Re: “SLO council denies residents' appeal of Foothill development

Why is it that city of SLO holds out on something less significatnt such as no drive throughs to keep the small town feel, but is allowing out of control building including lot coverage and height beyond what the actual zoning code allows?

Riehl said. "I'd much rather spend money improving the city than fighting a frivolous lawsuit." Most of us like SLO how it is ... why not go spend money improving a city that actually needs improving! Dont be fooled by developer tactics of offering something so small as $150k towards infrastracture improvements - $150k wont go far enough for the necessary improvments that will be necessary to accomodate the new projects.

Can a gofundme acct be started to help hold on to Tom Brown/BlackHorse Espressos lease to help preserve SLO a little longer? I was born in San Jose when it was beautiful - building it out did not create affordable housing, only created a huge urban sprawl. I grew up most my life in Santa Cruz, CA, It also was destroyed due to lack of planning on the part of planning department and poor choices by government officials.

Sure wish SLO planning and government would learn from the mistakes of other Cities in making choices for SLO.

Re: “Chorro and Marsh

Not too long ago SLO was on lists as the happiest place to live. But, with all the building going on w/o any thought to how bringing in all the new residents is going to impact everything about SLO, it will be anything but happy. We need to look to other areas to see what happens when thoughtful planning is not in place.

Ive seen developers find ways to try to convince the current community that what they are doing (in this case provide affodable housing) is to benefit the community ... but really, what is their real agenda? A developers job is to make a profit. The community really needs to look at the long-term impact.

A 7 story building downtown is going to impact way more than the view while walking down the sidewalk down town as a previous person commented. I dont understand how dense housing downtown allows people to live close to where they work - are there really that many jobs downtown?

I never understand why people move to an area because they like it, but then they change it. Look back at the history of San Jose which was beautiful at one time. Same with Santa Cruz.
