The Parks & Recreation Department seeks your input on Agnew Park Rehabilitation Project.

The project includes the playground and updating the park Site Master Plan at Agnew Park.  Once the playground is complete, additional community priority items in the Master Plan will be addressed when funding becomes available. In 2017, the City retained Volz Design to conduct public outreach and develop a schematic design that meets the neighborhood needs and research based best practices.
The survey is open through April 5th.

Breathe California of the Bay Area returns for another free, informative, and interesting talk, this time on sleep apnea. Roughly 90% of people experiencing obstructive sleep apnea are not diagnosed and effectively treated, because they are unaware of how dangerous the symptoms are. If your bed partner is keeping you awake or you find yourself nodding off any time you sit down for a minute, come learn how to tell if sleep apnea is the problem and what to do about it. Literally, this could save your life.
