    San Miguel  Community Plan Update Community Meeting:. SLO COUNTY Planning & Building dept. personnel has scheduled a community meeting to provide a forum for discussion and comment on the Public Hearing Draft. (soon to be released and I assume available at the meeting)  It will be  from 6:30 pm to 7:30 on Oct. 5 at the Old Mission San Miguel Parish Hall (behind the Mission).  The Community Plan will result in changes to zoning, policies, programs, and standards that affect property and development.  If you own property in and around  San Miguel, your property may be affected by such changes or by other changes in the Community Plan.
    The project is scheduled for the San Luis Obispo Planning Commission on Thursday, October 13, 2016, at 9:00 a.m.

     Thanks to Courtside Cellars Employees for Helping with Downtown Landscaping
    Fifteen employees from Courtside Cellars worked for two hours on the landscaping in downtown San Miguel  and made a significant improvement in the looks of our downtown.  They usually help us out quarterly and it is much appreciated.   They even trimmed the tree that used to hide the sign, at 13th St., to the library.  Thank you!
