San Bruno voters approve the Economic Enhancement Initiative (Measure N)
San Bruno voters approved Measure N with 67.3 percent of the vote on November 4, 2014. Measure N adjusts zoning regulations to allow taller buildings, increased residential densities and above-ground, multi-story parking structures in the Transit Corridors Plan (TCP) area. The Measure N changes will help to implement the TCP, which provides a guide for revitalization of San Bruno’s downtown and the Caltrain Station areas including well-designed buildings, more housing, jobs, and shops, and new City revenues for vital public services, including public safety, parks and public infrastructure.

Police Department Public Service Announcement: Burglaries (video)
On January 28, 2014, the City of San Bruno asked residents and businesses to conserve water to help meet the 10% voluntary reduction goal that will help preserve both the valuable resources of the Hetch Hetchy watershed and our own local groundwater resources.
So far in 2014 residents have reduced their water consumption by 2% and all citywide users by 5%. The City is encouraged by these early results. However, if the 10% goal is not achieved, mandatory reduction requirements may be adopted.
The City will be offering a free water-saving landscaping class this coming Saturday, May 17, from 9:00am to noon, at the San Bruno Recreation Center. Furthermore, free low-flow shower heads, a 5-minute shower timer, as well as free bathroom and kitchen faucet aerators can be obtained at the City Hall Public Services counter.

PG&E Pipeline Integrity Management Program
Beginning December 2014 to January 2015, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will be performing an external corrosion assessment of the gas transmission pipelines in the City. The assessment will measure the electrical current on the pipeline to detect potential areas of corrosion. Work along the road is anticipated to occur between 9am – 4pm with pipeline testing between 2am – 4am to avoid electrical interferences to survey readings. Some traffic delays can be expected along Crestwood Avenue, San Bruno Avenue and Glenview Avenue. Please contact PG&E Customer Care Representative Austin Sharp at 650-730-4168 if you have any questions or concerns about this project.
