NEW VENTURA NEIGHBORHOOD SURVEY ... The Ventura Neighborhood Association is inviting residents to take part in a new online North Ventura Developments Survey to gauge what residents want for the Fry's site. Even if people responded to a survey last spring, the issues have changed, association leaders said on their website. The association hopes to collect more quantitative data so residents can have a say in what happens at the site. The survey can be found at venturapaloalto.org. The association will also hold its monthly meeting on May 6 at 1:30 p.m., at the Ventura Community Center multipurpose room, 3990 Ventura Court, Palo Alto.
BROKEN TOASTERS ... If you've been finding broken items during spring cleaning that you just can't part with, here's a chance to make them useful again. The Repair Cafe is returning to the Museum of American Heritage on April 28 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., at 351 Homer Ave., Palo Alto. It's a good place to run into neighbors and have volunteers repair small appliances, bikes, simple sewing or jewelry mending projects — or learn how to do it yourself.
DISASTER PREPAREDNESS ... The Palo Alto Fire Department is available to come out to neighborhoods to help residents coordinate an emergency plan for when natural disasters occur. The Palo Alto Neighborhood Disaster Activities program teaches residents how to respond to neighbors and the community in the event that normal emergency responders might be overwhelmed. To arrange a training session, call 650-617-3197.
