Safety News from SLO County
Please have a look at the latest information from our county:
In exercising an abundance of caution due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the LOCAC general meeting scheduled for March 26th will be cancelled . Many organizations and local governments are taking precautions to limit in-person meetings and protect the community.
The Los Osos Community Advisory Council is the voice of the community for all land use issues affecting Los Osos. We are an 11 member volunteer group that advises the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors, the County Planning Commission, and County staff on land use planning, trees & landscaping, traffic and circulation and other important issues that affect Los Osos. LOCAC is also a voice for protecting Morro Bay and the sensitive environment surrounding our community.
Who Serves on LOCAC?
LOCAC has two elected representatives from each of four residential districts within Los Osos. The term of office is four years. Only persons who live within the residential district may vote for the candidates from that district. A public election is held in even-numbered years for half the elected seats. The District 2 Supervisor appoints the other three members whose terms are two years (odd-numbered years). There is no limit to the number of terms a member can serve. The new members are seated and officers are elected by the Council each year at the end of the May LOCAC meeting.
Each LOCAC member is expected to be a member of at least one committee in addition to participating in the monthly general meeting. A LOCAC member who is not an officer can expect to spend approximately 6-8 hours per month on LOCAC business.
