendar. Both of these issues will get a lot of attention in the upcoming weeks and we will need our community strong and united in order to get the representation voted for and paid for by you and your tax dollars. We may be calling on YOU for support in the next few weeks. If you have any questions, please call me at 310-502-7928. Thank you.

Shadow Hills Property Owners Association (SHPOA) is a “let’s get stuff” done association.  We don’t police what color you paint your house or if your garbage cans are put out too early, but we are the leaders in opposing projects that threaten our community in terms of character and way of life.  SHPOA was founded in 1964 as a result of the 210 freeway threatening to dissect our neighborhood and it turned out to be our first of many success stories in preserving our way of life. Since then, we’ve fought to protect our open spaces, trails, and residential properties. We were part of the community coalition that successfully stopped The Home Depot and the solar farm from being built in our area.  But unfortunately there are continuing fights such as the high speed train, growing thefts from our doorsteps, mailboxes, and cars on our streets, commercial and residential over-development, encroachment onto our trails, the new cannabis proposed regulations, and much more. These fights aren’t won with magic: They are won by volunteers like you!

Please consider giving a bit of your time and energy this year by volunteering for one of the positions below OR just volunteering to help in general on one or more of our committees. THIS COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU! Still a little hesitant? Don’t be! We can match your interests with needs in the community. If you want to help, let's sit down and talk, and find a way to optimize your involvement.

Just one thing: You do need to be current on your membership to be eligible.  If you’re not sure of your status, please contact our Membership Chair, Jacqy Gamble at jacqyagamble@gmail.com. It’s easy to renew your membership at www.SHPOA.us
