Eric Meyer, an entrepreneur and a SLO city planning commissioner, is understood to be District 3 Supervisor Adam Hill’s pick as county planning commissioner and is expected to be seated later this month. Meyer would replace Hill’s former commissioner, newly elected SLO City Councilwoman Carlyn Christianson. Meyer, the founder of Simple Shoes, is a strong local advocate for bike infrastructure and a mentor at the SLO HotHouse and has been very active in local long-range planning discussions. He is currently chair the City’s Land Use and Circulation Element task force, a role he was designated last year as a city planning commissioner. Meyer is keen to stay on the City’s task force. It is understood that he will likely need to tender his resignation to the LUCE task force shortly as he is will not be the city planning commission designate. The City is expected to open up an application period for the vacancy and Meyer will have an opportunity to apply for it. The planning commission – which has been closely following the LUCE process as it has been underway for the last year—will also need to select a representative to the task force. The move by Meyer to the County opens up a second position on the City’s planning commission; commissioner Airlin Singewald recently resigned after moving out of the city.
