 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________

There was a lot of discussion at the September 15th Council Meeting regarding airplane noise under "Mayor/Council Matters" where Mayor Lentz talked about this quality of life issue.  Thus, Mayor Lentz will be holding another public meeting on Tuesday, October 11th at City Hall in the Community Meeting Room, starting at 6:30pm.  The items to be discussed include:

  • Analyzing the data from the new three temporary monitors on Kings Rd., Lipman Middle School, and Mission Blue Center, if available
  • Analyzing the FAA's feedback regarding the SSTIK, CNDEL, NIITE and 050 procedures

For those that are interested in the issue but cannot make the meeting, it will be broadcast live and archived afterwards as an update to this post as well as on the FAA Data page.

The next SFO Aiport Community/Roundtable Technical Working Group Meeting will take place a couple days later on Thursday, October 13.  Thank you to everyone who has come to those and City Council Meetings already to share their concerns.  There is work being done still on this issue and your input is still very much needed!

St. Vincent de Paul Book Drive

Printer-friendly version

St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) was founded in 1933 in San Mateo County with the initiative of helping the poor.  They currently have a campaign called Books 4 Hope, with a goal of bringing in 1 million books by next year.  How do they do this?  They host citywide drives for people to come and donate their books.  For every book SVDP is able to sell, whether online or in their stores, SVDP is able to provide approximately 3 meals to individuals in need. 

On the weekend of October 8 & 9, from 9am-4pm each day, representatives from St. Vincent de Paul will be on-site at the Christmas Tree Lot (corner of Old County Rd. & Bayshore Blvd.) for their Brisbane Book Drive.  Let’s help them make their goal!  If you would like to volunteer on either day of the book drive, or if you have any questions, please contact Kristen Trojel at (408) 420-0307.
