SLO Council isn’t thinking about current residents with proposed housing projects

Well, it looks like the SLO City Council will be approving approximately 1,200 new homes (San Luis Ranch and Avila Ranch).

Have they given any thought that there is no infrastructure in place to handle the additional traffic that will add to the current congestion, the additional police, fire, etc.? It’s the prime example of “the cart before the horse.”

Do they care about the impacts in the interim to the current citizens of this city?

And about that Prado Road overpass: Who will shoulder the bulk of that expense? Not all of us have short memories; Ernie Dalidio was told that he would have to pay for the proposed overpass before he would be allowed to develop the Madonna Road property.

Once, there used to be a common policy of developers paying the cost of development.
