Highlights: National Night Out, Devil's Slide Ride, SFO Roundtable Meeting on Airport Noise, Library Opportunities Survey
Connect With Pacifica This Week
You have the opportunity this weekend to enjoy Pacifica’s Coastal Trail on the Pup Walk and Whale Talk. This is a 1.9 mile leisurely stroll that you can do with your whole family. The walk begins at the Pacifica Community Center at 10:00am this Saturday, July 29. Marine naturalists will teach participants all about whales that frequent our area during this coastside stroll. This event is brought to you by PARCA as part of its annual Devil’s Slide Ride event. Be sure to register to support this good cause.
Here at City Hall, we are hearing increasing complaints about how changes in flight patterns have resulted in aircraft noise in neighborhoods throughout Pacifica negatively affecting our residents. If this issue is affecting you, one way of making your voice heard is to participate in SFO Community Roundtable meetings. The next meeting will be held at Millbrae City Hall on August 2 at 7:00pm.
Please let me know if you have comments or questions, andthank you for wanting to

Share Your Thoughts on Pacifica Libraries Opportunities by July 31
We heard we need a new library… Share Your Vision Online
The City of Pacifica wants to develop a plan that meets our library needs and has our community’s support. We are continuing to plan the future of our libraries. By participating in this short “Pacifica Libraries Opportunities” survey via City Hall Listens, you can share your priorities for types of spaces and activities you wish to see in your Pacifica library. Your input counts!
National Night Out on August 1st Invites Neighborhood Block Gatherings and Activities - Pacifica will be participating in the 34th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 1. Always the first Tuesday in August, this national campaign is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Organize a block gathering activity in your neighborhood such as an ice cream social or barbecue, or simply turn on your porch light between 6:30 and 9:00 PM to show neighborhood support and participation in National Night Out. When residents on a block know each other, the neighborhood and the community is safer and stronger. See the Press Release for more information about National Night Out.
SFO Community Roundtable Meets August 2 to Address Airport Noise Concerns- The SFO Community Roundtable is a voluntary committee that meets regularly to address community impacts from aircraft operations at San Francisco International Airport. The next regular meeting of the SFO Community Roundtable is on August 2 at 7:00pm at Millbrae City Hall, 450 Poplar Avenue, Millbrae. Meetings are open to the public.
