New Fire Vehicle for Brisbane

Printer-friendly version

Last night before the City Council meeting, the Council and public in attendance got a first-hand look at Brisbane's new type 6 wildland fire vehicle.  This vehicle was acquired for its ability to traverse the hilly and tight upper streets of Brisbane and the hilly wildland terrain; it was built to be used in a wildland urban environment.  Unlike a normal fire engine, the type 6 has the ability to "pump and roll" and has the capacity to carry 350 gallons of water.  It is the first of its kind in San Mateo County, and we expect its aid and deployment to other parts of the region if needed.  For now, it will join Engine 81 at the Brisbane Fire Department.  Check out this video which was taken during last night's unveiling to learn more about Brisbane's new wildland type 6 vehicle.

Re-Painting Downtown Streetlight Poles

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Friday, March 9 - Work was completed earlier this week on Wedneday, 3/7.  A total of forty-seven downtown Brisbane lightpoles got a fresh new coat of "Brisbane Green" commercial-grade paint applied.  Tell us in the comments below what you think of the end result!

Before & After, San Francisco Ave.

UPDATE: Friday, March 2 - due to weather, the contractor is scheduled to return on Monday, March 5 to finish painting.

Starting tomorrow morning, a contractor that some in town may already be familiar with as they've been re-painting the decorative streetlights on the Northeast Ridge over the past couple of years - B.M. Lynn Painting - will be starting prep work in advance of re-painting the light poles on Visitacion. Please be aware of the No Parking signs as they are posted. The contractor will also be re-painting the streetlight poles along San Bruno Ave. and San Francisco Ave. - 47 in total! They do commercial and industrial painting, and are familiar with Brisbane. After the prep work is finished, they will proceed with the exterior painting so long as the weather conditions allow. We look forward to the "after" photo and extend our thanks in advance to the community for its patience as this work on our main drag gets completed!

Reception: "See You at the 7"

Printer-friendly version

In this exclusive art showcase to the City of Brisbane, the 160 year old 7 Mile House shares never before seen artifacts, maps, photographs, and pages from the first print of their self-published book ‘See You at the 7 - Stories From the Bay Area’s Last Original Mile House’.

The new book on 7 Mile House, Brisbane's oldest establishment and building, celebrates its intriguing history and how it came to be everyone’s favorite home “in the middle of nowhere”.

In 2004, Vanessa Garcia purchased the 7 Mile House, a dark dive in the outskirts of Brisbane, unaware of its history, the countless stories contained within its walls – and that, for the better part of the last 160 years, it was home to thousands of locals and travelers of all colors and persuasions.

The book is co-authored by Vanessa Garcia, and award-winning editor Regina Abuyuan, with a foreword by San Francisco Chronicle columnist Carl Nolte (Native Son).

A public reception will be held on Wednesday, April 18th from 6:00-8:00pm at City Hall in the Large Conference Room.  We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Watch City Meetings LIVE and On-Demand

Printer-friendly version

We want to remind you that anytime a public meeting is taking place, you are able to watch the live stream of it on your computer or mobile device.  From the City's homepage, www.brisbaneca.org, just click on the thumbnail of the Lagoon to be taken to the live streaming page to watch what's currently being broadcast over Ch. 27.  Ch. 27 is the City's Public, Education & Government (PEG) or community access channel, which is used to provide a convenient and information-rich resource for residents to access their city government.  To that end, footage of City Council, Planning Commission, and other local government meetings are streamed live with replays scheduled afterwards, City-sponsored and City co-sponsored events are promoted via the slides, and educational programming and movies that our PEG operator (MCTV) sources are played.

If you happen to miss the live meeting, you can always watch the meeting on-demand via the All Meetings page.  From the City's homepage, www.brisbaneca.org, just click on the thumbnail of the mic with the dais in the background to be taken directly to that page where you can easily search for the meeting you want to view.  (Note: sometimes, due to issues related to Comcast's transmitter, the audio or picture quality may not be very desirable when watching on Comcast/a TV.  For a better viewing experience, we recommend watching a meeting via the live stream).  For any questions related to our PEG channel, of if you have a community event you would like to have advertised on Ch. 27, please contact Senior Management Analyst Caroline Cheung at ccheung@brisbaneca.org .
