Three Summits for the City of San Luis Obispo

I feel there are three issues of concern which merit additional attention; homelessness, housing and downtown parking. While I realize much has been done by various political bodies to address these issues, I am proposing that we undertake a far more expansive process that would allow for greater inclusiveness and the development of diverse ideas. I am calling for three summits starting in Fall 2021 through Fall 2022.

Three, one-day summits; Fall 2021, Spring 2022 and Fall 2022, addressing respectively:

  • Homelessness
  • Housing
  • Downtown Parking

Invited to each summit would be:

  • Local experts from each field.
  • State leaders who have implemented positive change while addressing these issues.
  • University experts that can offer models from the international community on ways they successfully addressed these issues.

The local community and the press will be invited. Hopefully these summits can be held
at the PAC, and designed so to allow for question and answer periods from the audience.
It is further hoped that from these summits we will be able to reach common ground for
ideas that can be implemented to the benefit and progress of our community as we forge
forward into the 21 st Century.
