STK t-shirt

Save The Knolls
T-shirt is Here!

In 2004 we all wore red shirts to the Board of Supervisors meeting where we successfully deterred a high density re-zoning attempt. In bright red, this t-shirt is a must-have for all Knolls residents— especially when we go to future county meetings about re-zoning issues this fall. You can purchase your shirt at Save The Knolls T-Shirt

Don't wait to the last minute, these shirts take two to three weeks to deliver! Of course, these t-shirts are not required attire, but they are cool!

Ventura County Sheriff's Office -
Senior Deputy Daniel Vanover

We heard from Deputy Vanover recently and he wanted the residents to be aware that the Sheriff’s office has responded to several calls for service along the Santa Susana Pass Road – specifically between Lilac Lane and the Santa Susana Park. The calls have been varied, but involved people that do not live in the area and were behaving suspiciously. One property on Rocky Road was burglarized once and then someone was on the property one other time.

So, the message here is to be vigilant and to report suspicious activity. In an emergency call 911. To report something suspicious call the non-emergency line at (805) 654-9511.

This is just a reminder to be aware and informed. Sheriff Vanover says that “There is no reason to worry, nothing horrible has happened and there are no increased crime trends. The Knolls has one of the lowest calls-for-service rates for any area the Sheriff's Office patrols. But I want to keep it that way so I need the help of the residents to point out things that don't seem right. We can then figure out if there is a crime or not.”

Sheriff Vanover plans to attend the next HOA meeting on April 2.
