Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

Note the revised dates below for Hwy 1 nighttime road closures and detour routes coming up for Caltrans’ work on the San Jose Avenue Pedestrian Overcrossing project. Also, the Sea Level Rise/Local Coastal Plan Update Draft Policies were released last Monday for public comment, and there is a  Public Meeting  on Saturday, 9/15, noon at the Community Center. And don’t forgot Saturday is also  Coastal Cleanup Day ,and the  Rancho Day Fiesta at the Sanchez Adobe.
 
But also save some energy and time for Sunday, because there’s a  Historical Tourism presentation  on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2:00 p.m. at the Pacifica Coastside Museum by Mitch Postel, President of the San Mateo County Historical Association. Pacifica, as a city with some of the oldest history in San Mateo County, has a great opportunity to draw visitors to its historical places and highlight this coastside area, which in turn helps the economic well-being of the City. Come out and learn more about Historical Tourism.

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

Sincerely,
KEVIN WOODHOUSE
City Manager
