  • Cities may rejoin plan to build new animal shelter

    Last month the City Councils of both Atascadero and Paso Robles voted to walk away from an agreement with the County of San Luis Obispo to pay for a portion of a new, $14 million animal shelter in San Luis Obispo that would provide animal services countywide, but now a modified version of that agreement could be back on the table. After both councils voted to leave the agreement, an ad hoc committee was formed to see if the issue could be resolved and the two cities brought back on board. The ad hoc committee, made up of District 5 Supervisor Debbie Arnold, County Animals Services Director Eric Anderson, Atascadero Mayor Tom O’Malley, Atascadero Mayor Pro-Tem Roberta Fonzi, Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin and Paso Robles Mayor Pro-Tem Steve Gregory, had a productive meeting by all accounts.

    A bridge to nowhere?

    This week construction began in earnest on the Colony Plaza project and a new footbridge was installed across Atascadero Creek, joining Colony Square (home of Galaxy Theater) with a new plaza and parking area on the north side of the creek and the Sunken Gardens beyond. The bridge has been the subject of a lot of controversy in the community and criticisms that it’s a “bridge to nowhere,” connecting one empty lot to another and within half a block of another bridge in either direction to boot. But I don’t think the critics are seeing the bigger picture — the bridge is just another baby step toward the transformation of the downtown area.
