The City of San Luis Obispo is moving forward with it's controversial update to the General Plan. At Tuesday night's City Council meeting, members voted 4-to-1 to override the Airport Land Use Commission's guidelines for development.
Newly-elected council member Dan Rivoire was the swing vote, as a similar proposal failed back in October with now-retired member Kathy Smith voting against it. Rivoire replaced Smith.
At last week's meeting, he asked the council to postpone the vote for a week so he could more closely study the issue.
San Luis Obispo city leaders will take another stab at passing a blueprint for the city's development at Tuesday night's City Council meeting.

The San Luis Obispo City Council will vote next Tuesday on whether to move forward with its plans for future housing and transportation needs, despite restrictions that are currently in place for such development surrounding the airport and beyond.
The City Council discussed the topic at its meeting Tuesday night, but did not bring it up for a vote because newly-elected council member Dan Rivoire wants an extra week to hear from the public.
