250 Visitacion Ave.
Saturday, July 12th | 8:00am - 4:00pm
Last year was the first year that Brisbane resident Tony Lukezic organized a car show for the community in downtown Brisbane. In its inaugural year, it was successfully attended by nearly 500 spectators over the course of the day. This year, he’s expecting an even greater turnout of cars, so the first two blocks of the odd-numbered side of Visitacion Ave. (side of The 23 Club), the parking lot on the corner of Mariposa & Visitacion, and 13 spots inside the Post Office parking lot will all be reserved, in addition to the two blocks along San Francisco Ave. besides the Community Park up to Mariposa St. where cars were parked last year (see photo). Half of the car show’s proceeds will go towards the Brisbane School District and the other half will go towards the City’s Skatepark Donations Fund. New this year, Tony is adding two jumpy houses which will be set up in the Park, so make it a family day and enjoy your time at the car show!
The public is invited to attend the Bay Area "IMAGINING" event, being held on Sunday, July 13th in the Community Center (250 Visitacion Ave., Brisbane) from 2pm - 5pm. All participants are citizen journalists in this event, with a three-hour press deadline to create a journal filled with headlines, articles, and collaged pages that envison and describe our communities twenty years from now with art and culture at the core of all initiatives. If you have a working typewriter (manual or electric), please bring it. Please bring non-toxic markers, glue sticks, magazines to cut up and scissors. If you would like to bring cookies, healthy snacks or non-alcoholic drinks to share, it would be most welcomed.
Space is limited, so please RSVP to Brisbane resident and San Francisco Bay Area Imagining Cultural Agent, Beth Grossman, at firstname.lastname@example.org For more information, give Beth an e-mail or a call at (415) 467-1836.
This IMAGINING is meant to catalyze community action and connection as well as contribute to the larger vision for the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture. Taken together, the 17 unique “Imaginings” from this pilot phase will source ideas, images, and stories that will inform the USDAC’s policy platform and next steps.
About the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture
Launched on October 5th, 2013, in the midst of the government shutdown, the USDAC has no federal line item, office in Washington D.C., or official governmental status. Rather, the USDAC is the new people-powered department dedicated to cultivating the empathy and imagination we need to create the world we wish to inhabit. Radically inclusive, useful and sustainable, and vibrantly playful, the USDAC aims to harness the power of art and culture to engage millions in envisioning and creating a more just and sustainable world. It does this by sparking local initiatives, connecting people and ideas across sites, and sourcing, articulating, and activating visions for new national-scale policies and programs. For more about the USDAC contact Norman Beckett, Deputy Secretary: email@example.com

The below film is a 'sequel' to Keith's other short film, 'Fire on San Bruno Mountain' and depicts the aftermath of the great San Bruno Mountain fire of June 2008. It premiered at San Bruno Mountain Watch's 'Fire Fest', which was held on June 22, 2014 at Mission Blue Center in Brisbane, California, commemorating the 6th anniversary of the fire.
With the early dry fire season, it's even more important that everyone in town refrains from setting off fireworks. ALL FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL IN BRISBANE, even "safe and sane" fireworks. If you hear any fireworks being set off, contact Brisbane Police immediately by calling 508-1212. Thank you for your assistance, and we wish you the safest and happiest of holidays.

Continuing our overview of City Council Accomplishments in 2013-2014, we will now focus on the City's purchase of land for Open Space in the Brisbane Acres.
At its February 4, 2013 meeting, the City Council met in closed session to discuss the possible acquisition of Brisbane Acres Lot 98. The owner had contacted the City the year prior to see if the City was interested in purchasing the property, an unimproved parcel approximately one acre in size. As shown in the below map (click to enlarge), Lot 98 is within the Priority Preservation Area identified in the Open Space Plan, and indicated by the yellow border lines.
During the closed session, staff was authorized to begin negotiations with the property owner on price and terms of a purchase. The owner agreed to sell the property for $78,750, which is comparable to prices paid by the City for similar parcels in that area and was within the price parameters authorized by the Council.
The City Attorney then prepared a purchase agreement, which was signed by the City Manager and sent to the seller. The purchase offer was signed and accepted by the owner and returned to the City in late February. At their meeting of March 18, 2013, the City Council approved Resolution No. 2013-06, which ratified the purchase agreement. With escrow closing in November 2013, the City had just purchased its latest Open Space parcel, preserving an additional acre of open space and endangered species habitat in the Brisbane Acres! Actions such as these truly affirm the City Council's desire and willingness to preserve critial open space lands in the hopes that future generations can one day enjoy them as well.
