Lipman Slide Repair Project

Printer-friendly version

There's just the fencing that needs to be installed, along with sod to avoid soil erosion.  The Lipman Tennis Courts will also be given a fresh coat of paint, which will make the entire area much more inviting and pleasant once all is said and done.  In the meantime, there are always the courts at Mission Blue for you to practice your strokes on!

This project is a project of the Brisbane School District, which the City of Brisbane lent its support and assistance to in securing a FEMA grant to help pay for the project, as well as in general project management oversight.  If you'd like to see how this project has progressed over the summer, click here to see its previous posts.

Lastly, the Brisbane Chamber of Commerce and the League of Women Voters will be hosting a Candidate's Night at City Hall in the Community Meeting Room in the Sept/Oct timeframe for the public to attend and ask questions of each candidate.  A date for this event has not yet been set.  Look out for more detailed event information on the City's blog, monthly news publications, the City News, Ch. 27, and the signboards in town.

Brisbane's 50th Anniversary

Printer-friendly version

Our evening of celebration is fast-approaching.  We hope you have saved Saturday, September 10th for celebrating Brisbane's 50th Anniversary, beginning at 6:30pm at Xebec bar + dining, located within the Radisson Hotel - 5000 Sierra Point Pkwy, BrisbaneThe entire town is invited to attend!

Music and dance entertainment will be provided by Sharon Boggs and Anton Hedman of Sound Productions, with Brisbane's own Cabaret Star, Leanne Borghesi, taking the stage.  Leanne appears direct from a three-week smash late-night series at San Francisco's RRazz Room.  Anita Cocktail and the BJ's will also be taking to the stage, making sure everyone present has a grand time.

The City will be hosting food and a champagne toast.  There will be a no-host bar if you'd like to buy your own drinks.  Other than that, the event is free!

San Francisco Photo Booth will be on-hand to document this very special occassion.  An actual photo booth will be on-site for guests to have their photos taken together.  Pile in as many folks as you want for your photos.  Four successive photos will be taken, and afterwards printed on two strips of photo paper.  One is for you to take home, and the other will be compiled into an album, where you can write well-wishes to Brisbane or what you love most about your city.  The album will go on display at City Hall after the celebration for all to see!

Hope to see you there for all the fun and festivities!

Median on Bayshore

Printer-friendly version

You may have noticed construction work being done in the middle of Bayshore this week.  Contractors were installing a median between the north and south lanes in order to make room for the bike lanes that will be installed and finished with rumble strips and striping (both of which will occur over the next couple weeks).  Crews were using an extruder machine/slipformer to easily and efficiently construct the median.  The concrete is pressed and full compacted by the time it exits the machine, resulting in far less cement consumption made and a median of the highest concrete compressive strength.  Take a look:

After the pre-cast median exits the machine, crews quickly make the finishing touch-ups before allowing it to dry.  It's safe to say, the advancement of technology such as this has allowed terms like, "All in a day's work." to take on whole new meanings.

Living Lighter

Sometimes it just seems like we're being weighed down by the circumstances going on around us.  We get bogged down with just trying to stay afloat, and having time for exercise is seen as not only rare, but a luxury.  Well now is a great time to get that all turned around.  Water Aerobics with Patricia Rohn as well as the Living Lighter Fitness Program are two ways to get in a great workout and to de-stress.  Click here for more information.  Stop by the Parks and Recreation Office (2nd Fl. of City Hall), or register for an account on ActiveNet and get signed up onilne!  Here's to a lifted mood and a happier you!
