"See you at the 7" Book Reception

Printer-friendly version

Owner of Brisbane's historic 7 Mile House, Vanessa Garcia, was the reason City Hall was abuzz this past Wednesday evening, where a book reception was held in the large conference room in celebration of her new book, "See You at the 7: Stories from the Bay Area's Last Original Mile House".  The book is co-authored by award-winning editor Regina Abuyuan (also, Vanessa's cousin!), with a foreword by San Francisco Chronicle columnist Carl Nolte (Native Son). The book contains old maps of the area, historic photos, and interviews with locals who recount their experiences at 7 Mile House over the years.  Adorning the walls of the large conference room are framed prints of the book's signature (or very first) copy, along with artifacts that Vanessa has held onto over the fourteen years she's owned the restaurant, some of which stem from 7 Mile House's 160 years in existence.  Come and check out the exhibit, which will be on display through the spring. 

There is also a copy of Vanessa's book on display to thumb through.  But to order your very own copy, please click here.

Edible Gardening Workshop

Printer-friendly version

This past Wednesday, attendees at the BAWSCA Edible Landscaping Workshop learned how to reduce water needs in their gardens by growing edible vegetables that they could harvest all summer long.  The instructor, Suzanne Bontempo - professional horticulturalist, IPM advocate & environmental educator with over 20 years experience - started off her lecture by emphasizing "it all starts with the soil."  The class also went over how to use compost and cover crops.  Attendees were given various young potted edible vegetables to get themselves started.  Thank you to BAWSCA for bringing this workshop of theirs to Brisbane, which is sponsored by the City of Brisbane.  If you missed it, don't despair - there are others being held throughout the County throughout the Spring and Fall.  Check out their schedule of landscape classes here.

June 2018 Election Information

Printer-friendly version

The California Voter’s Choice Act is a new law passed in 2016 that will modernize elections in California by allowing counties to conduct elections under a new model which provides greater flexibility and convenience for voters.  The Statewide Direct Primary Election, taking place on June 5, 2018, will be the first time the new election model is enacted.

This new election model allows voters to choose how, when, and where to cast their ballot by:

  • Mailing every voter a ballot
  • Expanding in-person early voting
  • Allowing voters to cast a ballot at any vote center within their county

Brisbane City Hall (50 Park Place) will actually be one of the 30 Vote Centers that will be open June 2 – 5, three days prior to Election Day.  Its hours BEFORE Election Day will be 9am – 5pm and 7am – 8pm ON Election Day.  In accordance with the law, there will be 5 Vote Centers open for 10 days before Election Day and 4 Vote Centers open 29 days before Election Day.  Visit https://www.smcacre.org/vote-centers for more information.

Also important to note: The June 5, 2018 Statewide Direct Primary Election is an all-mailed ballot election.  Every eligible voter will be mailed a ballot and can vote by mail or cast their ballot in person at a Vote Center during the times and days specified above.  The first day Vote by Mail ballots will be mailed to registered voters in the County is May 7, 2018, with Ballot Drop-Off locations open throughout the County starting May 8th (there will be a Ballot Drop-off Box at Brisbane City Hall as well). 

Not registered to vote?  Visit https://www.smcacre.org/register-vote by May 21st to get registered online.  You can also register to vote via the mail (postmarked by May 21st).  Just complete a Voter Registration Form, which you can find at City Hall.  Note: you must re-register to vote if you change your name, address, or want to change your political affiliation (party).  Lastly, you can also register to vote or update your registration at any Vote Center location even on Election Day.  For more information, please contact the County’s Registration and Elections Division at (650) 312-5222.

What SB 35 Means for the City of Brisbane

Printer-friendly version

If you’ve been following reports on the State’s housing shortage, then you’ve likely heard mention of Senate Bill 35 (SB 35).  SB 35 was approved in 2017 and establishes a streamlined development review process for new multi-family residential projects that meet the requirements established in the legislation.  The intent of SB 35 is to promote the construction of new housing in California in response to historic trends where housing production has not kept pace with population growth.  You may be wondering if or how SB 35 affects Brisbane and the Baylands in particular.  This is the City’s view.

SB 35 Generally

Developers can utilize the streamlining provisions of SB 35 in any jurisdiction in California where housing production has not met or exceeded targets set by the State through what is called the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) process.  A vast majority of the 500+ cities and counties throughout the state are potentially subject to SB 35, as housing production targets have only been met in 13 jurisdictions statewide.  Regional application of SB 35 has been utilized in the Bay Area so far, with developers apparently invoking SB 35 to streamline the review process for three projects in the region to date.  These include a complex on the Vallco shopping center site in Cupertino (2,400 units, 1,200 affordable or low-income), another on 4th St. in West Berkeley (260 units, 130 affordable or low-income) and, just announced, a development on Bryant St. in San Francisco (130 units, 65 affordable or low-income).

To be subject to the SB 35 process, a residential project must qualify under a lengthy list of criteria.  Some of these include: a minimum percentage of units set aside for low income residents (up to 50% depending on the jurisdiction), adherence to construction labor standards pertaining to use of a skilled workforce and payment of prevailing wages, and compliance with all objective development standards established by the local jurisdiction.

There are also limitations on potential development sites where SB 35 can be applied.  Sites with environmental constraints such as hazardous materials contamination, flood zones, and wetlands are ineligible to utilize SB 35.  Additionally, SB 35-eligible sites must be infill (e.g., at least 75% surrounded by urban development) and zoned for residential uses.

SB 35’s Application to Brisbane and the Baylands

Recent housing production in Brisbane has not fully met state-imposed targets, so SB 35 applies to Brisbane.  However in regard to the Baylands, the Baylands is not zoned for residential uses and the site has toxic contamination which has not been remediated to allow for residential uses.  These two factors alone render the Baylands ineligible for SB 35 streamlining.  

If you’d like to sign up for email notifications about updates regarding the Baylands project, please sign up on the City’s website at: http://brisbaneca.org/baylands-email-list-sign-up-form.

PenTV's "The Game": Ep. 250

Printer-friendly version

A couple weeks ago, Mayor Clarke Conway and City Manager Clay Holstine were invited to be guests on PenTV's "The Game", a community show about local politics, sports, music, movies, and more.  They talked about the regional housing shortage, the complexity of the Baylands site with it being highly contaminated, and the desire for the Baylands to be cleaned up to a standard where a true residential neighborhood could one day exist.

Free Blood Pressure Checks

Talking Sustainability in Brisbane

Printer-friendly version

If you haven't already heard, April is Earth Month.  How fitting then that Brisbane's Sustainability Management Analyst Adrienne Etherton was recently interviewed at PenTV studios in San Carlos with the below segment running on their channel (Comcast Ch. 26) throughout the entire month of April.  Check it out: 

From the title, which alludes to Earth Day (April 21st), Adrienne speaks of how she's focused on addressing the City's Climate Action Plan and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the City.

Speaking of which, Adrienne cites the Feb. 14th grand opening of the City's first fast EV charger station which has been getting great usage in its first month.  She touched on other initiatives and strategies that the City will be tackling that keep greenhouse gas emissions low, which will be covered in greater depth in future posts focused on sustainability throughout this Earth Month!

In closing, as we are currently experiencing a small springtime shower, did you know that Brisbane has one of the lowest residential per-capita water use rates in the region at ~46-48 gallons per day?  The City has an ordinance prohibiting water waste, as well as a water-efficient landscaping ordinance that requires large landscape plans to show use of drought-tolerant plants and water-efficient irrigation.  We participate in regional water conservation programs offering rebates to qualified customers for high-efficiency toilets and rain barrels, offer landscape audits to our largest users, and coordinate water-efficient landscape classes and interactive school assemblies at BES.

Our next water-efficient landscape class will be held on Wednesday, April 18th at City Hall from 6-8pm.  It's in collaboration with BAWSCA (the Bay Area Water Supply & Conservation Agency) and is a hands-on workshop to learn all about water-wise edible gardening!  Register here: http://bawsca.org/conserve/programs/eventdetails/.

And of course, we'll be celebrating Earth Day on Saturday, April 21st by hosting a Habitat Restoration Day at Mission Blue Dr. &  Monarch Dr. from 9:30am-12:30pm.  We'll be restoring Brisbane's native habitat by removing invasing plant species.  Volunteers of all ages & abilities are welcome!  Free t-shirt and lunch included.

Happy Earth Month!  Let's make sure we do what we can to protect the precious resources we've got.

District 5 Citizen of the Year

Printer-friendly version

San Mateo County Supervisor David J. Canepa presented Brisbane Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Mitch Bull the District 5 Citizen of Year representing Brisbane at the "District 5 Together: A World United" culture and resource fair at Jefferson High School in Daly City this past Saturday, March 31. “Small business owners are vital economic engines and no one has championed small business growth in our communities like Mitch Bull.  His record speaks for itself,” Canepa said.  Congratulations, Mitch, on a recognition well-deserved!

Please Don't Use Rat Poison Outdoors

Printer-friendly version

A worthy reminder not to use rat/gopher poison/baits outside your home.  It directly affects beautiful creatures like this Red-tailed Hawk, who prey on rodents that may have eaten rat poison but are still alive.

At the end of January, a resident found this Red-tailed Hawk and called the Peninsula Humane Society (PHS) to have it picked up.  When she called back to see about its condition, she was told it had to be euthanized due to organ failure.  What caused the organ failure is unclear, but the PHS asked that residents be reminded that poison baits have this effect on hawks and owls.  So, please, do not use rat/gopher poison outside for any reason.  Should you have an indoor pest problem such as rats or mice, check out this fact sheet Finding a Company that can Prevent Pest Problems, which can be found on the San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program's website.  They also have a fact sheet dedicated to Keeping Rats and Mice Away from your Home.

Brisbane Baylands Update

Printer-friendly version

At their March 22, 2018 City Council Meeting, the Council made a motion that moved the Baylands project forward.  However, it did not come easily, and it did not come before listening to all of the community members that came to offer public comment.  These comments included personal sentiments, concerns, and things about the site that weighed heavily on their hearts and their minds.  The Council assured those in the room and those watching from home that they, staff, and the City’s legal counsel are very aware of the site’s contamination and that they have been working hard to educate and inform our state legislators of the various safety issues and complexities about the site which aren’t readily apparent from a search of the Baylands on Google Maps. 

Before making the motion, Councilmember O’Connell stated that “we know that it’s toxic land out there, and we know that if we’re the ones on the forefront, then we can actually make a difference and set some of the levels that we want in the performance standards that we need in order to be viable as a city and to be viable as an environmentally-conscious community.”  With that, she made the motion for staff to bring back a draft General Plan amendment for a Baylands development with a build out of 1,800-2,200 residential units (designated in the Operable Unit (OU-1) area located west of the railroad and north of Geneva Avenue (extended)) and up to 4 million square feet of commercial space; along with added performance standards and safeguards for environmental clean-up concerns and the City’s fiscal concerns. Councilmember Cunningham seconded the motion, with the rest of the Council voting 5-0 to adopt the motion.

New Brisbane Library Update

Printer-friendly version

At their March 15th City Council Meeting, the Council voted unanimously to release the final design, plans, and specs of the New Brisbane Library so that qualified contractors could begin to bid on it.  The bid period will be open for a few months, with the construction contract estimated to be awarded by the Council in June, and construction starting shortly thereafter.  Staff and Library architect, Siegel & Strain, are aiming for the New Brisbane Library to open in time for the Fall 2019 school year. 

The Council at that 3/15 meeting also approved a $1.7 million low-interest loan with the County of San Mateo.  Both of these items amount to huge steps forward in the overall project.  If you’re excited about seeing the New Brisbane Library become a reality, the Friends of the Brisbane Library are looking for donations to meet their fundraising goal of $100,000.  They are over a third of the way there, and are nearing the point where a design for the donor recognition wall will be determined (see below).  If you are interested in learning more or would like to make a donation, please visit www.fobl.info or contact Brisbane Library Branch Manager Francisco Vargas at vargas@smcl.org.

The location of the donor wall will be in the courtyard along the walkway between the library and the community room. This wall is approximately 17.5' long and 9.5' high.

EV Charger First Month Stats

Printer-friendly version
Curious to know what kind of use the new EV Charging station at the Brisbane Village Shopping Center has been getting?
 
Below are starts for its first month of activation (2/14/18-3/14/18):
  • 60 unique drivers
  • 2,590 total kWh dispensed, an average of 89.3 kWh/day
To meet the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s (BAAQMD) goal of 75,000 kWh in 3 years (the City received a grant through BAAQMD, which largely funded the charging station), we need to average ~68.5 kWh/day, so we are tracking ~30% above that currently.
 
And if you're curious about the individual charging sessions, here are some more stats:
  • 220 total sessions, 7.59 average sessions per day 
  • Average session length is 26:45 minutes, with 91+% of sessions 45 minutes or less
ChargePoint estimates we’ve avoided 1,075 kg of GHG emissions, the equivalent of planting 28 trees and letting them grow for 10 years.  Note: These estimates are very general and likely low for us considering our 100% GHG-free energy through PCE ECO100.
 
For those with Combo- or CHAdeMO-compatible EV's, keep charging away!

New Fire Vehicle for Brisbane

Printer-friendly version

Last night before the City Council meeting, the Council and public in attendance got a first-hand look at Brisbane's new type 6 wildland fire vehicle.  This vehicle was acquired for its ability to traverse the hilly and tight upper streets of Brisbane and the hilly wildland terrain; it was built to be used in a wildland urban environment.  Unlike a normal fire engine, the type 6 has the ability to "pump and roll" and has the capacity to carry 350 gallons of water.  It is the first of its kind in San Mateo County, and we expect its aid and deployment to other parts of the region if needed.  For now, it will join Engine 81 at the Brisbane Fire Department.  Check out this video which was taken during last night's unveiling to learn more about Brisbane's new wildland type 6 vehicle.

SF Bay Restoration Authority

The Board seeks committee members from all four Bay Area regions and with special subject matter expertise.

Subject Matter Expertise: Each member of the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee must possess expertise in one or more of the following subject matters:

  • Water quality,
  • Pollution reduction,
  • Habitat restoration,
  • Flood protection,
  • Improvement of public access to the bay, or
  • Financing of these objectives.

Factors that Determine Ineligibility for Membership: No person may serve on the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee who:

  • Is an elected official or government employee;
  • Has had or could have a financial interest in a decision of the Authority; or
  • Is affiliated with an organization associated with a member of the Governing Board.

Apply to serve on the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee by March 30, 2018.

Re-Painting Downtown Streetlight Poles

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Friday, March 9 - Work was completed earlier this week on Wedneday, 3/7.  A total of forty-seven downtown Brisbane lightpoles got a fresh new coat of "Brisbane Green" commercial-grade paint applied.  Tell us in the comments below what you think of the end result!

Before & After, San Francisco Ave.

UPDATE: Friday, March 2 - due to weather, the contractor is scheduled to return on Monday, March 5 to finish painting.

Starting tomorrow morning, a contractor that some in town may already be familiar with as they've been re-painting the decorative streetlights on the Northeast Ridge over the past couple of years - B.M. Lynn Painting - will be starting prep work in advance of re-painting the light poles on Visitacion. Please be aware of the No Parking signs as they are posted. The contractor will also be re-painting the streetlight poles along San Bruno Ave. and San Francisco Ave. - 47 in total! They do commercial and industrial painting, and are familiar with Brisbane. After the prep work is finished, they will proceed with the exterior painting so long as the weather conditions allow. We look forward to the "after" photo and extend our thanks in advance to the community for its patience as this work on our main drag gets completed!
