Supervisor Hill Votes Against Developing Agriculture Land

At a recent San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors’ meeting, the Board voted 3-2 to not authorize for processing a General Plan Amendment.

<p>San Luis Obispo, California &ndash; At a recent San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors&rsquo; meeting, the Board voted 3-2 to not authorize for processing a General Plan Amendment to change the zoning of a 92 acre property in Templeton from agriculture to residential rural. The plan was to enable a 14 lot housing subdivision. (item # 12 on Feb 9, 2015 agenda)</p> <p>&ldquo;It is exactly what we should not be doing,&rdquo; Supervisor Hill said and noted, that the proposal was in direct conflict with several critical elements of the county&rsquo;s general plan. &ldquo;We need to preserve our agricultural lands and not promote rural sprawl.&rdquo;</p> <p>In opposing this application, Supervisor Hill was joined by Supervisor Debbie Arnold and Supervisor Bruce Gibson. Hill stated, &ldquo;It is reassuring when we not only follow our own land use rules but when we can forge unique alliances to do so. I commend Supervisor Arnold for her vote on this proposal. This is simply not the kind of housing we need.&rdquo;</p> <p>CONTACT:<br />Anita Narayana<br />anita@adamhill.us<br /> <strong><a href="https://adamhill.us">https://adamhill.us</a></strong></p>
