Re: “For bike's sake: New bike facilities are coming to SLO, concerning some residents and commuters

On the flip side, the loss of parking and vehicular facilities is going to be a tough transition to work out. A focus on long term planning that serves solving some of the current--and anticipated future--issues for motor vehicles traveling in and through the City of SLO would be really helpful in alleviating the stresses of this transitional period. Plus, for parking-congested areas, looking at some new public or private mass parking facilities might be really helpful--allowing people to park when they get to town, and use bikes once they're here. Yes, some new facilities may have environmental impacts, but sustainability minded planning and mitigations can help ease those burdens. And, in the long term, the net effect on the community and environment would be beneficial for drivers, commuters, residents in need of parking and bicyclists.

Re: “For bike's sake: New bike facilities are coming to SLO, concerning some residents and commuters

I became a league certified instructor for the League of American Bicyclists because I heard so many people saying, "I would bike, if only it were safer," and I wanted to be able to help overcome that fear. Cheers to the City of SLO for prioritizing the effort; now we just have to figure out non-city resident commuter circulation that serves neighborhood safety for the long term, and we will be good to go. If you're interested in taking up cycling, please feel free to reach out. There are ways your barriers, thoughts and experiences can help inform the upcoming bicycle plan to make this a safe and comfortable transition for all. If you don't know how to get involved to provide input, City of SLO Bicycle Advisory Committee and Bike SLO County are great first steps. For parents with kids, the Safe Route to Schools program at your school is another great way to get the right changes for how you use (or want to be able to use) our City streets.

Re: “The housing predicament

Waiving or reducing fees for applicant-occupied housing on lots less than 1 acre could make it easier for the workforce to build its own housing as infill. While the fees are fairly reasonable is unincorporated areas, they are prohibitive in some city areas, which leaves a lot of infill lots unused.
