Pacifica is a coastal city in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California, located in northern San Mateo county, situated between Hwy 35 and the pacific ocean. Pacifica is about 10 miles south of San Francisco, and has the highest ratio of open space to population of any city on the peninsula. With a population of about 40,000, Pacifica is a mid-sized San Francisco Bay Area community, known for it’s infamous fog. In fact, the city celebrates its notoriety with the annual Fog Fest each year in late September. Pacifica was incorporated in 1957, when the small coastal towns of Rockaway Beach, Vallemar, Sharp Park, Edgemar, Pacific Manor, Linda Mar, and Pedro Point united to incorporate and form the City of Pacifica. The city boasts a fishing pier, public golf course, beach park, 14 parks, 12 playgrounds, and hundreds of acres of protected open space lands. In fact, the city is notoriously — in fact, perhaps better described as insanely — anti-development, so the amount of protected, undeveloped land will likely increase, as opposed to decrease, in the future. The city is served by the Pacifica Elementary District, and the Jefferson Union High School District. Elementary school rankings range from the 50th to 90th percentiles, statewide, and the two High Schools, Oceana and Terra Nova, rank in the 60th to 80th percentiles. Not stellar, but not horrid, either. The 2010 census identified 14,359 residential housing units in Pacifica. Of these, 10,354 were single family detached houses, 782 were single family attached homes, 3,125 were multiple homes or condos or townhomes, and 98 were mobile homes. In addition, Skyline Community College is just a few blocks across the border, in northern San Bruno. Want to have some fun?

Though Pacifica has nice views, the city often suffers from its reputation for being cold and foggy, and also for having poor schools and mostly pedestrian housing, with a weak tax base as a result of the relatively few businesses located in town. Pacifica was incorporated in 1957, when several small coastside towns banded together and decided to incorporate as one city — hence its strange lack of a “central downtown” area, which seems to bother many folks. The locals prefer it that way, though — and they also favor few businesses opening up shop in town, and even fewer new residential housing units being built. The city is rabidly anti-development, as it has been run for decades by mayors and city council members with ties to local real estate firms whose businesses favor the sales of preexisting homes, as opposed to new homes sold directly by builders. A Pacifica cable TV channel often shows city council meetings, during which builders grovel to city elders about some development project they wish to do, always to end in a stern “rejected”! Instead, they grant residents the permission to build mega-mansions behind (and attached to) their tiny 3 BR, 1BA ranchers, by tapping into and extending out the existing plumbing and electricity. The result is a ghastly looking structure that resembles two shoeboxes stacked in the back, with one shoebox in the front (front view), or a giant upper case letter “L” (side view), which undoubtedly would have Frank Lloyd Wright turning over in his grave if he could see it… Residents can be seen grovelling and begging for permission to do various construction projects, the great majority of which are vetoed by the city council with a disappointing “REJECTED!” Still, change is the law of life and all things (and people) will eventually pass… When they finally do, Pacifica has an amazing untapped potential for development of beautiful homes instead of these bizarre ranch-conversion monstrosities, and beautiful seaside hotels and restaurants and high end retail shops that can generate tax revenues for much needed school and civil improvements– so keep the bulldozers at the ready — the future is unwritten!
