The proposed project consists of the Downtown Watsonville Specific Plan. The proposed Specific Plan has been developed to articulate a community vision and a planning framework for the downtown area that would serve as a guide for the City and other public agency decision makers, community members, and stakeholders. The proposed Specific Plan provides a land use and mobility plan along with development and design regulations to guide future public and private development projects in the downtown area of Watsonville. The land use components of the Specific Plan would help the City achieve its objective of incorporating higher density commercial and housing opportunities by accommodating additional residential uses in a compact and active mixed-use environment through both new construction and adaptive reuse of historic or existing buildings. The Specific Plan envisions or is designed to accommodate within the downtown area the addition of 3,886 new residential units; 231,151 square feet of commercial development, 376,827 square feet of industrial development, and 114,572 square feet of civic space.
