Printer-friendly version

Aqua Zumba starts again Feb. 8 at the Pool!

Aqua Zumba blends the Zumba philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you don’t want to miss!

There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba class so you can really let loose.  You will have a great workout, while you're having fun.

The class consists of six sessions on Mondays, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

Class Dates: Feb. 8, 15, 22, 29, March 7 & 14.

Cost: $60 residents* / $72 non-residents.

* If you live or work in town, you qualify for the resident rate!

Register online at or in the Brisbane Recreation office - 50 Park Place, 2nd Fl.  For any questions, contact Recreation Supervisor Steve Beaty at (415) 508-2144 or sbeaty@ci.brisbane.ca.us.

Peninsula Clean Energy

Printer-friendly version

Please join us for an informational workshop on Tuesday, January 26th at 7:30pm at City Hall and learn more about a potential new energy option in San Mateo County.  Peninsula Clean Energy is the name given to the potential Community Choice Energy (CCE) program in San Mateo County.  This potential program would offer residential and commercial electricity customers new energy options, including higher renewable energy content at competitive rates.  If formed, electricity customers in the County would be able to choose between Peninsula Clean Energy and PG&E as their electricity purchaser.  Peninsula Clean Energy customers would receive multiple electricity options, each with a different amount of renewable energy content, at prices competitive with PG&E. 

It is expected that sometime in February, the Council will be considering joining as a participating agency of the Joint Powers Authority (JPA), which would allow Brisbane residential and commercial electricity customers the ability to participate in Peninsula Clean Energy. 

To be part of the dialogue, get project updates and learn more about the program, visit the Peninsula Clean Energy website or Facebook page: http://fb.com/groups/pencleanenergy.

Note: A 30-minute tutorial on how to register for and use Brisbane Town Hall will take place prior to the PCE Workshop, starting at 6pm in the Community Meeting Room.  Staff will be available with extra laptops to help residents with on-site registration.  We hope to hear from more residents; the City is listening!

Call for Artists

Printer-friendly version

Do you paint, dabble in photography, work with mixed media, or have some other forms of artwork that you would like to display at City Hall?  Well, the Parks and Recreation Department is looking to line up the next few months' of artwork for display in the conference room at City Hall.  Thanks to the efforts of Clara Johnson, former Brisbane Mayor, and Carole Nelson, former Community Development Director, the Large Conference Room at City Hall now serves not only as the main meeting location for city business, but also as an art gallery.  There have already been a handful of artist shows, which are always accompanied with a Wednesday evening Artist Reception.  

If you would like to showcase your work in City Hall's "art gallery", please contact Noreen Leek at (415) 508-2141.

Home Efficiency Project Planned?

Printer-friendly version

Greater financing options are now available to Brisbane residents who are planning any home efficency projects, as the Council has elected to have Brisbane participate in the California HERO (Home Energy Renovation Opportunity) Program.  Similar to CaliforniaFirst, another efficiency financing program, HERO finances projects such as distributed generation renewable energy sources, energy and water efficiency improvements, and electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.  This is a completely voluntary program where qualifying projects are financed with the contracted amount collected via the property tax bill.  Thus, the HERO program is available to residential and commerical property owners only.  Visit the HERO website, www.heroprogram.com to search their network of licensed, verified contractors.  You may also submit your e-mail address to https://www.heroprogram.com/brisbane if you wish to be notified once the program is active.
