Fresh Fish Coming to Farmers Market

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Tuesday, 5/23 - Maynard will have a one-time introductory price of $9/lb. for fresh black cod or miso butter fish fillets and steaks.  He will also have fish heads and collars available for around $4/lb.

At yesterday's Farmers Market, Capt. Maynard Webb of Dragon Baby Seafood had his tent set up and talked to folks passing by to see if they would be interested in him bringing fresh fish to next week's market.  There were enough people who expressed an interest in his fish, so he'll be back on Thursday, May 25th -- be sure to pay Maynard a visit if you're interested in trying out his fresh, local ocean fish!  In the meantime, check out this video produced by a customer of his and see for yourself how fresh Maynard's product is (and how hard a fisherman works!):

 

3 Feet for Safety Act

Printer-friendly version

Since September 2014, it has been State law (California Vehicle Code section 21760) for drivers to maintain a minimum 3-foot buffer when passing a bicyclist in the same direction.  The law is designed to reduce car-bicycle crashes by reminding drivers to give bicyclists more safe space when passing.  A 3-foot passing distance gives bicyclists, motorists and law enforcement a clear sense of what is safe.  If you’re unsure about whether or not you’re giving a bicyclist enough space, it’s best to change lanes before passing them.  For more information about this State law, please visit https://bikeeastbay.org/GiveMeThree.

The Brisbane Police Department also made a video to explain this law.  Check it out on their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BrisbanePD .

Construction on Bayshore Now Starts 5/1

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Thursday, May 11, 12:30pm - The Cold In-Place Recycling contractor is on schedule to complete their resurfacing work by the end of today.  Crews will return next week to stripe the roadway.  Please note: the posted speed limit in the construction area is 25 mph.  We're nearing the end of this project - thank you to the public for your patience as this project is completed!  Should you have any questions about the work, please contact the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.

UPDATE: Thursday, May 4, 10:30am - The most impactful part of the paving work on Bayshore has been completed early, thanks to the nice, warm weather we've experienced this week!  Crews will still be on-site today and tomorrow as well as next week to complete the work and stripe the roadway.  Thanks for your patience!

****************

Cold In-Place Recycling work is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 1st.

The City’s contractor, Interstate Grading and Paving, and their subcontractor, Pavement Recycling Systems, are scheduled to begin the Cold-in-Place Recycling (CIR) work on Bayshore Blvd. from approximately 600 ft. south of Old County Road to the southern city limits, starting next Monday, May 1st.  Because of the curing time required for this sustainable, greenhouse gas emission-reducing method of rehabilitating existing deteriorated pavement, we have allowed the contractor to close the lane they are working in from the hours of 7 am to 6 pm.  Typically, we only allow lane closures on Bayshore Blvd. outside of commute times, i.e. between 9 am and 4 pm, so we do anticipate some delays, and are encouraging motorists to use alternate routes if possible.  The CIR work is anticipated to take four to five days, one day or morning to test their method, and one day for each of the travel lanes on Bayshore (two each northbound and two each southbound).
 
The CIR operation requires a “train” of several piece of equipment that is approximately 150 ft. in length (see right).  When this “train” crosses the intersections of Bayshore Blvd. and San Bruno Ave., traffic will be delayed for a period of time.  Again, we encourage people to take alternate routes should they not wish to be delayed.
 
Emergency access will be provided as needed.

Thank you for your patience as this project is completed.  The result will be a nice, smooth, and nicely-surfaced Bayshore Blvd.!

Firth Canyon Restoration

Printer-friendly version

The City's land restoration contractor, Shelterbelt, will be removing invasives from Firth Canyon, beginning Monday May 1st - 19th.  There will be a crew and equipment in the area during that time while their work is being completed.  They will be removing invasive plant species such as broom, ivy, and cherry plum brush, as well as installing erosion control.  We do not foresee Shelterbelt's work causing any disruptions, but should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.

Appointments in City Manager's Office

Printer-friendly version

Earlier this week, City Manager Clay Holstine announced two appointments he had made in his office.

Ingrid Padilla (pictured left) has been appointed as City Clerk, who, in large part connects the City Council, Commissions, Committees, and city staff with the Brisbane citizens they serve.  Ingrid will also administer democratic processes such as elections, access to city records, and all legislative actions ensuring transparency to the public.  She acts as a compliance officer for federal, state, and local statutes including the Political Reform Act, the Brown Act, and the Public Records Act and will arrange for ceremonial and official functions.

Angel Ibarra (pictured below) has been appointed as Administrative Management Analyst.  You may recognize her from the Planning Department where she assisted with plan checks and interfaced with many community members in issuing building permits and answering building code inquiries, in addition to providing staff support to the Planning Commission.  She will be working with Clay on special projects, backing Ingrid up on City Clerk duties, and another friendly face to greet you in the City Manager's Office.

Both Ingrid and Angel bring broad experiences and enthusiasm to their new assignments and we know they will serve the citizens of Brisbane well!

County Releases Draft Sea Level Rise Report

Printer-friendly version

The County this past week released the San Mateo County Draft Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment, a tool to guide the County and its cities in understanding and preparing for sea level rise.  Funded through a grant from the California State Coastal Conservancy, the Draft Assessment is an effort of Sea Change SMC, the County’s sea level rise initiative administered through the Office of Sustainability. 

Using best available sea level rise modeling and local data, the Draft Assessment provides an overview of how flooding and erosion from sea level rise could affect the County and its cities.  Specifically, the report includes an analysis of which assets (such as highways, hospitals, and parks) and communities are at risk from different amounts of sea level rise; detailed case studies on 30 representative assets (Asset Vulnerability Profiles); and chapters on adaptation planning and next steps.  As a reminder, the case studies are not a prioritized list of the most vulnerable assets, but rather meant to be representative of the different types of assets in the County and to provide a template to further evaluate vulnerability.  The report aims to increase awareness of the issue countywide and to provide a foundation for planning and projects that increase resilience and reduce risks.

The Draft Assessment can be downloaded here. The official press release announcing the release of the Draft Assessment can be viewed here

The County appreciates the public's engagement in this process, and look forward to your comments and feedback. The comment period will last until May 5th and all comments must be submitted using this online Comment Submission Form.

The County is also holding a number of workshops/presentations that offer an opportunity to learn more about the Draft Assessment and next steps, and ask clarifying questions.  For more information on upcoming events and to RSVP for the public workshops, click here.  They are also listed out below:

Grant Funding Received for Crocker Park Trail

Printer-friendly version

Have you taken a stroll along Crocker Park Trail before?  It's a 2.25 mile existing former railroad right-of-way located in the Industrial Park, passing directly behind many of the businesses along Valley Drive, the "spine" of the industrial park.  The trailhead is located on Park Lane directly across the street from the Dog Park and adjacent to the Purcell Murray business.  There are also five street intersections where you can hop onto the trail, designated by the green dots on the map below (click to enlarge):

The City recently applied for and were recommended to receive grant funding from the federally funded One Bay Area Grant Cycle 2 (OBAG 2) to install stabilized decomposed granite surfacing over the railroad ballast rock to make the trail passable to pedestrian and bicycle commuters/users, including those using wheeled transportation and parents with strollers.

Project criteria included proximity to a Planned Development Area (PDA), as designated by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), the regional planning agency that is complementary to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission or MTC (who administers the federal grant for our area), and location of a project in or in close proximity to a Priority Development Area (PDA) with affordable housing preservation strategies.  Project selection for our county was administered by C/CAG (City/County Association of Governments).  At first, the C/CAG Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee recommended not funding the Crocker Trail project, but Brisbane Councilmember Cliff Lentz made an appeal to the C/CAG Board to fund the project despite the recommendation, with the information that Brisbane’s Parkside Precise Plan (which plans for 228 units) would very likely be adopted by Council this year, and that the Plan will also meet the city’s RHNA allocation for affordable housing sites.

Deputy Public Works Director Karen Kinser presented information about the project to the C/CAG Board at their March 9th meeting, and how it meets many of the funding criteria.  Also in attendance at that meeting were Lipman Middle School’s Safe Routes to Schools Program Manager Michelle Chan, Brisbane Parks and Recreation Commissioner Renee Marmion, and a representative from the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, who all spoke in favor of the project.  For instance, Michelle Chan spoke about how an improved path would provide a safe connection between a residential development (Landmark and Altamar subdivisions of the Northeast Ridge) and Lipman Middle School, where a low percentage of students currently walk or bike.  In the end, a majority of the C/CAG Board voted to fund the project for $885,300 (total estimated cost of the project is $1,000,000).

The improved path will facilitate short trips from residential areas to the center of town and activity centers, such as parks, the library, transit stops, and future development in the Priority Development Area.  The funding process will allow for construction to take place in the coming year.  Kudos to all those involved in the city receiving this funding and for improvements to Crocker Park Trail able to take place!
