Community Pipeline Safety Initiative

Printer-friendly version

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is working with customers and the City of Brisbane to help ensure safety crews have immediate access to natural gas transmission pipelines in case of an emergency.  This important gas safety work involves reviewing structures, trees and brush located near the gas pipeline that could block emergency access for first responders or damage the pipeline.  For any tree or structure that needs to be replaced for safety reasons, PG&E will work with the property owner to develop a plan that protects public safety while preserving the character and natural beauty of the community. 

For more information on the planned gas safety work in Brisbane, please contact Emily Sloan, PG&E's local customer outreach specialist, at 1-650-737-2001 or emily.sloan@pge.com.  Additional information on the Community Pipeline Safety Initiative, as well as other PG&E gas safety efforts, can also be found at pge.com/GasSafety.

Recap of Parkside Pop-Up Event

Printer-friendly version

Thank you to all the community members who came to post their feedback on the various display boards this past Saturday, October 24, 2015 at the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop.  The event took place on Old County Rd. in conjunction with the Lions' Flu Shot Clinic and Pumpkin Patch, both of which were successful in their own right (the Lions sold out of pumpkins and 169 people got their flu shot, the most ever)!  We had a great turnout and conversations with many people interested about the upcoming plan.  Special thanks to the City Council and all the staff, including Police, Fire, Public Works, Parks and Rec, and of course the Community Development Department in their planning with consultant MIG for the workshop.  We look forward to more opportunities to engage with the community about the Parkside area!  To receive e-mail updates about the Parkside Precise Plan, please sign up to be added to the Parkside at Brisbane Village e-mail distribution list if you haven't already done so.

3 Special Events on 10/24

Printer-friendly version

Join the Brisbane Lions Club and the City for 3 special events in the heart of our downtown on Saturday, October 24!

The Lions will be holding their annual Flu Shot Clinic (free!) at the Senior Sunrise Room (2 Visitacion Ave.) from 9am - 12pm and their much-anticipated Pumpkin Patch under the Gazebo in the Community Park from 9am - 2pm (donations accepted).

Old County Rd. will be closed to traffic from the Brisbane Village Shopping Center (the businesses will remain accessible) to the Skatepark (Park Ln.) from 8am - 1pm for the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop, taking place from 10am - 12:30pm. The consultants want to stripe the roadway in different scenarios to give the public a more experiential take on how the entryway to town could look differently.  So, bring you own bike to ride (or walk) the various scenarios.  There will also be food (catered by Melissa's), live music, activities for kids (Storytime with Francisco from the Brisbane Library is from 10-10:30am and Capt. Jack Spareribs performs at 11a), face painting, pumpkin-decorating with stickers, and the antique fire truck will be out for tots (and adults) to take pictures with.  The workshop will take place from 10am - 12:30pm so be sure to get your flu shot, pick up your pumpkin, and provide your feedback at the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop!
