Highlights: Public Hearing on Marijuana, Palmetto Streetscape Groundbreaking, Illegal Fireworks Social Ordinance, 4th of July Rocket Run & Celebration
Connect With Pacifica This Week

As I discussed in my message to you last week, future marijuana sales in Pacifica will be on the agenda at Monday night’s City Council meeting. The Council will consider an ordinance that, if enacted, would allow for retail sales early next year. In addition, your local elected officials will consider whether to place an excise measure on the ballot this November. Everyone is invited to participate in the public process.

You can also be a part of the process by being a member of one of your committees or commissions. There are currently openings to apply for on the Planning Commission, Beautification Advisory Committee and the Parks, Beaches & Recreation Commission. Deadlines to apply are fast approaching. Contact the City Clerk’s Office or get an application on the City website.

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