- What’s Happening Around Downtown in March?
There is an old saying that goes, “Home is where the heart is.” For me, nothing could be truer than that. I live, play and work Downtown which is indisputably the heart of San Luis Obispo; some would even argue that it is the heart of the county. And in that heart there is one event, every week, that draws our community together: Thursday night Farmers’ Market in SLO.
- Intern with the SLO Downtown Association
Interested in learning how the Downtown Association pulls off events like Farmers’ Market and Concerts in the Plaza? We’re looking for interns to help this spring and summer. This internship is a great way to learn more about event planning, execution, and follow up. Graphic design and writing skills are also appreciated.
- Does Your Business Have Security Cameras?
A Message from Downtown Association Executive Director Regarding Security Cameras
We enjoy a lifestyle in one of the safest communities in our country but even to that point our local businesses are still at risk for criminal activity. As other communities address increasing pressures from criminals the criminals are looking for easier communities to commit crimes in. As such, San Luis Obispo has seen the effects of this in the last several months and residents and business owners like you have expressed great concerns to the Downtown Association office and the San Luis Obispo Police Department.
The SLO PD has asked me to help them identify security cameras in Downtown businesses in an effort to help catch and successfully prosecute criminals. The message should be clear to would be criminals that this is a community that will not tolerate anti-social behavior and that our businesses and local law enforcement will work collectively to keep it that way.
Today, I ask you to help this community stay safe. If you have a security camera in your business please let me know so that I can help build a list of businesses that are willing to stand together against crime. In your response please indicate the name of your business, address, number of cameras and provide your best contact information. You may email your response to Dominic@DowntownSLO.com, call 805-541-0286 or stop by our office located at 1108 Garden Street, Suite 210.
