August 17 Baylands Meeting Postponed

Printer-friendly version

In the August STAR newsletter, which went to print in late July, a Baylands Deliberations Schedule was included, listing out August meeting dates of August 7 (Meeting #3), August 17 (Meeting #4), and August 31 (Meeting #5).  Just prior to the August 7th meeting, our Sacramento-based law firm informed us that legislative negotiators had reportedly reached a tentative agreement on a package of bills impacting local government land use decisions.  City staff is working with the Sacramento law firm and is ready to analyze the legislative package as to its potential relevance to the City and will report that back to the Council, who wishes to receive that analysis before continuing its discussions and deliberations on any particular land use plan for the Baylands.

Therefore, the August 17th meeting has been postponed until more clarification and understanding of the State legislative package is made public and analyzed by staff.  Stay tuned for more information; sign up for weekly website updates from the City to be informed when the next Baylands deliberations meetings are scheduled or follow us on social media – Facebook (www.facebook.com/brisbane94005), Twitter (www.twitter.com/brisbaneca), and Instagram (www.instagram.com/cityofbrisbaneca).

SunShares - Simple. Affordable. Together.

Printer-friendly version

The City will be once again this year supporting the collaborative solar and zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) education and discount "SunShares" program, administered by the Business Council on Climate Change (BC3).  The City believes the program will help to continue to overcome soft-cost barriers impeding broad market transformation of residential rooftop solar and ZEVs by enabling homeowners to voluntarily participate in a group education and discount program.  Participating as a partner city also helps us meet the goals and measures found in our adopted Climate Action Plan.

The RFP (Request for Proposals) Committee has selected PetersenDean, Skytech Solar, and Solar Technologies as 2017 solar vendors.  They are excited to report that prices are starting about 17% below last year at a 15-25% discount off market rates.  Vehicle vendors will be announced as they become available in the coming week.

The website, www.bayareasunshares.org, will go live with a solar only registration (plus check boxes for interest in EVs and EV charging) on August 7th.  So be sure to sign up then!  The program will only run until the end of 2017.

High School Bus Information

Printer-friendly version

The City of Brisbane and the Jefferson Union High School District (Terra Nova and Oceana) have collaborated to provide transportation for students that live in town.  The first day of school for the District is Thursday, August 10th.  The bus will be picking up students at the same location and time as previous years - 7:00am at 50 Park Place, Brisbane.  As described in the District's letter to parents, transportation will be free for the first two weeks of school.  During that time, the District will compile a list of bus riders and collect the fees.  Fees will be due by August 26, 2017 and the District will issue a bus pass to your student upon payment.  A signed 2017-18 application form accepting the bus conduct rules must also be returned to the JUHSD (Terra Nova or Oceana) by the same date.  If you have any questions, please contact the JUHSD at (650) 550-7580.

Ord. 617 RE: Cannabis

Printer-friendly version

At last night's City Council meeting, the City Council voted 4-1 to introduce Ord. 617 as amended to allow cannabis-related businesses in some commercial districts in Brisbane.  These businesses include laboratory testing, warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, and delivery-only retail (walk-up retail establishments not allowed).  A Conditional Use Permit will be required for cannabis-related warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, and deliver-only retail, so the City can understand how the business works before a permit is issued.  Testing laboratories may require a Conditional Use Permit as well, depending on the districit they're located in within the city.

The Ordinance also establishes performance standards for the personal cultivation of medicinal and adult-use ("recreational") cannabis for personal consumption by eligible patients or adults 21 years or older on residential properties, consistent with State law requirements. No commercial cultivation of cannabis will be allowed in Brisbane.

The second reading of the ordinance is scheduled for the Council's September 7th meeting, with the ordinance taking effect in October (30 days after adoption). Businesses must wait until the ordinance is in effect to apply for a Conditional Use Permit.

Questions?  Contact the Community Development Department at (415) 508-2120 or email planning@ci.brisbane.ca.us.

Website Maintenance

Printer-friendly version

We want to apologize for the website being offline last weekend for one day and 14 hours.  We regularly add new pages to the website and during a period of re-indexing itself, the website went into maintenance mode and switched itself to "offline".  The City's current website is over 2,700 pages large, so city staff is in the process of removing older content such as a Day in the Park post from 2013 in order to take some load off of the website.  We are also improving the Search settings within the website and have added the ability to use Google's search mechanism if desired.  See below image:

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and disruption for the City’s website being offline for a period of time last weekend.  We feel confident that the actions made over the weekend to bring the site back, plus on-going efforts to “de-clutter” the site will all help to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.

New Planning Commission Mtg Schedule

Printer-friendly version

We wanted to make sure you were aware of the Planning Commissions July meeting schedule as well as the fact that beginning August 1st, the Planning Commission will begin having its regular meetings take place on the 2nd and 4th TUESDAY of each month (rather than Thursdays) at 7:30pm in the Community Meeting Room at City Hall (50 Park Place, Brisbane).  The All Meetings page has been updated to reflect their future meetings through the end of the calendar year.

4th of July

Printer-friendly version

July and the Independence Day holiday are upon us - a time of fun, fireworks, and festivals. We hope you have a wonderful Independence Day on Tuesday!  In order to keep you, your family, pets, and neighbors safe, please consider the following tips as you put the finishing touches on your celebration:

Fireworks Safety: Per BMC, Section 15.44.090 - Fireworks are Prohibited in Brisbane.

Pet Safety: More pets get lost on July 4th than any other day of the year. Exercise your furry friends before the festivities and keep them inside as much as possible. If you need to take them out, ensure they have a tag with your contact information.  Lastly, common Fourth of July items such as alcoholic beverages, citronella candles, and glow sticks can be toxic to pets and should be stowed out of their reach.
 
Grilling Safety: Keep the grill out in the open and far away from anything that could catch fire: the house, deck, tree branches. Be sure to use long-handled tools especially made for grilling to keep the chef safe. Make sure children and pets stay far away from the grill, and always supervise the grill when in use.
 
Please note:  The Brisbane Community Pool will observe modified hours on Tuesday, July 4th.  The hours for lap swim and recreational swim are noted below.  Come and celebrate the 4th of July at the pool with us!

Lastly, please note: City Hall will be closed for Independence Day, with offices re-opening on July 5th for regular Wednesday business hours of 8am - 8pm.  Have a safe and celebratory 4th!
