Together we can protect the natural environment, 
safety and accessibility of Avila.
Strong Message Sent to 
County Board of Supervisors
Nearly 50 supporters attended the April 17 SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting for the presentation of Concerned Citizens for Avila's "Hold on Development in Avila" Petition, with 2047 signatures. 

With all the media coverage and through many conversations, CC4A has successfully raised awareness regarding the impacts of approving large development before the Update to Avila's General Plan is complete.

CC4A Urges Solutions to Fire Danger
after Cave Landing Workshop
Nick Franco, Parks Director for San Luis Obispo County, heard concerns and ideas at a workshop on April 25. Many attendees are very worried about illegal fires at Cave Landing and the potential for a catastrophic fire event like those in California last year. 

At CC4A's Evening with Fire Chief Lee last February, Chief Lee described the difficulties Cal Fire is having with enforcement. Not enough Sheriff personnel are available to assist. After the recent workshop, CC4A followed up with a letter to Director Franco urging fire danger be a top priority.

New After-Hours 
Code Enforcement Service 
The San Luis Obispo County Department of Planning and Building Code
Enforcement will begin weekend and holiday on-call service to the
unincorporated areas of the county. Residents can now call (805) 788-2350 and speak directly with the on-call County Code Enforcement Officer. The on-call hours will be:

Friday 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.
Saturday 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.
Sunday 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.
Holidays 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.

This service will allow people to report violations such as unpermitted grading, work that is causing environmental damage, unpermitted temporary events and violations of event conditions. These types of activities often occur on weekends outside of Code Enforcement's normal business hours. The environmental damage can be extensive and typically irreparable. The Department is hoping to reduce or eliminate these types of weekend problems by providing this on-call service.

During normal business hours residents can continue to report violations by calling (805) 781-5600 or by going to the department website at and following the Code Enforcement link.
