spectacular turnout last night.
Avila Ranch & San Luis Ranch meet tonight.
The passion for housing is strong & alive here in San Luis Obispo. Several hundred residents came out in the pouring rain last night to express their priorities to the city at the Biennial Goal Setting Forum.
Among many exciting topics, housing was the Number One topic of discussion. Local organizations such as the Economic Vitality Corporation expressed their views on housing in relation to jobs and the economy. A multitude of individuals also spoke on behalf of their personal stories and experiences.
We are ecstatic to see this level of engagement coming from you and hope it continues for years to come.
In a few hours...
Tonight, the SLO City Planning Commission is continuing the discussion on Avila Ranch and San Luis Ranch. The two projects combined are proposing a visionary 1,300 units of housing to the city.
Playing an active role in forums like this is how our community is built.
