The city of San Luis Obispo needs additional housing stock of all types, sizes and income levels. Local housing builders say the SLO City Council makes this difficult or impossible.
I am confused about why the SLO City Council believes that a family-sized two-story, four-bedroom home will attract students, yet a much smaller one-story home in the same location, too small for a family, will somehow attract families. The SLO nanny state continues.
The developers jumped through all the hoops put in front of them and were still denied. The developers did not ask for any exceptions to city zoning ordinances. The project was approved by the Architectural Review Commission and meets the city’s design guidelines. It provides desperately needed infill housing.
When did building larger homes where tiny homes once existed become a problem here? Whether you agree or not, it is done regularly and consistently in SLO.
The student problems in this neighborhood already exist and will continue to exist until Cal Poly builds more on- and off-campus student housing. Whatever is built on this property will not change that.
