Quarry Initiative Numbers Racket

Pacifica.city Post

If you've ever seen a street hustler playing three-card monte against a gaggle of suckers, you'll love the numbers game going on between quarry owners Eenhoorn/Heule and the City of Pacifica. Click the link above for Pacifica.city's analysis of the play action, and click the link below for the no-rezone group's comments to City Council on quarry housing numbers.

News from Harbor Commissioner Sabrina Brennan

Please join me for my Harbor Commission campaign kickoff event on Saturday, July 30. Email your RSVP to meg.fried@yahoo.com. I'm collecting nomination signatures for the November election. Your support is very important to me. If you would like to make a campaign contribution, please visit my website.


I'm pleased to report that the Harbor Commission approved two sand volleyball courts at Pillar Point Harbor this week. I made the motion and it was approved in a 4-1 vote. In response to this good news, Mark Massara, General Counsel and Vice President of Social Responsibility at O'Neill Wetsuits, said, “Now that is a healthy coastal-dependent, visitor-serving recreation opportunity if I ever saw one!” I'm happy that the Harbor Commission and district staff are focused on the needs of the community.

Pacifica City Council: Library Bond on November Ballot

Press Release

Really bad legal advice to Pacifica City Council forced a July 21 special meeting to reconsider the library bond measure (see city memo below). On July 21, council heard public comments (including a rude overtime diatribe by the head of the chamber of commerce that the mayor tried without success to gavel down), debated briefly, then voted 4-0 to put the bond on the November ballot. Council member John Keener said he would vote NO in November due to environmental and fiscal concerns about the planned site for the new library.

Title & Summary for Quarry Initiative Measure

Pacifica City Council has directed staff to prepare a 9212 report (per state election code) to address questions on the latest quarry proposal ballot initiative. The general public and council members emailed questions to be included and answered in the 9212 report. Important: If you emailed your questions to QuarryQuestions@ci.pacifica.ca.us, please make sure that you copy them to noonquarry@gmail.com for a public record of all questions submitted. City staff will prepare the 9212 report and present it at the July 27 council meeting. At that time, council will accept the report and pass a resolution to put the measure on the ballot.
