RICAPS Receives Award from US EPA

Printer-friendly version

The San Mateo County Office of Sustainability's RICAPS program (Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite) was publicly recognized for their leadership in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate action during the 2017 Climate Leadership Awards Dinner, as part of the Climate Leadership Conference, held in Chicago, IL from March 1 - 3, 2017.  City of Brisbane staff regularly attend the RICAPS county working group, and it was RICAPS that guided staff on completing the City's first-ever Climate Action Plan and assisted with the City being the first agency in the state to ever receive a Gold-level Beacon Award.  We are grateful for the forward-thinking technical support from the County of San Mateo, and the tools and templates that RICAPS makes publicly available that enable other regional agencies the ability to reduce their GHG emissions as well.

Bayshore Roadwork 3/10, 7a-5p

Printer-friendly version

You may want to avoid Bayshore today between 7am-5pm if you can - crews will be coring between the SSF/Brisbane city limits and Old County Rd. in preparation for Cold In-Place Recycling taking place in mid-April.  Basically, they need to take samples of the asphalt in order to know the proper "mix" for when Bayshore gets a major facelift in roughly 6 weeks...which hasn't been done since the late 90's when it was slurry-sealed!  It's going to look and feel great to drive on, but we need your patience as this first part of the project is completed.  One lane of traffic in both directions will remain open at all times. Thank you in advance for your cooperation! And if you want to read more about Cold In-Place Recycling and the environmentally-progressive aspects of it, you can do so here.
