We're excited to announce that our next UAS (Drone) Neighborhood Zoom Meeting will encompass the neighborhood groups shown shaded here; Dana Estates, East Concord, Monte Gardens, San Vincente, and Silverwood. The meeting will be tomorrow, Tuesday 05/11, 6-7:30pm and both English and Spanish speaking officers will be present.

Here is the link for Tuesday’s event:
https://cityofconcord.zoom.us/j/98125642228?pwd=Y3dSUmw2SE9EZHZnWGdtSXdPeWp6UT09

Passcode, if needed: 304002

The Concord Police Department will be hosting a series of Neighborhood Zoom Meetings regarding the potential creation of a Public Safety Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) program and we are looking for input from the Concord Community.

Small remotely operated UAS, also commonly referred to as drones, have successfully been implemented in Public Safety across the country and these programs have proven to be an efficient and effective tool used to enhance First-Responder services to a community. Several First-Responder agencies in Contra Costa County have proven UAS programs in place and our Police Department is looking forward to hearing from our strongest partners-YOU our Community Members, as we explore the development options of our own UAS program. This announcement will be posted to NextDoor and our Twitter page.

Please feel free to comment if you're planning on joining us and let us know what you're interested in hearing about! Any questions, please contact Lieutenant, Nick Gartner at (925) 671-5095, or via email at [email protected].

Domestic violence? Domestic disagreement? Spilled apple juice?! Domestic violence? Domestic disagreement? Or failure to preceive a emotional moment over a spilled apple juice box in my Tesla. Who ever called on my house at 1764 Danesta Drive can DM me. Otherwise, keep your nosey nose on your face and do something else during Covid (you have too much time on your hands).

Saw this little mostly black dog on Lynwood about a block down from the pool at 7:50am. By the TIM I could cross the street he was gone. Looked like he had on tags.
I borrowed this from someone else’s post. Author unknown. 😢 As I read through this, I was thinking about all the people affected by the Camp Fire and how just a few short weeks ago were likely spending their weekends with family & friends, watching football & basketball, planning their Holidays. This could happen to ANY community. We must be grateful for what we have, while staying prepared for when the day may come that brings this even closer to home. This appeared on my Facebook feed, and I wish I could list the author’s name. God bless whomever wrote this. You touched my heart: I’m sorry - Please excuse the smoke. It’s just the dreams and hopes of 27 thousand yesterdays. It’s just the minuscule evidence of That one baby picture, That painting of the sea captain by my brother, And those family portraits of the past 40 years. It’s just the piano from my grandmother who passed away years ago that my brother just brought back from Iowa. Excuse the hazardous air quality. It’s just the thousands of saved kid’s drawings and crafts, books, children’s toys from years gone by that had been unpacked for grandchildren, wedding certificates, diaries, the favorite pillows, that favorite teddy bear from baby years, the 1960s records and the VHS tapes of birthday parties and graduations. It’s just the houses of my childhood friends where we would play in the late summer evenings and spend nights dreaming of what our grownup years would bring. Not knowing that our futures would all hold this moment in time as our collective yesterdays ascend to the sky. Please excuse the falling ash. It’s just the church where I grew up attending with all the children’s songs, VBS programs and the baptismal where I chose to dedicate my life to God. It’s just the aisle where I stood and looked at the man on the day that I said “I Do”. The falling ash - It’s just Paradise. A little non-destination town that’s not on the way to anything important. It’s just that end-of-the-road town where people settle and know each other and roots run deep. It’s just a place where the biggest news was that Taco Bell came to town 20 years ago - until Starbucks finally made it 4 months ago. Paradise - it’s just the place where everyone is your neighbor, as backyards are shared and simple icons are known and loved. Icons that are now ashes falling around you (sorry about that). Icons like Fosters Freeze. Gold Nugget Days. Honey Run Road Covered Bridge. That one antique store, just to name a few. Icons like Kalico Kitchen where my dad and I had breakfast on the day of my wedding, just the two of us. Icons like Darlene’s Frozen Yogurt and Round Table Pizza where many birthday parties growing up took place, not to mention the take home pizzas to mom and dad on weekends we would visit. Personal icons like the Lucas’s house where many days and nights were spent as we grew up from toddlers, to grade school, to junior high, taking care of animals, watching movies, going trick-r-treating, and discovering our first crushes together. Icons like the Muth house, where we made brownies and talked about boys and got ready for banquets and wrote songs, and led out in different high school student leadership opportunities. Icons like the youth room at the church where we discovered so many amazing things together and planned mission trips and prayer conferences and learned what it meant to be used by God right here and right now. Icons like Rincon Way house where we would watch different phases of our family’s life every year as we gathered for potlucks, game nights or just hear some good music. Or Country Club where huge gatherings would take place like the 4th of July party for the neighborhood, or just coming together for brunch, or talking about religion and politics. Or Peterson’s house where we would eat the most delicious Swedish treats and have a visit from Santa. Or all the houses around town that we lived in since age 2, (that are now all gone) and finally settling on what would become home: Boquest Blvd. Boquest, where breakfast was late, like nights, and eras of my life passed within those 4 walls - from pr***en, to high school, and as the walls of my room changed their decor as they held my changing eras like a quiet, constant friend. The early mornings getting ready for school, the late nights studying or dreaming of tomorrows that are now todays. The Christmas eves and mornings where my brother would wake me up to go open our stockings. The night I spent in that room with my sister before the day of my wedding, our conversations waning into the early morning. The years and eras fleeting now in hindsight, as most recently these four walls had been a refuge for my aging parents. And not knowing that 1 month ago would be my final farewell to my constant silent friend - my room - where I spent a few nights with my infant son as we cherished time with family. Icons like Billie Park where I would go on hikes with my friends as a pr***en and teen, and then later take my hubby as we dreamt of the future, and then most recently would take my own 2 children to play and romp and just be...in Paradise. ... And not to mention all the lives that were lost: mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, grandparents, beloved pets ... But please, once again, excuse our smoke. It’s just what’s left of what was one of the most unique little settlements in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains: what was Paradise.💔”
