Agricultural Worker Housing Ordinance
On Tuesday, October 16th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the San Luis Obispo Library (995 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo), the County will hold an Agricultural Worker Housing Workshop to discuss the framework of the ordinance. This workshop will be open to the public. Come learn about current regulations regarding agricultural worker housing and provide input on upcoming amendments. There will be a discussion of the permitting process, density and location of housing, minimum lot sizes, and examples of types of agricultural worker housing. Water and snacks will be provided.
The informational flyer is available in both English and Spanish.
As part of the Housing Package, the Board of Supervisors has directed staff to revise the Farm Support Quarters Ordinance to incentivize and remove barriers for developing farmworker housing on agricultural land and in surrounding communities. Agricultural workers generally have special housing needs due to their limited income and the seasonal nature of their employment. The chronic under supply of housing that is affordable and suitable for locally employed farmworkers has economic, social, and environmental impacts.
