Meeting planned to help plan SLO's future traffic and land-use needs

A public workshop on planning for the city’s future traffic and landuse needs as parts of San Luis Obispo’s General Plan will be held Thursday.

The city’s General Plan is used as a blueprint for planning and regulating development.

The results of a citywide survey about key issues, completed by more than 2,000 residents, will be discussed.

That survey found there is continued support for open space and concerns about traffic congestion and homeless issues, according to the city.

Participants will be asked to give feedback on the following areas to be updated: creative land use options, downtown pedestrian walkways and overall environment, vehicle transportation pathways, identification of new growth areas, and community amenities and facilities. Complete survey results are available at http://www.slo2035.com . The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Ludwick Community Center, 864 Santa Rosa St.
