Like most kids, when I graduate in a year I'm heading off to community college cause my parents can't afford it. And do you really like a non-intellectual kid would be on a forum like this?

So you have no problem seeing SLO get to 50,000 population by new families or existing families?

And when are you going to show your facts for there not being a majority of college kids in SLO?

Lastly, you should get used to the internet. Everyone interupts everything differently.
"We're there already...again, don't believe me, do your homework."

"We ALL (except you) know what we do need is more affordable housing to suit the needs of the [existing populace]."
This is what I debated you on. what existing populace? I dont know of any 6,000 residents living in poverty or apartments not counted in the census.

Bye, the eye. try again next time....or not

I actually like the high price of living in SLO. True, I never could afford to own a house there, but there is less crime. My husband and I grew up in the valley so going somewhere that you could leave money on the seat of your car with your door unlocked overnight is completely refreshing. We would rather live in a shoe box that was safe than live somewhere we could afford with crime. I enjoy the small town charm and I have only been to Gottschalks only once. What is the point of bringing in another store just like one we already have? So as a former resident that was living as a low income, barely being able to buy food.. I would not have wanted a Macy's. I wouldn't have even cared enough about a Macy's to comment.

San Luis Obispo is always going to have low crime. The majority of people living there are families, elderly, and college students.

Anyways, I think Prefumo Creek Commons is about the only shopping center we need in San Luis Obispo right now. It's the only approved to be built. Sure, it would be nice to have Dalidio's old project and Macy's, but getting to 50,000 population to be considered a suburban city is more important. And besides, more affordible housing for existing and new families is what everyone seems to want. So let's have every other shopping center "proposed" converted to housing.:)

It's pretty ignorant to think SLO will always have low crime.

Well, let's not forget the state put us down to have 355,000 ppl in the county by 2030. I think my estimates for the cities has changed now b/c of the recession:

-San Luis Obispo-48,000 population in 2020. 49,000 population in 2025, and 50,000 population in 2030
-Paso Robles-36,000 population in 2020, 40,000 population in 2025, and 44,000 population in 2030.
-Atascadero-30,000 population in 2020, 32,000 population in 2030.

I think technically San Luis Obispo is already a suburb, by population density standards. For cities averaging from sizes 40,000-60,000 population in California. SLO has the second highest population density, next to Santa Cruz. And SLO almost has 150,000 population within 20 minutes of it, so I would definately say south county is a suburban area.

Lastly, I heard a rumor that makes me think it will be true. That SLO is becoming very high class. I heard that a Lexus car dealership wanted go in, but as soon as the gas prices went up the company stopped expanding. Then I heard Sak's Fifth department store was going to replace Ross b/c Ross's sales were down from lack of shoppers buyging their cheap products. Then I heard the Village at Maymont and Chinatown project retail centres are going to include some outlet and speciality upscale clothing retailers. This tells me SLO is moving away from family-orientated businesses.

The downtown expansions, and Prefumo Creek Commons next to Costco might be the last developments in the city. Then SLO would just be growing at their natural slow pace of 200 ppl a year.

Macy's? No thanks. However there is something SLO needs, it is another Americam food buffet resturant, where people can go and eat an affordable meal with their family. They would clean up! The one in Madonna plaza is a disaster, the food is always the same, not very well prepared, a very limited menu, etc. Somebody in that resturant organization needs to take a trip east and visit the Golden Corral resturants and get educated about how buffet resturants are supposed to operate. If they followed the Golden Corral example, the parking lot in Maddona plaza would be overflowing every night!

You'll find this interesting. I stumbled upon it while at the SLO County website...pay close attention to the questions regarding growth in our county.


NOW do you get the picture?

San Luis Obispo is still heading towards 48,000 population in 2020 and 50,000 population in 2030, and they r still going to build Prefumo Creek Commons with Kohl's next to Costco since it's been passed and the shopping center is just waiting to get all the tenets to start construction.

And, there is no stopping the downtown growth. The city council is pro-downtown growth and the ppl in the downtown association are all business owners, real estate agents, developers, and business people that support the growth of adding stores like that in downtown.

By the way, when Copeland's project goes through. It is going to have Macy's apart of it. You don't have to welcome it, but I and others will support Macy's and Kohl's coming to SLO.
