Stop allowing violent paroled convicts to be paroled to the Lake Elsinor area, which has one of the highest ex con parolees living in the state!!!!!!!,.......bring some upscale venues and improve the lake to make it a "go to" place for entertainment, relaxation etc.......revamp the old Murrieta hot springs to reasonably priced day spas and also bring in better restraunts around the lake itself, upscale the downtown to a quaint small town boutique stores and eateries. But FIRST get rid of the excon parolees that have flooded Lake Elsinor and make it a dump

Crack down on grafitti and gangs.

It seems to me that the city. Of lske elsinore (lakeland village - un incorporated riverside) recieves a stipen/fee from other surrounding cities for each homeless accounted for and for allowing released prisinor drop off. I don't think that even the best of these people raise anything but, similar children to populate the area. I think that this hss been going on since the 50's or so. So, until....

Lakeland Village receives no such stipend. The area needs to be given federal -state support to deal with the homeless along with the City of Lake Elsinore. The Lake and the area for various reasons attracts the homeless.

I seem to detect a common theme. Lake Elsinore: city of refuge for parolees, fugitives from the law and bums off the state looking for victims and a free ride. Forgot city of asylum for all the illegal aliens driven out of Murrieta, Temecula and points south which are patrolled by federal tax funded Border Patrol. Seems like there's room for improvement. But as long as Elsinore is the dumping ground for the surrounding areas' undesirable population, it'll always be the less desirable area.

I think Lake Elsinore does. I've been informed that it's been going on for decades... I wish u were correct r. Also, the police, and other special tasks forces, have done an amazing job: putting there life and personal sanity on the line for the good of the people. Then our government lowers there pay and then releases the criminals earily... I'm upset at that. How do u think our law enforcement feels about this... I couldn't do there job at all... Hat's off to all the men and women that protect us. They should be able to retire in 12-15 years for all the dismay they put up with. My heart goes out to all and the fallen in the line od duty officers. God bless you.

Started back in May of 2012 by running an undesirable family out of our neighborhood.

I'd like to see the parks open up again. This area could also use a nice public swim center. The Lake would be more desirable for a place to visit if something was done to the shoreline landscaping to make it more attractive and inviting. Residents seem to lack town pride. It's too bad, too because it's your town and you should take pride and ownership of it.

Enforce traffic laws,crack down on gangs,off road vehicle use on Cottonwood Cyn Rd. Have the guy who is making the big buck on the homes in Lake Elsinore Canyon Hills area,(PARDEE) that residences, use Cottonwood Cyn Rd as throroughfare, pave the road and make it SAFE for all!!! LET'S ALL TRY TO MAKE 2013 A BETTER year for our community!!!

Personally, keep patronizing local businesses and family owned. The CITY needs to have MORE police and sheriff patrolling. Not that the current don't do their job, it just seems like they are short staffed most weekends. We really have a problem with DUI and drugs in this area. The school district needs to start bussing students again and really focus on making the schools a desirable place to sen your children.

I think the question asked; What are you going to do to help improve Lake Elsinore and Wildomar? As community members we need to work together. We need to work with the police, the city council, the county and each other to accomplish these goals. Just complaining and making negative comments will not get us anywhere. Reach out to your neighbors, talk to them get to know them, then we can start working together to solve our problems.

We need to use our tax money to, Enforce traffic laws.Crack down on Gangs,off road vehicle use on Cottonwood Cyn. Rd Have the guy making BIG BUCKS(Pardee) pave Cottonwood Cyn Rd. The residences of the new homes in Canyon Hills use Cottonwood as a throroughfare to go from Bundy Cyn Rd to there homes and Canyon Lake. The Old dirt road is not maintained. by Wildomar ...Give us back to the county, Menifee,or Lake Elsinore . We already have a Menifee address, but we live in Wildomar. Hope we ALL have a SAFE, and HAPPY 2013

I pick trash out of the street every day. I report graffiti. I keep my yard nice and expect my neighbors and others in the community to do the same. If we want to help the community we all have to be responsible for taking care of it. The City only goes so far - if you want results, report code enforcement violations, report graffiti, download the app for your phone, bookmark the code enforcement site on your computer, be the squeaky wheel. Don't just sit home and complain.

I would love to see community events come back to Main St, the car show and Street Fair was always a great time for the community to come together and get to know each other and also have some fun. This town needs to bring in retailers for shopping and places to eat so residents are not taking their tax dollars to surrounding towns, the police do a great job, it is time for the planning department, city council, city Manager and Mayor to make things move forward they have all been lax for too long. They need to do their jobs.

I plan to volunteer as much as I can. It would be nice to see a medical center built here.
Cynthia Smith January 02, 2013 at 02:03 PM
Thank you!!

Have you ever considered going back to school and learn how to spell correctly ?

Lake Elsinore is growing better and stronger. Support City Hall, Police, Fire and eachother by being good citizens, reporting crime, pulling over when we hear sirens, coming together for better ways to help the homeless and if you have time get involved in community service....Every city needs Prayer!! This citizen will continue in prayer, leaning on God who cares for our families & communities. Those of you interested in doing the same, pray for Lake Elsinore and Wildomar once a day everyday as you would for the members of your family, after all our city is an extention of our families. God Bless our Cities and those who oversee it <3

In 2013 I would like to see more cleaning up in lake elsinore, a grocery store built on grand, less convicts, a community garden would be nice. I just moved into Lakeland village 7 months ago and I have seen less graffiti where I live. I usually call the hotline. Keep it up Elsinorians.
