Downtown SLO is a community neighborhood that is fueled by passionate small business owners, residents and guests from around the world. As a Great American Main Street our Downtown embodies all that is essential to be a role model Main Street program following the 4 points approach but as we have matured in the industry it is apparent that we need to refresh our image and brand. To rest on our laurels would be a fool's errand. As we speak our community is communicating across stake holders of businesses, cultural arts museums and centers, BID and business owners to find ways to get sidewalks cleaned, infrastructure maintained and preserve the beautiful urban forest that we love so much. Nestled among the Santa Lucia foothills of the Central Coast, we value our large canopies of Ficus trees and our Urban Forester program meets monthly to maintain those trees and the surrounding areas. The fact of the matter is, the community members donated over 7,000 of their time last year to make Downtown shine. With the opportunity to have funds and tools available to our organization we can better equip our team to keep this Main Street world famous for our Downtown SLO Farmers' Market guests and residents alike.
