Message from Los Angeles County Sheriff – Temple City Station

I will say I have had a couple thefts come from your area. Unfortunately the thefts from cars seem to be increasing in all areas not just Pasadena. The best thing I can say is make sure everyone keeps all valuables in their homes and not the vehicles. Also, do not keep things visible in the vehicles. If people see suspicious people walking around please give the station a call and they will send a Deputy out to check on it. If someone does become a victim of theft and have video surveillance of the incident then it needs to get to the Deputy when they take the report. I can look at the footage and try and identify the suspect.

Peafowl Survey Update

From the Office of Kathryn Barger 5th District Supervisor County of Los Angeles

Hi All:

Thanks so much for your participation in community discussions regarding peacocks. In an effort to ensure fairness and responsibility, the County Department of Animal Care and Control has posted a survey on their website, specifically relating to the potential removal of peacocks in Chapman Woods. This updated survey ties participants to their household, allows for only one response per home, and asks one simple question about support or opposition of removal.

The survey will run until September 30 in an effort to ensure ample time for disseminating information. Follow the link below to have your voice heard: 

Please feel free to share this email with your neighbors, post to Facebook, engage the community door-to-door, etc. We want as many participants as possible. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to follow-up with me directly. Looking forward to working with you,

Peafowl Survey

Dear Friend and Neighbor,
Did you awaken at 4 am this week, as I did, at the shrill screaming of peacocks??  Well…. A number of years ago, few if any peacocks lived in Chapman Woods.

Today, an army of peacocks lives here.  Some residents are experiencing the harm that these otherwise beautiful birds can cause: interrupting traffic flow; destroying landscaping; eating into asphalt roofs; dropping feces on trashcan handles, walkways, and children and pet play areas; attacking shiny dark cars when they see their reflection; and shrill screaming that disturbs the sleep and peace of mind. They are rapidly reproducing.  These conditions have prompted calls to reduce the number of peacocks, including their humane removal to farms and ranches.  (Palos Verdes did that successfully.) Our Supervisor, Kathryn Barger, requests that you complete the below survey to aid her in determining what, if anything, should be done.

Your Board is trying to spread the word that concerned residents should fill out this short survey of four questions, that is anonymous, to express your view.  Simply click on:
This must be done by May 1, if you want to influence the decision-making.
Let’s restore peace and tranquility to the Woods.
Thank you most sincerely,

Kathleen Tuttle

Online Home-Sharing Platform Survey

Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning is conducting a survey on people’s experiences with online home-sharing platforms for temporary lodging in a house or apartment instead of a hotel or motel. We are studying whether home-sharing provides positive benefits or negative impacts on our unincorporated communities. This anonymous survey is for people who share their homes, people who stay in hosted homes, and neighbors. No names or sign-ups are required to enter. If you receive this email on behalf of an organization, please forward this email with the survey link with all members of your organization.


Please respond by July 20, 2018 by clicking on the link below for the survey: LA County Home-Sharing Platforms Survey
