Please find below the notice of public information meeting regarding permit modification of San Francisco Transfer Recycling Center (Recology) located at 501 Tunnel Ave., San Francisco, CA 94134. The meeting is taking place on Tuesday, April 11 at 6:00pm at The John A. Legnitto Environmental Learning Center (401 Tunnel Ave., San Francisco).
Have you taken a stroll along Crocker Park Trail before? It's a 2.25 mile existing former railroad right-of-way located in the Industrial Park, passing directly behind many of the businesses along Valley Drive, the "spine" of the industrial park. The trailhead is located on Park Lane directly across the street from the Dog Park and adjacent to the Purcell Murray business. There are also five street intersections where you can hop onto the trail, designated by the green dots on the map below (click to enlarge):
The City recently applied for and were recommended to receive grant funding from the federally funded One Bay Area Grant Cycle 2 (OBAG 2) to install stabilized decomposed granite surfacing over the railroad ballast rock to make the trail passable to pedestrian and bicycle commuters/users, including those using wheeled transportation and parents with strollers.
Project criteria included proximity to a Planned Development Area (PDA), as designated by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), the regional planning agency that is complementary to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission or MTC (who administers the federal grant for our area), and location of a project in or in close proximity to a Priority Development Area (PDA) with affordable housing preservation strategies. Project selection for our county was administered by C/CAG (City/County Association of Governments). At first, the C/CAG Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee recommended not funding the Crocker Trail project, but Brisbane Councilmember Cliff Lentz made an appeal to the C/CAG Board to fund the project despite the recommendation, with the information that Brisbane’s Parkside Precise Plan (which plans for 228 units) would very likely be adopted by Council this year, and that the Plan will also meet the city’s RHNA allocation for affordable housing sites.
Deputy Public Works Director Karen Kinser presented information about the project to the C/CAG Board at their March 9th meeting, and how it meets many of the funding criteria. Also in attendance at that meeting were Lipman Middle School’s Safe Routes to Schools Program Manager Michelle Chan, Brisbane Parks and Recreation Commissioner Renee Marmion, and a representative from the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, who all spoke in favor of the project. For instance, Michelle Chan spoke about how an improved path would provide a safe connection between a residential development (Landmark and Altamar subdivisions of the Northeast Ridge) and Lipman Middle School, where a low percentage of students currently walk or bike. In the end, a majority of the C/CAG Board voted to fund the project for $885,300 (total estimated cost of the project is $1,000,000).
The improved path will facilitate short trips from residential areas to the center of town and activity centers, such as parks, the library, transit stops, and future development in the Priority Development Area. The funding process will allow for construction to take place in the coming year. Kudos to all those involved in the city receiving this funding and for improvements to Crocker Park Trail able to take place!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
