GENERAL COUNCIL:

LOCAC Committees serve to advise the general council. The general council then meets with the public to address issues and decide on recommendations to San Luis Obispo County. **LOCAC is an advisory body only.**

Meets Fourth Thursday of the month at 7 pm


Land Use:

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.

Larry Bender, Chair; Patrick McGibney, Secretary; Robin McPeak, Sue Morgenthaler, Linde Owen, Julie Tacker


Active Transportation

The new Active Transportation Committee was formed at the November 2021 LOCAC meeting. Deborah Howe is heading it with help from members of the public. Active transportation is using any self-propelled human powered mode of transportation. The purpose of this committee is to discuss issues for active transportation, to identify projects, and to get feedback for priorities, safety and funding options. This committee is now joined with the Traffic & Circulation Committee, which no longer exists independently.

Meets 3rd Tuesday at 6 pm

Deborah Howe – Chair, Trish Bartel, Tom Cross, Jim Hale, Jeff Bartel, Lynette Tornazky, Jim Quesenberry, Meg Syfan


Trees + Landscaping

The purpose of the Trees and Landscape Committee is to assist in the greening and beauty of Los Osos in order to achieve healthy, appropriate trees and landscaping throughout the community.

We invite new members interested in improving the tree canopy in Los Osos.

Email our chair Andrea Lueker to get on the zoom list for the next meeting – alueker@sbcglobal.net


Ad Hoc Water

PURPOSE – to present information to LOCAC regarding Los Osos’ water issues – including reporting on actions by the county and the Basin Management Committee:  In addition, placing these issues in a larger context of regional and state water issues, and policies and opportunities.  Our presentations aim to be unbiased.  We will whenever possible provide links to our sources of information so individual members can do more detailed inquiries.


Community Outreach

The mission of the Community Outreach Committee is to promote awareness of LOCAC and provide information to the community primarily via this website as well as social media and other more  traditional forms of communication.
