The following information is from Sue Morgenthaler, LOCAC member and member of the Land Use Committee.
We are getting down to crunch time. Our Board of Supervisors Hearing to appeal the 670 Santa Lucia vacation rental is July 9th. Please plan to attend! Our case is well thought out, but getting as many neighbors as possible into the Supervisors' Chambers is more important than you can imagine. WE NEED YOU THERE. PLEASE ATTEND! BRING FRIENDS! With a lot of us there, they will have no choice but to listen to us. As soon as we have an idea of when during the day we will be heard, we will let you know.
The meeting starts at 9AM, there will be the usual pleasantries and Consent Agenda Items. We are at the top of the hearing items, so they should get to us rather quickly!
Please arrive before 9AM. The closest parking structures are at the Post Office on Marsh Street and one up on Palm a couple of blocks down.
For those of you who plan speak, you will need to fill out a short form with your name and hearing item number. Speakers are limited to 3 minutes. Even if you just get up and say you support your neighbors and would like them to deny the permit, go for it! If you choose not to talk, that is perfectly fine, we are just happy you will be there!
The meeting is in the Supervisors’ Chambers
New Government Center
1055 Monterey Street Suite D430
San Luis Obispo
Also, would you please write them a letter? Address your note to 'Dear Supervisors’ and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org Ask that it be distributed to each of the Supervisors, referencing Thoman APPL2019-00006/DRC2018-00204 in the subject line. Please write as soon as you can so they will actually have a chance to read them before the hearing. They don't have to be long, short is good!
If you wrote a letter last time around, perhaps you would consider resending it, adding an introductory paragraph that speaks to the issues we are challenging at the hearing. It sounds like they may not see those letters, so they should all be sent again.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
