Late-night downtown crowd needs to stop disrespecting San Luis Obispo

The corner of Higuera and Chorro Streets is the one of the major commercial corners.

This is a message to all residents of San Luis Obispo and any travelers who come to our community. We are becoming concerned with the behavior of the downtown crowd at night. This is not just a weekend occurrence.

We hope to make it known that these types of behaviors will not be tolerated.

On a recent night, we had someone rip off our yarn shop’s handmade sweater that was surrounding the tree in front of our property across from the Mission. This is a beautiful piece of art put together by some wonderful local knitters and has been an attraction for many visitors and locals alike for many years.

While the damage can be repaired, we feel it is important to address the issues of vandalism, noise disturbance, public drunkenness and the general lack of respect for downtown residents. If you are ever involved with someone who is displaying disrespectful behaviors, please notify them that what they are doing is not OK. If they do not listen to you and continue to display disrespect in any manner, please notify the proper authorities.

We hope we can all learn to be better neighbors and create a fun and safe neighborhood for everyone to enjoy.

Anne and Kenneth Gough, San Luis Obispo
