UP Task Force Applications
The Unhoused in Pacifica (UP) Task Force is now open! Pacifica Resource Center Executive Director, Anita Rees, and City Manager, Kevin Woodhouse, have worked collaboratively on the formation process for this important community task force. The application can be downloaded here or completed electronically here. The deadline for applications is Friday, June 14, after which top candidates will be interviewed by Friday, June 28. A more detailed informational report about what the formation process will entail is available at https://bit.ly/2QljzTb.

The need for a dedicated task force has grown out of an increase in recent years and months of the unhoused population in Pacifica and a proliferation of the unhoused living in over-sized vehicles, such as motorhomes. Recognizing the magnitude of this challenge and the City’s resource limitations, the Pacifica City Council identified the need for a Task Force of diverse stakeholders, representing the full spectrum of viewpoints about this topic, to volunteer their time and energy to research and define the unhoused and over-sized vehicle challenges in Pacifica and assess potential solutions. If you, or someone you know, is interested in assisting with this critical task force work, please apply to be considered.
