Document Description
The Castroville Community Plan serves as a long-range plan designed to direct growth and development in a manner than enhances the quality of life in the community of Castroville. The proposed Community Plan provids a guide to promote growth that effectively uses land resources, and provides a safe and attractive environment that is environmentally sensitive and economically viable, while preserving those significant qualities that define Castroville as a unique and desirable community. The proposed Community Plan for Castroville identifies several areas for future growth and redevelopment that have been designated as "Opportunity Areas," which include the Merritt Street Corridor Opportunity Area, Cypress Residential Opportunity Area, Commuter Train Station Opportunity Area, North Entrance Opportunity Area, and New Industrial Opportunity Area. In addition, there are several vacant and underutilized properties within the community that provide additional in-fill development areas and redevelopment opportunities. If the Opportunity Areas and additional in-fill areas were fully developed as contemplated by the proposed Community Plan, approximately 1,655 residential units, 40 new parcels of light industrial development, 50,000 square feet of commercial development, several recreational parks, and a commuter rail station would be built on approximately 403 acres.
