Highlights: Hwy 1 Lane Closure, Congresswoman Jackie Speier's Town Hall Meeting, Get Us Moving Transportation Survey
Connect With Pacifica This Week

Earlier this week, representatives from the San Mateo County Get Us Moving initiative presented at the Pacifica City Council meeting, inviting Pacificans to voice their opinions on transportation needs and challenges in Pacifica that deserve funding priority. More voices make a greater impact to give Pacifica’s needs the weight they deserve in County planning. Please take a moment to take this short survey at www.GetUsMovingSMC.com or attend the upcoming Get Us Moving Town Hall meeting on February 1 st in Pacifica.

Our residents also have the opportunity to voice what matters on a national level in this Saturday’s Town Hall meeting held by Congresswoman Jackie Speier in Pacifica.

More information on both of these opportunities to contribute your voice can be found in the City News section below. Your voice matters!

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