Orcutt Area Specific Plan
The Orcutt Area is located along the southwestern edge of the city limits of San Luis Obispo. The Orcutt Area encompasses 230 acres of land at the base of Righetti Hill. The specific plan outlines a conceptual pattern for how open space, trails, parks, and future housing development should occur in this expansion area. Ultimately, changes to the Orcutt area will rely on owner and resident initiated development plans.

On March 2, 2010, the City Council approved the Final Draft of the Orcutt Area Specific Plan (OASP). The City Council has also certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the project and approved the area for annexation into the City. The OASP and FEIR were the subject of 17 public hearings by the Commission and other City advisory bodies from 2008 to 2010 (staff reports for these meetings are provided below).

A Q & A letter was sent to Orcutt area residents on June 20, 2011. This letter describes the some basic questions about the annexation: Q & A letter

The annexation of the Orcutt Area was finalized on November 16, 2011 as a result of the November 15th special election.  The Orcutt Area is now a part of the City of San Luis Obispo.  A letter welcoming Orcutt Area residents to the City with information regarding City services was sent by Mayor Jan Marx on December 12, 2011: Orcutt Area Welcome Letter.
