National Night Out

National Night Out will be held on the evening of Tuesday, October 4th.

National Night Out, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, is a neighborhood crime and drug prevention event that occurs annually and is celebrated in every city, town and village in the US. In addition to increasing awareness of crime and drug prevention programs, NNO also strengthens neighborhood spirit and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that "neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime!"

For the schedule of events and registration form, visit the SAPD's official National Night Out website:

Fall Garage Sale

The Fall Garage Sale is scheduled for Saturday, October 29th, from 9 am to 5 pm. NCTONA takes care of advertising in the Express News and putting signs at some entrances to the neighborhood. A map is compiled of the neighborhood with each street marked that is having at least one sale. Addresses of participants are also included on the map.

If you wish to participate and be included on the map there are several steps as follows:

Are You Ready For Any Emergency?

One of our neighborhood residents took the time to attend some informational meetings on Emergency Preparedness and wanted to share this information.  Here is a checklist and another resource guide for your information:

Pushy Security System Representatives

Apparently there have been several complaints in our neighborhood about men representing security system companies and being rather pushy about coming into your home for an "inspection".  Fortunately, we have Constable Mark Vojvodich living in our neighborhood and his deputies approached 2 men in late June who actually were representatives of a security system company.  They were interviewed by the deputies have been gently told to desist from being so aggressive that they are scaring people.

Request Patrol of Your House While Away

Did you know you can request the Bexar County police to do additional patrols by your house while you are away?  Go to their website and click on "Patrol Request" to fill out a form and submit to them with the appropriate information.  They will even email you when a patrol has been completed while you are on vacation!

Did You Know?

On April 30, 2015, the San Antonio City Council unanimously approved the elimination of the City's pet licensing program. An ordinance amendment was approved making a registered microchip the primary means of licensing for pets living within the San Antonio city limits. Residents do not have to formally register their pet's microchip with the City or ACS - microchips only need to be registered with the microchip manufacturer.

Recycle Plastic Bags!

Beginning August 1, 2014, San Antonio residents who receive recycling and garbage service from the Solid Waste Management Department will be able to recycle plastic bags in their blue recycling cart. Simply bundle the bags, make sure the bags are free of paper and receipts and that they are completely dry before placing the bags inside your main bag. Then tie the handles securely (See photo).
