Balboa Block Watch

September 2013

Recap of Saturdays Meetings:

Thanks to all that came out to the annual Block Watch Meeting..and a special Thank You to Lt. Kelly and Officer Chavarria..they are always so helpful in helping our community address any issues and educating us on how to prevent further matters.



As always, we discussed why we have a block watch program, how it impacts our community, and how over the past year, we have seen a significant decrease in crimes here in Balboa Way, but surrounding areas have seen an increase...


(soooo.....either they know we are aware and not willing to attempt theft in our area, or we have been reallllllyyyy lucky...) I think its because we have a great community that is aware and doing their part! Keep it going!!!


A few reminders...

Always close your garage door!! Lt. Kelly made it clear that if drives thru our neighborhood and see's your garage door open, he will enter and join you for dinner... So please make sure you are closing it...(OR...be ready for an extra guest)


Timers on lights...especially with Holidays coming up...

check into sensor lighting, and replace any bulbs that may be burnt out...


Cars parked in the drive.. Chandler PD has seen a huge increase in broken windows..please make sure not to leave any personal belongings in the car and always park in a well lit area.


Last, but certainly not least...if you see anything suspicious...call the non-emergency number and report it! 480-782-4130



Becoming more involved in Balboa Way Events

Are you interested in helping to organize Events for our community?

Is it crazy that we have one of the BEST communities in South Chandler but no SUPER FUN events going on!!?? Well...without us (yep, the residents) planning them..they will not happen:(


Same thing with Holiday Lights:( We will be in the DARK for Holiday..like the Grinch!!!


Halloween Party? Nope....no super scary haunted house or carmel covered apples...

JUST THINK!! Pinterest ideas all a wasted because we can find people to make it happen.....


send me an email if you would like to help in planning a great community event or have suggestions for events...


Thanks a bunch!!
