Highlights: Get Us Moving Survey for Transportation Priorities, Public Works Updates, Volunteer Opportunities with City of Pacifica for Adults and Youth
Connect With Pacifica This Week

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, but knowing that repeating oneself several times helps deliver the message, I am really encouraging Pacificans to fill out the County’s “Get Us Moving” survey to inform the County Transit District about how you think potential new County-wide sales tax revenues should be spent on transit. Your survey input will make a difference by helping deliver a clear message to the County about what is important to Pacificans – repairing local streets, highway improvements, public transit improvements, bike/pedestrian route improvements, or other. If approved by the Transit District and the County Board of Supervisors, there may be a ½ cent county-wide sales tax measure on the ballot in November 2018. Please take the survey !

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

  3. Free Pet Waste Bag Dispensers to Clean Up After Your Pet for a Healthy Environment: Pet waste left on sidewalks, streets, yards and other open areas can be washed away by rains and irrigation systems, making its way into storm drains leading into local creeks and the ocean. Pollution from the pet waste can harm the water quality and habitat. Carry disposable bags when you walk your pet and pick up and dispose of pet waste in a garbage can. Offer extra bags to other pet owners who are without. Clean up after your dog every single time.
