Wow, and people say Fix Pacifica is mean. I agree with Cindy.

Cindy, it's just a subjective game that, like other civic-pride games, is in the eye of the judge. What the press release implies is that those who spend the most to shine up their lot will win. Personally, my favorite homes are the funkiest piecemeal-constructed wonderlands rather than some spiffy clean renovation job the competition implies. I'm surprised you bit on this, as it's more suited to a red-state frame of mind than a free-spirited state or area like ours. Just MHO.

The native plants are great, that is for sure, as native plants provide food and shelter for the wildlife that evolved to use them -- wildlife that now is so threatened in so many ways. Great folks working on this, good work! -- keep it going.
The mayor and City Council have had plenty of time over the past seven years to focus on running a fiscally competent system, open communications during the EIR process with the voters regarding the proposed Highway 1 widening, increasing costs and liabilities with revenues that cannot keep pace with the commitments that council is making on the taxpayers' behalf.
Yet council has refused on all counts.

Well, they're still saying "SCENIC PACIFICA" on the letterhead. Maybe that means they don't plan on destroying the town with a massive construction project in the middle of town. Right?

The general feeling among Pacificans who are aware of Mademoiselle Tinfow's recent embarrassing revelation regarding the city's "balanced budget" is that the mayor's attention ought to be focused on 4 million other things right now, if you catch my drift.

Really? What's up with criticizing the re-initiation of a program to celebrate what our neighbors and local businesses do to take care of their properties and showcase this in our lovely little city?
I was honored to be asked by Dave Martinez, a member of the Pacifica Beautification Committee that has been working on public areas, to be a part of this subcommittee to recognize fellow Pacificans. Our criteria for judging will include use of native and drought-resistant plants and use of recycled materials in addition to general aesthetics. Look forward to seeing nominations come in and positively recognizing local achievements.
1. a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.
"the team was bursting with pride after recording a sensational victory"

Who is more deserving of this Pacifica Pride Award than our San Pedro Valley Park pride of mountain lions?
