4th of July

Printer-friendly version

July and the Independence Day holiday are upon us - a time of fun, fireworks, and festivals. We hope you have a wonderful Independence Day on Tuesday!  In order to keep you, your family, pets, and neighbors safe, please consider the following tips as you put the finishing touches on your celebration:

Fireworks Safety: Per BMC, Section 15.44.090 - Fireworks are Prohibited in Brisbane.

Pet Safety: More pets get lost on July 4th than any other day of the year. Exercise your furry friends before the festivities and keep them inside as much as possible. If you need to take them out, ensure they have a tag with your contact information.  Lastly, common Fourth of July items such as alcoholic beverages, citronella candles, and glow sticks can be toxic to pets and should be stowed out of their reach.
 
Grilling Safety: Keep the grill out in the open and far away from anything that could catch fire: the house, deck, tree branches. Be sure to use long-handled tools especially made for grilling to keep the chef safe. Make sure children and pets stay far away from the grill, and always supervise the grill when in use.
 
Please note:  The Brisbane Community Pool will observe modified hours on Tuesday, July 4th.  The hours for lap swim and recreational swim are noted below.  Come and celebrate the 4th of July at the pool with us!

Lastly, please note: City Hall will be closed for Independence Day, with offices re-opening on July 5th for regular Wednesday business hours of 8am - 8pm.  Have a safe and celebratory 4th!

"We Are Still In" Open Letter

Printer-friendly version

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 5, 2017

CONTACT: Ben Rubin | brubin@climatenexus.org | 917-749-3694

**Press Call To Be Held 11 AM on 6/6 | Join Online**

Leaders in U.S. Economy Say “We Are Still In” on Paris Climate Agreement

Climate Declaration Represents 120 Million Americans and $6.2 Trillion of the U.S. Economy

 

Washington DC – A grand total of 1,219 governors, mayors, businesses, investors, and colleges and universities from across the U.S. or with significant operations in the U.S., representing the broadest cross section of the American economy yet assembled in pursuit of climate action, today declared their intent to continue to ensure the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing carbon emissions. 

Together, these leaders are sending a strong signal to the international community and the 194 other parties to the Paris Agreement about the continued commitment of the United States to ambitious action on climate change absent leadership at the federal level. In the aggregate, the signatories are delivering concrete emissions reductions that will help meet America's emissions pledge under the Paris Agreement.

Signatories include leaders from 125 cities, 9 states, 902 businesses and investors, and 183 colleges and universities. Participating cities and states represent 120 million Americans and contribute $6.2 trillion to the U.S. economy, and include Oregon and cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Houston as well as smaller cities like Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Dubuque, Iowa. A mixture of private universities, state schools and community colleges, both small and large, have added their institutions to the statement. In total the undersigned businesses and investors account for a total annual revenue of $1.4 trillion and include over 20 Fortune 500 companies, including Apple, eBay, Gap Inc., Google, Intel, Microsoft, and Nike, in addition to hundreds of small businesses, have also signed the statement.

The statement calls the Trump administration’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the climate accord “a grave mistake that endangers the American public and hurts America’s economic security and diplomatic reputation.” The signers all understand that the Paris Agreement is a blueprint for job creation, stability and global prosperity and that accelerating the United States’ clean energy transition is an opportunity – not a liability – to create jobs, spur innovation, promote trade and ensure American competitiveness. By declaring that “we are still in,” the signatories are putting the best interests of their constituents, customers, students and communities first while assuring the rest of the world that American leadership on climate change extends well beyond the federal government.

In addition to this statement, since President Trump’s announcement to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, at minimum 211 Climate Mayors have adopted the Paris Agreement goals for their cities, currently 13 Governors have formed the bipartisan Governor’s Climate Alliance, and at least 17 governors have released individual statements standing by Paris. Today’s statement embraces this rapidly growing movement of subnational and civil society leaders, by announcing that not only are these leaders stepping forward, they are stepping forward together.

To view the full statement, quotes and list of signatories, visit: www.WeAreStillIn.com

A press call will be held at 11 am on 6/6 to discuss We Are Still In and will include a reporter Q&A. 

 

Festival Tree Pruning

Printer-friendly version


During the week of June 5th, you can expect to see Humboldt Tree Service conducting some much-needed maintenance and pruning on the festival tree in the Community Park.  

Working from the top down, dead branches will be removed and others trimmed back to make the tree more symmetrical in appearance overall.  This type of trimming will reduce the general width of the tree by about one third, with most of the reduction being from the mid-section down, although the tree will remain the same height.  Pruning will encourage new growth on the tree and improve its overall appearance.

We thank you for your patience as the festival tree undergoes a makeover!

Yesterday, President Trump announced the United States' withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015.  Click on the image below to read a letter from Mayor Lori Liu, which expresses the City's committment to curbing global warming as we work together to support, lead, and uphold the commitments to the goals and measures of our Climate Action Plan.

Shrinking Shores Event in Half Moon Bay

Please join Sea Change San Mateo County for an informational event about sea level rise at Poplar Beach, hosted by the County of San Mateo and the City of Half Moon Bay.  The event is one of many events around the state that will be held in anticipation of World Oceans Day, (June 8), a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future.

At Poplar Beach on June 3, beachgoers will see a dramatic illustration about predicted ocean levels through the end of the century.  Temporary signs will be placed into the sand and on the bluffs to depict scenarios of future sea level rise and bluff erosion.  The City and County will staff a booth near the Poplar Beach parking lot where visitors can get information, ask questions, and learn about the science behind the predicted changes.  Poplar Beach is located at the end of Poplar Street, past Railroad Avenue in Half Moon Bay.

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 .
