Walker House Restoration Slide Show Now Available (Nov 21, 2007)

The City of San Dimas has added a slide show feature to its website that provides photos of the construction progress. You can see the show by selecting the Walker House Project Log ad on the left side of this page or by clicking below.

The Walker House Project Log also provides construction updates, photos and historical facts about the building.

The Walker House is located on San Dimas Avenue, just north of Bonita Avenue. It was built in the 1880's and was in need of repair. In an effort to extend the life of the life of the building and to preserve a local resource, the City purchased the building and is now in the process of a full and complete restoration.

CodeRED Emergency Notification System (Nov 19, 2007)


The City of San Dimas has contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. for its "CodeRED" high-speed telephone emergency notification service. The CodeRED system gives City Officials the ability to notify City residents by telephone about emergency situations or critical community alerts. The CodeRED system is capable of contacting specific targeted areas or the entire City at a rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour. The CodeRED system will only be used when situations arise that the community should be aware of (i.e. severe weather, wildfire, water main breaks, alerts concerning a missing child or adult, road closings, law enforcement emergencies and hazardous material spills).

How does CodeRED work?
CodeRED delivers the message through a high-speed telephone calling system to a phone number registered in the system. City staff will select a "call area" and the phone numbers will be matched up electronically to the addresses. A pre-recorded message will be sent out via the telephone with information about the situation and instructions. You will see the phone number 866-419-5000 appear on your caller ID. If you missed the call, you can call the number back to listen to the pre-recorded message.

How do I make sure that I am notified?
Initially, the City will use telephone company records to create its notification list. However, residents should not assume they are in the system. You should register online, particularly if you have moved or changed your phone number in the last year or if you prefer to be contacted on your cell or business phone.

Registration is also available by calling City Hall at 909-394-6218 during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will need to provide your first and last name, physical street address (no P.O. Boxes), city, state, zip code, primary phone number and alternate phone numbers.

Be Ready For The Storm Season (Feb 27, 2006)

The rainy season in Southern California is generally regarded as the period from October 15 to April 15 of the following year. As we all learned last winter, the rainy season in Southern California can be brutal on our region, particularly in San Dimas with its numerous hillside and wilderness areas. Last season produced record-breaking storms that led many residents of the community to question whether any of the flooding and mudslides they experienced at their homes was preventable. In some cases, flooding can be prevented through proper maintenance of drainage swales that cross multiple property lines.

In the event of flooding due to heavy rainfall that may be caused by a blockage of the City-maintained storm drainage system, call the Engineering Division at (909)394-6240, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm or e-mail us at If you are calling during non-business hours please call the Sheriff's Department at (909) 599-1261. Life-threatening flood emergencies should be reported by calling 9-1-1. Residents are further reminded that disposing of anything, other than rainwater, into the storm drain system is not only in violation of the San Dimas Municipal Code, but also the Federal Clean Water Act.

To provide you further information on how YOU can prepare for possible flooding of your property during winter storms, we have provided a link giving information on the proper installation of sandbags, as well as a link to locations from which sand and empty sandbags may be obtained from the City.
