    Some important tips from the OC Sheriff:


    1. Leave some interior lighting on when leaving and locking up.  Crooks like to keep to the shadows, so having a lit environment both inside of the business and the around the exterior of the building is a deterrent.  It also helps law enforcement see inside and around the building while they patrol the area during the evening/night hours.
    2. When installing surveillance cameras on the exterior building, be sure that they cover the parking lot, the front and back entrance and exits of the building and driveways.  Ideally, cameras should have the ability to capture footage in low-light situations and with enough resolution to capture vehicle license plates.
    3. Interior surveillance cameras should cover entrance/exit doorways and areas where valuables are kept such as a safe or a cash register.  Ideally, the cameras should have the ability to capture footage in low-light situations and with a high enough resolution to make identification possible.
    4. Post signage/advertising that the area is protected with video surveillance.
    5. Surveillance DVRs should be able to hold at least a week or two of footage before it is rewritten.  This will give ample time to download the footage before it is rewritten. But, DVR's used onsite can be stolen, erased or destroyed so consider a cloud storage option. Further, cloud storage enables you to access your video from computers, tablets or smartphones no matter where you are as long as you have an active internet connection.

    CUSD Bond News: The Ladera Rancho Chamber of Commerce voted to oppose Measure M (CUSD Bond) on Wednesday. Our Board of Directors chose to stand with other elected officials, select chambers of commerce and the South Orange County Economic Coalition in opposition of this bond due to its negative impact on our local businesses here in Ladera Ranch. The South Orange County Economic Coalition reported that per the Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector, “Measure M would asses taxe...s on unsecured business property which would include office equipment, furniture, fixtures and other business improvements.” This increase in business taxes to our local businesses combined with the tax to the residents on secured and unsecured property removes a significant amount of money out of the local economy for the next 35 years. The Ladera Rancho Chamber of Commerce firmly supports our local schools however we have not seen evidence in the bond literature that indicates this large bond is necessary or provides a specific plan to benefit the community of Ladera Ranch.

    Please allow the Board to introduce Realtor Michelle Penaflor as our newest addition to the Board of Directors. Michelle became involved with the chamber only recently but she brings a lot to the table as far as energy and ideas. 

    Michelle was born and raised in the heart of Orange County growing up in the areas of Huntington Beach and Newport Beach before relocating to Las Flores here in South OC. After moving south, Michelle and her husband along with their 11 year old Jack Russell Terrier Abby relocated to Ladera Ranch in 2002. She also enjoys traveling, hockey and horse racing when she is not volunteering for organizations like Habitat for Humanity, ASPCA and the Elton John Aids Foundation.

    Her immediate focus with the chamber will be on event planning and networking - two areas that we are rapidly improving on.
