Neighborhood Safety
We have had a string of break-ins lately that remind us that no neighborhood is immune to

crime. If everyone is watching out for each other, then we can build up our sense of community

and help each other out. Here are a few reminders and recommendations for everyone in the

neighborhood.

  1. Work together with your neighbors; get to know who lives around you.
  2. Watch for and report suspicious or unusual behavior. Remember that we are not vigilantes, so don’t assume the role of police yourself.
  3. Physical conditions like abandoned cars or dark and overgrown lots contribute to crime. Clean up your yard, or help your neighbors to clean up their yards, and turn on outdoor lights at night.
  4. Lock up your doors, windows, and cars and set your home alarm if you have it.
  5. If your older children are home alone, make sure your alarm is set and the doors and windows are locked. Make sure they have a landline to use in the event of an emergency.
  6. Help your children to learn important phone numbers like your work or cell phone numbers. Make sure they know to call 408-277-8911 from their cell or 911 from a landline first before calling Mom, even. The Police can’t respond if they don’t get a call.
  7. Choose a safe house nearby for your children to go to if they need help.
  8. Know your children’s friends and encourage your older children to get involved in positive school and community activities.


Meetings can be organized for specific streets in the Rancho Santa Teresa Swim & Racquet Club area. Neighborhood watch meetings are organized by street. If your street is not being included, then you can organize your own meeting by calling Sonia Azevedo, Crime Prevention Specialist at 408-277-4133 or sonia.azevedo@sanjoseca.gov but you need a minimum of 10 people. If your meeting is going to be held at the Club please call Alana Martinez at 408-277-5758 for scheduling. Source: www.ncpc.org




Hello Neighbors!

We continue to regularly follow COVID-19 updates and are ready to open the club as soon as we are allowed to do so. We are brainstorming on ways to potentially extend the season so we can get as much fun in as possible once we open.  Once we know, we will communicate plans via Facebook (Follow us at @RanchoST). For those ‘glass-half full’ folks, one side benefit is that we have been able to get essential scheduled mainte- nance done while being very cost effective, including a safety stair rail on the Sorrento entrance and replacing the broken stovetop in the hall (see pictures on page 2). Also, a renovation of the bar on the upper deck was completed in March (see above).

The Board is spending time looking at options for solar, which could potentially save money for us. We expect to have some options to share with you over the next few months.

Hopefully you are all staying safe and sane :) Keep sending positive thoughts that we get the go ahead to start opening soon!
