Bike & Ped Advisory Committee

Printer-friendly version

The City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) of San Mateo County currently has four vacant seats for public members on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC).  The BPAC provides advice and recommendations to the C/CAG Board of Directors on all matters relating to bicycle and pedestrian facilities planning and on the selection of projects for state and federal funding.

Applicants must be a resident of San Mateo County. The appointment term is for two years.  The C/CAG Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee generally meets on the fourth Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at San Mateo City Hall.  The BPAC has approximately six meetings per year.

The BPAC only allows for two members, either elected or public, that reside in any particular jurisdiction (City or Unincorporated San Mateo County).  There are currently two members that reside in the City of San Bruno and in Unincorporated San Mateo County.  As a result, no new members from either San Bruno or Unincorporated San Mateo County can be appointed at this time.

Interested parties should complete the BPAC Membership Application and return it to Tom Madalena at tmadalena@smcgov.org by January 15, 2016.

Undergrounding Sewer Line

Printer-friendly version

Beginning November 16th, the City's contractor will be starting work on undergrounding the 8" sanitary sewer force main on Bayshore Blvd.  The work zone, as shown in the map below, will be in-between Guadalupe Canyon Pkwy and Valley Drive.  This project is expected to last through mid-December.


Click to enlarge
 

Proper undergrounding and enhanced relocation of this sewer line will allow for better protection of this facility for the future.  Work hours for this project will take place from 9am - 4pm.  To be mindful of the cycling community, a bike lane detour from Guadalupe Canyon Pkwy > North Hill > Valley will be established.  There will be periodic shutdowns of the right-hand lane going southbound on Bayshore.  Please drive and carefully through the work area.  This is one of four Capital Improvement Projects which are being funded through the new Capital Projects Charge approved by the Council on November 20, 2014.  If you have any questions about this project, please call the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.

Winter Clean Up 11/14-15

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Friday, 11/20 - Thank you to all who participated in last weekend's Winter Clean Up.  SSF Scavengers picked up 34 loads, equivalent to 13 tons of green waste!

The Annual Winter Clean Up is November 14 & 15.  Please take advantage of the large dumpters provided by SSF Scavengers that will be placed throughout town for residents to dispose of their yard waste.  Click here to view the locations of the dumpsters.  Please place your yard trimmings and branches (less than 4" in diameter), and NOT within plastic bags, into the nearest-located dumpster.  SSF Scavengers will be coming to empty the dumpsters throughout the weekend to prevent them from becoming over-filled.  If you need assistance, the City will have limited staff available to transport your yard waste to one of the dumpsters. 

Please call (415) 508-2146 during the following times only:

  • Saturday, November 14, 10am - 3pm
  • Sunday, November 15, 9am - 1pm

Remember, Winter Clean Up is for YARD WASTE ONLY (leaves, branches, grass).  NO GARBAGE OR OTHER WASTE is to be disposed of in these dumpsters.  Doing so will make the entire load unrecyclable.  Thank you in advance for your willingness and cooperation in this City-wide effort!

Did you know the City has an Adopt-A-Drain program, allowing residents to "adopt" the storms drain(s) nearest their homes and help keep it clear of leaves and debris.  The rainfall we had earlier this week served as a good reminder that the storm drains need to be clear of trash and leaves.  A clean storm drain prevents flooding, improves traffic flow, and maintains pedestrian access, especially for children, those with disabilities, and the elderly.  If you are interested in "officially" adopting the storm drains nearest your home, please click here for more information.  It would also be a fun activity to do with your kids while at the same time teaching them how we can each play a part in the safety and beauty of our city.

Veterans Remembrance Event

Printer-friendly version

Attendees at this morning's special Veterans' Remembrance Event at the flagpole outside City Hall were greeted with sunshine and warmth as we honored all those who served our country in the armed forces.  We were especially honored to have with us in attendance Charles "Chuck" Blunt (age 93) and wife Helen, as well as Roy Peters (age 98).  Both men served in WWII and have stories and were full of stories, laughter and advice!  Councilmember Conway led attendees through a remembrance ceremony, which included the raising of the flag.  See more photos of today's special event here.
