Caltrain Construction Work

Printer-friendly version

Over the next several months, Caltrain will be performing work within the railroad right-of-way in Brisbane as part of the Advanced Signal System Project to upgrade the safety, performance, and operating efficiency of the Peninsula’s commuter rail system.  Day work that started on November 10th will continue May 26 – May 29, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., to identify utility lines and install/test fiber optic cable.  There is no night work scheduled for this period.

The Advanced Signal System, also called Communications Based Overlay Signal System (CBOSS) Positive Train Control (PTC) will equip the corridor with federally-mandated safety technology and increase system capacity to help accommodate future ridership demand. The Project will monitor and, if necessary, control train movement in the event of human error. This will increase safety by:

  • Eliminating the risk of train-to-train collisions
  • Reducing risk of potential derailments by enforcing speed limits
  • Providing additional safety for railroad workers on the tracks
  • Improving grade crossing performance to reduce gate downtime and improve local traffic circulation

The CBOSS PTC system is scheduled to be operational by 2015 and is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization Program, which will electrify the Caltrain Corridor by 2019.  An electrified Caltrain will be cleaner and quieter and will upgrade the system to provide faster and/or more frequent service to more stations and riders.

To implement the CBOSS PTC system, there are several installation phases (boring, conduit, fiber pulling, testing) that will occur within Caltrain's right-of-way, usually at night (8pm to 6am) in order to maintain regular train service.  Testing of the fiber cable and the overall system is scheduled for spring 2015.  Residents may experience some minor installation noise during this time.  For more information, please view the Caltrain's CBOSS PTC Project page or contact Caltrain at (650) 508-6499; e-mail: caltrainptc@samtrans.com .

SMC Energy Watch Challenge

Printer-friendly version

The San Mateo County Energy Watch (a C/CAG program to provide energy efficiency services) has developed an outreach campaign for small businesses.  To increase public awareness of the SMC Energy Watch turnkey program for small businesses, the Energy Watch is inviting elected officials to participate in a countywide cooperative challenge.  At last night's Council meeting, the City Council was in agreement to have Mayor O'Connell be the spokesperson for the City for the challenge.  The goal is to get 250 small businesses countywide to sign up for a no-cost energy survey from SMC Energy Watch by the end of June 2015.  Short testimonial videos from local businesses are available for viewing at www.smcenergywatch.com under "Success Stories".  One of the videos is highlighted below:

New Water Mandates in Effect

Printer-friendly version

Not only is over watering landscapes a turn off, it is now prohibited.  New water mandates went into effect on May 18, 2015 and the City will begin enforcing the new requirements on June 22, 2015.  Prior to June 22nd, the City will be sending out notifications by mail to all commercial and landscape accounts and publicizing the new watering schedule and upcoming enforcement on all of the City's communication channels, such as the City signboards, Ch. 27, and our social media pages, including Facebook, Twitter, Nextdoor and Instagram.  Essentially, the new regulations are:

  • You cannot water or use outdoor irrigation during or within 48 hours of measurable precipitation
  • Watering or outdoor irrigation must take place per the following 2 day/week schedule:
  1. ODD NUMBER ADDRESSES may only water on Mondays & Thursdays
  2. EVEN NUMBER ADDRESSES may only water on Tuesdays & Fridays
  • Landscapes can only be watered between 6pm - 9am
  • You cannot wash sidewalks, driveways, and hardscape with potable (drinking) water
  • Watering your outdoor landscape cannot result in runoff outside the landscape
  • When washing vehicles, you need to use a hose with an automatic shutoff  nozzle
  • All decorative fountains/features using potable water need to have a recirculating system

What requires a large amount of water of course are green lawns.  You may have noticed that many businesses in Crocker Industrial Park have lush green lawns, as this "garden-style, park-like" landscaping was part and parcel of the industrial park's design when it was built in the 1970s.  Watering of this type of ornamental landscaping, or turf, will need to be reduced by the businesses due to the new requirements.

Due to the fact that the City maintains the athletic fields and Community Park, we are ourselves one of the highest water users.  Therefore, the City has taken the following water conservation measures:

  • Outside irrigation has been turned off to all public medians and to the City Hall grounds, and reduced for the turf at the Crocker Park entry and that around the community signboard
  • All parks and ball fields are currently being irrigated on a 2 day/week schedule (the Community Park's irrigation system is also equipped with a controller which receives daily weather updates and adjusts the watering schedule accordingly)
  • Staff has been working directly with the HOAs and targeting high commercial water users, tracking their actual usage and identifying water savings potential through the Large Landscape Audit Program
  • Administering various rebate programs, including those for high efficiency toilets and rain barrels

If you have any questions about the new regulations, or see evidence of them being violated, please contact the Public Works Department immediately at (415) 508-2130.

Baylands Sustainability Framework Workshop

Printer-friendly version

The citizens of Brisbane have widely expressed the importance of sustainability and its application to the Brisbane Baylands project.  In response, the City Council in 2009 formed a Baylands Sustainability Committee, which is made up of one member each from the Planning Commission, Open Space and Ecology Committee, and Parks and Recreation Commission, and two members of the Brisbane City Council.  The Committee prepared a document called the Draft Baylands Sustainability Framework, which is organized around the ten One Plant Living principles developed by BioRegional (www.bioregional.com/oneplanetliving).  The purpose of the Sustainability Framework is to identify key sustainability principles to be addressed in future Baylands development, and to create an approach where these principles can be implemented.  Note: The principles, key performance indicators (KPIs), and implementation approaches are aspirational and are not intended as mandatory requirements for any future Baylands project.

The Committee’s goal is for the Sustainability Framework to inform the City Council’s decision-making process for the Baylands, which is anticipated to commence later this year.  The City Council will thus be holding a Baylands Sustainability Framework Workshop to discuss the draft Framework document on Monday, June 15th at City Hall starting at 8:00pm (the workshop will also be televised on Ch. 27 and streamed live on the City’s website (www.brisbaneca.org).   Feedback from the Planning Commission, Open Space and Ecology Committee, and Parks and Recreation Commission will be shared, and comments from the public will also be welcomed at this workshop.  Thank you for your attention and effort in this important matter.

National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

National Public Works Week (NPWW) is a celebration of the tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as Public Works.  The theme for this year's NPWW (May 17 - 23) is "Community Begins Here" which is so apt as it speaks to the essential nature of Public Works services in support of everyday quality of life.  A mix of maintenance, engineering and the administrative staff from the Public Works Dept. were present at last night's City Council meeting to recieve the Council's Proclamation recognizing their efforts to improve the City's infrastructure and provide quality public service to the Brisbane Community.  Thank you all for your hard work and dedication!

Meet the Economic Development Director

Printer-friendly version

At last night's City Council meeting, the Council unanimously approved a contract with MB Consulting for Economic Development services.  The "MB" in MB Consulting stands for none other than Mitch Bull, who you may know as the CEO & President of the Brisbane Chamber of Commerce.  Mitch will continue in his current role with the Chamber as he embarks on his newest endeavor as Economic Development Director for the City of Brisbane.  In this capacity, Mitch will be downstairs (vs. upstairs where the Chamber of Commerce office is located at City Hall), and spending approximately 12 hours/week as Ombudsman for new businesses that are looking to come into town where he'll be able to assist them when it comes time for permits and regulatory requirements, as well as stengthening the bridge between the City and the current businesses that have chosen to be here.  The Council is excited for this new partnership with Mitch and looks forward with anticipation to hearing the progress he makes in Brisbane!

Summer Concerts Line-up

Printer-friendly version

We're pround to announce the line-up for the 2015 Summer Concert Series!

July 3, The Hot Rods (Classic Oldies)

July 10, The Allmond Brothers Clan. (70's rock)

July 17, Andre Thierry (Zydeco)

July 24, Buffalo BBQ (Brisbane Locals Night)

July 31, Pop Fiction (Northern California's premier party band)

August 7, Hairstike (80's rock tribute band)

The Concerts are every Friday, July 3 through August 7. 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm in the Community Park (11 Old County Rd., Brisbane).

Probably THE most important aspect of the planning process is sponsorship, as this summertime tradition is only made possible due to the generous tax-deductible donations made by Brisbane businesses as well as local families who have come to eagerly anticipate the Concert Series each year.  Do you also enjoy the bands and think the Concerts add value to the community?  Then consider being a sponsor!  Sponsorship levels this year range from Platinum to Bronze, but all sponsors will be recognized by the City Council, in all City publications (print and online), and of course, on the concert banner that will be hung on the Gazebo in the Community Park which the bands play under.  Click here to show your support of Concerts in the Park or on the donor form below (click to enlarge).  If you have any questions, please contact Recreation Supervisor Steve Beaty at sbeaty@ci.brisbane.ca.us or (415) 508-2143.  Thank you in advance for your support of the Concerts!

101 SB Ramp Metering

Printer-friendly version

Back in November, we informed you about Caltrans' US 101 San Mateo County Ramp Metering Project between Hwy 92 and the San Mateo County/San Francisco County line to improve safety and travel times during peak periods of heavy traffic.  Starting tomorrow, Tuesday May 5, ramp meters will start cycling (or metering) during Southbound PM peak time from 2:30pm to 8:00pm.  The following Tuesday, May 12, ramp meters will start cycling during Southbound AM peak time from 6:00am to 10:00am.

Most ramps, like the ones at Beatty Ave., Lagoon Rd. and Airport/Bayshore Blvd. will operate at “1 car per green” except for one connector ramp which will operate at “2 cars per green”.  This connect ramp is the Hwy 92 to Southbound US 101 Connector.

For more information, including fact sheets and FAQs, please view Caltrans’ webpage on the San Mateo County Ramp Metering Project.  They’ve also set up a hotline to receive any feedback from the public.  That number is (510) 286-4531.

"Silver Dragon" Exercise

Printer-friendly version

Brisbane Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), assisted by Pacifica and Daly City CERT personnel, will participate in the San Mateo County Health Department’s “Silver Dragon” exercise on April 23, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon, to simulate the mass delivery of medicine and medical supplies to homes in Brisbane following a mass public health-related emergency.  Participation in the countywide exercise will assess readiness to provide timely medical assistance in the event of a major health emergency such as pandemic influenza, a food or water-borne illness, or the intentional release of a bio-agent.

This is the 9th year the exercise has been conducted in San Mateo County to test the Health System's ability to partner with local cities, law enforcement, fire departments, the American Red Cross and CERT teams for a simulated mass delivery of medicine from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Strategic National Stockpile,.  Validation of door-to-door distribution capabilities of medication during an actual health emergency will be accomplished by CERT teams distributing re-usable, eco-friendly shopping bags packed with educational information to approximately 1/3 of Brisbane residences.

Community Choice Aggregation

Printer-friendly version

At last night's City Council meeting, Seth Baruch, Program Consultant for the County of San Mateo, presented on the value of the County having a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program to potentially pool (or aggregate) the electricity demand within the County in order to purchase and potentially develop power on behalf of the local residents, businesses, and municipal facilities.  Click here or the image above to view his full Powerpoint presentation.  You can also watch his presentation on the City's website, which begins at approximately 6:35

On February 24, 2015 the Board of Supervisors approved funding to conduct a County-wide technical study to assess the feasibility of CCA for San Mateo County.  The technical study will:

  • determine the size of a potential CCA
  • forcast future energy demands
  • assess availability of renewable energy resources
  • assess the ability of a potential CCA to be competitive in short term and long term market conditions
  • develop different scenarios and predict their impact on greenhouse emission reduction, job creation, etc.
  • analyze potential risk in CCA formation 

The technical study is tentatively set to be completed by August 2015.  The results from the study will be used to determine if the County and any interested municipalities should form a CCA.  Also at last night's meeting, the Council appointed Councilmembers Liu and Conway to serve as the City's Representative and Alternate, respectively, on the newly formed Countywide Advisory Committee to provide input on matters relating to the formation, structure and governance of the Community Choice Aggregation Program.

If you'd like to read more about the CCA program, please view their Office of Sustainability's webpage, which also contains links to CCA Resources.  For any questions about the CCA program or the technical study that's currently being conducted, please contact Kirsten Pringle, Sustainability Fellow, at kpringle@smcgov.org or (650) 363-4088.

Comment on the Recology NOP

Printer-friendly version

Recology is proposing to modernize and expand its Tunnel Avenue facility straddling the Brisbane/San Francisco border to provide additional capacity to recycle and process different streams of refuse with the goal of completely eliminating waste materials going to a landfill.

The City of Brisbane will be preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to study the environmental impacts of the proposed project.  As the first step in this process, the City has published a Notice of Preparation (NOP) which identifies environmental topics to be addressed in the forthcoming EIR.  You are invited to review the NOP and comment on what environmental topics should be addressed in the forthcoming EIR.  Comments can be provided either electronically to RecologyNOP@ci.brisbane.ca.us, or by mail to:

John Swiecki, AICP
Community Development Director
City of Brisbane
50 Park Place
Brisbane, CA 94005
