The Town Center is now ready for review/approval (hearing) by the San Joaquin County Planning Commission. The hearing date is October 5, 2017 at 6:30 in Stockton, CA. What it means is that after approval by the Planning Commission, the next step will be the approval by the County Board of Supervisors and will present it to the people of Mountain House the drawings for approval. Then will schedule the ground breaking which is estimated in the late 2018. ... more

Tracy is below the national average crime rate. Its still has a vibrant small town feel that folks like. With no pot growing. There are many religions represented here and every one I've met is friendly. We use a sign for alarm in home as do our neighbors. The majority of 90,000 people mostly own the 13000 houses here.
There aren'y many bars here or even a red light district I've sene in 8 years of owning a home here. Stop and hang around the places your interested in on some weekend evening. Or talk to locals at the donut shops and cafes in town some morning and ask around what it's like . This is a bedroom community, literaly, quiet and low to crime free in Westgate subdivision. No big dogs barking around here.

Stockton is just like every other city that has areas that are affected by crime. However, that is the exception and not the rule. There are sooo many great areas that people are unaware of, and unfortunately Stockton overall gets a bad rap because of the smaller crime ridden areas. Just like with any other cities, if you want to avoid crime, stay away from high crime area. I am originally from San Jose, and I was a victim of break-ins and robberies there. This is something that can happen anywhere. People shouldn't be so quick to judge the entire city. Find a great Realtor who can introduce you to some of the hidden gems that Stockton has to offer ... more

Rocky G.H. Hawrysz answered:
Tax rates differ even within the same City or County. It is very important if you want to understand the projected property tax on a home, that you consider the following:

1) Obtain the current taxes from a good source like the County, Realtor or Title Company.

2) Cross-reference the street address and APN# to confirm you have the correct home.

3) Understand that taxes are based initially on the sales price. If the home last sold in 1960, the taxes will correspond to the sales price and will change once purchased.

4) When obtaining tax information, understand that you still have to calculate the taxes based on the new sales price of the home.

5) Understand that taxes can be different even if the home is across the street or next door.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Donald Maloney answered:
Funny reading that the commission would be based on the gross sale not considering credits.
Actually the commission should be based on the NET sales price. It is unconscionable to collect a commission on the "credit" since the seller is not getting that money and therefore should not be obligated to pay a commission on monies not received. ... more

There is no station that connects ACE with Bart. Your best bet is to take the ACE Train to Pleasanton and use the Wheels 54 Bus to go to the Dublin/Pleasanton Bart station.

I've been seeing an inordinate amount of these questions popping up on Trulia in recent weeks. As I've said on the other threads I've commented on there's absolutely no way of guaranteeing that any neighborhood will have little or especially NO CRIME.

We're living in a very different time and place today. Unlike anytime since possibly the Great Depression we are living in very volatile socio economic times everywhere in America as well as most places in the World.

What with dynamics like poverty, homelessness, unemployment, illegal immigration and shear desperation it's clearly obvious why crime is on the rise everywhere. What were once considered very safe and secure upscale neighborhoods are now viable high value targets for those who wish to prey on them.

I've livee in a very laid back, low key semi rural North San Diego country neighborhood for the past 33 years. During that time we've never locked the doors on our cars or homes and we've always left our bicycles out unlocked.

In the past several months we've had an influx of multi-family or multi-tenant renters moving into several of the single family residents that have come up for rent throughout our neighborhood. Sometimes there are as many as a dozen old cars and trucks parked in the driveways and on the streets.

Common sense has to tell you that these folks aren't the most financially privileged or steadily employeed. Hence, lot's of folks are hungry and desperate to pay the rent so voila our once very safe and quiet neighborhoods become not so safe and secure.

As a result we've seen a dramatic increase in break-ins and burglaries. Fortunetley there has been no violent crime. Just folks stealing bicycles, lawn mowers & myriad garden tools or anything of value that's not secured. We even have a neighbor who's had 4 chickens stolen in the past month. Duh........ya think they might be hungry?

So we took measures into our own hands and with the help of local law enforcement we've facilitated a NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH PROGRAM. Since the signs have gone up and we've installed or activated existing security systems and video cameras and our buddies at the Sheriff's Dept have been making their presence known and we've all been keeping in touch with one another and notifying one another when we'll be out of town things have really calmed down. In fact there have been no incidents in the past couple of months.

So the long and short of it is that there is no totally safe and secure way of keeping your neighborhood free of crime. The best thing you can do is become involved in your community and stay aware of the folks who live around you.
