Highlights: Cannabis Business Program - Council to Discuss Amendments, Recruiting Volunteers for Pacifica Committees and Commissions, San Jose Overcrossing Closure
Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

Happy kick-off to 2019! At the upcoming City Council meeting on Monday, January 14, the City Council will discuss potential amendments to the City’s Cannabis Business Program ordinances. The City is currently undertaking the permitting process for four different cannabis retail businesses, one of which is already open and operating. During this implementation process, numerous potential program amendments have been raised to the Council’s attention. Monday’s discussion will focus on getting further direction from the Council on various options before City staff drafts any ordinance amendments and returns to the Council for future consideration. The staff report is available here .

If you are interested in becoming more involved in our city's future, City of Pacifica has openings on several of its Committees/Commissions. This is a great way to lend your voice and make an impact on your community. We now have open recruitments on the Parks, Beaches, and Recreation Commission, the Beautification Advisory Committee, and the Planning Commission. Learn more and apply here .

Please let me know if you have comments or questions, and  thank you  for wanting to  Connect with Pacifica !

Sincerely,
KEVIN WOODHOUSE
City Manager
