September 2017 Business of the Month – Los Osos Auto Body


Los Osos Auto Body Inc. or Robertson’s, as many know it, opened its doors in 1985 as a family business. Today that small family business has grown but has not lost its small town roots. They will gladly take the time to polish off a little scratch or go to bat for you with the big insurance companies. With employees that have been with them since they opened their doors, free loaner cars and four generations of the Robertson’s in house this is the definition of a caring family business.

August 2017 Business of the Month – Grocery Outlet Los Osos


Thank you again to the Los Osos/Baywood Park Chamber of Commerce – for choosing Los Osos Grocery Outlet as your Business of the Month August 2017!

We have been meeting lots of our neighboring residents. Coupons in local advertisements such as Bay News and Local Flavor help with our introductions, our customer service and valued products seem to keep them visiting often.

We are thankful to the community response to our own little programs: Honorary savings cards for active & retired military families & veterans, win what you save (2 winners drawn a month), school rebate cards (we meet our neighbors, neighbors get groceries, and card carrying for selected schools get 5% of total sales earned back to their school). And then there is our big company wide food drive that happens the month of July. Independence from Hunger. As a family of grocers, all sister stores participate in collecting food, and monetary donations for our local food pantries. Together Grocery Outlet Inc. has raised over 1 million dollars this July! We were proud to be one of the newer additions to help that drive.

County Adopts $592.3 Million Balanced Budget for FY 2017-18


The County of San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors adopted a $592.3 million budget for fiscal year (FY) 2017-18 on Tuesday.

The $592.3 million budget is about a 3 percent growth over the current fiscal year. The budget prioritizes funding that allows the County to meet legal mandates and debt service requirements, strengthen public safety, and improve roads. It also includes funding to manage groundwater basins, continue the 50Now program to house and serve chronically homeless individuals, regulate medical and recreational cannabis, and fund parks projects in the south county.

The budget also incorporates funds distributed to local nonprofits as well as funds related to groundwater management, commercial cannabis cultivation regulations and enforcement, and affordable housing programs.

“The budget is the most important document we produce, as it outlines the County’s financial plan for the upcoming fiscal year and is intended to communicate and implement Board policy related to County operations,” said County Budget Director Emily Jackson.

The people of San Luis Obispo County had an opportunity to weigh in on the budget recommendations during public budget hearings on June 12 and 14.

The County government publishes its award-winning budget document every year, attempting to strike an appropriate balance between financial detail and discussion of bigger picture issues, Jackson said. Each year, the document is intended to inform meaningful discussion about resource allocation decisions among the public, the Board of Supervisors, and staff.

Travel to Tuscany in Fall of 2017


Tuscany/One Hotel Holiday Presented by CI Destinations

The Los Osos/Baywood Park Chamber of Commerce will once again be offering a fully escorted tour of the awe inspiring region of Tuscany. Tuscany is the place where movies are filmed and fantasies run wild. Perhaps it’s the cities of Florence, Pisa, or Sienna that invoke feelings of culture, art, or arouse the senses as do the smells and taste of the Chianti region. The fact is that Tuscany is home to some of the most famous tourist attractions in all of Italy.

This is truly an amazing opportunity to discover all that Tuscany has to offer. Tuscany is what many people around the world envision as a true representation of Italy.

DEPARTING OCTOBER 24, 2017. For more information contact the Chamber office at 805.528.4884.

The report can only be found online at The report this year is broken out into five main sections: water, community, economy, upgrades, and safety.
