Councilmember Lentz would like to host a meeting regarding airplane noise for concerned citizens on Wednesday, August 19th at 6pm at City Hall (50 Park Place, Brisbane) in the Community Meeting Room. He will be attending a SFO Roundtable Meeting earlier that day and would like to share the information that comes from that meeting with concerned citizens. If this is an issue you are concerned about, then please plan on attending.
The Community Center has been getting a facelift over the past couple of weeks with the installation of wainscot panels along the lower portion of the walls. This was needed to address the scuff marks on the walls left from the backs of chairs and the room's general heavy usage. A new chair rail was originally considered, but wainscoting was determined to be a great solution for covering up all of the imperfections along the lower section of the walls. Though considered a smaller project in terms of cost (the City Council funded this project with adoption of the 2015-16 budget), its impact is one that is more noticed, as the Community Center is widely used by many members of the community, including the Library, Seniors, Brisbane Dance Workshop, and other community clubs and organziations. We hope you enjoy the Community Center's new look with the traditional style of wainscoting!

A total of $7,514.25 has been raised by the Community through t-shirt sales, the Downtown Brisbane Car Show (which is back for a 3rd consecutive year on July 11, 2015), and other private donations. At their meeting on May 7, 2015, the City Council stated their support for the Community to raise a total of $36,000 to cover the extra features not included in the Skatepark’s Approved Concept Plan, such as a water fountain and its connection to the water main, landscaping and seating, more aesthetic fencing, and additional lighting. Taking into account the already-raised $7,514.25, the Mothers of Brisbane, who are spearheading the fundraising efforts, are estimating that the Community can raise another $12,500 through brick sales to arrive at $20,000 in cash donations. The remaining $16,000 they’re estimating will be met through in-kind donations such as asking for volunteers to assist with demolition of the current Skatepark, grading, drainage, and getting the water fountain installed. So please reserve your brick by August 1, 2015 (final day forms & payment will be accepted is Monday, August 3rd), which will be showcased at the Skatepark within the sidewalk just outside the park’s entrance. Thank you for your continued support of the Skatepark, which is scheduled to break ground this Fall!
Commit to a Brick Donor Form. Please bring to City Hall (Finance Dept.) with a check made out to the City of Brisbane.
In addition, look out for these coin/dollar collection jugs around town! There are forms to "Commit to a Brick" there but you would need to mail or drop off at City Hall.
This one is located in our amazing Brisbane Hardware Shop! Every little bit counts!

The City of Brisbane was selected by the Institute for Local Government (ILG) as being their Beacon Community of the Week. Many thanks to the Open Space and Ecology Committee and Public Works Department for ensuring that Brisbane is a leader in best practices for stormwater pollution prevention as well as takes advantage of oportunties to promote sustainability.
Brisbane is officially a participant in the Beacon Program, which is sponsored by the Institute for Local Government and the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative. The Beacon Program recognizes cities and counties statewide that are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy and adopt policies and programs that promote sustainability. If Brisbane is nominated for an award, it will be announced on October 1st at the League of Cities conference, taking place this year in San Jose, Sept. 30 - Oct. 2nd.
We wanted to assure Brisbane shuttle riders that you may still ride the Commute.org shuttles using the Jan-June 2015 sticker for the next 2 weeks. Afterwards, all riders will need to have the Jul-Dec. 2015 shuttle sticker displayed on their shuttle card. The City will be mailing out the July-Dec. 2015 stickers next week to all riders in the system, so rest assured! Thank you for using the free commuter shuttles and should you have any questions, please contact Commute.org at (650) 588-8171.
Peninsula SunShares is nearing its July 31st registration deadline and the City of Brisbane would like to encourage community members to sign up to find out if solar could be a good fit for your home.
The program launched in April and over the last four months more than 715 homeowners have enrolled. To date there are 100 projects being installed throughout the Bay Area totaling 440 kilowatts of reliable solar power. If you're curious where Brisbane stands, 25 homes have registered for the program and 8 systems have already been installed or are pending installation! The final deadline to take advantage of the program’s reduced pricing is the end of August when all contracts must be signed.
Together, we’re creating a planet run by the sun - faster!
Installing solar not only helps to support local greenhouse gas reduction and air quality goals that the City of Brisbane is working to achieve, but also helps you lock in low electricity rates for the next 20 years. Sounds pretty good, right? No wonder solar is the fastest growing source of energy in the U.S.
The City of Brisbane is participating in Peninsula SunShares with neighboring communities to pool the power of our community to get more competitive pricing from solar companies, while reducing the complexity of going solar.
If you live in the greater Bay Area and are a homeowner, you are eligible to participate. Learn more by visiting the program website: http://www.mygroupenergy.com/peninsula
- Sign up to receive a no-cost proposal from one of the program’s pre-selected contractors by July 31st.
- If you decide to move forward with your solar installation, sign your contract by August 31st to take advantage of federal tax credits that expire soon and the discounted program pricing.
- Help spread the word! More participants mean a better deal for you and more reliable solar power for our community.
