Security & Traffic Safety Report – July 2018

Hi Neighbors,
It has been quiet on the securityfront for the month of June which is a
good thing. Please let me know and/or post any security related items to
our Blue Ridge Facebook site as this has been a great resource for the
BR community.

I want to remind everyone that we now have two camera’s monitoring our
beach park entrances. We have installed these to help us identify any
unwanted riff raff entering the park as well as any after-hours hooligans
that extend their stay past the 10:30pm closure time. We feel this will
increase the security around the beach park and make it a safer place for our families, friends and
protect our assets.

We hope you have seen and replied back to our Traffic Task Force Committee questionnaire. They
have been reviewing everyone’s feedback and for one of their first initiatives, you will see some mobile
“no parking” signs along 15thacross from the pool and the south side of Greenbrier between 9am2pm
and possibly during swim meets. This will make these streets a much safer place for all that use
them during the summer months. They are also looking to add a sign as you enter Blue Ridge letting
everyone know to “Please Look Out For Kids”. Please let them know if you have anysuggestions
and/or would like to join the Traffic committee. You can contact me or Jane Caron

Last but not least, if you are looking for ways to improve your safety then here are two suggestions:

1. Ring Neighborhoods – (
It’s basically a social network of people dedicated to reducing crime where users can post
videos of incidents and alert neighbors. In addition, Ring has partnerships with local law
enforcement, including Seattle, that will utilize recorded videos as evidence for finding and
prosecuting criminals. While the App is significantlytied into the Ring product feature set, you
do not need a Ring device to use the App, nor do you need a Ring device to share videos (e.g., I
can share Nest Cam, Blink, Arlo, etc videos within the Ring Neighborhoods app) – This
suggestion was from our neighbor Morgan F. – Thank you

2. USPS – Real Informed Delivery
This is a free service from USPS that digitally previews your mail and manages your packages
scheduled to arrive. Informed Delivery allows you to view greyscale images of the exterior,
address side of the letter-sized mail pieces and track packages in one convenient location. If
you have had any mail problems in the past then this could be a good solution. Some
additional features – Preview incoming letter-sized mail, track packages, provide delivery
instructions, schedule deliveries, and manage notifications.

Have a safe summer and remember that we are all responsible for making Blue Ridge a safe place –
drive slow and keep a look out for each other.
