BCA Community Update

Dear Community,

2020 has presented a variety of challenges to our Burbank community, and we wanted to post an update to share  the work that we continue to do behind the scenes. While meeting in person is a challenge we are doing what we can remotely and reaching out as we always have.

We have heard feedback from area residents about various items and we pledge to continue efforts and adapt the changes that we are all experiencing. While the circumstances have changed for all of us, there is still a need and desire to keep the Burbank as a place we can live in safely and be proud to call home. Onto the latest updates!

  1. General Community Safety: The Sheriff’s office has been dealing with budget cuts as well, and this included cuts to the Community Liaison role. We re-introduced ourselves to the current Lieutenant and Sergeant of Burbank Patrol Units. They have committed to sharing a quarterly report of events that take place in the Burbank that we can share with the community.
  2. Burbank Theater: We have made contact with the property management company go the Burbank Theater. They are aware of the current condition of the vandalized building. They have visited the site and evaluating options (adding a fence around the property, painting over graffiti, etc.). Now that we have identified the property management representative, we will keep at it to ensure positive actions are taken.

That’s all for now – we will expect to do more updates in this manner to provide more visibility into our behind the scenes activities.

As always – if you have specific concerns or problems, check out our Resource page and if you can’t find what you need, feel free to contact us or post on Nextdoor.

RECAP – BCA General Meeting – March 28, 2018

BCA General Meeting RECAP notes

March 28, 2018

Agenda:

1) Emergency Preparedness in the Burbank, by Patty Eaton
Patty provided some useful links regarding tools that county provides for emergency readiness.
AlertSCC – AlertSCC is a free, easy, and confidential way for anyone who lives or works in Santa Clara County to get emergency warnings sent directly to their cell phone, mobile device, email, or landline.
ReadySCC – ReadySCC helps you create a plan, put together a kit, and know what to do and where to go in an emergency. Please share with family, friends and neighbors. ReadySCC is free from the App Store or Google Play.
– Basic Readiness – Focus on Earthquakes! Simple tips that residents can easily follow:
a) Have a shoes/socks/flashlight by the bed
b) Confirm “secure” sleeping spaces for family and pets – make sure bookcases, etc. are secured so in case of an earthquake, sleeping areas will cause minimal damage from internal debris
c) Family communication plan – document/plan a way for your family to communicate in the case of an emergency.
d) Go Bag – have a bag ready so some basic supplies, important papers and communication devices. This way you can easily grab things in one place in the case of an emergency.

2) SCC District Attorney Update – There were some issues reported regarding parking on the sidewalk/curb area by the Burbank theater. Working with other Country groups, there were some signs installed to help mitigate this issue.  There is a Neighborhood Watch meeting in conjunction with the Buena Vista Community Association to be held at the Rose Garden Library at 7pm on April 19th, 2018. Finally, there continues to be progress with addressing illicit massage businesses, one of the challenges has been that the SCC Task Force is authorized for business located on property in the Burbank. For properties located in the City of San Jose (even if they are next to Burbank properties) – the jurisdiction process means that San Jose resources have to address violations.
