Waiting... for Pacifica to wake up....
25th Anniversary of the "Rockaway Beach Specific Plan"
Quarry development? How about in our lifetime. This year we are celebrating the 25th anniversary that the quarry economic benefit and potential has been available to the City of Pacifica. After so many years, and the severe recession, the redevelopment advantage from the State of California may be dashed, but the local plan remains solid with the economic potential to provide substantial income to this city.
From the Rockaway Beach Specific Plan, "adopted by the Pacifica city council 2/24/86, includes 1992 amendments":
3.1 Land use, Central area. "The primary land use designations called for in this area include visitor commercial, mixed use, business commercial, open space/recreation and parking. The visitor commercial and mixed use activities are clearly intended to be the ultimate predominant uses, but the plan does call for the encouragement of new office employment on portions of the quarry site. The encouragement of use mixes, include either offices or residences over shops, is intended to create a diversity of activities in the area. Centralized parking is called for to reduce or eliminate many small and separate parking lots in the future." (page 12, 3/1986)
