Measure N - Don’t Forget to Vote on November 4, 2014
San Bruno Economic Enhancement Initiative
The City Council placed the Economic Enhancement Initiative (Measure N) on the November 4, 2014 ballot. Measure N would implement the Transit Corridors Plan, which provides a guide for revitalization of San Bruno’s downtown area and major streets in proximity to the new Caltrain Station. If approved by San Bruno voters, Measure N would adjust outdated development regulations to encourage economic enhancement with well-designed buildings, more housing, jobs, and shops, and generate new City revenues for vital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.
