Event description

Description

Join YPNG, SLO U40, and SLO Scoop for another awesome evening... After the Prepare for the Polls event, we thought this was a great opportunity to follow up with our community to maintain civic engagement after voting.

San Luis Obispo is gearing up for its 2019-21 budget cycle, and city officials want to hear from the public about goals and spending priorities. The City Council is hosting a Community Forum on January 23 from 6-7:30pm, followed by a public comment from 7:30-8:30pm. Beforehand, join us for happy hour at The Kinney from 5-6pm to learn about the current priorities and take a peek at our cheat sheets. The forum starts promptly at 6:05 across the street, so we can easily walk over together. RSVP HERE so we know how many cheat sheets to print for you.

TLDR:
5pm: The Kinney - Happy Hour with us to get informed on the issues
6pm-9pm: San Luis Obispo Veterans Memorial Building (SLO Vets Hall) - Community Forum & Public Comment

We are interested in helping you get educated on the topics. Here are the current major city goals:

- Housing (Facilitate increased production of all housing types designed to be economically accessible to the area workforce and low and very low-income residents)
- Multi-Modal Transportation (Prioritize implementation of the Bicycle Master Plan, pedestrian safety, and the Short-Range Transit Plan)
- Climate Action (Implement the Climate Action Plan, carbon neutral by 2035 target, and complete a Green House Gas emissions update)
- Fiscal Sustainability & Responsibility (Continue implementing the Fiscal Health Response Plan in addition to focusing on economic development and infrastructure financing)
- Current Other Important Objective: Downtown Vitality (Continue to improve safety, infrastructure investment, and maintenance in the Downtown)
- Neighborhood Wellness
- Open Space Preservation
- Traffic Reduction
- Addressing Homelessness
- Growth Management
- Infrastructure Maintenance (Roads, sidewalks, and bike paths)
- Public Safety
- Water Management
- Economic Development

But wait, there's more!
OPTIONAL:
Community members can weigh in by completing a survey at www.slocity.org/opencityhall. So far, more than 1,000 people have completed it and results from surveys completed before January 16 will be included at the Community Forum on 1/23.
