#NoOnSB649 Video,Telecom Power Grab

Printer-friendly version

City and county leaders and others are urging the Legislature to reject legislation that would severely limit local input on where telecommunications companies could install wireless equipment on public infrastructure. It also puts an arbitrary cap on reimbursement for the use of public property. Over 215 cities and dozens of counties oppose SB 649.

SB 649 would give the wireless giants virtually limitless ability to install antennas, wireless boosters, and other equipment wherever they want — on any publicly owned street light, traffic-signal pole, or any wood poles with electricity, cable, or telephone lines attached. The bill would shortchange taxpayers, and disproportionately hurt those living in rural and inland communities by increasing the Digital Divide, while stripping power from inland and rural local leaders. Meanwhile, Californians would still pay the same high prices for their wireless services.

8/17 & 8/31 Baylands Meetings Postponed

Printer-friendly version

In the August STAR newsletter, which went to print in late July, a Baylands Deliberations Schedule was included, listing out August meeting dates of August 7 (Meeting #3), August 17 (Meeting #4), and August 31 (Meeting #5).  Just prior to the August 7th meeting, our Sacramento-based law firm informed us that legislative negotiators had reportedly reached a tentative agreement on a package of bills impacting local government land use decisions.  City staff is working with the Sacramento law firm and is ready to analyze the legislative package as to its potential relevance to the City and will report that back to the Council, who wishes to receive that analysis before continuing its discussions and deliberations on any particular land use plan for the Baylands.

Therefore, the August 17th and August 31st meetings have been postponed until more clarification and understanding of the State legislative package is made public and analyzed by staff.  Stay tuned for more information; sign up for weekly website updates from the City to be informed when the next Baylands deliberations meetings are scheduled or follow us on social media – Facebook (www.facebook.com/brisbane94005), Twitter (www.twitter.com/brisbaneca), and Instagram (www.instagram.com/cityofbrisbaneca).

SunShares - Simple. Affordable. Together.

Printer-friendly version

Fifty cities and major employers have joined forces to spread clean energy and fight climate change by securing group discounts on solar and electric vehicles for residents of the greater Bay Area.  The City of Brisbane is, for the third year in a row now, a participating agency in the SunShares program.  That means all those who live or work in Brisbane are eligible for the discounts…and there are options for everyone – homeowners, renters, and drivers included!  A community evaluation committee selected the following vendors following a competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process: PetersenDean Roofing and Solar, SkyTech Solar, Sunpower by Solar Technologies, San Francisco Toyota, and Premier Nissan of San Jose and Nissan San Francisco.  More information about the selected vendors and discounts being offered can be found on www.bayareasunshares.org.  Be sure to sign up to receive more information, including a no-obligation consultation for solar, and with pricing starting at 15% below market rates.  Now, more than ever, is the time to switch to renewable energy.  Sign up before November 10th to take advantage of the discounts on solar and electric vehicles!

High School Bus Information

Printer-friendly version

The City of Brisbane and the Jefferson Union High School District (Terra Nova and Oceana) have collaborated to provide transportation for students that live in town.  The first day of school for the District is Thursday, August 10th.  The bus will be picking up students at the same location and time as previous years - 7:00am at 50 Park Place, Brisbane.  As described in the District's letter to parents, transportation will be free for the first two weeks of school.  During that time, the District will compile a list of bus riders and collect the fees.  Fees will be due by August 26, 2017 and the District will issue a bus pass to your student upon payment.  A signed 2017-18 application form accepting the bus conduct rules must also be returned to the JUHSD (Terra Nova or Oceana) by the same date.  If you have any questions, please contact the JUHSD at (650) 550-7580.

Thank you to all who attended this past Tuesday's National Night Out with our Police, Fire, and OES departments!  We hope you were able to better connect not only with representatives from these departments, but your fellow neighbors, as well.  Off to the side of the main event, which took place at the picnic tables in the Community Park, was OES Director Randy Breault doing a Q&A with Skyler Hallgren of The Earthquake Bag.  Randy was answering community members' questions sent in about disaster preparedness as well as some questions that were posed during the Facebook Live event.  In case you missed it, here's their full interview:

The City and The Earthquake Bag are partnering to help ensure that every resident has the supplies they need for the next major earthquake.  Place your order before Aug. 20th and get $20 off using promo code: Brisbane20

Know that $5 from your order will be donated to Brisbane Disaster Prep + Relief Programs including CERT & The Lions Club.  Thank you, gentlemen, for helping our residents get better informed and ready for the next "big one"!

Ord. 617 RE: Cannabis

Printer-friendly version

At last night's City Council meeting, the City Council voted 4-1 to introduce Ord. 617 as amended to allow cannabis-related businesses in some commercial districts in Brisbane.  These businesses include laboratory testing, warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, and delivery-only retail (walk-up retail establishments not allowed).  A Conditional Use Permit will be required for cannabis-related warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, and deliver-only retail, so the City can understand how the business works before a permit is issued.  Testing laboratories may require a Conditional Use Permit as well, depending on the districit they're located in within the city.

The Ordinance also establishes performance standards for the personal cultivation of medicinal and adult-use ("recreational") cannabis for personal consumption by eligible patients or adults 21 years or older on residential properties, consistent with State law requirements. No commercial cultivation of cannabis will be allowed in Brisbane.

The second reading of the ordinance is scheduled for the Council's September 7th meeting, with the ordinance taking effect in October (30 days after adoption). Businesses must wait until the ordinance is in effect to apply for a Conditional Use Permit.

Questions?  Contact the Community Development Department at (415) 508-2120 or email planning@ci.brisbane.ca.us.

Website Maintenance

Printer-friendly version

We want to apologize for the website being offline last weekend for one day and 14 hours.  We regularly add new pages to the website and during a period of re-indexing itself, the website went into maintenance mode and switched itself to "offline".  The City's current website is over 2,700 pages large, so city staff is in the process of removing older content such as a Day in the Park post from 2013 in order to take some load off of the website.  We are also improving the Search settings within the website and have added the ability to use Google's search mechanism if desired.  See below image:

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and disruption for the City’s website being offline for a period of time last weekend.  We feel confident that the actions made over the weekend to bring the site back, plus on-going efforts to “de-clutter” the site will all help to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
