Clone of Recap of Parkside Pop-Up Event

Printer-friendly version

Thank you to all the community members who came to post their feedback on the various display boards this past Saturday, October 24, 2015 at the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop.  The event took place on Old County Rd. in conjunction with the Lions' Flu Shot Clinic and Pumpkin Patch, both of which were successful in their own right (the Lions sold out of pumpkins and 169 people got their flu shot, the most ever)!  We had a great turnout and conversations with many people interested about the upcoming plan.  Special thanks to the City Council and all the staff, including Police, Fire, Public Works, Parks and Rec, and of course the Community Development Department in their planning with consultant MIG for the workshop.  We look forward to more opportunities to engage with the community about the Parkside area!  To receive e-mail updates about the Parkside Precise Plan, please sign up to be added to the Parkside at Brisbane Village e-mail distribution list if you haven't already done so.

3 Special Events on 10/24

Printer-friendly version

Join the Brisbane Lions Club and the City for 3 special events in the heart of our downtown on Saturday, October 24!

The Lions will be holding their annual Flu Shot Clinic (free!) at the Senior Sunrise Room (2 Visitacion Ave.) from 9am - 12pm and their much-anticipated Pumpkin Patch under the Gazebo in the Community Park from 9am - 2pm (donations accepted).

Old County Rd. will be closed to traffic from the Brisbane Village Shopping Center (the businesses will remain accessible) to the Skatepark (Park Ln.) from 8am - 1pm for the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop, taking place from 10am - 12:30pm. The consultants want to stripe the roadway in different scenarios to give the public a more experiential take on how the entryway to town could look differently.  So, bring you own bike to ride (or walk) the various scenarios.  There will also be food (catered by Melissa's), live music, activities for kids (Storytime with Francisco from the Brisbane Library is from 10-10:30am and Capt. Jack Spareribs performs at 11a), face painting, pumpkin-decorating with stickers, and the antique fire truck will be out for tots (and adults) to take pictures with.  The workshop will take place from 10am - 12:30pm so be sure to get your flu shot, pick up your pumpkin, and provide your feedback at the Parkside Pop-Up Workshop!

Baylands Survey Results

Printer-friendly version

The Baylands survey consultants received 580 responses to the Baylands Survey, which ran from August 31 - September 12.  The Baylands survey results/raw data are now available for review.  The City Council will receive a presentation from the City’s survey consultants regarding these results on Tuesday, October 27th at 7:30pm in the Community Meeting Room, City Hall (50 Park Place, Brisbane).  This was a mail-in survey sent to all registered voters in Brisbane to gauge community opinions and attitudes on a number of issues pertaining to the Baylands and are an important factor in the City’s decision-making process for the Baylands.  Thank you to all who participated in it!

PG&E Night Work Update

Printer-friendly version

We first mentioned PG&E's night work taking place on Bayshore @ Valley on October 2nd.  The purpose of this 28-day project was for PG&E to determine if improvements were needed on a segment of their gas pipeline.  The City felt that more robust public outreach needed to be done prior to the work continuing, and thus required all work to cease until such was completed.  PG&E has since mailed out letters to the area in town (they should be arriving in mailboxes 10/13) most affected by the noise and a phone call is also being scheduled for tonight, indicating that work will be resuming on Tuesday, October 13th.  Going forward, work will be taking place Sundays - Thursdays, from 9pm - 5am, only. 

Only 1 to 2 nights of noise is expected, followed by a period of quiet as PG&E assesses their pipeline.  The construction work will affect the northbound traffic on Bayshore Blvd., with one lane of traffic maintained throughout the construction duration.  Please use caution when driving through the construction area.  For any questions about the project, please contact local PG&E representative Francisco Ybarra at (650) 730-7057.  Your patience and cooperation while the remainder of this project is completed is greatly appreciated.
