The Cielo Obispo is a 0.38 acre lot located on the corner of the Old Town Historic District and Downtown San Luis Obispo neighborhoods. The Cielo Obispo Development Package is a guiding document to future development on this site. This analysis contains information regarding the complex regulatory, financial, economic, and physical constraints and opportunities when developing in California and San Luis Obispo. The development package explains the process and a breakdown of the requirements that would be needed to get a project of this size entitled and shovel ready. This information is particularly important for planning professionals within the City of San Luis Obispo as the size and density of development is considered infill, and a common approach for development within the city. Understanding the ins and outs of development beyond the regulatory and planning requirements assists planners to shape and change policy and process that affects development, to spur development that can implement the type of change desired at a city level.
