Concerts in the Park

Printer-friendly version

The Summer Concerts in the Park Series are greatly anticipated Brisbane Community events, funded entirely through the generous donations of businesses as well as local families who have come to really look forward to this late summer staple.  Already, we've seen donations come in from BiRite Foodservice Distributors, Dettmer Construction Co., F.W. Spencer & Son, Inc., Recology, and Louis Raphael, A Division of Kizan, International.  Would you like to join them in supporting this year's Concerts?  If so, please send a check payable to the City of Brisbane with "Concerts in the Park" in the memo line.  Please then send your donation to:

City of Brisbane
c/o Caroline Cheung
50 Park Place
Brisbane, CA 94005

All businesses and families who donate to the Concerts will have their company or family name featured on the banner that hangs between the two trees on Old County Rd adjacent to the Park.  Companies who donate $1,000 or more will also have their logo displayed on the banner, in addition to in all City publications such as The STAR and CityNews announcing the start of the Concerts and eventually the line-up.  But of course you don't have to give $1,000 - even $50 is much appreciated and will go towards planning of the Concerts.  Thank you in advance for thoughtfully considering supporting a popular and much-loved Brisbane Community Event!

Sierra Point Design Guidelines

Printer-friendly version

Sierra Point was planned in the 1980’s as a suburban office park.  Should the remaining buildout of Sierra Point occur per the approved master plan? Or should the City modify the master plan to create different opportunities for public space and public use at Sierra Point? The issue has been under study since 2006.  The City Council hearing date originally scheduled for April 16, 2012 has been continued to a date uncertain.  This post will be updated and public notices posted once a new date is set. In the interim, information regarding the Sierra Point Design Guidelines can be found at the City of Brisbane Community Development Department or on the City's website by clicking here.
