Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Friday, June 27, 9:38am -

The Community Pool will be re-opening at 1:00pm today following replacement of its pump and interior impeller.  The below shot is of Rich from Carrier installing the new pump late yesterday afternoon, which needed to be carefully lowered into place.

Some of you may have noticed the new canvas pool shade that was recently installed…now both picnic table areas have shade once again!  So enjoy the Pool this afternoon and this weekend…it’s going to be a sunny one in Brisbane.

When pool staff arrived this morning, they found that the pump wasn't working.  The pump is needed to warm the pool and keep chemicals mixed by pushing water into the filtration system and back out again.  Therefore, the Community Pool will be closed until the pump has been repaired.  This is estimated to take place either later today or early tomorrow.  The Pool will re-open once the water has been tested and the temperature brought back up to a comfortable operating level.  Thank you for your patience; an update will be sent out when the Pool is back open.

Tree Pruning on Visitacion

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Wednesday, June 11, 2:30pm - The contractors will be returning to prune the trees along the even-numbered side of the street the week of 6/23.  Expected dates where that side of Visitacion will be closed to parking are Monday, the 23rd and Tuesday, the 24th, 7:00am - 5:00pm.  Thanks again for your patience.

* * * * *

Every other year, the Raywood Ash trees that line Visitacion Ave. get pruned back.  In order for the contractors to effectively do so, the parking spaces need to be clear of vehicles.  Since the contractors will be starting on the odd-numbered side of the street (the side of The 23 Club) on Monday, June 9th, there will be NO PARKING from 7:00am - 5:00pm that day.  They will finish up the next day, Tuesday the 10th, on the opposite side of the street.  Thank you for your assistance as this work is being completed.  If you have any questions, you may call the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.

Weed Abatement Work

Printer-friendly version

The City's annual Vegetation/Weed Abatement Management Program of its public property begins Tuesday, May 20, 2014.  The contractor, Industrial Park Landscape, has worked in town since 1979 and is very knowledgeable of the areas known for excessive growth of vegetation/weeds, which become fire hazards in the dry months.  The contractor will begin work along the railroad spurs in Crocker Industrial Park tomorrow morning and by Friday start working on the fire trail located at the end of Trinity Rd.  After Memorial Day weekend, the contractors will work their way down to Kings, Humboldt, and San Mateo Lane.  Please note: the contractor is working intermittently in different parts of the city (not necessarily doing Central Brisbane on consecutive days), as access and time permits.  This program is being performed in compliance with North County Fire Authority regulations and will be completed by July 3rd.  If you have any questions, please contact Diane Cannon in the Public Works Department at (415) 508-2136 or dcannon@ci.brisbane.ca.us .

At their November 18th meeting, the City Council approved a recommendation by the Open Space & Ecology Committee for a two-year pilot program with Zipcar, Inc. for car-sharing services.  “Movie”, a silver Toyota Prius, will be stationed at the Police parking lot on Valley Dr. and “Ireland”, a red Honda Insight Hybrid, will be stationed at the Park & Ride Lot on Bayshore Blvd. at Tunnel Ave.  This program removes an obstacle faced by commuters who want to take public transit by providing fuel-efficient vehicles they can use for short trips during the day. The program also provides residents the opportunity to use alternative modes of transit, leave their cars at home, and/or even reduce the number of vehicles owned by providing a low-cost vehicle to use on an as-needed basis. 

Zipcar members sign up online, and receive access to the Zipcars using a keyless entry. Zipcars can be reserved by the hour or for up to several days, starting from $8.25/hour and $109/day for the pay-as-you-go plans or $7.43/hour or $98.10/day for the prepaid extra value plan. The reservation price includes gas, insurance, and up to 180 free miles per day. Members can reserve Zipcars online (www.zipcar.com), over the phone, or by using Zipcar’s mobile applications for both iPhone and Android, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

As an environmentally friendly transportation option, Zipcar will help to reduce Brisbane’s carbon footprint. National studies have shown that average vehicle miles traveled per driver is reduced by 40 percent when car owners switch to car sharing. Take advantage of this new service by signing up at www.zipcar.com and become a Zipster today!

Crocker Park TAP Report

Printer-friendly version
To assist in re-envisioning the future of the Crocker Business Park, the City of Brisbane, in partnership with the Urban Land institute, undertook a Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) earlier this year.  Through the TAP, a panel of independent land use, economic and design professionals visited and analyzed Crocker Park, interviewed community stakeholders and developed a series of observations and recommendations for the City Council's consideration.  
 
The Crocker Park TAP report has been finalized and can be found on the Crocker Industrial Park webpage.  The TAP report is not yet scheduled for City Council review.  Separate notification will be provided when the report is scheduled to come before the City Council.
