Communications and Public Outreach

The Administrative Office brings County departments together to foster meaningful relationships with each other and County residents by tapping into and harnessing the already strong sense of community. It enhances the County’s ability to raise awareness of its programs and services and increase citizen engagement by developing, launching and applying a unified County brand and taking a multimedia approach to communications, using tools that are easy and effortless for both citizens and employees to engage with on a regular basis.

The Administrative Office also promotes the use of a variety of web-based technologies that enable interactive and highly accessible communication from County government. This allows increased County and department responsiveness, improves information sharing, and facilitates greater public interaction.  

One such method is a monthly public e-newsletter. This connects the public with County government and keeps them informed about the latest County news and issues. Each month, we share important information, announcements and stories showing you how we meet the environmental, economic and social needs of our community.

Do you want more information on big issues, including water, better paying jobs and the economy, workforce housing, and homelessness? Subscribe to our monthly e-newsletters. 

Residents have told us that they prefer monthly communications via web updates and e-mail/e-newsletters, which is why we provide this monthly glimpse at County issues, services and programs. Enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who manages the County's communications?

There is no centralized communications department at the County of San Luis Obispo. Instead, each department is responsible for managing its own communications activities. Contact each department individually to find out more about individual communications activities. However, the Administrative Office works to connect the public with County government in a variety of ways. It conducts surveys for community feedback to improve performance, develops informative presentations and materials to improve communication with the public, and promotes technology to make County government more accessible.
