At the October 19 city council meeting, City Manager June Catalano discussed the “Super Community” program, an NFL program that provides Bay Area communities with information and guidelines for hosting and promoting local events during Super Bowl Week.
The program is for communities that are not in San Francisco, but part of the larger Bay Area community and provide opportunities to participate in regional celebrations leading up to Super Bowl on February 7. Catalano said, “ There are special privileges for the first 50 cities to sign up as a super community, and we were one of the first 50. On December 19, there will be 50 days until Super Bowl 50, and on that day residents will be invited to participate in the Golden Wave, a virtual wave that will ring the Bay Area. Each community will receive an appointed time to invite residents to step outside and light up the night sky with their mobile phones or flashlights and carry the wave of golden light across the Bay Area.”
More information on Pleasant Hill’s appointed time will be available in the
