PB Pathways soon to be on the ground!
Our neighborhood safe route markings for walking, biking, and skating will begin being installed soon.  District 2 Council member Ed Harris has committed funding for sharrows, pavement way-finding markers, and signage for phase one routes.  These routes will connect our street murals at local Pacific Beach schools to other community destinations.  Visit beautifulPB website to learn more: PB Pathways
