High School Bus Notification

Printer-friendly version

The City recently received notification from CYO (the provider of bus service from Brisbane to Terra Nova and Oceana High Schools) that it will not be able to provide service in the upcoming school year.  The City is currently researching the cost of alternative providers of bus service.  The annual cost of service was $95,000.  The City charged a portion of this to students who rode the bus and received between $12,000-$16,000 per year in ridership fees. 

City staff plans to present alternative bus options, if available, at the City Council meeting on Thursday, June 30, 2016.

Governor's By-Right Proposal

Printer-friendly version

The Governor and Democratic leaders reached a budget agreement that would allocate a one-time, $400 million dollars for affordable housing in exchange for approval of the Governor’s By-Right Proposal.  The Governor’s By-Right Proposal would allow by right approval for multi-family housing projects that set aside at least 20% of the units for low income residents.  Developments near transit stops could be built by right if they set aside 10% or more.  Although the projects would need to be consistent with our land-use laws, they would not need to go through a CEQA process or a public review process.  Essentially, this new law would:

1.       Lock out residents from city hall to participate in the planning and development process;

2.       Circumvent important environmental review processes; and

3.       Remove the ability of the City Council to vote on community development projects.

This bill is going forward with the state budget.  If you would like to let your representatives know your opinion on eliminating the City’s ability to influence development in Brisbane, their contact information is provided below.

Parkside Plan Update!

Printer-friendly version

The City Council and community members had a productive study session with consultants MIG about the three land use concepts prepared by MIG. Key discussion points included how to strike a balance between economic feasibility and maintaining community character, identifying and achieving community objectives and benefits, and meeting the city’s Housing Element obligations. MIG and staff will use the study session input to refine the draft Precise Plan, anticipated to be released for public review in early fall.

Check out the meeting video to hear the Council and community’s comments! The concept alternatives and MIG's PowerPoint presentation are available on the Parkside Documents webpage.

Comments on the concept alternatives are encouraged, and may be emailed to planning@ci.brisbane.ca.us or mailed to the Planning Department at City Hall (50 Park Place, Brisbane).

Keep your eyes peeled for additional opportunities to give input on the concept alternatives in the upcoming weeks!

 

HIP Housing Home Sharing Program

Printer-friendly version

Home Sharing is a living arrangement among two or more unrelated people. Home owners or renters (Home Providers) who have a residence with one or more bedrooms are matched with persons seeking housing (Home Seekers).

Two Types of Home Sharing
1. A home provider is matched with a home seeker who pays rent.
2. A home provider is matched with a home seeker who exchanges household duties for reduced rent.

Why Home Share?

  • Saves Money
  • Shares utility costs
  • Reduces financial worry
  • Provides mutual assistance
  • Increased security and independence

Who Home Shares?
Home Providers must live in San Mateo County. Home Seekers must live, work or attend school in San Mateo County or have a housing voucher for San Mateo County.  People who home share come from all walks of life… seniors, working persons, students, persons with disabilities, families, veterans, emancipated foster youth and others.

Home Providers, click here for more information.

San Mateo County Libraries Unveils Revitalized Brand

Printer-friendly version

For the first time in more than a decade, we’re unveiling a new brand—and we’re thrilled to invite you along on our latest adventure! Our services, collections, and spaces are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our community, and we’ve updated our look to reflect where we are today and where we hope to go in the future.

Shaped by our communities, the San Mateo County Libraries have become incomparable destinations for learning and growth. We’ve opened worlds of discovery and provided unmatched technological opportunities. As we continue to grow our commitment remains the same—but what we offer will only become more extraordinary. By redesigning our visual identity, this welcoming spirit and dedication to knowledge will continue to be reflected in everything we do.

Our new logo consists of a simple and imaginative “Burst of Knowledge” symbol representing the spread of information, our family of libraries, and radiating excitement that comes from experiencing something new. It also alludes to a central hub where shared ideas converge to ignite growth through transformative experiences.

Our corresponding brand tagline, Open for Exploration™, extends this spirit by conveying the essence of who we are, our mission, and our vision. It speaks to our various roles in the community, open access to information, a celebration of open-mindedness, and the welcoming atmosphere our patrons can expect to encounter.

With the adoption of these elements, we are excited to share our story with everyone who steps into our spaces or enjoys our services.

We have many locations, but we’re all part of one unified vision. In order to fully capture this, we’re making the switch from “San Mateo County Library” to “San Mateo County Libraries.” Each of our libraries is part of a larger family offering a world of opportunities, all accessible through a single card. Our name change makes this clear and allows us to more effectively stand together as one.

Our bright new look is a reflection of you—our community. So we’re welcoming you into our family of libraries to see the brand’s fresh burst of energy, and take part in fun activities that celebrate who we are together. Stop by for a new library card in your choice of four creative designs, and share your vibrant personality on one of our coloring bookmarks. Keep the excitement going with Open for Exploration™ Bingo and take part in a variety of experiences throughout our libraries. Each activity earns you one stamp. Complete a row to win a prize, or fill up the whole card for something really special!

We’re overjoyed to share our brand with you. Together, we will continue to strengthen our community by offering inclusive environments for learning and enriching experiences.

The San Mateo County Libraries are Open for Exploration™. Come discover something new today!

Serving as an Election Officer will not only give you an opportunity to make a direct contribution to our democracy and local community, it will also help you to gain a deeper understanding of our election process. If you want to volunteer your time and service, if you want to make a difference, serving as an Elections Officer on Election Day is a great way to do so. We look forward to seeing you at the polls in the coming election.

National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

Since 1960, the American Public Works Association (APWA) has sponsored National Public Works Week.  Across North America, more than 29,000 members in the U.S. and Canada use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating at the heart of their local communities to improve everyday quality of life.

At the Thursday, May 19 City Council meeting, the Public Works Department will be present to receive a Proclamation from the Council declaring May 15-21, 2016 as Public Works Week.

The 2016 National Public Works Week Poster theme is "Public Works Always There." This theme showcases the pervasiveness of the men and women of the profession who are always there and always ready to serve their communities.

Thank you, Department of Public Works, for truly living this year's theme out!










Our Public Works Dept. receiving a Proclamation for National Public Works Week (May 15-21, 2016) from Mayor Lentz at the 5/19 City Council meeting. Thank you for being "Always There" as this year's theme declares, and always being ready to serve your community.

Eyesight Conservation Program

Printer-friendly version

Did you know that the Brisbane Lions Club provides eye exams and glasses for anyone who's not able to afford them, so long as they live or work in town?  This is what is known as their Eyesight Conservation Program, where the Lions are truly Knights for the Blind.  To fund this program, the Lions Club takes donations on White Cane Day, which is a national observance in the United States, celebrated on October 15 of each year since 1964.  The date is set aside to celebrate the achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired and the important symbol of blindness and tool of independence, the white cane.  Come early October, you'll see Brisbane Lions Club members taking donations on Visitacion beginning in the wee hours of the morning.

Also, if you have an old pair of glasses, the Lions Club will gladly take them off your hands.  You can turn them in to the Lions Club via the drop box at Melissa's Taqueria.  For any questions about the Lions' Eyesight Conservation Program, please contact them at brisbanelionsclub@gmail.com.

Bike to Shop Day

Printer-friendly version

Like Bike to Work Day, Bike to Shop Day is an annual program that encourages people to ride bicycles for everyday transportation as part of National Bike Month celebrations.  This day is a one-day promotion to encourage people to shop by bike at local businesses.  Bike to Shop Day for Silicon Valley is May 21, 2016.

Shopping by bike is a great way for people to have fun and get a little exercise while taking care of daily or weekly errands.  Unlike most work commutes, most errands are local trips of under 2 miles.  That’s less than 15 minutes of bicycling for most people and only about 5 minutes more than a trip by car.  Other benefits include:

  • Shopping by bike is an easy way to get the 30 minutes a day of exercise that health professionals recommend.  Plus you’re “double dipping” by using errand time for exercise.
  • Bike parking is usually closer to the shop door.  It’s great to roll up to premium parking.
  • Since you buy only what you can carry, there’s less temptation to buy more than you need.
  • Many bike shoppers come home feeling energized instead of feeling drained, especially after a long chain of errands.

Melissa’s Taqueria, Julie’s Deli and Subway are participating in Bike to Shop Day 2016, with each offering a 10% discount to bikers that visit their shops on May 21st during their normal operating hours.  Have fun double-dipping!
