Printer-friendly version

Join the Brisbane Lions Club and the City for 3 special events in the heart of our downtown on Saturday, October 24!

The Lions will be holding their annual Flu Shot Clinic (free!) at the Senior Sunrise Room (2 Visitacion Ave.) from 9am - 12pm and their much-anticipated Pumpkin Patch under the Gazebo in the Community Park from 9am - 2pm (donations accepted).

Old County Rd. will be closed to traffic from the Brisbane Village Shopping Center (the businesses will remain accessible) to the Skatepark (Park Ln.) from 8am - 1pm for the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop, taking place from 10am - 12:30pm. The consultants want to stripe the roadway in different scenarios to give the public a more experiential take on how the entryway to town could look differently.  So, bring you own bike to ride (or walk) the various scenarios.  There will also be food (catered by Melissa's), live music, activities for kids (Storytime with Francisco from the Brisbane Library is from 10-10:30am and Capt. Jack Spareribs performs at 11a), face painting, pumpkin-decorating with stickers, and the antique fire truck will be out for tots (and adults) to take pictures with.  The workshop will take place from 10am - 12:30pm so be sure to get your flu shot, pick up your pumpkin, and provide your feedback at the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop!

Baylands Survey Results

The Baylands survey consultants received 580 responses to the Baylands Survey, which ran from August 31 - September 12.  The Baylands survey results/raw data are now available for review.  The City Council will receive a presentation from the City’s survey consultants regarding these results on Tuesday, October 27th at 7:30pm in the Community Meeting Room, City Hall (50 Park Place, Brisbane).  This was a mail-in survey sent to all registered voters in Brisbane to gauge community opinions and attitudes on a number of issues pertaining to the Baylands and are an important factor in the City’s decision-making process for the Baylands.  Thank you to all who participated in it!

PG&E Night Work Update

Printer-friendly version

We first mentioned PG&E's night work taking place on Bayshore @ Valley on October 2nd.  The purpose of this 28-day project was for PG&E to determine if improvements were needed on a segment of their gas pipeline.  The City felt that more robust public outreach needed to be done prior to the work continuing, and thus required all work to cease until such was completed.  PG&E has since mailed out letters to the area in town (they should be arriving in mailboxes 10/13) most affected by the noise and a phone call is also being scheduled for tonight, indicating that work will be resuming on Tuesday, October 13th.  Going forward, work will be taking place Sundays - Thursdays, from 9pm - 5am, only. 

Only 1 to 2 nights of noise is expected, followed by a period of quiet as PG&E assesses their pipeline.  The construction work will affect the northbound traffic on Bayshore Blvd., with one lane of traffic maintained throughout the construction duration.  Please use caution when driving through the construction area.  For any questions about the project, please contact local PG&E representative Francisco Ybarra at (650) 730-7057.  Your patience and cooperation while the remainder of this project is completed is greatly appreciated.

Parkside Precise Plan Update

Parkside Precise Plan: October 24 Workshop and Day in the Park Recap

We had a great time talking with Brisbane community members at the Day in the Park festival on Saturday, October 3rd about the Parkside at Brisbane Village Precise Plan! We’re going to continue the conversation about the future of the Parkside Area at an upcoming Pop-Up Workshop on Saturday, October 24. Join us for music, food, planning activities and games from 10am - 12:30pm at the intersection of Old County Road and Park Lane. (Note: Old County Road will be closed from 8am - 1pm between the Brisbane Village Shopping Center entrance and Park Lane. Police will be standing by to route local traffic.)

After you’ve shared your ideas at the October 24 workshop, don’t forget to stop by the Brisbane Lions’ Pumpkin Patch that same day in the Community Park (9am - 2pm) and the Flu Shot Clinic at the Senior Sunrise Room (9am - noon).

Day in the Park

Thank you to all those who stopped by the Planning Department booth at Day in the Park to tell us what they love about Brisbane, share their thoughts on the planning process, and take home some buttons! Here’s a small sample of what we heard from a few of the individuals we spoke to:

  • The community values the close-knit feel of Brisbane, its walkability, and its family-friendliness
  • Some people would like to see a market and pharmacy in town
  • Housing is expensive and in short supply - more would be good
  • Some people don’t want anything to change
  • Some people are excited to see change and growth in Brisbane
  • Bike and pedestrian access and safety can be improved
  • The mountain, pool, skate park, park, and playground are beloved by the community

We heard a lot of concern that 4 - 5 story buildings may have been proposed in the plan area. While the city is obligated to allow for future housing development at some sites in the Parkside area per our adopted Housing Element, the physical form of future development will be determined by the community through the Parkside Precise Plan visioning process. We are at the beginning stage of that visioning process and no buildings have been designed. The city looks forward to further discussions with the community regarding development form and scale and what is appropriate for this area of Brisbane!
