The San Luis Obispo Planning Commission heard a report Wednesday from city officials on growth management that projects a population of 57,200 in San Luis Obispo by the year 2035, from its current total of 46,456. City officials say resources are adequate for buildout in 2035. Some members of the public say they don’t believe the city is accounting well enough for affordable housing and climate change.
