CAROL TIMM WORKS TO BRING NEW POLICE SUB-STATION TO HISTORIC DOWNTOWN UPLAND
Like so many Upland residents, I have a passion to see our downtown thrive and be the best place to be ! Living in the downtown area on 9th Street for 35 years, I have seen this area ebb and flow throughout the years going from thriving to ghost town to going forward again. After hearing about various problems with crime in the downtown from merchants and residents, I felt it was vital for the safety of the community to have a police substation there. Working with our chief, city manager and mayor they all agreed this would be a perfect location for a sub station on East 9th Street across from the Gazebo. Looking back to 1908, Upland had a police station downtown that was manned by Sherriff Jed Sawyer. So, looking forward ,we saw a need to have the security of knowing our businesses and residents can feel safe and interface daily with the Upland Police. We need to have an environment in which this downtown can thrive. Looking forward to our Upland Police joining the businesses in Historic Downtown Upland August 2018!
