Playground Final Touches

Printer-friendly version

Remember all the sand that was at the former play structure?  Well thanks to Public Works, a portion of it has been brought back to use in the sand pit area.  So, kids will soon have the ability to dig, build, and play in the sand once again.  FYI, the new green jug filler located in the sand area should be used for sand and water play...not the drinking fountains anymore.  The landscaping company the city contracts with will be blowing all the fallen leaves away from the play structure, so that it looks its best for its grand debut.  Staff will be on-hand tomorrow to make sure the playground is wiped down from the morning dew and that spiral slide doesn't have a puddle at the end of it!  We look forward to the playground finally being dedicated to the Community - join Mayor Lentz and all the other playground supporters for this splendid occasion - coffee, pastris, and donuts will be on-hand.

2012 Festival of Lights

Printer-friendly version

The skies remained dry for the latter half of Sunday, December 2nd.  It's been a tradition for the past 26 years to host the City's annual Festival of Lights on the first Sunday in December.  Holiday carolers make their way down Visitacion Ave. towards the Community Park, Santa makes a stop in town to light the Festival Tree, and performances by Brisbane's talented youth entertain the many that have come to watch the festivities along San Francisco St.  It really is a unique celebration, and one which Brisbane resident Christina Florkowski photographed, so that we can all remember the special feeling we felt that night when the Community came together.  Thank you, Christina, for capturing these fabulous shots for all of us to enjoy.

Playground Ribbon-Cutting

Printer-friendly version

We've been seeing stars lately!  Not just in the sense of the five-pointed shape, but in the people working at the playground to get the project done! 


Public Works Crewmembers Ramiro Ibarra and Dustin Cohn assisted with pumping out rainwater from what will be the sand box area on Thursday morning. 
With a more dry surface to work with, the contractors were able to start laying down the base mat layer for the rubber surfacing, which is made out of recycled tires.


The finished base mat for the swing area is ready to get its second layer applied.


But before the color is applied, the white stars are formed with a template.


It takes two people to get the job done most effectively.


So that the result is a perfect cookie-cutter like star!


Earlier this morning, local contractor Mike Glynn started applying the gold donor stars to the concrete seat wall with a heavy-duty expoxy.  Kessel Crockett has been carefully mounting each of the 210 gold donor stars since then.

The contractor will be done applying the rubber surfacing on Monday, at which time it needs time to fully cure.  So, the fence will still be up until the end of the week.

The Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony will be taking place on Saturday, December 15th, starting at 10:00am.  Make sure you come out to for the official dedication of Brisbane's newest playground!

Adopt-A-Drain Program

Printer-friendly version

Can 1 person help the city during these storms? 

Of course!  With nearly 500 catch basins to keep clean, city crews are stretched pretty thin during the first few rains storms that include heavy rains.  Keeping the inlet of the catch basin in the street near your house will keep the water moving and help prevent flooding. 


A storm drain covered with debris from the storm.


60 seconds of work later!

There's no need to dispose of the debris, just move it to the sidewalk or street and DPW will pick it up as soon as they can.

If you are interested in "officially" adopting the storm drains nearest your home, please click here for more information.
