IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Home For All
The City of Pacifica, in partnership with the County of San Mateo, is holding a community-wide conversation on housing as part of the Home for All program. Housing is a topic that affects us all, whether long-time residents or new arrivals. With that in mind, the City invites you to attend the conversation and share your stories of how the current state of housing has affected you or a loved one. The format involves small-group conversations with your fellow Pacificans – no public speaking in front of a large group is required. FREE breakfast for all and FREE childcare for ages three years and up will be provided. Space is limited, RSVP encouraged.

More information can be found on the Pacifica Connects page, including the complete event flyer.

Multi-Unit Housing Smoking Ordinances 
On Monday, March 25, a report will be presented to City Council regarding multi-unit housing smoking ordinances. This report is the result of a San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury report released in July 2018 titled “Smoke-Free Multi-Unit housing: No Ifs, Ands or Butts.” Presentation of this agenda item complies with a San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury recommendation to evaluate issues and hear residents' views on restricting smoking in multi-unit housing in Pacifica.

The San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury report can be found here.
