Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

We hope that you are enjoying our Pacifica summer! Keeping with the summer theme, we have released a draft of Pacifica’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan for public comment at WalkBikePacifica.com; please give us your thoughts. The City is not the only entity looking for your input. Regarding wildfire safety, PG&E is hosting an open house in Half Moon Bay next week to share information about their Community Wildfire Safety Program. In recognition of California’s housing issues, the State Department of Housing and Community Development released a survey asking Californians to share their opinions on housing and community needs and challenges within their neighborhoods. See below for more information on these items. Your input is important.

The next City Council meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 12, 2019, 7 PM, Council Chambers, 2212 Beach Blvd.

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

Sincerely,
LORENZO HINES, JR.

It’s Spare the Air Season:
Plan for Your Commute & Reduce Air Pollution
Warmer temperatures are here and so is the Spare the Air campaign. The Spare the Air program reminds people that fewer cars on the road can mean fewer smoggy days, and fewer Spare the Air Alerts. Take time to consider alternatives to driving alone. Poor air quality in the Bay Area affects everyone, but there is a higher risk for children, pregnant women, the elderly and those with respiratory problems, such as asthma or bronchitis.

By working to ensure everyone has the knowledge and tools they need to make the biggest difference possible, we can reduce air pollution – and Spare the Air Alerts.


Below are some ways to make a difference and plan ahead:
  • Carpool to work. If telecommuting isn’t an option, think about sharing a ride to work. Carpooling can significantly reduce air pollution and traffic.
  • Work from home. Ask your employer about telecommuting
  • Take public transit – plan now and check out the schedules in your area. Visit www.511.org or www.bayareacommutetips.org to see routes and plan your trip.

San Mateo County Transit Authority Survey
San Mateo County Transportation Authority is asking for YOUR INPUT on how to allocate funding. Help frame transportation funding in Pacifica for the coming years by taking this survey!

In 2018, voters approved Measure W, a half-cent sales tax for transportation in San Mateo County. San Mateo County Transportation Authority will manage 50% of the measure. Currently, the agency is determining how to best evaluate projects so that those of greatest merit are priorities for future funding. You can learn more about the project here.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:
Shopping Assistance for Seniors Homebound (SASH)
Our SASH Program is available for seniors who, due to limited mobility, cannot shop for themselves and do not have anyone to shop for them. A SASH volunteer will pick up your shopping list and money to purchase items and return with your receipt and groceries.

Pacifica Senior Services is currently looking for SASH volunteers. For more information, please call Karen Parque, Information and Referral Coordinator 650-738-7353
