Veterans Day
Join us to honor those who have served at our annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Monday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.

We'll gather at the Anaheim Veterans Memorial Monument, 241 S. Anaheim Blvd., for a ceremony. There will be a keynote speaker and free cake and refreshments.
Meet on Beach!
The future of Beach Boulevard is bright, and we’re ready to celebrate.

Meet us on Beach on Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We'll be closing down northbound Beach Boulevard from Orange Avenue to La Palma Avenue in Buena Park for a fun open streets party.

The idea? Jump on your bike, scooter, skateboard or your own two feet and journey the 1.5 miles from Knott’s Berry Farm’s Independence Hall in Buena Park to the West Anaheim Youth Center.

There will be food trucks, live music, giveaways and more all along the way.

Join us at the West Anaheim Youth Center for food trucks, kids activities, music and more. The Anaheim Ducks Street Team will have a street hockey rink, Alt 98.7 will have activities and giveaways, and Disney VoluntEARS will host a Junior Chef experience.

Please note: Northbound Beach Boulevard will be closed from Orange Avenue to La Palma Avenue from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 17. East/west traffic will still be let through at Lincoln and Crescent avenues. Southbound lanes on Beach Boulevard will remain open.

Maxwell Park Update
Plans for the new dog park at Maxwell Park are moving forward.

The park will include agility equipment, big and small dog areas, lighting and seating.

The features are a result of feedback we heard from residents during our community input process.

The project is scheduled to break ground by fall 2020, but staff is looking for ways to potentially make it happen even sooner.
West Anaheim Substation
Did you know we have a police station right here in District 1?

The Anaheim Police Department's West Station is right next to the West Anaheim Youth Center on Beach Boulevard.

The staff that operates out of the West Station are Homeless outreach team, Psychiatric emergency response team (PERT), and West District Community Policing Team. 

And there is someone at he front counter ready to take reports from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Anaheim Magazine
The fall issue of Anaheim magazine is out and you should have gotten a copy in your mailbox.

You can also find it online .

This issue includes a story on the “I am an American” exhibit at Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center, detailing the untold stories of Anaheim’s Japanese American families before, during and after World War II. Many are from west Anaheim.

The magazine also includes a feature on the beloved Anaheim Halloween Parade, and articles detailing progress on Beach Boulevard, new hotels coming to The Anaheim Resort, updates coming to parks in 2020 and our ongoing efforts to address homelessness.
Community Emergency Response Team
Disasters can happen at any time in Anaheim. We experience earthquakes, fires and flooding. Are you prepared to handle an emergency that is large in scale?

You can learn how to be more prepared for an emergency, and help others in your neighborhood, by joining the the Community Emergency Response Team, known as CERT for short.

If you join CERT, you'll learn basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations.
