Santa Cruz County Capital Facility Planning

Opportunities and Challenges Study 4/23/2019
Campus Master Plans Gensler Project Plan 8/15/2019

The County of Santa Cruz recently adopted a Strategic Plan that establishes a new vision, mission, values, focus areas and goals to guide the County through 2024. The County is now prepared to develop a Long-Range Facilities Plan (LRFP) and undertake master planning activities for selected County facilities that will support and implement the Strategic Plan and provide policy direction for capital facility development over the next 15 years.

Although the County owns and manages facilities throughout the County, a large portion of its facilities are concentrated on three urban campuses that have been owned by the County for many decades. These three campuses are the County Government Center located at 701 Ocean Street in downtown Santa Cruz, the Emeline campus located at the intersection of Highway 1 and Emeline Avenue at the edge of the City of Santa Cruz city limits, and the Freedom Boulevard campus located on Freedom Boulevard within the City of Watsonville. The first two campuses that will be focused on for devloping LRFPs will be the Freedom Boulevard and Ocean Street locations.
