Will our lifestyle suffer a SLO death? 

NEEDLESS STATE AND LOCAL RESTRICTIONS THREATEN OUR QUALITY OF LIFE

One of the most nefarious regulations to come out of Sacramento has to do with a requirement that each and every community in the State of California accommodate its share of growth: this despite the fact that not every community has adequate water, sewage, and transportation infrastructure to accommodate such growth.

My concern has to do with all that serves to threaten the ability of our farmers and ranchers to earn their living from agriculture.  I believe the single biggest threat to our quality of life would be anything that forces these families to sell their land so that it may be converted to other uses, including estate living. Unfortunately, much of this pressure of conversion is emanating from our own county government in the midst of this recession.


 We have a good thing going in SLO; we should not let our State and County governments ruin it.
