Now that Pacifica has released the draft of the proposed General Plan for public review, I would like to second the comments from Clay Lambert in the Jan. 26 Tribune regarding the 45-day public comment period ending Feb. 21. This is the minimum required by law.

Since the General Plan is the City’s “Constitution” and will remain the operative document for the next 40 years or so (as was the current General Plan in use since 1980), why the rush to get through the public comment period?

Here’s a story that needs to get out. Most Pacificans aren’t even aware the city is planning to build a brand-new civic center for a cost of over $11 million and rising. And I don’t think many people are aware that the City Hall building they’re planning to drastically reduce with an ultra-m…
