Pristine beaches, stunning coastal valleys, clean air, low crime, a top-notch university—a great place to live, work, learn, retire and visit! What business are we in in San Luis Obispo County?

 

What’s at stake? The reputation that SLO County has become pro-oil development!

What will that mean to residents? A huge cost to the county in reduced property values and property taxes and specifically, if you live within a neighborhood where oil may be explored (that impact potentially covers dozens of square miles), you may not be able to sell your home! That’s right: would you buy a home in an oil field?

 

What is the bigger picture if the county becomes pro-oil development? Retiring couples and second-home purchasers attracted to our area will avoid rural areas in SLO County and may consider other coastal counties like Santa Barbara or Monterey County; small business owners looking to invest and relocate to SLO for an improved lifestyle may be put off by a pro-oil development energy plan; disgruntled residents impacted by pro-oil may choose to relocate.

New Times story by Colin Rigley: A new oil-drilling proposal in Huasna Valley is nothing like the last one and exactly the same...


Concerned residents of the Huasna Valley and surrounding areas packed the South County Advisory Council meeting (3/24/14) to hear a presentation on the Porter Ranch Oil Project.

 

This project is a partnership of oil rights owned by subsidiaries, including Alamo Creek Oil Co, of Australian Oil Company, the founders of Excelaron and who are currently suing San Luis Obispo county.

Due to the increase in recent commercial burglaries in the rural areas of San Luis Obispo County, the Sheriff's Office is requesting that residents in these areas be on high alert for any suspicious activity, and to make sure they are reporting these incidents.

The Rural Crime Unit is asking that extra measures be taken to secure your property:
• Make sure you file serial numbers of your property in a safe location
• Consider installing motion sensor lighting, an audible alarm and digital security cameras in non visible locations around your property
• Secure your property in a locked shed if possible

To report suspicious activity, call our Dispatch Center's business line at: (805) 781-4550, and in emergencies dial 9-1-1

Please forward this to anyone who might benefit from this Alert.
