Land Use Committee

The Land Use Committee is the voice for land use issues affecting Los Osos. Land use includes developments, outdoor recreation, open space, zoning and more. We review and make recommendations regarding all minor use permit applications. We seek input from the public regarding our community’s land use priorities and goals. We research and advise regarding major ordinance and policy changes.

The Land Use Committee meets the first Monday of the month at 7:00 pm on Zoom (formerly at the Sea Pines small conference room, 1945 Solano St, Los Osos)
LOCAC MEMBERS: Larry Bender, Chair, Lynette Tornatzky, Yael Korin, Sue Morgenthaler, Trish Bartel.    
PUBLIC MEMBERS: Julie Tacker, Linde Owen, Paul Hershfield, Robin McPeak.

Land Use Meeting August 31:

There has been concern expressed that tomorrow’s LOCAC Land Use Committee may be at risk of being hacked similar to the incident that occurred with the meeting on Wednesday scheduled to discuss issues related to homeless encampments in Los Osos. 

It seems best to proceed as planned to discuss the agenda issues even though there is a possibility that the meeting may be hacked.

I want to assure you that we have some options on our end which we will implement if it becomes necessary.  If we are hacked we will terminate the meeting immediately and reschedule.

If you want to ensure that you don’t view any possible visual hacking, cover your screen and use the audio port only.  You can also participate by joining the meeting by telephone, thus eliminating any visual component.

I am requesting that you send your comments and concerns by email so we have a record in case there is a disruption, and we have to adjourn quickly.

We are exploring alternatives to ensure that our meetings will be secure.
Larry Bender
Land Use Chairperson
