Located approximately 2.5 miles south of Downtown San Luis Obispo, within the City’s Urban Reserve, the Airport Area consists of 1,500 acres of land adjacent to the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport bordered by the Margarita Area, South Higuera Street, South Broad Street and Buckley Road.  

The Airport Area Specific Plan envisions a mixture of open space, agriculture, business parks and industrial development. Plans for the Airport Area include reuse and regeneration of the natural and built environment; public, private, and environmental value enhancement; and smart and sustainable growth that benefit the community economically, aesthetically and environmentally.
