Saturday is Canyon Cleanup Day

trashIf you want to give back a little to our beautiful canyon and have a couple hours free Saturday morning, a group of Canyon residents will be getting together this Saturday, 5/16 at 9am for the Annual Glenoaks Canyon Cleanup. We'll be meeting at Glenoaks and Mt. Carmel and we'll spend an hour or two picking up trash and doing our part to make our awesome canyon just a little bit more awesome.

If interested please bring a rake an/or a broom, some large garden type trash bags and some work gloves. Hope to see you there.

A Big Thanks to Neighbors Who Came Out for Glendale Clean Up Day

beforepitching in Last Saturday, May 18th, was Glendale Clean Up Day. Thanks to all the neighbors that came out and helped clean Glenoaks Blvd. under the freeway and Mt. Carmel. These streets typically get a lot of garbage dumped on them and our canyon looks much nicer now thanks to the volunteer efforts of our canyon residents.

The proof is in the pictures.



[ALERT] Home Burglarized on Mt. Carmel Tuesday

There was a residential burglary on Tuesday on Mt. Carmel which occurred between the hours of 8:50am and 11:00am.  The point of entry was a bedroom window accessible from the hillside.  The front door was the point of exit and was left shut, but not locked.  Items taken include: two large screen televisions and jewelry.  All bedrooms were ransacked.

The Glendale Police Department is talking to neighbors and working leads.  The previous residential burglary was late in the day on a Friday (January 27 between 5:00PM-7:00PM) at the top of the Canyon.

Things to be vigilant about:

  • Keep watch on neighbors who have set routines.  They are predictable and become targets.
  • If you have access to your home from the side, consider fortifying the back like you would the front.
  • Look outside and pay attention to unusual activity.  If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.

Last week, we had thefts from several unlocked cars.  Interestingly, a block captain several neighborhoods over (Glenmore and Trenton) called in at 3:30am to report a male in a hoodie carrying a backpack trying door handles….How much do you want to wager that the next place he headed was up the Canyon?
