Highlights: RVs in Pacifica Discussion, Library Plans Community Information Meeting, New Art Exhibit by Pacifica Historical Society, President's Day
Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

At the upcoming February 11, 2019, City Council meeting, the topics of RVs and Homelessness will be discussed. The Council previously discussed this topic in July, 2018, and directed further research into:
  1. Parking ordinance amendment options to address RV parking issues;
  2. RV parking program options for homeless community members to lawfully park overnight, and;
  3. Other RV parking safety and waste disposal health concerns.
This is a complex topic, and one the City receives a lot of inquiries about, so the Council will be carefully considering options. The staff report for this Council item can be found here.

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

Sincerely,
KEVIN WOODHOUSE
City Manager
