Pacifica residents gathered to brainstorm

Pacifica residents gathered at Cabrillo Elementary School for the first of two workshops to brainstorm ideas for updating a municipal planning document known as the Housing Element.

Pacifica residents got a glimpse of the city’s housing future, and a chance to influence it, at a public workshop last week.

The city is in the process of writing the Housing Element of its new General Plan. This sets the direction for housing that could be built in Pacifica over the next eight or more years. The process is shaped in part by California's Regional Housing Needs Allocation, which projects the need for new housing statewide and portions those numbers out to regions as their expected contribution. Cities must show in their general plans how and where such housing could be built.
