SLO Forward - Join the Conversation About the Future Needs, Challenges, and Vision of San Luis Obispo

Post Date:02/20/2020 11:25 AM

SLO Forward is a conversation with the community about the future needs, challenges, and vision of San Luis Obispo

The City of San Luis Obispo is engaging the community about their services, maintenance and infrastructure needs to ensure our community maintains its character and quality of life. Together, we can find local solutions that maintain quality of life, now and into the future.

Through conversations with community members, a list of top priorities have emerged:

• Requiring all funds used locally to benefit the community
• Addressing homelessness
• Protecting creeks from pollution
• Keeping public areas safe and clean
• Maintaining police, fire/emergency  response
• Helping ensure children have safe places to play
• Preserving open space and natural areas
• Protecting long-term fiscal stability
• Preparing for wildfires and other natural disasters
• Repairing streets and potholes

We are continuing to have the conversation with the community to ensure these are your top priorities. 

Please fill out the community survey on what your highest priorities are.

The feedback will be presented to the City Council in June, 2020 to ensure the City has the resources to continue providing the services, maintenance and infrastructure the community values most.
