The need for focused work of a dedicated task force has grown out of an increase in recent years and months of the unhoused population in Pacifica and a proliferation of the unhoused living in over-sized vehicles, such as motor homes.

Recognizing the magnitude of this challenge and the City’s resource limitations, the Pacifica City Council identified the need for a Task Force of diverse stakeholders, representing the full spectrum of viewpoints about this topic, to volunteer their time and energy to research and define the unhoused and over-sized vehicle challenges in Pacifica and assess potential solutions.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in assisting with this critical task force work, please apply to be considered.
