Wrong place

San Luis ObispoDecember 13, 2013 

My wife, Stephanie, and I are adamantly opposed to Cal Poly’s plans to put a 1,450-freshman residential facility at the corner of Grand and Slack street on the Cal Poly campus.

We appreciate the coverage the Tribune gave to this project on the Dec. 3 front page. We also appreciate you giving Dan Carpenter’s Viewpoint piece a prominent spot on the Opinion page two days later.

Dan hit the nail on the head. The corner of Grand and Slack is the wrong place for such a facility. He had many good arguments that delivered the feelings of the permanent residents of Alta Vista and Monterey Heights neighborhood’s as to why we oppose the proposed project.

We just hope that Cal Poly listens, and positively reacts, to our objections to the proposed project.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
