Weekly Poll
Should SLO allow night hiking in public spaces?

Yes, I need my fix of night hiking and biking, especially during the short winter days.
No, I think that might disturb the wildlife that occupy those open spaces at night.
No, have you not heard of mountain lions?
People hike at night anyway so might as well make the change.
