Serving Templeton and the Adelaida and El Pomar Estrella Planning Sub Areas of Unincorporated North San Luis Obispo County 

Templeton Area Advisory Group

History of TAAG​​

​TAAG was established in the early 1990s to help represent Templeton and the North County on issues of development within the community. TAAG and its purposes were formally recognized by Resolution 94-144 of the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors on April 5, 1994.  The area for which TAAG provides comments is the same area as the Templeton Unified School District (TUSD), and has the same boundaries as the TUSD -- a land area of 58 square miles. The TAAG board is composed of nine volunteers -- seven delegates and two alternates. They are residents of the Templeton area who are selected by registered TAAG-resident voters in annual elections held in March.  TAAG has no staff but these volunteers.

Mission Statement

TAAG solicits community input on proposed development in the Templeton, Adelaida, and El Pomar- Estrella area and advises County officials on land use plans and ordinances. TAAG uses established County standards, the Templeton Community Plan, and the Templeton Community Design Plan as guidelines for its recommendations. After a public review, TAAG reports its recommendations to County officials.​ TAAG has no oversight authority over the Land Use Permit Application process.

​Regular monthly meetings of TAAG are held on the third Thursday of every month. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m., and are held at the Templeton Community Service District boardroom, located at 206 5th Street in Templeton (next to the fire station).
