According to the Santa Maria Times, the San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors tentatively approved a plan for Nipomo’s West Tefft corridor. The intention is to guide future development with rules that will promote a walkable downtown area for the locality. In addition, the plan addresses traffic congestion occurring at Nipomo’s Tefft & Highway 101 intersection.
Also affecting local property owners, Los Angeles developers have turned their sights on a 4,000 acre parcel of land west of Hiighway 101, east of Highway 135, and just south of Orcutt. They are requesting an amendment to the general plan which would change the zoning from commerical agriculture to a category which would allow a variety of urban uses. They envision 7500 residences from affordable apartments to executive residences and 2 million square feet of commerical/retail space within walking distance of the different village areas.
