Downtown Housing: Today and Tomorrow will be the topic of a community forum on the future of SLO Downtown Housing scheduled for August 16. In an effort to continue engaging the public on issues related to Downtown San Luis Obispo, Downtown SLO will host another “Downtown Foreword” event focusing on housing from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the Community Room at the County Library located at 995 Palm Street.

Panelists include Community Development Director Michael Codron, real estate broker Chris Richardson, local developer Matt Quaglino, and Downtown resident and employee Michael McDonald.
The program will run as follows:
– Michael Codron will kick off the evening with a thorough update on the current state of housing and what the prospect of future development looks like.
– Chris Richardson will elaborate on current housing economics and real estate trends that affect buyers and sellers on the Central Coast.
