Wendy Ricks, whose voice you would often hear if you dialed City Hall, and whose writing filled the pages of the monthly City STAR newsletter, announced her retirement last month. She is dearly missed, but is working her "dream job" at the Santa Sabina Retreat Center in San Rafael, Calif.
"Serving the citizens of the City of Brisbane has been rewarding and gratifying," said Wendy, "and I am so very grateful for the many years of working with everyone."
If you didn't get a chance to say goodbye to Wendy, do not fret. A Wine & Cheese Retirement Celebration is being planned in honor of Wendy on Wednesday, September 16, from 6-8pm at City Hall. The public is invited to stop by and wish Wendy well on her new career journey!
Did you know that there is a Caltrain "Bayshore/Brisbane Senior Shuttle" that can start only in the Bayshore/Brisbane area? This shuttle is funded by SamTrans and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority with the co-operation of Daly City, Brisbane, BAAQMD and CCAG. And if you're not a Senior, don't worry, you're not required to be over a certain age to ride this shuttle, nor do you need a shuttle pass (those are only necessary for the Commute.org-operated shuttles).
On Monday and Friday the Caltrain shuttle may be booked to Serramonte shopping center or any stop along the way.
On Tuesday and Thursday the shuttle may be booked to Tanforan or any stop along the way.
To book your next trip, please call (415) 740-9458 to speak directly to the driver (the shuttle will circle on the route until it gets a phone call booking a trip.

A new face can be seen in and around City Hall these days - Noreen Leek has been hired as the City's new Recreation Manager in the Parks and Recreation Department. Noreen comes to us from the City of Menlo Park, where she worked eight years in the city's Community Services Department; first as a Recreation Coordinator, then as a Recreation Supervisor, and ultimately, a Recreation Manager. Her responsibilities included: production of their Activity Guide (a whopping 72 pages!) and other marketing materials, overseeing the Recreation Center and its operations, and leading special events and the city's gymnastics programs.
She will be interfacing in large part with the Parks and Recreation Commission, overseeing special events such as the Day in the Park Community Festival (also, SAVE THE DATE for another Hydrant Re-painting & Restoration Weekend, happening Oct. 10 & 11), managing production of the Activity Guide, and supervising the department, which is led by Administrative Services Director, Stuart Schillinger.
"I am grateful to have the honor of serving as the new Recreation Manager and to become part of the Brisbane community," said Noreen, and "I look forward to encouraging collaborative partnerships with the local business community and expanding recreation for the city as a whole."
If you'd like to contact Noreen, you can do so at (415) 508-2141 or email@example.com. Or, stop by and say "hello" in person; her door is always open!

Registered Voters – In the Mail 8/25
City’s Baylands Survey
Complete and Return by 9/12
The City has consistently sought the community’s input in the Baylands planning process and we are asking for your assistance once again. On or about August 25, 2015 a survey to gauge community opinions and attitudes on a number of issues pertaining to the Baylands will be mailed to all registered voters in Brisbane. Please watch your mail for a survey packet from "Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin and Metz", the independent firm hired by the City to prepare and administer the survey. The deadline to complete and return the survey is September 12, 2015. All responses must be postmarked by that date.
With Planning Commission hearings on the Baylands scheduled to start in September and extend into November, the survey results will be an important factor in the City’s decision-making process for the Baylands.
Make your voice heard - the City values your opinion! Thanks for your interest and participation.
The Community Center has been getting a facelift over the past couple of weeks with the installation of wainscot panels along the lower portion of the walls. This was needed to address the scuff marks on the walls left from the backs of chairs and the room's general heavy usage. A new chair rail was originally considered, but wainscoting was determined to be a great solution for covering up all of the imperfections along the lower section of the walls. Though considered a smaller project in terms of cost (the City Council funded this project with adoption of the 2015-16 budget), its impact is one that is more noticed, as the Community Center is widely used by many members of the community, including the Library, Seniors, Brisbane Dance Workshop, and other community clubs and organziations. We hope you enjoy the Community Center's new look with the traditional style of wainscoting!
