In the upcoming election, Pacificans vote for three open City Council seats. A new council could stop the Calera Parkway Project (aka widening Highway 1). A new council could hire consultants to look into alternatives like roadbed sensors and synchronized traffic lights that would be a lot cheaper than widening the road. A new council could hold public hearings. The current council majority has done none of these things. Attend the council candidate forums (see below) and ask candidates where they stand on highway widening.
