    \SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – A project to improve eight miles in both directions of US Highway 101 from north of Monterey Road to the San Marcos Creek Bridge in San Luis Obispo County to south of the East Garrison Overcrossing near Camp Roberts in Monterey County will continue with the following closures  

     The northbound US Highway 101 left turn lane at San Marcos Road will be closed 24/7 beginning Wednesday, April 12 through Thursday, April 27.  This closure is necessary for drainage, pavement, structural and striping work in preparation for the northbound/southbound detours on US 101.  Motorists headed northbound may detour onto Wellsona Road to San Marcos Road or exit US 101 at 10th Street and re-enter southbound US 101 via Cemetery Road before making a right hand turn onto San Marcos Road. 

     A long term closure for motorists wishing to turn left from San Marcos Road onto northbound US Highway 101 will begin Wednesday, April 12.  This closure is necessary for safety during median construction of the southbound San Marcos Creek Bridge.   Electronic message boards have been activated to inform the community about these closures. Motorists will continue to turn right at this location.  This closure will last until this fall

    Supervisor John Peschong will be available at the Mission Parish Hall from 2-4 pm on May 4.  You can contact his office to set up an appointment. 
    The San Miguel Plan final update is also available online:    It is the last one on the list. 


    All members or interested members of the SMCC are invited to join each month's Board Meetings.  Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm at Mars Mega Storage off Hwy 101 on Wellsona

    Glancing Back,
    Remembering Our Heritage
    The San Miguel Resource Connection has taken on the San Miguel History Project and this webpage as its major projects.  It is intended to preserve as much of the San Miguel History as possible and share in a way to encourage others to take an interest and understand the rich heritage of the community.       *****

    This month we share  numerous construction projects in San Miguel that will become memories of times gone by.


    Friends of Adobes are in need of Volunteers to help in the Museum and gift shop here in San Miguel.  You don't need to be a resident of San Miguel to be a Volunteer.  Times when help would be appreciated are:  Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays between 11 am and 4 pm.  Presently there are only 4 regular volunteers and at least 12 are needed.  Please consider being one.   It's easy work and fun to meet the visitors and know you are able to help preserve a piece of history.
    You can sign up for one day a month or every other month.  Any of those days you could be available, even for a part of the time scheduled to be open, would be greatly appreciated.  Please call Linda at 805-680-6086 to volunteer or get more information.

    The San Miguel Parlor is one of the oldest continuous operating parlors in the state.  Membership is open to all women born in California.  If that's you, consider getting involved  in an organization that promotes preservation of history, helping with veterans welfare, providing for children that need help, and honoring our great state.
    Native Daughters meet the second Wednesday of each month at 7 pm at the Sr. Citizen Center.  Call Jean if you'd like more information or want to get involved:  805-467-0194


    San Miguel  Advisory Council   Apr. 26, next 



     general meeting beginning at 7pm.   They will be accepting nominations for anyone interested in being a member of the Area Advisory Committee.  This is not a council just for the town of San Miguel, it includes a large area surrounding San Miguel and it's your chance to be involved in making recommendations to county planning and our supervisor.  You can contact Mike Sanders for more information:  805-712-9120


    Next mtg Apr. 27, 7 pm (6pm closed session)

    Consider joining the San Miguel CSD's GSA rather than be controlled by the county or Estrella/El Pomar or state.   The San Miguel Community Services District is open to properties in proximity of CSD boundaries  who may want to become a part the their Groundwater Sustainability Agency(GSA).  This does not mean you would be in the SMCSD, only in their GSA. Give them a call to find out more or attend a meeting. 
    If you live within the San Miguel CSD,   get involved, be knowledgeable about what is going on.  Attend meetings, get on a subcommittee.
    The CSD Board is interested in your input. 805-467-3388

    Enjoy a fun night out playing bingo!     San Miguel Senior Citizens host Bi-monthly Bingo at Senior Center East 12th St. every second and fourth Friday.  They invite all interested adults to join in the fun.  Doors open at 6 pm.  They play 10 games at only
     50 cents
    per card and you can enjoy refreshment
    while you play
    Also, once a month they host a Sunday morning Pancake Breakfast from 8:30-11:30.  Scheduled on the last Sunday of each month,  
    Once a month they also have a potluck for all those seniors interested.

    Walk for Autism


    On a sad note,  the San Miguel Lions Club is still not sure if they will be able to host the  traditional Old Timers Picnic because of the construction at the park. They should know in the next few months.  They have already  voted not to be partaking in the aquatic program this summer---June, July, and August of 2017.  They also voted not to continue with their Annual Fish Fry's which was one of their main fundraisers for the aquatic program.
    Construction at the park is limiting ability to have parking space to safely allow for events and the Community Building.

    San Miguel Joint Unified School District Board Meetings
    The community is invited to attend school board meetings and provide input to the board's discussion.  Regular meetings are normally held on the second Thursday of each month, adjusted for holidays or special circumstances.  For the most current information, call the superintendent's office at (805) 467-3216, ext. 203.  The board packet for the meetings are posted and available for review/download on the Friday before a meeting on the district website.
    The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the library at Lillian Larsen Elementary, 1601 L Street, San Miguel, CA 93451.
    Currently the District is seeking volunteers to serve on an Oversight Committee.
