The Lower State Street area contains Vera Cruz Park, and the recently renovated Railroad Depot.
Lower State Street is an area of mixed commercial and industrial uses, with a small population scattered throughout this neighborhood. The future of the lower State Street area is anticipated by the General Plan to be devoted to Hotel and Related Commercial Uses. Such future development would provide a business and tourist link between the central business district and the oceanfront. Whatever occurs in this vicinity will depend on land use policies that will result from redevelopment planning now under way.
