What are the most important priorities the City should focus on over the next 2 years? (You may list more than one.)
1. Limit parking to encourage walking/biking. 2. Require purple pipe (reclaimed) water for all new construction to be used for outdoor irrigation and indoor toilet flushing. 3. Retrofit underground electrical wiring starting with Shell Beach and moving south. 4. Reduce overhead street lighting to enhance nighttime natural star and moon gazing (studies in Chicago and London have proven that street lighted areas actually have slightly more crime than unlighted areas) 5. Allow 2 story houses with gabled roofs in all areas of Pismo and Shell Beach to be consistent with earlier built homes. Flat top roofs are now popular so as to accommodate the current 15' limit and they look like office buildings not blending well with existing homes.

Getting a speed limit sign on Terrace next to the school to help curb the number of idiots who speed down the street endangering the lives of children and other living things. I tried for 2 years to get this done to no avail although the police department did place their mobile radar sign at the bottom of the hill. This helped until they removed it. I was told that there was no money to paint the speed limit in the street or to maintain a sign. I was later appalled at the cutesy signs placed at every intersection on Price Street.....a minimum of 4 per intersection. Frady Road also has several similar signs. Additionally, there are twelve 50 mph signs between city hall and Spyglass. There's even one placed within 150 feet of the stop sign at the bottom of Mattie Road....very dangerous to go 50 MPH on a residential street anyway.

Not really my highest priority but I would like to see some signage downtown, stressing the ocean plastic problem and the responsibility of people to not leave plastic litter (specifically) around. I think that a larger, esthetically pleasing "billboard" somewhere near the flagpole by the pier and then possibly, some smaller signs in the beach area would be very helpful. Also, I think a good way to come up with the design and graphics for this billboard would be to enlist the help of surrounding grade and middle schools, maybe running a "contest" for the kids. This after all, is largely their problem to deal with and people would be more receptive to signs created by young people.

I have already sent letters with this idea to a number of area school principals.

Thanks - Mike

First I'd like to thank our City leaders for doing a great job! We've lived in Pismo for 30 years and raised our family here.
My first item is traffic law enforcement. The last six months it seems everyone is running stop signs and driving right past school buses with the stop sign enabled and lit (the stop is right across from us). Using turn signals is apparently just too much work. Extremely loud motorcycles are on the rise too.
Second is Downtown revitalization. Very important for keeping out hotels booked and revenue stream strong.
Third is overall street and landscaping to keep our town looking great and property values high.
Thanks for listening!
Mark

The City should prioritize insuring resource acquisition/allocation (water) and infrastructure (sewer, roadways) before beginning new projects.
Pismo/Shell Beach needs a Dog Park. Folks love their dogs and love to let them off-leash, however, this causes problems for on-leash dog walkers and pedestrians.
The City needs to collaborate with CalTrans on the traffic mitigation on the 101 through the Shell Beach/Pismo Beach area. Now that we can rely on gas tax funding, this needs to get moving ASAP. My recommendation is for a 'smart' version of the rush hour travel lanes.
Logical traffic circulation in the downtown area is important.
