Neighborhood Profile

The East Beach neighborhood is currently given over to a diverse mix of industrial, hotel-motel, residential, and public facility uses. The area north of Cabrillo Boulevard, between Santa Barbara and Milpas streets, is presently a mix of industrial development and vacant land. Currently zoned for manufacturing uses, the General Plan calls for a mix of hotel and residential development in this area. Before residential or hotel development could occur, therefore, it is necessary to change the zoning so that it conforms with the General Plan.
