City Council Special Meeting this Monday, 2/11

Two resolutions regarding the Northeast Ridge will be discussed during this Monday’s City Council meeting, scheduled to begin promptly at 7:30 PM in the Community Center. The first has to do with certifying the 2007 Addendum to the 1983 Environmental Impact Report on the Northeast Ridge residential development, and addressing how the adverse impacts identified in the 1983 and 1989 Addendum would be reduced. The second resolution calls for approval of a modification to the Vesting Tentative Map (VTM), also regarding the Northeast Ridge residential development (Unit II). These resolutions are being brought before the City Council, with the basis that no new significant environmental effects would occur as a result of the changes proposed in the 2007 VTM. This is supported through the analysis contained in the environmental checklist, found in Appendix A of the 2007 Addendum.

The City of Brisbane is highly aware of its role as an environmental steward to the Conserved Habitat on the Mountain, which no doubt calls for additional funding if habitat conservation activities on the entire San Bruno Mountain are able to become reality. This, of course, is what all of us in Brisbane desire for the future of the Mountain…so join the discussion and let’s see how we can head in that direction, together as a community.

Following up from last week’s post on the sewage spill in Marin County, a few local beaches are still closed due to elevated levels of indicator bacteria. You can click here to see an interactive map of the status of the affected beaches.
