    The building next to the Eagles Club, the old 5 Star Cafe site, has been identified as the location for the new Brisbane Library. So, it will be demolished at some point in the near future. On Thursday, 4/7, the Council will be considering an Agreement for Professional Services for the Design of the new Library. Link to the staff report: http://www.brisbaneca.org/sites/default/files/14%20prof%20services%20library.pdf

    YES! The city needs to demolish their ugly decaying building right on Visitacion!! It certainly does not compliment this street OR this town at all. With such squalid buildings in our midst, it does nothing to encourage property owners to clean up their own places. I do not understand residents accepting this mess that is in our face every day and becomes a worse eyesore as the years go by!!

    The former 5 Star Cafe site, directly across the street from the current library, has been identified as the location for the new Brisbane Library. The City recently received $300,000 from the County’s Measure A funds to help cover building and design fees. This Thursday, 4/7, the City Council will be considering an Agreement for Professional Services for Design of the new Library. Link to the agenda can be found here: http://brisbaneca.org/city-council-meeting-9 (New Business item B.

    Years ago the plan was to expand the library to the downstairs area of the Community Center. I feel population won't grow much more because of our topography. There is access to great library materials through the Peninsula Library System. One can use their card, go to another library or use online for obtaining reading materials, etc. No one has ever mentioned what the monthly circulation of library materials are, that too is important. It is now centrally located and in a prime spot in Brisbane, why move it down the street a bit?

    I am sure vendors need more residents to shop at the Farmer's Market to make it worth their while to come to Brisbane. It would be nice to have a flower or the orchid vendor come before a holiday or now and then so residents don't have to go out of town. When the market first began it was said there were going to be twenty vendors, but the number is now way down now, probably because of lack of support from residents?

    Years ago there was an Art Street Fair in Brisbane. Visitacion Avenue was closed off and artists, local and visitors showed and sold their beautiful creations. The street was packed most of the day and there was also food vendors..Great idea to have a "Brisbane Day of Artists."

    First those who want to start a business here. first look for population and foot traffic and Brisbane does not have that! So now we exist with travelling elsewhere to do our purchases. During WWII Brisbane was bustling and ALL storefronts were occupied. Residents supported;grocery stores/woman's shop/ restaurants/shoe store/gift shop/cleaners/movie theater/creamery/radio shop/drug store/shoe maker/beauty shops/barbers/movie theater/bars/gas stations/plant nursery/cleaners/photo shop/pool hall--YES shops AND STORES! But, many did not own cars as we had a bus that went to Bayshore,plus the Greyhound. Those that owned cars couldn't use them as there was gas rationing. So these shops/stores were supported as they were needed. After the war, Brisbane slowly changed and it IS a "bedroom community." I hope things can change and we can have businesses on Visitacion Avenue again. But first please clean it up beginning with the filthy sidewalks and property owners sweep, or the city have a city sweeper. It would also help if debris wasn't tossed out into the gutters by inconsiderate people who constantly litter..let's bring some PRIDE back to Brisbane!!

    Hi Ray, thanks for your idea and apologies for the late reply! This idea would be perfect for the new Economic Development forum that will be replacing this current one. So, if you wouldn’t mind suggesting it again after Friday, 9/26, when the new forum is in place, I would appreciate it. We will be closing up this forum to get the site ready to take your specific Economic Development Ideas so they can be shared at an upcoming City Council Workshop…so you may want to also start thinking about your answers to…

    What do you like?
    What do you think should be enhanced?
    What things in the past do you think should be brought back?
    What things are missing from our town?
    What things do you not want to see in Brisbane?

    Again, the forum should be up and running by this Friday, the 26th. Thanks in advance for…

    great idea, also why not tear some vacant buildings down on Visitacion? AND the ones that need painting, encourage owners to do so.

    Hi Frank, thank you again for submitting your idea. Hopefully the last status update suggesting people to contact the Brisbane Police Dept. if a car has not moved in over 72 hours so that it can be tagged has helped with this issue. You can also send an anonymous tip to the Police by using this online form: http://www.brisbaneca.org/brisbane-contact-form
    Make sure to select: “Report an Illegally Parked Car” from the “I Want To…” menu.

    I wanted to let you and those that voted on your idea know that we will be closing up the ideas on this forum to get the site ready to take your Economic Development Ideas…so start thinking about your answers to…

    What do you like?
    What do you think should be enhanced?
    What things in the past do you think should be brought back?

    What things do you not…

    So four months have gone and still NOTHING has been done or police respond about derelict cars that are an eyesore. WHY ISN'T IT??

    Simple! If these cars/trucks, etc., just sit and are stored in front of houses, it IS a blight and eyesore. This makes the town look tacky. We DO have a vehicle code for that problem, but it NEEDS to be acted upon!

    Hi Ray,

    Thank you for submitting your idea to this public forum. It may be a good one for the new Economic Development Forum that we’ll be setting up later this week and should be live by this Friday the 26th. If you wouldn’t mind suggesting it again, so that the Council can see all of the community’s submitted ideas at the Economic Development Workshop taking place in November, I would appreciate it. Unfortunately, the current software only allows us to have 1 forum open at any given time.

    Best regards,
    Caroline Cheung

    It isn't just rental properties, but home owners also who neglect their property. The police need to enforce trucks/cars piled with junk that sit on the streets, and give tickets without residents having to call. There is little if any pride. I can think of peninsula cities where this is NEVER seen! Why here?
