Prior to the Community Choice Energy/Peninsula Clean Energy Informational Workshop last night, a Tutorial on Brisbane Town Hall was held.  Below is the recording.  Apologies for the faint audio...please turn up your speakers!  The slide deck can be accessed here.

Have a question you think would be appropriate to ask your fellow community members?  Send an e-mail to Caroline at ccheung@ci.brisbane.ca.us and it just might appear as a future forum topic on Brisbane Town Hall!

Caltrain Construction Work

Printer-friendly version

Since April of 2015, Caltrain has been performing work within the railroad right-of-way in Brisbane as part of the Advanced Signal System Project to upgrade the safety, performance, and operating efficiency of the Peninsula’s commuter rail system. 

On January 23 – January 24, Caltrain will be conducting safety tests on the corridor as part of the final phase of implementing the Advanced Signal System Project. To test the Advanced Signal System, including the roadway crossings, a test train will run through the corridor between 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Tests are conducted at night to avoid disruption of most of regular train service and properly record the results. Neighbors may experience standard gate crossing noise and horns during this time and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Advanced Signal System, also called Communications Based Overlay Signal System (CBOSS) Positive Train Control (PTC) will equip the corridor with federally-mandated safety technology and increase system capacity to help accommodate future ridership demand. The Project will monitor and, if necessary, control train movement in the event of human error. This will increase safety by:

  • Eliminating the risk of train-to-train collisions
  • Reducing risk of potential derailments by enforcing speed limits
  • Providing additional safety for railroad workers on the tracks
  • Improving grade crossing performance to reduce gate downtime and improve local traffic circulation

The CBOSS PTC system is scheduled to be operational by 2015 and is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization Program, which will electrify the Caltrain Corridor by 2019.  An electrified Caltrain will be cleaner and quieter and will upgrade the system to provide faster and/or more frequent service to more stations and riders.

To implement the CBOSS PTC system, there are several installation phases (boring, conduit, fiber pulling, testing) that will occur within Caltrain's right-of-way, usually at night (8pm to 6am) in order to maintain regular train service.  Testing of the fiber cable and the overall system is scheduled for spring 2015.  Residents may experience some minor installation noise during this time.  For more information, please view the Caltrain's CBOSS PTC Project page or contact Caltrain at (650) 508-6499; e-mail: caltrainptc@samtrans.com .

Peninsula Clean Energy

Printer-friendly version

Please join us for an informational workshop on Tuesday, January 26th at 7:30pm at City Hall and learn more about a potential new energy option in San Mateo County.  Peninsula Clean Energy is the name given to the potential Community Choice Energy (CCE) program in San Mateo County.  This potential program would offer residential and commercial electricity customers new energy options, including higher renewable energy content at competitive rates.  If formed, electricity customers in the County would be able to choose between Peninsula Clean Energy and PG&E as their electricity purchaser.  Peninsula Clean Energy customers would receive multiple electricity options, each with a different amount of renewable energy content, at prices competitive with PG&E. 

It is expected that sometime in February, the Council will be considering joining as a participating agency of the Joint Powers Authority (JPA), which would allow Brisbane residential and commercial electricity customers the ability to participate in Peninsula Clean Energy. 

To be part of the dialogue, get project updates and learn more about the program, visit the Peninsula Clean Energy website or Facebook page: http://fb.com/groups/pencleanenergy.

Note: A 30-minute tutorial on how to register for and use Brisbane Town Hall will take place prior to the PCE Workshop, starting at 6pm in the Community Meeting Room.  Staff will be available with extra laptops to help residents with on-site registration.  We hope to hear from more residents; the City is listening!
