Gimme those new regs
Who’s jonesing for a future vision of SLO – one with tiny homes, rooftop bars, and enough housing to accommodate our population growth? We sure are. As SLO’s General Plan update culminates with a new/improved set of Zoning Regs, here’s the scoop. Back in 2014, SLO adopted a new Land Use & Circulation Element to direct future development and transportation needs to protect our quality of life and promote public health. Guiding the city’s growth until many of us have a few [more?] gray hairs, these new zoning standards will take us to 2035 and run the gamut, from density to d-town development, transportation to tiny homes, and cannabis to cars, just to name a few.
Over the past few years, the city gathered a plethora of public input – workshops were worked, people were polled – and hundos of pages of zoning updates were born. With some loud locals claiming pesky developers and so-called skyscrapers [eye roll] are ruining their NIMBY vision of the SLO Life, the rest of us trying to live/work here need a voice too. Your last chance to be heard on this is Aug. 21 at City Council at 6 pm. See ya there.
