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!

Security lighting may deter random crime Ventura County Sheriff Dan Hanover said at last month's HOA meeting. However he thought placing security and mood lights on timers and motion detectors was a sound neighborly idea to avoid annoying your neighbors with constant light pollution. Not wasting lighting also means saving money on your electric bill whose rate also went up last year. For more info on light pollution please read this article on the National Geographic site.
