Housing is a difficult subject in the Estero Bay region, as there is so little available. Traditional housing can be approached by contacting HASLO (Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo - 487 Leff St., San Luis Obispo -805-543-4478), HomeShare (805-215-5474, homeshareslo.org), and by contacting various apartment complexes directly.
Here are some unconventional and alternative approaches to housing:
The City of Morro Bay is currently seeking hotels or apartment buildings in the area that the City can purchase and renovate to create more available low cost housing. Please contact the Community Resource Connections office (805) 225-1991 if you are aware of any such properties.
Hopes Village - Becky Jorgenson - 805-234-5478 Hopes Village is actively advocating for tiny homes as an alternative to traditional housing. They are currently searching for a large parcel of land on which to site the tiny homes. Currently they are working with Cal Poly SLO who is building two tiny homes per year as part of their Construction program.
Cal Poly Students Build Tiny Houses
Hopes Village is happy to announce that Cal Poly Construction Management Students are building tiny cabins on wheels each quarter for the soon-to-be sustainable community village in SLO. Presently 2 classes are building 2 tiny houses - one quarter the foundation is built - the next quarter the walls. What a great way to teach young people to take care of our own! Thanks for the update Becky Jorgenson of Hopes Village!
