Shuttle Stop Relocation

Printer-friendly version

As part of the Safe Pedestrian Routes to School Plan created by the Complete Streets Safety Committee and approved by the City Council at their December 18, 2014 Council meeting, the Commute.org shuttle stop that was at the intersection of San Bruno & Santa Clara will be moved down the block to San Bruno to Alvarado.  This is to aid in reducing traffic congestion at the school during morning drop-offs, as the shuttle stop is in the midst of this area and school crossings at the crosswalk.  Thank you to the Committee for their work on this idea to relocate the shuttle stop and helping improve traffic for everyone's morning commute!  And lastly, if live or work in town and don't have a shuttle pass yet, then stop by the Finance Counter in City Hall and sign up for one!  It's free and a great alternative to getting in your car!

Gazebo To Get a Facelift

Printer-friendly version

Did you notice the Gazebo being washed on Thursday morning?  It now needs to dry a few more days before painting and staining can occur.  That should take about 3-4 days to complete once the contractor starts next week.  This work was approved by the City Council as part of their 2014-15 Budget and will serve to further enhance the Community Park.  Did you know that the Gazebo can be rented for private parties or community gatherings?  If you're interested in learning more, contact Tricia Vaccaro in the Parks and Recreation Department at 508-2140 and she will be happy to assist you!

HVAC Replacement at Sta. 81

Printer-friendly version

 

If you happened to drive past the Fire Station this past Monday, you may have noticed a huge orange crane lifting and lowering three new HVAC units that were then installed over the course of the next few days.  Replacement of these HVAC units were approved by the City Council as part of their 14-15 Budget and meet new Title 24 Standards for increased building efficiency that went into effect statewide on July 1, 2014.  Lighting upgrades at the Fire Station took place back in July, so all capital improvement work at the Fire Station for FY 14-15 has now been completed.

Composting Has Arrived!

Printer-friendly version

Starting this month, Brisbane residents can put items like fruit and vegetable peels, leftovers, napkins and pizza boxes into the green cart, along with yard trimmings.  Now offering weekly green cart collection, South San Francisco Scavenger Company will convert the materials into transportation fuel and compost at their new anaerobic digestion facility.

Over the next two weeks, each household will receive a food scrap pail and detailed information about the new program, on their regular collection day.  

To ensure that the anaerobic digestion process produces high quality fuel and compost, only food, food soiled paper and yard trimmings should go into the green cart.  Contaminants such as plastics, including plastic bags and “bio bags,” glass, metal or any other non-compostable materials interfere with the process and must be kept out of the green cart.  The food scrap collection allows residents to recycle a wide range of materials, including some that can’t be readily composted in backyard compost bins, such as meat, bones, paper plates and milk cartons.

Thanks for helping to do your part!

2024 Olympics at the Baylands?

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Thursday, January 8, 2015, 4pm - Boston was chosen by the U.S. Olympic Committee today over San Francisco as the candidate city for the 2024 Olympics.

You may have seen a recent article about the Summer 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games.  There is a group called the San Francisco 2024 Exploratory Committee who are working on a potential bid for both these games.   A proposal, if there is one, will have San Francisco as the lead city.

The exploratory committee is currently evaluating a variety of sites throughout the Bay Area for venues for various events and sports competitions.  One of the ideas they are exploring is placing a temporary “pop up” Olympic Stadium that would be used for opening and closing events as we well as the Track & Field competition on the Brisbane Baylands.  The stadium would be torn down and its materials repurposed after the Games have ended.  The organizing committee has approached the property owner as well as the City in very preliminary and exploratory discussions.

The Bay Area is one of four sites in the United States that are currently evaluating whether they wish to bid for the 2024 games.  The other three are Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Boston.  Sometime towards the end of the year the City of San Francisco and San Francisco 2024 will determine if they want to compete for the United States bid.  If so they will submit a formal proposal, which will include potential sites for various venues.   

In early 2015 the United States Olympic Committee will determine whether they want to submit a bid that would be subject to international competition.  If so they will choose amongst the American cities that submit proposals.  In 2017 the International Olympic Committee will select and announce the host city for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

As you can see from this schedule, that discussion of Brisbane as a potential site for venues for the 2024 games is in its early stages.  Any actual proposal would require environmental review as well as a City Council approved land-use permit.

Check in as the process continues as we will be updating the community on the status of decision making.
