In Kensington, we're dealing with a new neighbor who's installed multiple video surveillance cameras, including one pointed at our bedroom window. The red light flashes 24/7. She also has bright lights along her walkway and her front door. The front door light floods our bedroom, which is beginning to feel like a movie set.

Before doing anything drastic or offensive, please contact them personally to see what can be done to a mutually satisfactory result. We had a motion sensor light that turned out to affect a neighbor on the next block, and they very kindly presented the problem to us in a way that made us want to fix it. (Unlike a neighbor directly across the street who presented a very minor item with banging on our door and huffing in a most disagreeable way)

I believe Donh Casi's pictures of the smoke from the Chevron fire give a false impression. I could see the fire and smoke from my front porch. The smoke didn't come toward El Cerrito at all. The wind blew it over Richmond and San Pablo. A friend who lives in Carriage Hills in El Sobrante told me the smoke went directly over his house. The pictures give the impression that El Cerrito was immersed in a toxic cloud, but I never saw or smelled any smoke here.

El Cerrito and other cities have a light ordinance to prevent this kind of thing (intrusive lighting over fences and onto street). I suspect Kensington has the same. Check with the city planning dept. And ask your neighbor change the lights to turn on only with heat/motion.
