Join us in the Old Town visioning study. The City, in collaboration with graduate students from Cal Poly State University of San Luis Obispo are holding a series of community meetings encouraging business owners and citizens to engage in discussion regarding the vision for the Old Town. The purpose is to provide the community with tools to understand the characteristics of the area and visualize what options are available. Specifically, participants will be asked what characteristics of the Old Town should be celebrated, and which areas need improvements relating to urban design, architecture, compatibility of residential & commercial uses and road/pedestrian designs that would attract residents of the community. The overall process will last approximately 3 months or till about June 2017. A formal study will be finished and made available for all to view on this City webpage.
This is the final draft version of the Old Town Study (PDF), it has not been approved by City Council. This document was done for academic purposes and will be used as a reference for a potential Specific Plan which is being proposed for the near future. At this time, no further information about the Old Town Specific Plan is available. Thank you to all the citizens who participated in the study.
