Re: “A board majority that does nothing right

And where shall all these affordable people work, where the never ending supply of Poly kids already don't? Which giant manufacture base will you be relying on to support jobs and careers? Where are the vast fields of farms, ready to accept workers by the droves, to pay them squat wages, so they can live in affordable housing?

And what shall the housing consist of? Massive blocks of high rise projects? Huge acreage spreads of single level apartments? Hundreds, or thousands of tiny bungalows filling the precious open space? Tell us all how the already overcrowded infrastructure will handle all this affordable living? How many bridges are you willing to construct over the 101, to connect every side street in the city?

Remember when Ernie Dalidio wanted to build "affordable housing" on his land, and certain leftist board persons destroyed that idea, because the board didn't want the "...entrance to SLO to be crowded with ugly homes"?

SLO is a destination city. We have no fantastic natural event to draw in tourists, no gorgeous valleys to charge outrageous park prices to ogle at, nor vast forests of unique trees and fauna to pretend to be quiet in. We are in close access to a few nice beaches, and the Madonna Inn. Some people even think Hearst Castle is worth seeing at least once. Oh, and sea lions, we got sea lions.

What we have, is a community that has grown of wealthy people looking for a nice place to retire to, or to live in to raise their families. That desire created the market for expensive housing and land (and the city council and land development boards encouraged). The market alone, decided that SLO is worth paying exorbitant prices for houses that would 1/4 to 1/3 the cost anywhere else. As soon as someone...SLOCBS...attempts to control, alter, or legislate that market, affordable housing will be the least of your financial worries.
