Issues & Ideas: Housing teachers, digesting methane, and a new addition to downtown SLO

Oct 16, 2019

On this week’s Issues & Ideas, one Central Coast community is helping teachers fight affordability issues by housing them on school district land. 

Also, we hear about the Central Coast Queer Archive Project, which is documenting the area’s queer history. New hotels are popping up all over the Central Coast. The general manager of Hotel San Luis Obispo, recently opened in downtown SLO, stops by to talk about the hotel’s long road from concept to construction, and the types of customers the hotel hopes to attract with it’s new restaurants, bars, pool and rooms in the $400-$1000-a-night range. And we learn more about electric bikes on the Central Coast and how Central Valley dairy farms are embracing emissions-reducing technologies called methane digesters.
