Tree Care During Drought

The ESIA urges East Sacramento residents to help our neighborhood trees survive the drought.

Did you know that watering trees is exempt from water restrictions and the City twice-a-week watering schedule as long as water wise techniques are used?

The Sacramento Tree Foundation is a great resource for helpful information.

A free copy of the Tree Foundation tree watering guide with techniques to save water while keep your trees healthy can be accessed here.

Or, check out the videos the Tree Foundation made with Be Water Smart to learn how to water both young and mature trees.

Shared Rideables (e-bikes & e-scooters) Enforcement

Effective November 19, 2019, the City of Sacramento Police and Public Works Departments will begin enforcement of all traffic and parking laws for users of shared rideables such as e-bikes and e-scooters.  Sacramento PD could cite users for traffic or vehicle code violations, and Public Works Parking Enforcement Officers will begin reporting parking violations to device operators, who may choose to pass those costs on to the individuals who improperly parked the devices.

Violations such as scooting on the sidewalk may result in citations of up to $207.  Companies, who are required to provide user education about rules and regulations, may receive a citation of $27.50 for an incorrectly parked device.

A complete list of all shared rideable regulations as well as information about where to park can be found on the City of Sacramento Shared Bikes and Scooters Webpage.

McKinley Park Parking

Signs were posted in mid-November 2019 to restrict  parking around the perimeter of McKinley Park (McKinley Blvd., Alhambra Blvd., G Street, H Street, 33rd Street, 35th Street and Park Way).  Parking is now limited to three hours, seven days a week.  Warnings will be issued for a short period after the streets listed are posted.  Tickets for non-compliance with the signage will be $47.50.
