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

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 and read the Frequently Asked Questions about SLO Forward.

The feedback will be presented to the City Council in late spring/early summer to ensure the City has the resources to continue providing the services, maintenance and infrastructure the community values most.

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. These engagement efforts also include information about how the City's existing Local Revenue Measure has funded essential services and a basic level of infrastructure maintenance but is not enough to deliver the services and infrastructure the community values most.  Together, we can find local solutions that maintain our 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
