This proclamation was presented to the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors on March 22, 2016 with a request to respond by April 19, 2016.
Because the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors is being inundated with highly sensitive, life altering, excruciatingly complex permit applications from some of the most powerful industries in the world, oil and gas, while at the same time trying to deal with the mounting drought emergency, co-mingled with managing day to day routine business the residents of San Luis are understandably experiencing some of the same information overload and exhaustion as our Board is.
With so much on their plates it is understandable that the Board may have moments where they are hopelessly conflicted therefore we feel that this basic proclamation will help clear the air and give us all a moment to reconnect with our roots and basic tenets as a community.
