The circulation element, which the City passed in 2014, calls for significant increases in non-motorized transportation.

A landmark business in downtown San Luis Obispo is preparing to expand its operation to the outskirts of town.

San Luis Obispo County's Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) met Wednesday for the first time since the San Luis Obispo City Council voted against the commission's restrictions for development.

Last week the council moved forward with its General Plan update, the Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE), and in doing so overrode the commission.

ALUC Members heard a presentation by the city at Wednesday's meeting regarding the LUCE.

The City of San Luis Obispo is moving forward with it's controversial update to the General Plan. At Tuesday night's City Council meeting, members voted 4-to-1 to override the Airport Land Use Commission's guidelines for development.

Newly-elected council member Dan Rivoire was the swing vote, as a similar proposal failed back in October with now-retired member Kathy Smith voting against it. Rivoire replaced Smith.

At last week's meeting, he asked the council to postpone the vote for a week so he could more closely study the issue.

San Luis Obispo city leaders will take another stab at passing a blueprint for the city's development at Tuesday night's City Council meeting.

The Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE) looks at traffic and housing through 2035. Aspects of the plan don't agree with guidelines established by the state-run Airport Land Use Commission, so the council will need at least four members to vote for an override in order to push the LUCE through.

The San Luis Obispo City Council will vote next Tuesday on whether to move forward with its plans for future housing and transportation needs, despite restrictions that are currently in place for such development surrounding the airport and beyond.

The City Council discussed the topic at its meeting Tuesday night, but did not bring it up for a vote because newly-elected council member Dan Rivoire wants an extra week to hear from the public.
