I wanted to comment on an editorial in the Jan 14 paper: “Does downtown SLO have too many restaurants?”
When my husband and I moved up here eight years ago, we never saw much construction going on. Now, you can’t miss it. We rarely go downtown because of the parking situation.
How about the building going up next to the Palm Theater? Are they building condos, stores? If so, where is the parking?
Sorry to say, SLO is not a quaint little town anymore. I realize that the mayor and the city have no control over dictating the mix of businesses downtown. Can the city find a way to construct new public parking areas?

Editor’s note: A new parking structure is planned for the corner of Palm and Nipomo streets. The project is going through the environmental review process, and an Environmental Impact Report is being prepared, according to Community Development Director Michael Codron.
