The next general LOCAC meeting will be held Thursday,
December 10, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom.

The next Land Use Committee meeting will be held Monday, December 7. While the agenda is not yet posted, there are some project documents for your review at: http://locac.info/meetings/land-use-committee/

A 2003 project, changes to The Baywood Inn, was delayed. The project is ready to start now, and the California Coastal Commission resubmitted it to LOCAC for updated comments. The project was heard at LOCAC on 9-24-20. The resulting suggestions were submitted to the CCC and this document below offers the amendments the CCC has made. Any objections to the proposed permit must be received by 10 working days from the November 25 date of their notice. See the document below:

11-17-20 The County sent LOCAC a CEQA project referral for the South Bay Boulevard Bridge replacement project. Project referrals are to provide input for the County prior to completing our draft CEQA document for the project. We are providing a 30-day comment period instead of the usual 14 days. 

Please review the document below. This project will be on an upcoming LOCAC agenda which will be posted here, so check back for the date and time.

DRAFT BYLAWS and POLICIES and PROCEDURES Available for Review.
 
Our Bylaws committee has spent over 100 hours combined reading through and revamping our Bylaws and Policies and Procedures.

They are available for review and comment on our website. Please send any comments to:

 
Sandra, Bylaws Chair (ssarrouf.locac@gmail.com)

by November 29th. When submitting comments please make sure to refer to the Document, its Article and/or Section numbers so we can review them appropriately and make any changes.

May 18, 2020 – The County has sent a memo to all Community Advisory Councils on proposed changes to County Codes Title 23 (Coastal Areas – which we are in) and Title 22 (the rest of the County). This change is necessary due to a change in California law, which in turn requires how a county will comply with the new law. Read the memo here, the proposed changes and find the contact information for where to send your comments.

Ministerial Permits

Permits that are over-the-counter and that do not come to LOCAC can be found here.

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), LOCAC in-person meetings will not resume until the County gives permission for groups of people to hold meetings.

The LOCAC election has been postponed to a future date when LOCAC will be able to meet—following the County guidelines. When that date is known, candidates and the public will have the opportunity to share their views with the election to follow shortly after.

What is LOCAC?

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.
