The Skatepark project will be discussed at next Thursday's City Council meeting of October 16, 2014. The staff report outlines how the Facilities Subcommittee will be making the recommendation to the full Council for the skatepark to remain at its current site across from the Community Park and next to the basketball courts. Should the Council concur with the Subcommittee's recommendation, the consultant Spohn Ranch will continue to work with the stakeholders and move forward with development of a conceptual design. They have recently set up a Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/brisbaneskatepark/) to keep the community apprised of the latest project developments.
If you would like to support the Skatepark Project, Brisbane resident Michael Barnes and users of the skatepark are selling silk-screened Brisbane tee-shirts for $15. So far, their efforts have raised $2,600. They will be at the Sunday Farmers' Market from 9am - 1pm if you'd like to pick one up. For any questions or custom orders, please contact Michael at email@example.com .

At the September 18th City Council meeting, the idea of having the Community submit their ideas regarding economic development via social media was discussed. It was decided that there would be two platforms that citizens would be able to do so on - Uservoice and Facebook. The Uservoice forum can be accessed by simply clicking the Uservoice button below or on the red feedback tab on website, and the Facebook forum can be accessed by clicking the Facebook button below or at the top of the City's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/brisbane94005). The ideas will be culled together for the City Council's Economic Development Workshop, taking place on Monday, November 3rd. Your ideas concerning Downtown Brisbane, Crocker Park and the Village, and Sierra Point are greatly welcomed. On Uservoice, you will have 10 "votes" to use, with 3 being the maximum number of votes you can assign to any one idea. If you would like to submit a photo that characterizes what you would like to see in town, please either submit that via the Facebook page or e-mail it to Caroline Cheung at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you in advance for your participation and feedback!

The City was notified yesterday that PG&E detected two anomalies (pipe dents and metal loss) in their 30” diameter gas transmission line in San Bruno Mountain State and County Park within their easement. They considered this repair an emergency, and thus proceeded with starting the repair work immediately. Prior to doing so, they obtained an Encroachment Permit from the County of San Mateo Parks Department, had a Biological Assessment, including Revegetation Recommendations (prepared by Garcia and Associates Natural and Cultural Resources Associates), and prepared and received approval of their San Bruno Mountain Habitat Conservation Plan Site Activity Review Application for the work.
Their work is on a north slope of the park, adjacent to and east of the PG&E electrical transmission towers and west of the quarry. They are clearing an area within their easement and will walk an excavator up the cleared area to the two excavation locations, the higher being approximately 850’ up the hillside, in order to dig and repair the line. They expect the work to take seven to 10 days, not including restoration activities.
While we would have preferred more notice to have been able to provide this information to residents and interested parties in advance, we recognize, as the San Mateo County Parks Department also did, that this was an urgent matter and the repair work needed to start immediately. If you have any questions about this work, please contact the Public Works Department at 508-2130.
September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), and the theme for this year is: "Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare". There are also weekly themes, so each week we'll be sharing tips and information concerning the following on our Facebook and Twitter pages (be sure to Like and Follow us):
Week 1 - How to Reconnect with Family After a Disaster
Week 2 - How to Plan for Specific Needs Before a Disaster (youth and children, business, organizations, those with disabilities, pets, etc.)
Week 3 - How to Build An Emergency Kit
Week 4 & 5 - How to Practice for an Emergency
For more details about National Preparedness Month please visit: www.ready.gov/september or @Readygov on Twitter. And if you haven't already signed up to receive text alerts during an emergency from the City, please do so today at SMCAlert.info. The Director of Emergency Services, Randy Breault, will also be providing the City Council with a presentation about National Preparedness Month at the September 2, 2014 Council Meeting. Last weekend's earthquake in Napa makes this all the more timely, as we clearly saw it is not a matter of "if", it is a matter of "when" a disaster will strike!
In addition to Brisbane's lighted stars that grace San Bruno Mountain during the holidays, Brisbane has another acclaimed attraction - the painted fire hydrants that have greeted passer-bys on city streets since 1976. Brisbane Women's Club members, Vicki Hobson, who recommended the idea, and Jeanne Berman-Hosking, who spearheaded the project, envisioned painting hydrants as historical figures to commemorate our nation's bicentennial. There were some more whimisical designs, such as the Clown (pictured left), in addition to Uncle Sam and Martha Washington!
Please join the Parks and Recreation Department as we continue our tradition of painting Brisbane’s fire hydrants on Saturday, October 11th and Sunday, October 12th from 9am -12pm. Check-in will be held at the Brisbane Community Park (11 Old County Rd., Brisbane) and the Brisbane Lions Club has generously donated all supplies in memory of Will Cornyn. To review a list of hydrants and for more information regarding Fire Hydrant Painting & Restoration Weekend, please click here. To register in advance, please email Parks & Recreation Commissioner Madison Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org .
On 9/19/2014 at approx. 3:30 pm, two subjects contacted a resident claiming to be PG&E workers. The subjects told the resident that they needed to show the resident something outside her home that needed to be fixed. While one of the subjects distracted the resident, the other subject went into the home and took miscellaneous jewelry from the victim’s bedroom. When the victim saw that one of the subjects had entered her home she told them both to leave not knowing at the time she had been victimized. The victim did not see if they arrived or left in a vehicle. Further investigation revealed that suspects arrived in a white 90's model Cadillac. These appear to be the same subjects that have committed similar crimes in Daly City. We are working with Daly City Police to try to identify the suspects.
They are described as:
Age- Early 40s
Hair- Short black hair
Clothing- Suede hat, khaki shorts, and light blue button up shirt
Age- Early 40s
Height- 6'1'' to 6'2"
Hair- Dark hair
Clothing- Blue windbreaker with yellow and red marks
Do not open your door to anyone you cannot identify and/or who states they are there to perform a service to your home that you have not ordered.
If you cannot identify who is there, please contact the Brisbane Police Department and we will respond immediately to check their identity and credentials.
And remember, if you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood, phone the Brisbane Police Department immediately at 467-1212.
