Letter to the Editor

Lots to love in SLO

San Luis ObispoMarch 14, 2014 

Reading the March 13 letter from Vanessa Berlowitz (producer and director of “Planet Earth” and “Frozen Planet”) brought to mind the exceptional work of Save Our Downtown and its contribution to keeping downtown the wonderful place it is.

As a relative newcomer to SLO (13 years), downtown has the special flavor that not only we, as residents enjoy, but out-of-towners can appreciate, as well.

Perhaps Ms. Berlowitz was in town for our fabulous film festival, which just ended. More than 60 films for all ages and tastes were shown to a large and receptive crowd.

This is what tourists love about our city, and we hope we can keep it this way, and not go backward, as change is inevitable, but keep the views of mountains and the magnificent trees and the mom and pop businesses we all want to support.

This not only benefits the tourists, but we who live and love it here, as well.
