GRAFFITI - We are experiencing a Graffiti epidemic in Aliante. There were

sixteen incidents of graffiti at sixteen different locations in Aliante in just one week from May 27 to June 2. Sadly, that was a typical week! We suspect the culprits are doing this in the very early hours of the morning. If you are out in the community during those hours, please keep your eyes open and report any incidents in progress to NLVPD. Please do not confront the perpetrators.

Well, there is: the Neighborhood Justice Center. The Center provides a forum for the impartial mediation of minor disputes, including neighbor to neighbor issues. The goal is to provide a continuum of alternative conflict resolution services, including facilitation, mediation and specialized training to those in need. The mediator does not decide who is right or wrong, nor will they make a decision on the issue. Their objective is to help both parties come to their own resolution and conclusion on how to end the conflict and assist with a written agreement. There is no cost for mediation, but some specialty services charge a nominal fee, so please check with the Justice Center to see which option may be best for you.

There’s safety in numbers. Encourage your child to walk in

Ensure that children on a bicycle, scooter or skates have a well-

fitting helmet with bright colored clothing to increase visibility. 

If riding, check brakes and air in tires before each ride.

Make sure that there is no loose clothing or gear such as loose

pant legs, backpack straps or shoelaces, which could become caught in your bike chain. Also wear sneakers when biking. Sandals, flipflops, shoes with heels, and cleats won’t help you grip the pedals. 

Only cross at designated crosswalks. Obey all traffic signs, traffic

lights, and crossing guard instructions. If you’re on a bike or scooter, walk and don’t ride through the crosswalk. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration advises to

follow the tried-and-true rule: Look left-right-left before crossing any street. To make sure that they see you, make eye contact with all approaching drivers before crossing the street. 

Walk or ride predictably in a straight line without weaving in

Stop for a school patrol safety officer or crossing guard using

Do not block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting
