Printer-friendly version

On June 20th, 2016 the City informed the Brisbane community that it had 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.  City staff researched alternatives and presented options to City Council on Thursday, June 30.  Council directed staff to enter into contract with an alternative vendor to continue service for the 2016-2017 school year.  SF Metro Trans (www.sfmetrotrans.com) will be providing continued service to and from these school for Brisbane students starting on August 10th. The school bus pick up and drop off site will be at City Hall, 50 Park Place. Daily pickup time will be 7:00am ensuring students arrival at school well before the first bell.  During the first two weeks of school, transportation will be free for all students. During that time period, the district will compile a list of bus riders, issue bus ID cards, and collect ridership fees. Effective August 29, 2016, students who have not yet paid their fee will be excluded from riding the bus.  Please contact Recreation Coordinator, Ricardo Monroy, at rmonroy@ci.brisbane.ca.us with questions.

Aircraft Overflight and Noise Analysis

Printer-friendly version

Aircraft Noise Abatement Office: Aircraft Overflight and Noise Analysis of Brisbane, CA

In response to growing community concerns of increased aircraft noise in the city of Brisbane, San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Noise Abatement Office conducted a 22 day noise measurement survey at three locations throughout the city to determine the noise levels from aircraft overflights. Noise data was collected from October 28, 2010 through November 18, 2010 at 3xx Kings Road, 2 Solano Street and 475 Mission Blue Drive. Data from these temporary meters along with data from permanent noise monitor #7- located at Margaret Tank are presented in this report.

Review of historical radar data from 2000 through November 2010 was also accomplished using SFO’s Airport Noise and Operations Management System (ANOMS). Seven typical West Plan1 days were identified during the busiest traffic times for March, June, September and November for each of the 11 calendar years. Both Oakland International Airport (OAK) and SFO operations for these identified days2 were then processed through three flight track analysis gates (Brisbane1, Brisbane2, and Brisbane3) in ANOMS. All aircraft operations through these gates were analyzed and presented in this report.

NEW Build-Your-Own Derby Car Workshops! 
One of the goals of the annual Brisbane Derby is to have families work together on building and racing their own derby cars. We recognize that the task of building a derby car may be daunting to some and we don’t want that to restrict participation. Therefore, we will be hosting three workshops to aid you in the construction process. Local handyman extraordinaire Dan “Can Do” Sorrentino to the rescue! Dan will not be building your derby car for you, but rather he will have power saws, hammers, and other necessary tools available for parents and kids to use. He will provide advice, support, and direction while you build your own derby car. Come on out and make this a family event! Pre-registration is required. For more information, or to register, contact Steve Beaty at 415-508-2144. 
Fee: $25 for derby car kit & workshop | Location: Teen Center Shed, 22 San Bruno Avenue, Brisbane
Dates: Saturdays, August 20, 27, & September 10 | Times: 11:00am to 3:00pm.

Derby practices will be held on San Francisco Street on Saturday, September 10th and Saturday, September 17th from 9:00am-Noon to help riders prepare for the big race!

Mark your calendars!  The 2016 Day in the Park Festival will take place on Saturday, September 24th from 10:00am-3:00pm with the Derby starting beforehand at 8:00am.  This year marks the 30th Annual Day in the Park and the 10th Annual Derby!  

The Parks & Recreation Department is hopeful that the commemorative nature of this year’s event will excite the community and encourage record attendance.  Promising a fresh spin on the event, this year's festivities will include the following:

  • An improved layout with vendors lining Old County Road,
  • Live music for all to enjoy,
  • Beer/Wine for the adults,
  • Festive community-building events such as a dog costume contest and pie-eating contest,
  • A walk down memory lane to celebrate and honor the history and evolution of the past 3 decades,
  • Activities for teens,
  • and New attractions and entertainment for the kids. 

The event's new layout will open up the park for attendees to bring a blanket, and have a picnic while enjoying all that the event has to offer.  We’re very excited about the potential for this year’s event and we hope you are too!
