Repaving of Street Sections

Printer-friendly version

We are improving the condition of a number of streets in Brisbane by completely repaving them starting in September.  This does mean that specific roads will temporarily be closed while work is occurring.  Each resident or business within the project limits will receive wriitten notification one week in advance and again 24 hours before the start of the project.  Notification for parking restrictions will be provided 72 hours in advance.  Traffic will be accommodated during this time.  The street sections that will be repaired include the following:

Humboldt Rd from Placer Way to Kings Rd

Mendocino St from San Bruno Ave to Visitacion Ave

Mendocino St from Visitacion Ave to Solano St 

Plumas St from San Francisco Ave to Mariposa St

Ross Way from Glen Pkwy to Sierra Point Rd

Solano St from Mendocino St to End of Cul-de-sac

Tunnel Ave: rectangular section at north end of bridge

Tulare St from San Bruno Ave to End of Cul-de-sac
 

More information regarding the location and time of the repairs of each street section will be provided closer to the start date of the project.  We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience while this work is being done.  If you have any concerns or questions, please call the Public Works Department at (415) 508-2130.

Communicate With Your City

Printer-friendly version

Have you ever been walking around town and noticed a sidewalk tripping hazard, or a street tree that needs to be cut back?  Well, did you know you can report it right then and there to the City so it can be taken care of?  Since late 2011, the City has been using GORequest to keep track of service requests that have been submitted by the community.  You can download the app, GORequest (short for Government Outreach), on your iPhone or Android device.  If you don't have a smartphone, you can submit the service request online.

Last year, the City received 252 service requests via GORequest.  It's obvious that your fellow residents are seeing the benefit of using it.  So next time you see something around town on city property that needs fixing, don't hesitate to let us know about it!

Uservoice is another online platform that you can use to communicate with the City.  It's also been around a few years, with the most heightened amount of activity taking place on it when the Community Park playground was in its redesign phase.  You can access Uservoice by clicking on the red tab entitled "Public Forum & Feedback" located on every page of the website.  Clicking on it brings you to a pop-up window that looks a lot like this:

Different from GORequest, which is used for submitting a service request to the City, Uservoice can be used if you have an idea that you'd like the City Council and staff to consider.  If you see an idea you like, you can vote on it, and all the ideas with the most votes will rise to the top of the page.  So it's an easy way to see what your fellow community members are interested in.  The Council will be sent a weekly summary of all the activity that takes place on Uservoice, as they're posted, so you know your ideas will be heard.

We hope this gives you a better idea of the tools that are available for you to use, and in what situations, and above all, that you do take advantage of them!

Crocker Park is 91+% Filled

Printer-friendly version

Taking a drive down Valley Dr., or the “spine” of Crocker Industrial Park, it may appear from the scattered For Lease signs that there are a lot of buildings sitting empty.  But in speaking with folks who have a good pulse on the commercial realty market, like Jason Cranston, Senior VP of Commercial Real Estate Services for Cassidy Turley and Mitch Bull, President of the Brisbane Chamber of Commerce, Crocker Park is actually doing quite well with more businesses moving in than leaving in the past couple years.  Here are a few examples of movement in the Park that has helped the occupancy rate increase to what it is: Del Monte Meat Co. has moved in at 145 South Hill Drive as well as circuit board manufacturers, LeeMah Electronics, right next door.  The 60,000 sq. ft. warehouse 100 Cypress which the Brisbane School District used a few years back as the site for their biggest fundraiser of the year, Spring Thing, will soon be leased to Bay Area LinensArrowhead/Nestlé Waters moved in to the space at 246 Valley and Monster Cable, located at 455 Valley, has renewed their lease.  If you’ve noticed more of those white, AT&T vans driving around town, that’s because AT&T moved a service center into 355 Valley las year after signing a five-year lease. 

As for the locations with large For Sale or For Lease signs, the old Gilmore Envelope building at 325 Valley recently went up for sale, as engineering firm F.W. Spencer & Son, Inc. (located at 99 S. Hill), last summer completed prefabricating the plumbing lines for the new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara in that space (see photo at left).  A huge Colliers sign is advertising 165 as being for sale, but in the interim it is being occupied by its owners.  Nearly across the street at 200 Valley, which are where 56 business condos are located, two are being listed for sale.  Lastly 280 Valley, 460 Valley and 480 are vacant, but they total less than 54,000 sq. ft.  So for the nearly 3.7M sq. ft. in Crocker Industrial Park, where 91+% is currently being occupied, the Park’s doing pretty darn well!

 

Severe Drought Conditions

Printer-friendly version

In response to the last three dry years in California, the State Water Resources Control Board this past Tuesday approved a statewide emergency regulation to ensure water agencies and their customers increase water conservation or face possible fines or other enforcement.  The new conservation regulation is intended to reduce outdoor water use, and if approved by the Office of Administrative Law, could go into effect as early as August 1, 2014

With this regulation, all Californians will be expected to stop: washing down driveways and sidewalks; watering of outdoor landscapes that cause excess runoff; using a hose to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is outfitted with a shut-off nozzle, and using potable water in a fountain or decorative water feature, unless the water is recirculated.  Additionally, landscape irrigation will be restricted to no more than 2 days per week.  Click here to read the Water Control Board's press release on this issue.

Should the Board adopt this regulation, the City will be sure to communicate the implications to its residents using all available communication channels.  In the meantime, please prevent water waste - visit www.SaveOurH2O.org to find out how everyone can do their part in conserving this precious resource.

Fire Station Lighting Upgrades

Printer-friendly version

Say goodbye to T-12 lamps and incandescents at Station 81 and hello to T-8's and compact fluorescent lighting (CFLs)!  Thanks to the City Council for approving this energy efficiency upgrade at the Fire Station in their 2014-15 Budget, and San Mateo County Energy Watch, we are upgrading all the T-12 lamps to T-8 lamps as well as all incandescents to CFLs in the Fire Station.

San Mateo County Energy Watch is a partnership between PG&E and the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG).  Serving San Mateo County and unincorporated areas, the organization provides audits for facilities, work proposals, and contractor oversight of retrofits for energy projects.

While the previous lamps only had a 28,000 hour service life, the installed, new T-8 lamps will have a 36,000 hour service life, reducing the replacement frequency.  This project is not only expected to save 18,500 lbs of CO2 annually but also $2,225 on utility costs!

Because this is an On-Bill Financing project, PG&E is providing us with a 0% loan with the requirement that it is paid back within 10 years.  On-Bill Financing (OBF) is where a utility company provides convenient financing options to help implement energy efficiency investments.

These lighting upgrades will be completed at the Fire Station today. 

See if you can spot the difference!
