Day in the Park Run-Down!

Printer-friendly version

There are a lot of changes this year for the City's Day in the Park Festival, taking place on the LAST SATURDAY IN SEPTEMBER THIS YEAR.  That's right, instead of the traditional 1st Saturday in October (which is the City's 55th Anniversary Celebration), the 30th Annual Day in the Park Festival will be happening on Saturday, September 24th from 8am - 3pm.  And there is so much fun to be had between those hours!  Because of all the activities and new additions this year, we wanted you to have the day-of schedule well in advance to acquaint yourself with the day's layout and festivities.  There will also be hardcopies available the day-of.  Note: if you happened to miss the New Brisbane Library Meeting where the current concept designs were shown, don't worry, they will also be on display at the Day in the Park.  Click on the brochure cover below to see what else will be filling the Community Park and Old County Rd. that day!

Brisbane's Sustainability Framework

Printer-friendly version

In November 2015 the Brisbane City Council officially accepted the Sustainability Framework for the Baylands (http://brisbaneca.org/baylands-sustainability-framework), a document that was the product of five years of effort by the Baylands Sustainability Committee, multiple drafts and numerous rounds of community review and feedback.  We wanted to share with you this article, which was recently featured in Western City, the monthly magazine of the League of California Cities (notably, this article appeared as part of an issue that was centered around the topic of Sustainability).  We are excited to see the Framework and its 10 principles being shared with other cities in the state!
