Readers Poll

Do you support plans for a six-story project with 50 units of housing in downtown SLO?

  • Yes. We need housing, and building it downtown is a great idea.
  • No. Six stories is too tall and will ruin the character of downtown.
  • If the project had more affordable housing, I'd support it.
  • It doesn't matter. This plan will fall apart just like the bowling alley fiasco.
