Bayshore Road Work

Printer-friendly version

You may have noticed road work being performed on Bayshore and heard thermoplastic striping being ground as you drove by.  This work is being done in preparation for slurry sealing that will take place on several streets in Brisbane between May 14 – 16 as part of the 2013 Pavement Maintenance Project which the Council approved last Fall.  The area on Bayshore Blvd. just south of Old County Rd. to Guadalupe Canyon Parkway will be worked on for the remainder of the week, so please use caution when driving through this area and be aware of lane closures and work crews.  More detailed information including other affected streets will be posted to the city’s website on Friday, May 9th.  Thank you for your patience as the city completes these important roadway improvements!   

Be Ready

With the Bay Area's anomalously warm, dry winter, the work that North County Fire Authority (NCFA) is doing in Brisbane becomes ever more important.  Earlier this week, NCFA in coordination with CAL FIRE, had fire hand crews reducing weeds and brush along an approximately 100-ft. deep strip behind homes from the end of Trinity Rd. to just beyond the intersection of Kings and San Mateo Ln.  This vegetation reduction fuel break was established several years ago and constructed with the intent to reduce the potential for the rapid spread of fire.  The June 22, 2008 brush fire in Owl and Buckeye Canyons of San Bruno Mountain that resulted in a total of 30 fire companies from all over the Peninsula arriving to fight the blaze and 102 residences being evacuated, is still often recounted by the city and its residents.

On that note, please remember to get signed up for SMC Alerts if you haven't already done so.  This is the platform the city's Office of Emergency Services will use in the event of a disaster or an emergency. 

The city has also joined the County of San Mateo in becoming a Weather-Ready Ambassador, partnering with the National Weather Service and National Atmospheric Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) personnel on potential collaboration opportunities.  Such may be the case when NCFA conducts their annual Wildland Fire Awareness event in early June.  Details to come.  In the meantime, you can get up-to-the-minute weather updates by following the Bay Area's National Weather Service on Twitter (@NWSBAYAREA).

Brisbane resident Dan Ryan's photography work that will be exhibited at City Hall during May and June was put up yesterday in the large conference room.  Come and check out the images he has captured, which are excerpts from a project he began in 2012 called "Tokyo Panic Stories", a forthcoming book of 'literary-photojournalism' containing photographs, straightforward reporting, fictional narrative, and poetry.  An artist reception will take place at City Hall on Wednesday, May 21 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.  All are welcome!

Thanks to the hard work of many dedicated volunteers, and Councilmember Cliff Lentz championing the renovation efforts of the area located behind the Library and Community Center since Rebuilding Together Peninsula's National Rebuilding Day in 2012, Library Park is now ready to be formally dedicated to the Brisbane Community.

Petition to the FAA

Printer-friendly version

A petition was recently created by a core working group of Brisbane residents requesting signatures of all those concerned with the increasing aircraft noise over Brisbane.  You may view more information about the petition here.  For any questions, please contact Brisbane resident Peter Grace at 415-508-6331.

Note:  The workshops held by the FAA to take public comment on their Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for Northern California (NorCal) Optimization of Airspace and Procedures in the Metroplex (OAPM) project have passed, but the FAA issued a public notice on April 24 that the deadline to comment on the NorCal OAPM has been extended by 10 days to Sunday, May 4, 2014.  Also, the FAA Data page on the City's website is updated regularly and shows monthly infraction information provided by the FAA.
