Downtown project neglects parking

Re: “ Downtown SLO student housing meant for top entrepreneurs,” Nov. 16: Thirty-two apartments downtown with no parking. “Bicycles will be the preferred mode of transport for most students.” I applaud this optimism, but it does not mean the students will not have cars. And they have to park them somewhere (probably in the nearest neighborhood without parking meters).

Parking was one of the issues that caused us to sell our home near Cal Poly and move farther away from campus. Parking has been an issue in San Luis Obispo since I first moved here in 1975, especially near the downtown core. Building residences with no available parking is not a solution.
