I do believe. I do, I do!
Local workforce and affordable housing advocates cheered the release of some light bedtime reading material last week. The 3,200 page Draft Environmental Impact Report for the proposed Avila Ranch, the SLO housing community off Buckley Rd, is in the 45-day comment period where peeps have until Jan. 11 to comment on the project’s impacts. 75% of the proposed 720 homes (built over 8-years) would be priced at or below workforce housing levels, AKA, you might not need to hit up the ‘rents for down payment help.
And word on the street is the Draft EIR for San Luis Ranch, the proposed 500-home community off Madonna Rd, is set to be released in the coming months. Both projects will be up for approval before SLO City Council in 2017. Even if both projects get built, SLO still won’t have caught up with its jobs/housing imbalance. #SLOsoSlow
