Very nice Post Joe.
We live in a Community. In order to "maintain" a Community means everyone has to do what they can to help the Whole. Not big things... just clearing a drain instead of calling Public Works. Believe it or not, those people have a lot to do. We need to do the best that we are capable of.
Pay it Forward.
Support our Public Works.
It is OK to pick up a piece of trash that is not yours because the "End Justifies the Means.
Thank you for the Post Joe.


I've mentioned the major amount of debris from the Eucalyptus trees on El Camino at Bellevue to several City officials. All it takes is one lit cigarette and then Burlingame will be in the news...drove by this morning (having mentioned this over the past two weeks to both fire and police personnel)...still a mess with tree bark draped over the power lines.
Hopefully it will get cleaned up in the near future.

While Public Works DOES have a lot to do, I would hope the people driving the street sweeper would give the drains on the corners a cleaning...they typically seem to miss these which becomes more problematic when there is rain.


I have watched Gerald maintain the sidewalk in front of Weimax for decades.
Thank you for caring Gerald.

Books, Inc. sweeps their sidewalk. Nice.


Re the flashing red light signals on ECR from San Bruno, down Millbrae all the way down to Menlo Park, they’re called Hawks. Best info, graphic and video is from here:

Re that light at Lincoln and ECR stopping intermittently, that is a nuisance but it does help people coming out of the ECR driveways. Otherwise, those poor people don’t stand a chance.

That Lincoln ECR corner is notorious for flooding, even when it’s not raining. The Apartment building on 1277 ECR spits out water into the gutter so there’s always ponding even in June.


Considering the "Big ECR Picture;" who really cares?
I would rather have "More Cowbell."


8:40 pm: Roadway will be closed in both directions on El Camino between Broadway and Carmelita in Burlingame due to a tree down

9:47 pm: It's open again
