Smoking Ordinance for Multi-Unit Residences

Printer-friendly version

The Smoking Ordinance that Council adopted on November 3, 2016 went into effect December 2016 but its enforcement has been delayed until June 1, 2017 to allow for public education of the ordinance and for property owners and tenants to become aware of the new regulations and take any necessary measures to comply with the ordinance.  Smoking is prohibited in all multi-unit residences, all unenclosed and enclosed common areas, and all other areas of a multi-unit residence.  Smoking is also prohibited within at least 30 feet in any direction from any operable doorway, window, opening or other vent into an enclosed area that is located at the multi-unit residence, areas primarily used by children, and areas with improvements that facilitate physical activity including playgrounds and swimming pools.  Smoking is permitted in a designated smoking area if the property has such area (and not all properties will have such an area).  Outdoor designated smoking areas must be located more than 30 feet from the above listed prohibited areas. 

Violations of designation of smoking areas should be addressed to the City’s Code Enforcement Officer Michelle Moneda by calling (415) 508-2172 or e-mailing mmoneda@ci.brisbane.ca.us.  To report a violation in progress (“on-view violation”) of the ordinance, please call Dispatch at (415) 467-1212.  A Smoking Ordinance page with FAQs and helpful links can be found on the City’s website at: www.brisbaneca.org/smoking-ordinance.

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.
