To help make your move to living in Redlands as smooth as possible, we compiled the ultimate list of resident resources.

You might call us biased, but we love living in Redlands. Our charming, beautiful town offers a wealth of community events, great places to eat, good schools, and more. But we know that sometimes finding the right resources, especially right after you move, can be tough. The following is a comprehensive list of places to help you get acclimated. 

Something you need not on this list? Please let us know. We’d love to connect you with the right resource!

And don't forget, here on AboutRedlands, you can browse upcoming events or join our email list to get our monthly roundup of what's happening in our community.

Alarm Systems

Does the Police Department recommend installing an alarm system in a home?

Yes, but make sure once you install an alarm system that you follow the proper guidelines to prevent false alarms from happening. Currently there is a city ordinance that states after three false alarms within a 12-month period, the resident or business owner will be billed $126 per false alarm.

  • License your dogs: If you reside inside the City limits and own a dog, you must secure a City dog license for your pet. Your dog is required by law to be licensed by four (4) months of age. You must obtain a State approved rabies vaccination for your dog that must be administered by a licensed veterinarian. The vet will provide you with a rabies certificate. This certificate must be presented to the City Treasurer’s office as proof of vaccination when you purchase your dog’s license. The City Treasurer’s Office is located at 35 Cajon St., Suite 15B, and can be reached by calling 798-7544. This first vaccination will be good for a 12-month period. The license will also be good for one year. When the dog is re-vaccinated, the vaccine will protect your pet for a three-year period but a City license must be purchased yearly. The license fee for a one year period is $23. If your pet has been surgically altered (spayed or neutered) your license fee will be $16. You must show proof of this surgery with a certificate of sterilization. Your rabies vaccination protects your pet against the deadly rabies virus. The State of California is still considered a rabies state. The City of Redlands has had ten (10) bats test positive in a three-year period. This is reason enough to abide by vaccination laws. Your City license assists in providing proof of vaccination and is a great way for shelter staff to identify your animal should your dog be impounded. Shelter staff will be able to trace the license number directly to you and will be able to notify you immediately that your dog has been picked up. You then can be reunited with your animal quickly.
