Congresswoman Jackie Speier is holding a town hall meeting about airport noise next week at Skyline College on Tuesday, Oct. 23, details and registration information here . Health and nuisance impacts from aircraft overflight noise over Pacifica is an issue the City Council continues to work on, most recently joining forces and meeting with the City of Brisbane. The City’s activity on this issue, as well as work planned for Fiscal Year 2018-19 on all of the City Council Prioritized Projects/Initiatives, are summarized in the FY2018-19 Workplans . These workplans, which will be updated quarterly and available through the website, are a helpful tool to keep Pacificans informed about the City’s progress on numerous important fronts. Of course there are many more priority projects, as well as hundreds of on-going programs and services, the City is undertaking beyond the 19 City Council Prioritized Projects/Initiatives.

And while you’re rushing with great anticipation to look at this document on the City’s website, don’t forget to pause to take the 3-minute Pacifica Libraries Vision Survey !
