Thank you to the city of Pacifica’s Public Works Department and the continued support of Gail Bennett and Ryann Hoffman on Palmetto Avenue’s streetscape bulb-outs. I recently weeded our neighborhood bulb-out at the mini park and Public Works picked up the weed pile. Bennett and Hoffman coordinated the pickup and they also send out helpful project reminders.

I’m grateful for this continued partnership between the city, Palmetto businesses and neighbors working together to improve the street. The bulb-out plants are all so healthy and big now. Even the weeds were huge and thankfully still easy to pull. It must be due to all that special quarry water the plants get.

The springtime greenery along Palmetto has been a wonderful improvement on the street. A new veggie garden at Montecito and other plant-related businesses are welcome additions too.

Come stroll Palmetto’s neighborhood and see all the new greenery for yourself. Palmetto’s improvements and the people working for them deserve future sea level rise protection. Together we can keep this unique heart of Pacifica growing and green.

Dear Editor: I am a resident of San Mateo County and a parent of two elementary-age kids. I support Prop. 15 because schools in California are severely underfunded. We are ranked 41st in the nation in per-student funding, with the largest class sizes. It’s unacceptable that a child attending…

Dear editor, In last  week’s Trib a lot of ink was given to the debate over Gaspar de Portola’s statue and how it must go, in the name of social justice. I have always thought of social justice as being about equality and fairness, and I agree that there are elements of social justice involved […]
