Highlights: Keep Pacifica Beautiful Project Sponsors, Committee / Commission Recruitments, Art Showcases in Pacifica
Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

As I have been getting to know our residents, business owners and community groups since arriving in Pacifica, it comes through strongly that Pacificans share a deep appreciation for the natural beauty of Pacifica. It is also clear that Pacificans are committed to keeping Pacifica beautiful and undertaking projects that enhance beauty in our neighborhoods. Did you know that the City of Pacifica has a Beautification Task Force Plan and a Beautification Advisory Committee that is dedicated to carrying out this plan with an overall community beautification objective? You can get involved by applying for a position on the Beautification Advisory Committee (BAC) (click here for Recruitment Notice ), sponsoring a Keep Pacifica Beautiful project or attending a BAC meeting. Find more information on these opportunities below. Thank you to the individuals, businesses and community organizations that have sponsored completed beautification projects with the BAC. You will see the fruits of some of that labor in the photos below.

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

Sincerely,
KEVIN WOODHOUSE
City Manager
