Happy Halloween!

Printer-friendly version

With Fall also comes the start of the Holiday Season. Halloween is a fun time of year, so let’s make sure it’s a safe holiday for all who participate. Make this Halloween fun, as demonstrated by Parks and Recreation Commissioner Renee Marmion (as Big Bird) and her dog (as Oscar the Grouch!), and enjoyable for your kids and neighbors by obtaining a safe costume for your child, ensuring your child is extra cautious while trick-or-treating in the neighborhood, providing a light for your child and reporting any suspicious activity or person to the police.

SamTrans Bus Shelter

Printer-friendly version

Earlier this week, SamTrans was in Brisbane installing their newest bus shelter, completing one of the final steps of this project.

The "punch list" work left for the contractor to do includes some minor clean up, painting a red curb in front of the bus stop, and putting breaks in the bike lane to indicate that the bus can cross the bike lane to pull up to the stop.  SamTrans will be responsible for maintaining the red curb as well as emptying the trash can next to the bus shelter. 

We posted earlier about the workshops SamTrans has been holding for their proposed new bus service plan.  Their next workshop is taking place next Tuesday in Daly City at the War Memorial Community Center (6655 Mission St., Daly City) from 6:00pm - 7:30pm. The public is encouraged to attend.  If you can't make the meeting, please fill out their online form by clicking here.

UPDATE 11/9/2012: THE EQUIPMENT WAS RECEIVED YESTERDAY AND IS SECURED AT PLAYGROUND UNLIMITED'S YARD.  BUILD DAY WILL BE WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH!  WHOO HOO!

UPDATE 10/19/2012: SITE PREP WORK FOR THE PLAYGROUND WILL BE COMMENCING THE WEEK OF OCT. 22ND.  THIS CONSTRUCTION WORK WILL ONLY BE TAKING PLACE ON WEEKDAYS.  THE ACTUAL EQUIPMENT IS SCHEDULED TO SHIP ON 10/29 AND ARRIVE ON 11/2.  A NEW DATE FOR BUILD DAY WILL BE SET AFTER THE EQUIPMENT ARRIVES.

UPDATE 10/12/2012: BUILD DAY ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE...WE ARE SHOOTING FOR THE PLAYGROUND TO BE INSTALLED BY EARLY-NOVEMBER.  CLICK HERE TO SEE THE LATEST UPDATE REGARDING THE PLAYGROUND, WHICH WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE CITY COUNCIL ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 15TH.  THE UPDATE WILL TAKE PLACE TOWARDS THE END OF THE MEETING.  CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL MEETING AGENDA.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have offered to help build the City's newest playground on Saturday, September 29th, starting at 7am.  It's an early morning start, and that's because the objective is to have the entire playground constructed (sans the posts which will be installed by the playground manufacturer and Brisbane Lions Club the day before) by 4:00pm.  After that's done, the rubber surfacing will be poured and allowed to cure, so that by Day in the Park the following Saturday, this will be what's standing in those currently empty spaces:

In case you're wondering the reason for there needing to be volunteers to help construct the playground, it's because the City was awarded a $20,000 grant through national non-profit, KaBOOM!, which emphasizes community-builds in order for deserving places to get their dream playground.  So, we're going to make the most of it, distributing the swag that KaBOOM! has nicely shipped to us, along with having facepainting by Brisane resident Madison Davis (whose face painting is being generously sponsored by Ron Davis Real Estate & Co.) so that the kids whose parents are volunteering can have some fun, too.  If you are planning on coming to Build Day, but haven't let someone at City Hall know, please e-mail Caroline Cheung at ccheung@ci.brisbane.ca.us so that enough food for lunch can be planned for, as well!  Thank you!

The Great California ShakeOut

10/18/2012 at 10:18 Brisbane Office of Emergency Services will be participating in "The Great ShakeOut!" The Brisbane Emergency Operations Center will be opened up to test communication plans with both County Office of Emergency Services and surrounding jurisdictions.

The Great California ShakeOut is an annual opportunity to practice "Drop, Cover and Hold On." The ShakeOut has also been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, communication plans, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.

Next Thursday, Shakeout.org is hosting the largest ever earthquake drill. In as little as 90 seconds you can learn and practice what steps you can take to protect yourself and those around you right from your computer! Join the 14 million other participants and get educated.

Participate from your desk, your computer, or while at home!  Just remember, on 10/18/2012 at 10:18am - "Drop, Cover and Hold On."

New Permitting System

Printer-friendly version

The City of Brisbane has launched a new Building Permits web-based system.  This new system allows the public to initiate and manage a variety of building permit requests and activities through a centralized web portal.  Additionally, the new system enables applicants to submit plans and documents electronically to the City  for review using the industry standard PDF file format.  Applicants may also schedule inspections and track the progess of their building permit application electronically.

On Monday, when the system launched, it was exciting to see a contractor use the new electronic building permit system for the first time!

Come to the Building/Planning Counter and check it out for yourself!  Staff will be close-by to assist you should you have any questions.  Should you have any before coming in, please contact Trisha Taylor at ttaylor@ci.brisbane.ca.us or (415) 508-2124.
