De Luz Community Services District

Road Maintenance, Supplemental Police Protection, and Refuse Collection

The De Luz Community Services District, formerly known as the Santa Rosa Community Services District, was established in November 1978 by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. It began operations in March 1979 under the provisions of the Community Services District Act (Section 61000 et. seq. of the California Government Code). Upon establishment, it was granted the power to perform three functions: road construction and maintenance, refuse collection, and extended police protection. The District's name was changed in 2007 to better identify with the surrounding area.

The District is comprised of approximately 20,000 acres in the Santa Rosa plateau, a mountainous area situated due west of the City of Temecula. The area is primarily agricultural in nature, with a majority of acres planted in avocados and citrus.

Safety tips

Every day, the U.S. Postal Service delivers millions of checks, money orders, credit cards and merchandise. Unfortunately, such items are attractive to thieves. Here are some tips on how to protect your mail from thieves:

· Don't let incoming or outgoing mail sit in your mailbox. You can significantly reduce the chance of being victimized by simply removing your mail from your mailbox every day.

· Promptly remove mail from your mailbox after delivery, especially if you're expecting checks, credit cards, or other negotiable items. If you won't be home when the items are expected, ask a trusted neighbor to pick up your mail.

· Just as you wouldn't leave the door to your home unlocked while you're away, you shouldn't let mail accumulate in your mailbox. Don't leave your mail unattended for extended periods. Have your post office hold your mail while you're away. You can do this online at

· When expecting a package delivery, track the shipment at You can sign up for the email and text alerts at

· If you don't receive a check or other valuable mail you're expecting, contact the issuing agency.

· If you change your address, immediately notify your post office and anyone with whom you do business via mail.

· Hand outgoing mail to your letter carrier, or mail it at the post office, an official USPS collection box on the street, or a secure receptacle at your place of business.

· Never send cash or coins in the mail. Use checks or money orders. Ask your bank for "secure" checks that are more difficult to alter.

· Consider starting a neighborhood watch program. By exchanging work and vacation schedules with trusted friends and neighbors, you can watch each other’s mailboxes (as well as homes).

"In the early days the place was known as Corral de Jose de Luz. (Don Juan) Forester's vaqueros told me there was a Spaniard or Californian by the name of Jose de Luz who kept stock in there at one time, and had built a corral there. I remember there was a few stubs of post of a corral near the adobe."
