Events Scheduled to Sweep Through Brisbane…

The 64th annual Monte Carlo Night will be coming to the Mission Blue Center tomorrow night, from 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm. Don’t miss out on the Las Vegas Strip coming exclusively to you! The Brisbane Parks & Recreation Department will be making sure the community enjoys an enchanting evening which will include a full beer and wine no-host bar, live music, and of course, plenty of scrumptious snacks throughout the evening. Hope to see you there!

Also, plan on attending this coming Monday’s meeting at the Community Center (7:30 pm) where the topic of discussion will be updating the Local Economic Development chapter of the City’s General Plan. Learn about your City’s Tax Base and General Fund Revenues, Employment Opportunities, Environment & Natural Resources, and which of these areas Staff recommends for Council to review as this second elective chapter of Brisbane’s General Plan is brought up-to-date.

Lastly, several guest speakers have committed to join the City during this time where updates to the General Plan are being made. We are excited to have them share with us their expertise regarding some highly relevant issues…of which include the 3 E’s of Sustainability – economics, environment, and social equity. You may want to mark your calendars for these dates…
