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.

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!

 

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.
