Many have tried... All have failed! This economic development plan (circa 1997) is modelled after similar development plans in Carmel, California and Cannon Beach, Oregon (both recently featured in Sunset Magazine) and a handful of other progressive thinking communities throughout the United States. No such community exists in the Bay Area and such a plan would certainly be a draw to the forty percent (40%) of the population as a whole who might very well like to take advantage of it. The good news: an economic development plan that would actually benefit the quality of life of citizens of Pacifica who are dog guardians (a statistical fact that there are more dogs than children in Pacifica and San Francisco) and bring much needed dollars into our community. The bad news: the extreme environmental dog haters who run Pacifica would never go for it.
