Highlights: Federal and State Assistance for Storm Damage Repairs, 310 Esplanade Demolition Scheduled
Connect With Pacifica This Week

This week there is a lot of news about our emergency response activities.
On Wednesday we held a joint press conference with Congresswoman Jackie Speier to announce our success with State grants and with getting U.S. Army Corps of Engineers assistance with repair and mitigation projects.  See press release for more information.

We also announced today that the demolition of the apartment building located at 310 Esplanade Avenue has been scheduled for Monday, January 30.  See press release for more information.

I’m looking forward to enjoying the sun this weekend while it lasts! I'm sure our Public Works, Police and Fire staff are also thankful for a stretch of sunny days following recent storm fronts.  I so appreciate their hard work and long hours in preventing and responding to immediate storm impacts and keeping the community safe.

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