I wish I would have bought real estate there 10-15 years ago. I remember when Nipomo was considered the armpit of SLO county, just riff-raff and gang-bangers (or at least that was the perception). Noboby and I mean nobody wanted to live there. Now look at it. The town is cleaned up and the cost of real estate is sky high. It's a nice place to live now.

Yeah its really grown a lot recently. I first went there in maybe 1993 and there weren't any stop lights at the Tefft exit off the 101 or to the east. Now there's a bunch of lights, curbs, a Vons, etc.

Here are my thoughts for the city:

~Los Barros Street development (200 acres)-should be development of Home Depot, Target, and regional open-air mall (Macy's and JcPenney's)
~4 other shopping centers: Albertson's and Rite-Aid center, Longs Drug center, Food-4-Less center
~theater in their downtown built
~Kennedy Club Fitness built
~a private school be built

We need development in this city to keep water taxes down. The more sales tax the less the water tax.

I also hope that in 2010 or 2012 the city incorporates. And I hope the city gets to 50,000 population in 2025.


And already the city is doing tons of great developments-hotel, new middle school, golf course, etc...

I think it's pointless. Not many other people sit around worrying about new malls in towns they don't even live in. I think a move to Orange County is in your future - you're clearly in the wrong area.

You mean "intend" to change? You, all by yourself, are going to get people to move there and get a mall built? I'm pretty sure SLO County is the way it is because most people prefer it to NOT have a mall and too many people. Like I said, that's what LA and Orange Co. are for - SLO is fine the way it is. When you get older, I'm sure you'll realize what I'm talking about. Until then however, you will be forced to be a bored teenager in a beautiful part of the world.

SLO "can be the way it is", Nipomo is Nipomo on the other hand. Nipomo is like Santa Maria. And the way Nipomo is changing isnt going to stop. I can go to the Nipomo incorporation meetings and speak in favor of my ideas and the incorporation.
