Printer-friendly version

National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

Every year, the city recognizes the efforts of the individuals whose work is deemed successful when no one notices it.  That's right, the Public Works Dept. knows it is serving the community well when we forget that it actually takes someone's time and effort to ensure that our water, sewer and storm drain systems are properly functioning, that our roadways are safe and driveable, and that our streetlights are illuiminating as they should, just to name a few things the Public Works Dept. oversees.  Public Works Director Randy Breault now has oversight of the Marina as well, so employees from both departments were present at Monday's Council meeting to receive a Proclamation from the City Council.  Thank you to each of you, who quietly and daily live out the theme of National Public Works Week 2014, "Building for Today, Planning for Tomorrow".

Bayshore Road Work

Printer-friendly version

You may have noticed road work being performed on Bayshore and heard thermoplastic striping being ground as you drove by.  This work is being done in preparation for slurry sealing that will take place on several streets in Brisbane between May 14 – 16 as part of the 2013 Pavement Maintenance Project which the Council approved last Fall.  The area on Bayshore Blvd. just south of Old County Rd. to Guadalupe Canyon Parkway will be worked on for the remainder of the week, so please use caution when driving through this area and be aware of lane closures and work crews.  More detailed information including other affected streets will be posted to the city’s website on Friday, May 9th.  Thank you for your patience as the city completes these important roadway improvements!   

New Art Exhibit at City Hall

Printer-friendly version

Brisbane resident Dan Ryan's photography work that will be exhibited at City Hall during May and June was put up yesterday in the large conference room.  Come and check out the images he has captured, which are excerpts from a project he began in 2012 called "Tokyo Panic Stories", a forthcoming book of 'literary-photojournalism' containing photographs, straightforward reporting, fictional narrative, and poetry.  An artist reception will take place at City Hall on Wednesday, May 21 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.  All are welcome!

Be Ready

Printer-friendly version

With the Bay Area's anomalously warm, dry winter, the work that North County Fire Authority (NCFA) is doing in Brisbane becomes ever more important.  Earlier this week, NCFA in coordination with CAL FIRE, had fire hand crews reducing weeds and brush along an approximately 100-ft. deep strip behind homes from the end of Trinity Rd. to just beyond the intersection of Kings and San Mateo Ln.  This vegetation reduction fuel break was established several years ago and constructed with the intent to reduce the potential for the rapid spread of fire.  The June 22, 2008 brush fire in Owl and Buckeye Canyons of San Bruno Mountain that resulted in a total of 30 fire companies from all over the Peninsula arriving to fight the blaze and 102 residences being evacuated, is still often recounted by the city and its residents.

On that note, please remember to get signed up for SMC Alerts if you haven't already done so.  This is the platform the city's Office of Emergency Services will use in the event of a disaster or an emergency. 

The city has also joined the County of San Mateo in becoming a Weather-Ready Ambassador, partnering with the National Weather Service and National Atmospheric Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) personnel on potential collaboration opportunities.  Such may be the case when NCFA conducts their annual Wildland Fire Awareness event in early June.  Details to come.  In the meantime, you can get up-to-the-minute weather updates by following the Bay Area's National Weather Service on Twitter (@NWSBAYAREA).

Lyme Disease Safety

Printer-friendly version

As the weather warms and more people are hiking on San Bruno Mountain, we wanted to provide you with information on Lyme disease so you can learn how to prevent it and if needed, recognize the symptoms to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment.  Lyme disease is transmitted by the western black-legged tick and the brochure Lyme Disease in California, published by the State's Department of Public Health Vector-Borne Disease Section, provides a good overview of the disease and should be referenced by all those who enjoy hiking the outdoors.  Some great tips worth highlighting from it are:

  1. Wear light-colored clothing so that ticks can be seen more easily.
  2. Wear a long-sleeved shirt and tuck shirt into pants; tuck pants into boots or socks.
  3. Stay on trails and avoid contact with bushes or grasses alongside trails where ticks are common.  The same should be applied to your dog if you take them hiking with you.
  4. Check your entire body for ticks for several days after you are out of tick habitat.  Parents should carefully examine their children.

For for information, please visit the San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District's website.

Speed Limit Changes

Printer-friendly version

As required by law to establish speed limits on certain streets, City staff recently oversaw completion of an Engineering and Traffic Study for speed limits.  Included were all city streets that do not fall under the “Prima Facie” section of the California Vehicle Code for speed limits.  Prima facie speeds are 25 miles per hour (mph) for streets in residential and business districts, as defined by the vehicle code. 

With the study completed earlier this year, speed limits will change at the following locations:
