For the first time in history, it could be raining … housing? Fresh off the heels of San Luis Ranch gaining planning commission approval, the Avila Ranch community is set to work its way through the arduous entitlement process. Proposed as a net zero community on the South side of SLO off Buckley Road, this new neighborhood will include up to 720 units with the majority designed to be… let’s say “affordable” by SLO standards. But hey, with a town center, parks, trails, area road expansions, new bike lanes and open space, it’s no wonder Outside Magazine named SLO one of the best towns ever.
So what’s next? The ARC (that’s Architectural Review Commission for you plebes) will be reviewing the project at City Hall on June 19, 5pm. Be there so your friends can have a place to live next year.
