Highlights: Spring Egg Hunts, Bike Lane Installation on Palmetto Ave., Youth Advisory Board Applications for 2018-19
Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

Spring weather has sprung this week in Pacifica. Perfect timing following last week's rains to take advantage of this weekend's Spring Egg Hunts hosted by the City of Pacifica Parks, Beaches and Recreation at local parks. See the Spring Egg Hunt Event Flyer below for more information on times and locations.

The weather has also assisted with the painting of bike lane markings along Palmetto Avenue as part of our Palmetto Streetscape Project this past week. This work is nearly complete, but you can help by using caution and respecting the signs and cones if travelling through this area.

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

Sincerely,
LORENZO HINES, JR.
Assistant City Manager
