Highlights: Keep Pacifica Beautiful, Safeway Opening
Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

Today's issue introduces a new format for Connect With Pacifica. We hope this makes it even easier to stay connected.

In 2014, the City adopted a Climate Action Plan ( click here to view a copy). Over the past 2 years, we have moved forward with implementing it and on September 26 the City Council will hear an update on our activities. Join us or tune in to the meeting to hear more.

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

Best,
LORIE TINFOW
City Manager
