At last night's City Council meeting, Sue Cochran was recognized by the City Council for being Brisbane's 2016 Volunteer of the Year.
Each year, the City recognizes a Brisbane resident as its “Volunteer of the Year”, who the ad hoc City Council subcommittee selects after carefully reviewing letters of recommendation from other community members. The Volunteer of the Year award is bestowed upon a dedicated community member that has demonstrated ongoing commitment to the City of Brisbane. They act with the purpose of community in mind and give selflessly to others. The news of the year’s top volunteer is traditionally announced at the Day in the Park Festival. This year, the honors went to Sue Cochran.
Sue is known throughout the community for her contributions in many areas and is devoted to personally improving the quality of life for Brisbane residents. Of the many nominations received in support of Sue, most all echoed her “bright smile, great attitude, and genuine willingness to help.”
Sue has donated countless hours as an active Lion’s Club member and is a part of the Derby Volunteer team. She has led the Maker’s Club for Lipman’s afterschool program, and volunteers at Lipman’s Career Day. When Santa wasn’t available, she even stepped in as Mrs. Claus to visit students with special needs at BES.
In addition, Sue is known by fellow residents for taking Brisbane beautification into her own hands by sweeping Visitacion and cleaning areas of town on her own time. She frequently assists neighbors with landscaping, and is always the first to volunteer to help a senior in need. Her passion for serving others and unselfish enthusiasm is to be commended.
Many thanks to you, Sue, for your decades of volunteerism in our community and a well-deserved achievement as Brisbane’s 2016 Volunteer of the Year!
Save the dates! Five Saturdays this fall a Look Ahead-San Mateo project team member and local San Mateo County organizations will be on-hand to discuss coastal flooding and sea level rise challenges at the OWL virtual reality viewers in Coyote Point Recreation Area (next to Boardsports California) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.:
The OWLs are a modernized version of a vista viewer that offer visitors a panoramic tour of current and future flooding scenarios, current plans for the Point, and potential planning responses for the region into the future. The goal of the effort is to engage the residents of San Mateo County and increase awareness around the local impacts of sea level rise.

Group Solar and Electric Vehicle Buy Program to Lower Cost of Purchasing Solar and EVs for Local Residents
In August 2016, Brisbane joined other nearby cities in an initiative called Bay Area SunShares. Similar to last year’s program Peninsula SunShares, it’s an effort to encourage many more Bay Area homeowners to go solar and fossil fuel free.
The Bay Area SunShares program allows local residents to pool their purchasing power and receive bulk discounts for installing solar systems, and receive a discount on select zero-emission vehicles. Free community workshops were held in Brisbane on August 31 and October 8, 2016.
The 2016 Bay Area SunShares program is available for homeowners living in the City of Brisbane or those working in participating communities but living throughout the nine Bay Area counties. Multiple financing options are being offered including direct purchase, leasing, power purchase agreements and Property Assessed Clean Energy financing.
Qualified property owners will receive a free site evaluation to determine the suitability of their property. If their site is suitable, they will receive a no obligation proposal and can install a system at substantial cost savings from three local solar installers: Sunrun, Inc. Skytech Solar and Solar 4 America Petersen Dean were selected by the Bay Area SunShares community evaluation committee following a rigorous Request for Proposals process that vetted potential vendors. Two car dealers were also selected through this process: Nissan and Toyota. To take advantage of the volume discount, participants must sign a contract with one of the selected installers or purchase a vehicle by November 11, 2016.
Similar SunShares programs have been launched throughout the Bay Area resulting in hundreds of new solar installations and more than 3.4 megawatts of residential solar capacity. The SunShares program is based on successful models developed by the cities of Portland and San Jose in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy. In just the past few years, successful campaigns have spread from Oregon and California across the country to Colorado, Illinois and New York.
Bay Area SunShares is being administered by the San Francisco Business Council on Climate Change (a fiscally sponsored project of the 501(c)3 organization, Community Initiatives), on behalf of a group of cities, counties, major employers, and membership organizations.
